COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our twist on the traditional american porter, Shake chocolate porter is black in color with rich, dark chocolate aromatics and flavors and subtle coffee-like notes. This unique brew blends five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouth feel.

Draft at brass tap in Fl. Nitro version. Super sweet aroma & flavor. Definitely a dessert beer. Nitro makes it more so. So creamy. Chocolate with some coffee

Pours a clear deep dark brown with a medium head of tan foam. Somewhat thin body with a nice chocolate aroma. Nice cocoa flavor that isnít too sweet or too dull. OK but not great.

On draft. My first impression when I smelled this was "that smells like hot chocolate." My second impression, after I drank some of it, was "that tastes like alcoholic chocolate milk." This is so chocolatey, smooth, and milky that if you stuck this in a Nesquick box no one would notice that you were drinking at an elementary school basketball game.

Pours very dark, has a nice creamy head. This creaminess was in part because I had the Nitro pour at the brewery in Boulder. It has a wonderfully smooth feel and finish with a slight note of coffee, but the overall notes are chocolate that linger on the pallet. It's great to sip and just enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Cafe Sara, july 3rd 2015. Black body with a medium brown head. Aroma is malty with a roasty edge, some cocoa notes. Taste of coffee, malt and a choclate taste that resembles what one would find in a norwegian "advent calendar" - which Iím afraid isnít exactly the best chocolate around. Except from that it is a well crafted and smooth porter.†
