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

Bottle courtesy of goldtwins, thanks again Larry! Black oily pour with a somewhat creamy tan head. The aroma is light, but roasty elements are there...some chocolate and a bit of coffee. The flavor is some dark chocolate...some sour coffee and some roasted malts. The body is a tad thin, feels a bit watered down...roasty and bitter with a bit of sourness. Not bad stuff, but nothing that would get me running back.

Bottle. Crisp flavor. A tad watered-down. Sharp, bitter-sweet chocolate predominates. A good beer. Would like a larger alcohol presence.

Delirium (644) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Bottle. Pours black (just barely translucent dark brown if held up to the light), with a thick fluffy brown head. Aroma is roasty, with a bit of chocolate and coffee, noticeable sweetness, a bit of fruit, and something odd I can’t discern. Flavor is both sweet and bitter, with an extreme amount of roasted malt, and a woody finish. Some oatmeal and maybe a bit of chocolate and fruit discernible; the oatmeal contributes especially to the texture. Somewhat astringent finish. Quite good, though heavier on the "porter" and less on the "double chocolate oatmeal" subtitle. A bargain at $6/sixpack, too.

2006 bottle via goldtwins. The beer pours to a really dark yet transluscent garnet body with a creamy but quickly disapating brown head. The aroma is a deep chocolate and sweetened condensed milk dessert brownie. Hints of baked oatmeal crumble. Light vanilla and dry black patent. The flavor is very dessert like. Chocolate sugar, heavily roasted black malt. And like matta expressed, there’s hints of a cigar hiding. I’m thinking Montecristo Afrique. Also, latent baked oatmeal. The palate is nicely bitter (not hoppy bitter) with a carbonation bite and a dry yet creamy feel.

Thanks to I would suspect TheBeerCellar2 for sending the brew several months ago… should be in great shape!

Pours a majestic black body with shadowy edges of ruby. The head is a thick finely laced tan, very long lasing!
WOW! The flavor of charred BBQ ash, baker’s chocolate, Cuban espresso, but finishes with some smoke and juicy, spicy maduro cigar oils. The aroma is chocolaty but far more composed… maybe my nose is shot because I just mopped the house… it smells “Fabulaso” in here! –Very surprised by this beer… a really nice creamy palate is a pleasurable kicker!

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours opaque brown with a thin light brown head the color of brown sugar. Lots of lacing. Smells creamy. Roasted dark malt aromas, sweet and smoky. Hints of mocha. More mocha in the flavor. Lots of roasted goodness in here. Smoky and bitter coffee. Creamy like a milk stout. Long bitter smokiness in the finish. Kind of light-bodied when you consider the ABV listed. Nice flavorful beer and an easy drinker. Nice surprise.

JPDIPSO (5312) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Very dark brown color with a large tan head. Fresh cut wood, cocoa and hint of coffee in the aroma. Fairly thin and quick a bit of zip in the carbonation. Spicy malt flavors abound. Mild coffee, light allspice, dry cherries and mild cedar. Complex and a touch odd, but it works for me. Thanks Tom.

This Porter pours a deep black color from a 12oz bottle. A large sized creamy beige colored head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, some dark fruits and a little bit of roasted malts. A medium bodied porter. Malts are chocolate and coffee, but there are a lot of fruit flavors, mainly cherries as well. Kind of weird tasting, but it also kind of works, if you think of this beer as a winter ale and not strictly a porter. Hops are earthy and slightly citrusy. Smooth tasting, touch creamy in the mouthfeel. Nice soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

12oz Bottle Pours out very very foamy. Foam goes down very slow. Dark brown with a little red. With some grape tast. Thanks Indiana_Red

<!-- B -->Bottle Pours with a HUGE foamy tan head. Formed a cornice on the leeward side of the glass. Nearly a gusher. As the head slowly receded back to earth I was able to discern the color of the actual beer. Seems to be a clear very dark brown. Lots of sweet smokey chocolately notes. Flavor is smokey but plenty sweet and grapey. Some woody dark rasted flavors and a lingering bitter bite at the very end. Slightly dry. Thanks again to <!-- B -->Captain Cougar<!-- /B -->
