GBBF Day 1. Bottleshare. Thanks to whoever opened this! Almost clear dark brown beer, thin tan head. Palate is light and crisp. Good fine carbonation. Tangy chocolate malts, some creamy sweetness. Mild dark chocolate and bourbon biscuit. Minerally crisp finish. Not bad.

Bottle at gbbf. Browny reddy coloured pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma I’d toffee, pine, chewy caramel. Flavour is smooth oat, milk choc, faint orange. Coconut. Palate is velvety, smooth, medium full bodied, smooth.. Solid porter, very flavoursome.

Bomber, shared by KansaiBeerLvrs. Thanks! Nice chocolatey nose. Smooth dark roast maltiness, slight metallic note in mid palate. Thin-medium body. A double in aroma, for sure. The nose promises more than the flavors and body deliver. Still, nice enough.

Tap at Craft Beer Live 2015. Fruity nose, caramel, smoke, chocolate. Silky body. Flavors of wood, coffee, some chocolate but not enough to call it double. Nice.

Red Brick Thick & Silky Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout 7.7%
A reddish brown pour with a beige head. It has a savoury chocolate nose with a touch of roastiness. Med-light bodied with a semi-slick mouthfeel. The taste is roasty chocolate, well balanced and nice but the body is on the thin side.

Bomber from Total Wine in Jensen Beach as Thick & Silky Chocolate Porter, for my 75th porter rating! Pours very dark brown with a tan head leaving some lace. Aroma has strong liquid chocolate and caramel and some roast. Later light licorice and some soy show through, but the choco/caramel are dominant. Taste is chocolate roasty with a solid caramelly malty base. Sweetly roasty, and smooth as advertized. Medium to full bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes long and sweet with some roast. Chocolate leads and is main. Nice stuff from this brewer! 14.9
