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

Nose: roast coffee, dark roasted malt. Occasional floral/herbal notes. Taste: lots of dark roast coffee. Just enough bittering hops. Good mouth feel, not too syrupy.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Coffee bitter like taste. Solid porter, but lacking a bit of mouth feel. Malt in the middle, but only slight.

gnoff (7975) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2012
12 fl oz bottle at Abraxas, Miami Beach, on December 2, 2012.
Clear dark brown color, huge rocky tan head. Sweet, spicy, herbal scent. Smoke, mineral, malty, toffee taste. Coffee aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Very spritzy mouthfeel.
When drinking from the bottle instead of the glass it grows a lot in the mouth. Some dough scent too.
I think this bottle was a bad one.

jjgmd (1507) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Pours a dark mahogany brownish black, with a large foamy head. Nose is malty and chocolate. Taste is malty with a nice chocolate taste, not over the top regarding sweetness. Carbonation is soft, with a medium texture. Finish is dry, and finishes light despite the ABV. Quaff Score 7 / 10

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
12oz bottle $2 at Beverage World in Ft. Oglethorpe. Dark black-brown, which is it? Smells roasty and in line with the style. Taste was rich, almost sweet, too much alcohol for a porter in my opinion but this was still not a chore to drink and tasted just fine. I would just prefer a porter at 5% abv so I can have more than one. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-26-2010 23:16:24

Bottle.
Pours a decent mahogany with a nose of cocoa cigar wrapping, roasted nuts, light caramel, and a touch of tobacco. Flavor is a sweet and ever-so-light smoky caramel with pipe tobacco essence and a touch of toffee. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Bottle from The Beer Cellar. Thanks!
Pours a beautiful, rich brown/black with an aroma of coffee and cigarette ash. Flavor is a rush of coffee bitterness and cocoa. Tobacco makes an appearance between sips. Nice mouthfeel; flavors are spread well. I want more of this. This is good stuff.

Bottle from Warehouse Wine and Liquor in Spring Hill. Pours a typical porter brown with an off-tan head. Nose is roast, dark chocolate, black coffee, and earth. Flavor is similar with some nice roast and chocolate in there along with earth. This is a nice somewhat dry porter that was medium in body and enjoyable.
Earlier Rating: 11/1/2009 Total Score: 3.3
On draft at OTH. Sounds delicious... Pours dark cola brown with a white head. Nose is roast, coffee, oatmeal, dry bitterness, bittersweet chocolate, and roasty bitterness. Flavor is similar with chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and lingering bitterness. Medium body and ok overall.
