Notes / Commercial Description:
All you suckas gather ’round, a brand new dude is coming to town! Thick Silky is a man with a plan and a hung Fu backhand, you dig? He runs the chocolate game in this city, and when it comes to all the haters he shows no pity. With his fine, foxy ladies sitting pretty in a tricked out 73 Cadillac SeVille, he’s down with the double chocolate oatmeal scene and keeping it real. So, if you crave satisfaction, Dick Silky is the man who’s got that action!

Served in a pint glass at the brewery.

Relatively lively carbonation for a porter but soft. Smooth, medium-full body.

Very dark reddish brown. Clear, with a proportionate tan head that had good retention and left patterned lacing on the glass. Quite nice looking.

Aroma: Lots of dark malt and coffee with just a hint of spicy hops and dark chocolate.

Taste follows nose, although there's just a hint of coffee in the finish. Some dark chocolate and molasses too. Mildly bitter overall.

Good flavor and aroma, easy to drink, and satisfying.

Upon my first sip, I get lots of bitter chocolate and coffee, with a slight bit of nutiness. There's a dry and bitter aftertaste too. The dryness is a bit surprising but it actually works well.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. Bottled 9/5/14. Served in a Red Brick snifter.

Pours chocolate brown with chestnut highlights under the light. The finger and a half cap of biege froth lingers and leaves some nice clumpy lacing.

Chocolate aplenty in the aroma with complementary rolled oats, dark malts and caramel. Considerably more chocolate becomes apparent as it warms

Classic porter flavors through and through with a focus on chocolate. Roasty malt, bittersweet bakers cocoa, creamed coffee, flaked oats, burnt sugar and a faint hint of alcohol. As in the nose, the warmer it gets the more chocolatey goodness there is.

Silky, smooth, medium light body with moderate carbonation. Chocolate fudge, coffee and an earthy bitterness in the finish.

As a stout, Thick Silky could come up short but this is a damn solid porter. Roasty and chocolatey with a smooth, light body. Good work by Red Brick.

Poured from a bomber into a room temperature tulip.

A: Pours a rich, dark chocolate brown with ruby highlights. Has a thick off-white head that thins out but maintains and laces well.

S: Light notes of toast and coffee, with bolder notes of chocolate and nuttiness. A whiff of hops.

T: Coffee and chocolate with notes of toast. A little nutty caramel on the back end.

M: Decent body for a porter, also with good carbonic bite that scrubs the palate well. A little on the thin side for a "thick" porter.

O: "Thick and Silky" may be a stretch. The flavors are nice and as a porter I'm on board, but I was expecting something a little on the heavier side after reading the awesomely 70's label. Still a good beer.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a deep, dark, auburn-brown coloring with a low profile, filmy, light, off-white head. Aromas of milk chocolate, bitter roasted coffee, cocoa nib, and some campfire smoke. Light and extremely chocolatey nose. Flavors are bittersweet baker's chocolate forward, with a dark roasted coffee undertone, subtle char notes, earthy highlights, and a pretty solid bitterness in the tail-end. Balanced and flavorful, on a smooth, dry body. The aftertaste is more of the chocolate and bitter roasted blend, and has a dry, lingering roast finish.

Appearance: Black with light brown around the edges. Dark creme head and nice sheets of lacing.

Aroma: Rich powdered milk chocolate. Touch of roast and oat-y grain.

Flavor: Roast and chocolate are reminiscent of bakers chocolate/cocoa.

Mouthfeel: Definitely silky, and thick for a porter.
