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.

Bulk_Carrier (3013) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - OCT 3, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a white to off white foamy one finger head that dissipated fairly quickly. Lacing is semi-thick and clingy. The smell starts off with big sweet milk chocolate hovering above some caramel and a light vanilla. The taste was extremely sweet through the chocolate. Light milky chocolate flavoring holds the fort down fairly nice and leads to a decent roasty and semi-grainy milky chocolate aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Its definitely sessionable.with a big smooth creaminess sticking to my tongue. Overall, best thing about this beer is the texture, I really liked that. This one really drinks like a chocolate milkshake. I liked it for me, but do see not as much robust/roasty coffee-ness in the aroma/flavor.

From the bottle. Dark black with a cream and sugared coffee color. Nose is heavy with milk chocolate and toffee. First mouthful follows suit, but loses much more sweetness than I expected. Coffee, a little bitter charred barrel, sugary through the middle and fades to a pleasant melted Hershey kiss. Fun change of pace.
