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.

Tap at World of Beer Baltimore. Pours clear dark brown to black with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cookie malt, dates and figs with earthy hops. Flavor is chocolate, cookie malt, light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is like a dark chocolate milk shake.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, no head or lacing. Smell is rich sweet chocolate, cocoa, a bit of coffee. Taste is Hershey’s chocolate syrup, decaf coffee, cocoa. Felt like I was drinking a sweet tasty velvet chocolate cake. Medium carbonation, kinda syrup texture.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Tap at Denver International’s Boulder Tap House in Jeppesen terminal. Black body with ruby edges and a short-lived tan head. Lots of cocoa and chocolate in the nose, low sweetness. Also some moderate roast, caramel malt. Aroma is a touch sweeter than the flavor, but otherwise follows suit with the cocoa and roast. A touch dry for a dessert beer in my book, but nonetheless leaning in that direction. Bitterness peaked at a 3, not getting much burnt ashy character, thankfully. Moderate prickly carbonation with a light to medium body. Solid enough.

Poured from a bottle. Amazing aromas of dark chocolate, cream, and a touch of coffee, and then more chocolate. Deep, dark brownish-red color with a tan head. Amazing flavors that are most easily likened to a chocolate milkshake. Tons of cocoa flavor that’s very smooth, as well as some roasted malt and just the tiniest hint of hops at the end to give it some assertion and keep it from being too sweet. This is one of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. Not your traditional porter, but a PERFECT dessert beer. Highly recommended.

Taste: moderately sweet, chocolate initial flavor and finish. Average duration. Palate: medium-to-full body, creamy texture, flat carbonation. Overall: unique porter. Outstanding flavor.

Nikiel (875) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours thin dark brown with dark tan foam. Smells like a chocolate malt or hot chocolate. Tastes initially like pure chocolate, but fades into a lightly bitter coffee with a milky slightly hoppy finish.

I am not a fan of chocolate or porter, but this stuff was great...just like a chocolate shake.
