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

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.

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.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2011
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.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Clear, cola/red-brown body. Smallish head leaves a lasting, tan ring. Big milk chocolate in the nose with some medium roast coffee. A hint of raisin. Flavor brings more chocolate - in your face here. Still milky, but edges into the darker, more bitter realm of chocolate. Coffee roast comes up strong in the finish...almost espresso like. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation for the style. Drinks easy. Lightly sweet up front with a fairly bitter finish. A nice, well done robust porter.

glennmastrange (2444) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Moderate malt note of toasted, light to moderate hop and yeast notes of herbs and earth, with charcoal, cola and milk in the background. Head is small, frothy, light tan with a bit of slippery lacing until it fully diminishes. Color is clear dark red/brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a chalky and dry finish. Toasty, rich aromas and flavors from Porter, nice.

deyholla (8334) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle at freetail release. Pours a clear brown with a thick tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice roasted malt note with some backing coffee and toast. Flavor is begins full of roasted malts with some backing toast and alcohol comes out in the finish.
Earlier Rating: 4/7/2010 Total Score: 3.4
Bottle. Pours near black with a slight red hue and the head is dissipating quickly brown head. Aroma has strong notes of chocolate with underlying oats and roasted malts. Flavor builds with a bitter chocolate flavor. The flavor began a bit sweet with more of an oat flavor. Nice and smooth on the tongue.

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Bottle from jrob_21 - thanks, Jonathan! My 50th porter. Dark chocolate aroma with a smattering of aroma hops. Touch of biscuit, too, along with a hint of coffee and what I know to be oatmeal. Coke-colored pour with a light-brown head (and good, lasting retention). Dry, roasted taste with the oily, slightly acidic undertones I’ve come to love in oatmeal stouts; also reminds of coffee without the burnt espresso roast. Only lightly bitter, and then only a times, with just a bit more sweetness. Touch of wood. Watery body with just a little bit of crackle; aftertaste is dry and roasted and leaning pleasantly toward an ashen feel. Alcohol very well hidden. Basically a thinned version of the Dark Horse stouts I love, with the "oatmeal" coming through much more than the "double chocolate". Hugely drinkable. Pleasant, well-made porter! [5/6/2008: 3.8]

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a scant beige head. Nose is strong dark chocolate and roast, looks like this is one of the men rather than the boys. Deep, dry roast with choco and even tobacco leaf. Bitter with huge malt, hops are prickling and provide excellent balance. Medium body is anything but dull. Among the darker, roastier porters, this offering excels. [9/8/2011: 3.8]
