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.

Dark brown. Thin head. Big coffeeish aroma with light chocolate notes. Rick, thick porter with light smoky character, and lots of coffee notes. A big misleading to call it "porter" when clearly they are aiming for something a little bigger than that name unadorned implies, but it is a pretty good beer.

Dark brown colour. Oaty, malty, nutty aroma with silky milk chocolate accents. Malty with nice silky chocolatey notes, but some astringent woody ones as well. Dry, woody, hoppy finish.

Draught, Taco Mac in Roswell. Opaque dark brown-black, small head with lacing. Dark fruit, chocolate, black cherries in aroma. Soft creamy mouthfeel but mellow body. A very solid and drinkable brew.

From notes. First reviewed 1/14/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. This has a dark walnut brown color with a visible ruby tint, more obvious in the edges of the glass. A thick and creamy beige head forms and retains nicely. Nice sheets of lace. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, oats, vanilla, and coffee beans are all noticeable in the aroma. The taste begins with a roasted malt backbone, with coffee and vanilla providing the support. Chocolate flavors meander throughout each sip. Roast coffee flavor steps it up as the sip progresses, and what I assume is some hop spiciness and bitterness. The finish is very lightly sweet and coffee bitter. Overall the mouthfeel is solid. Quite creamy and smooth, although a touch grainy. The bitter quality of the taste dries out the tongue a little bit. Fuller than medium carbonation and a fuller than medium body. I was actually expecting more from a 7.7% porter, though. I like the interaction of the chocolate and oats. Not overly complex, but well done and enjoyable. Worth revisiting.

(12oz bottle thanks to drowland) clear light brown, with no bubbles. Nose of nuts, chocolate, marshmallow. Taste of medium sweet nuts, cola, chocolate malt, fairly sweet. Easy to drink and not bad. Thin body with light carbonation, sweet linger. Easy to drink, quite nutty.

Deep cloudy red brown color with off white lacing. Nice medium chocolate aroma that leads imto a medium bodied beer with similar qualities. Great little beer for the cooler weather seasons.

2/22/12. 12oz bottle. Didn’t realize I hadn’t had this before and/or it’s new... dark brown pour with a small khaki head. Light aroma with milk chocolate and a touch of roast. Slightly sweet chocolate flavor as well with some roasty bitterness. Aside from the fact that it’s a little watery, I can’t say this is that bad, honestly.

On tap in a tulip. Solid black pour with a large brown head. The aroma is milk chocolate with dusty grain. The flavor is somewhat mild with a hint of chocolate, a touch of roast, and not much else going on.

Bottle from Liz. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roast dark malt with chocolate and maybe a hint of coffee. Med + body. Flavor is dark milk chocolate with smooth burnt malt and mild coffee. Good porter.

Pours very dark brown with a large foamy tan head. Smells like chocolate. Also toasted malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate over toasted malt. Finishes a bit chalky and pretty dry. Maybe a touch of smoke. Or not. Quite smooth.

Bottle. Pours a cola-like brown with a fizzy head and aromas of toasty malt and a bit of cola and dark sugar. Flavor is a bit thin, but decent. Mouthfeel could be a little thicker too.
