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.

Lots and lots of chocolate in the nose and in the taste. It's a mix of sweet milk chocolate and dark chocolate with some other underlying sweetness. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Milk chocolate and roasty malt aroma. Deep mahogany with a large tan head. Roasty malt and milk chocolate flavor. Medium body, lively carbonation.

Hopmaestro (628) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2015
In your face aroma from sweet artificial chocolates, but there’s something that has me sitting there and inhaling the stuff for a long time. Besides the obvious cocoa there’s vanilla and mild malts. Taste is chocolate milk with an earthier and slightly herbal touch. Mild coffee with milk chocolates. A bit thin in the body, but really delish.

Just a mild chocolate flavor. I'd like a little more. Overall good Porter but maybe just a slight aftertaste that isn't my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a murky medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was big milk chocolate and some caramel. Flavor was really like a chocolate milkshake, extremely frothy and creamy, and chocolatey. Good.

On tap at industry. Pours a dark brown with a frothy white head. Aromas of pretty much chocolate. Taste is sweet and smooth. Taste is pretty much like a milk shake. Maybe a new guilty pleasure favorite.

Beautiful beer, opaque black with a creamy tan head. Some roast espresso notes, very prominent chocolate. Lacto sweetness. Slight bit of roasted bitterness. Fairly sweet. Long kinda watery finish, medium body, kinda chewy. Balance is a bit off, very one note. Pleasant enough.

Just a taster at Fox & Hound Aurora, served on nitro. It may be unfair to rate this right after a Not Your Father’s Root Beer, but let’s see how this one goes. Very deep brown, almost black, more like a Stout except the head is a tad lighter. Smell is distinctly of chocolate roast malt more than chocolate addition. But not roasty or astringent. Taste settles more into a sweet Stout neighborhood. Perhaps it’s because of the desire to bring in a cocoa character. After a few sips, though, my nose does pick up a sense of chocolate bar. But this actually comes in pretty dry. A little smoother than a roasty stout, a bit more flavor than a porter. That is not a bad position to be in.

I really love this beer, well at least out of a nitrogen tap where it keeps its head because with the head when you put it to your mouth you get the smell of a chocolate milkshake. The taste is really in the combination smell of your mouth and nose at the same time. Light for heavy of a head, easy to drink and far better than a hot chocolate if you are drinking for comfort inside.
