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

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.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
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.
Earlier Rating: 3/24/2006 Total Score: 3.4
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.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2012
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.
