COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weep for your Northern brethren: Long winters, suspect college football, and perhaps worst of all, no Red Brick beer. Since 1993 weíve been brewing fine craft beers for the South and only the South. Weíre proud to stand alongside grits, hound dogs and Mama as embodiments of the Southern lifestyle. Weíre proud to be beer from around here. Until í10 was known as Red Brick Double Chocolate Oatmeal Porter.

Fron Lou18 in a recent trade. Wow, this is really a nice porter! a rich dark brown with a tan head that fades to a thin layer sitting on the top. roasted malts and chocolate flavors abound with a hint of coffee on the finish. a wonderfully crafted and very smooth drinking porter. superb in every way!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2010 Bottle acquired in trade with goldtwins. Poured a dark ruby red/brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, and oatmeal. Tastes of oatmeal (stronger in the tastes than the smells), dark fruits, chocolate and coffee. Light bitter finish. Tasty - Iím glad I had the chance to drink this one! 8 4 8 4 17 Reated..3/9/10. Same aroma and taste profile, but I over rated the 1st go around...

Bottle pours dark cherry, nearly brown, mediocre light brown head, frothy, with fairly attractive lacing. † Dry chocolate powder on the nose, slight Oat, seems somewhat chalky. † Semi-sweet chocolate on first sip, hop bitterness on the tongue. † Sorta reminds me of Pike XXXXX Stout, but not as dry and chalky (which I dont care for). † Body and mouthfeel seem fairly mediocre. † Finishes fairly thin, at least not as big as I thought. † Tiz alright... light camprire on the finish, along wih some coffee bean & semi-sweet chocolate. † A decent beer from Georgia... † Thanks goes out to goldtwins for the trade!

Wow, thanks to beeryum for this one, which is higher rated than I anticipated, and a "make-it-or-break-it" beer to boot! Just lovely! Pours deep ruby thorugh light with two-finger off-white head. Aroma of roasty malt, chocoff, nuts, cabernet, cognac. Definite prize winning aroma. Iím shuddering with anticipation as I draw it to my eager mouth and tongue (and the beer, too)....Yes, indeed, heavy roasty malt coupled with a firm chocolate presence and some cinnamony Ovaltinish element and espresso at the finish. I swear I taste hot frothy cream in this. Fantastic complexity and mouthfeel. More chocolate syrupy and cinnamon taste as it warms. I came into this review upset that I didnít have a blockbuster for #1,600. I come out of it knowing that I did, I just didnít realize it. This is one of my great surprises of 2005 thus far, and I recommend it to anyone. One of the better porters Iíve ever had, with as much character as any of them.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2005
bottle, thx to goldtwins, aroma is rich with chocolate, but also has hints of vanilla, and some cinnamon, as well as a nice toasted oatmeal scent. beer is dark brown, not completely opaque, but close, with a thin layer of creamy head that fades down to some lacing. heavy chocolate flavor with a load of malts, coffee on the end, with a decent amount of bitterness throughout the entire glass. the aftertaste has a definite coffee tang to it. body is medium to full, not as rich as some, but alot better than others in terms of mouthfeel. a nifty little porter.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Dark brown color (almost black) with a thin, lasting tan head. Aroma is nice and roasted malts with some floral hops. Taste is as good of an oatmeal taste that Iíve had. Sweet and bitter. Chocolate and burnt flavors all mingled together. I think Iím getting some sage in all of this. Just fantastic stuff. Thanks Beeryum for this gem.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Wow, thanks to BEERYUM!. The aroma was wonderful Chocolate right up front. Poured a dark mahogany, thick foamy rich creamy head. Ahh, this is defiantly a Christmas beer. Chocolate, but spices as well. Cinnamon and clove. this is complex and fun, some fruit as well. Smooth, and I do not even taste the ABV. I canít wait till this hits 10 ratings and gets official. Wish I would have shared this, spread the joy.

Black color with a thin head. Cholcate aroma with lots of malts. More chocolate in the body and and some bitterness. A little bit of spice and some earth overtones. Nice. Goldtwins rules!
