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.

This is the most chocolate that I’ve ever tasted in a beer. This porter lives up to its name and has a chocolate shake feel to it. Creamy in texture with chocolate throughout. Finishes sweet. Excellently put together and I really enjoyed this one.

Very rich flavors poured from the bottle. Like chocolate cake with a smooth mouthfeel. Some would think this too sweet, but it definitely fits the bill as a dessert beer. Lots of cocoa with no malt graininess. Maybe coffee in the finish, but surely still sweet.

Bottle: pours a very nice, dark brown/black with a tan head. Aromas are very sweet chocolate... Smells like a cup of hot chocolate. Taste is pure joy... You can taste what seems to me like Swiss miss powder... And it's awesome. This is wonderful.

More porter comes through than chocolate, the aftertaste of coffee lingers for quite a while. Very good beer, unfortunately good enough that I have to share with the wife.

desurfer (1211) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draft at WOB Viera, nitro. Opaque rosewood body with typical tight nitro head. Thin mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet but not overly so, and dominated by roasted chocolate with some slight bitterness. Very tasty as a nightcap/dessert beer.

Draft at the Towne tavern. Pours black with a khaki head. What a shock! Leaves some lacing in the glass. Has a real chocolaty thing on the tongue. Very nice. Finishes chocolatly. Nice!
