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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black color and topped by a small layer of tan colored foam that quickly settles to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of darkly roasted malts, sweet milk and dark chocolate, vanilla, a touch of cream, and some earthy roast. The flavor follows with the milk and dark chocolate up front to go with vanilla cream, dark malts, and some earthy roast bitterness on the back end to add some balance. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and smooth carbonation that leads to a lingering finish of roast and chocolate. Nice and tasty chocolate Porter.

(draft @ Zebb’s Deluxe Grill & Bar - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a creamy tan head. Chocolate, cocoa and coffee in the aroma. Flavor is like a really smooth chocolate milkshake. Mocha and vanilla abound with a smooth and sweet chocolate finish. [1/6/16]

First of all, this must be unreal dispensed with Nitro on tap! Aroma: Malted milkshake or leche malteada as we call it down here in Miami. Or like biting into some Whoppers! That’s actually exactly what it’s like. Smells like a box of Whoppers. Totally incredible. Smells like sweet chocolate and malt. A touch of cinnamon also. Appearance: Very dark brown color with a substantial tan, leaving lots of lacing. Head retention appears to be excellent. Taste: Upon entry it briefly tastes like a chocolate milkshake. Slightly sweet and no bitterness is felt at all. Palate: The only part it came up a little short. This is where the bitterness that is there comes out the most. The aroma put this beer up so high in the sky that the palate evened things out a bit. On any beer, this would be an exceptional thing. Medium bodied, very smooth finish. Soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. A truly amazing example of American greatness.

Dark and heavy in flavor. I found it to be much more coffee flavored than chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1711) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2016
12 oz bottle from AOPD beers of the Month The porter poured a deep black with a tan head and no lacing. The aroma of chocolate and roasted malts greets you. This is a very velvety porter. Maybe on the sweet side but not too bad. The chocolate is experienced throughout the experience. The medium body porter has soft carbonation. This is one smooth porter no bite no bitterness. Like a chocolate milk shake with some vanilla in the aftertaste.

GSH1976 (288) - Delaware, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours a dark color (not as dark as a stout) with very little light visible when I hold up the glass. There is a little khaki colored head. Aroma is reminds of the smell when you open up a hot chocolate packet with a hint of nuttiness. Taste does follow the nose but to be honest it reminds me more of a tootsie roll than plain chocolate. Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish.
