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

chinchill (2924) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Served in a Laughing Skull pint glass at the brewery. Relatively lively carbonation for a porter, yet smooth. Medium+ body. Very dark reddish brown. Clear, with a thin tan head that rapidly reduces to a lasting ring. Quite nice looking but a bit light and red for a porter. Aroma: Lots of dark malt and coffee with just a hint of spicy hops. Taste follows nose, although the coffee is less pronounced until the finish. Some dark chocolate too. Good flavor and aroma, easy to drink, but lacking complexity and depth. (from Oct. 2011 notes)

Pours a very dark brown with a tan head, smells of chocolate, earthy and smoky. Taste very much like it smells and very pleasant mouthfeel, great beer shame it only comes in 4 packs

Deep amber/brown pour with thin off white head and light sticky lacing ... aroma of roasted, caramel and chocolate malts .... taste is chocolatey with a nice caramel and lightly roasted malt .... nice balanced flavors ... mouthfeel is a little slick and body isn’t too thin for a porter .... finishes dry and malty .... nice easy drinking porter abv hidden very well

youdictategood (322) - Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Dark brown pour with a large khaki head, a lot of foamy lacing sticks around. Super-sweet aroma of chocolate, malt, and caramel. Taste follows - maybe a little too sweet, and the booziness isn’t balanced in the taste. Good enough, but probably wouldn’t buy again.

buxtron (4) - - MAR 1, 2013 does not count
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.

reberiii (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2013
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 (8506) - 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.
