COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weep for your Northern brethren: Long winters, suspect college football, and perhaps worst of all, no Red Brick beer. Since 1993 we’ve been brewing fine craft beers for the South and only the South. We’re proud to stand alongside grits, hound dogs and Mama as embodiments of the Southern lifestyle. We’re proud to be beer from around here. Until ’10 was known as Red Brick Double Chocolate Oatmeal Porter.

As of late 2014 - Now known as Red Brick Thick Silky Double Chocolate Oatmeal Porter

Courtesy of CaptainCougar <P> Aroma is chocolatey with some old coffe grounds in the mix and slight almost vanilla tinged sweetness. Black color with a firm mocha head that compressed into pinky thin tan line. Fore is espresso bitter, but a little stale. Sweeter chocolate/vanilla laced oatmeal flavors follow toward a tangy ripe finish like chocolate gone bad. There are some good flavors here and some off ones. The good outweighs the bad, but the tangy/stale flavors detract a bit. Allowing it to warm doesn’t lessen the off flavors, but it does bring out more roastiness.

01.19.06 12oz bottle thanks to CaptainCougar. Nearly black pour looks oily and thick below its light brown head of dense and stickily lacing foam. Aroma is huge and chocolatey with savory and earthy hops, blueberry, some brine, and hints of lacto-sourness. Strong notes of roasted nuts come through in the flavor along with bitter chocolate and light, oaky vanilla and butter. The body is soft through the middle with a light chalkiness in the roasty dry finish. I’d never have guessed over 7%. Thanks for this treat, Tom!

12oz bottle from captaincougar...Pours a dark brown color with a airy light tan head. Head receedes leaving a thin ring around the edges. Nose is lots of chocolate and coffee, with some light molasses and brown sugar. A very sweet caramel lies deep inside the aroma. Taste starts off a little bit sour then begins the chocolate and coffee, lots of coffee, lots of chocolate. it makes your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth. Some oatmeal flavors in the end, a very heavy fizzy beer that is biiter in the end and leaves a film covering your back molars. Like a web stretched over your tongue.

I got a 6-er of this at green’s. Delicious black porter, perfect for the winter months, a bit thick for my palete, but very delicious. Amazing unique taste and smell. Had a slight acidic aftertaste that I didn’t go for, but I would buy again as it was a solid brew. I used one bottle for beer brats, works quite well for cooking too!

The best ABC beer I’ve had yet. Most impressive for them. This was a nice dark chocolate color. The aroma was malty, chocolate, oatmeal-y. The flavors were oatmeal, slight smoke, and nice roasted chocolate. Excellent malts and nice clean finish. A little to acidic but mostly smooth.

The darkest of brown that can not yet be called black. Very tan large head. I got some big chocolate, dark chocolate, on the aroma. Nice and creamy chocolate vibe in the body, kind of like puddin.

I think this is a 2004 and later version, although it does not say. Very dark beer, with deep mahogony highlights when held up to the light. Thin beige head the shrinks to a whisp pretty quickly. This is a different brew that is intriging in both aroma and flavor. The first whiff was big and choclatey with something rubbery in the background, but as it warmed the CocoPuff nature of the nose took over. Lots of chocolate in the first sip, but tons of other stuff too, like orange, purfumy soap, ash, some smoke, and in the finish the burnt coffee takes over. Chewed espresso bean dominates the aftertaste and the burbs on this one. Very interesting beer, but there is something harsh and astringent about this beer that I didn’t prefer. Thanks to CaptainCougar for letting me try this GA brew.

bottle as an extra thanks to CaptainCougar. i was surprised to see a black beer pour out of the bottle, as i expected it to be a variation on a spiced amber ale (not sure why, really...) very dark porter, with lots of starchy oatmeal and plenty of chocolate malt, tons of unsweetened chocolate powder flavor. quite tasty, and a very enjoyable seasonable beer from georgia. thanks tom, this is good stuff!

12 oz bottle, via CaptainCougar. Black pour with dark ruby highlights, clear, with a quick vanishing head. Chocolate malt nose, light roasted notes, some coffee, and hints of alcohol. Deep roasted malt flavor, espresso and bitter chocolate. Finish is espresso balanced by hoppy bitterness. I also taste some sort of spice as well, but no mention of spices on the bottle or commercial description? Light to medium body with moderate carbonation yields a pretty ho-hum mouthfeel. Pretty decent beer, but nothing to knock your socks off.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2006 Sampled at GCBC 2005 and rated from a bottle 9/19/06. - Pours near black with burgundy hues and a mostly receding tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, with chocolate and a bit of espresso roast. Taste is sweet, lightly roasty and malty. Notes of dark chocolate, licorice, and a strange finish. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with soft carbonation. The oatmeal adds a decent amount of silkiness to the mouthfeel. While enjoyable, I didn’t enjoy this one as much as everyone else.
