Red Brick Porter

As part of a beer trade with Lance Martin (beers of the Night) and Alfred Hugh Leonard III, I received a bottle of Red Brick Porter. The beer pours a dark brown color with a lofty frothy head that explodes out of the glass and leaves some lacing behind. The aroma consists of lots of toasted malts, a hint of smoke, caramel, and a bit of brown sugar. The taste is smooth and sweet at first with a solid caramel base before the roasted malts take over and give the beer a hint of smoke. The alcohol content is 7.7% ABV. This was a solid porter with a great roasty and smoky flavor, all built upon a wonderful caramel base.
