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.

Ron (2906) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2014
On tap at MacGreggor’s East Ave. Pour is blackish brown with a tan head. Aroma is of hot fudge with notes of coffee and brown sugar. Big notes of bakers chocolate, but mild bitterness. Some coffee and vanilla come through along with a faint hop presence. Very creamy and smooth taste and texture. Very Enjoyable!

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2014
Pretty much as per the commercial description. Simple and friendly with loads of chocolate aroma exhibiting excelllent lift and penetration. Flavours of course are more beer ’serious’ in the medium weight porter mould. Dry finish with some fizz.

Pours black with brown foam. The aroma is strong cocoa powder. The taste is chocolate milk shake with a high residual sweetness, despite the brewery´s claim to 39 IBU´s. This one is not for me. It might taste good on ice cream, but as a porter, the cacao nibs are simply overpowering.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked Enjoy By June 26, 2014. The pour is mud brown to about black with a lingering tan head that leaves lacing as it fades. Opaque. The nose tends to be more subtle than in my face but I certainly pick up instant cocoa and chocolate malts to live up to its title. Yet it never overwhelms. Smooth, creamy, heavy body. The taste is like pounding down a chocolate milk shake but it is not frozen. Slight bitterness on the tail side.

On tap @ Radio Maria. Dark brown with golden amber highlights. Sweet aroma and flavour of chocolate liqueur, syrupy, cloying, one-note, not my thing.

SlovakSniper (3695) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
Chocolat noir et brun au nez avec des notes rôties apaisantes. Café, cacao et malts noirs sur la langue comme une récompense pour les papilles fatiguées. Crémeuse en bouche comme un verre de lait entier. Légèrement amère avec son chocolat et sa touche de torréfaction en arrière-goût. Bien exécutée, cette bière est un après-soleil tout à fait approprié.
