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.

Bottle shared with my wife. Pours a deep black with a medium to large tan head. Sweet milk chocolate and a bit of cocoa on the nose, a touch nutty on the back end. Medium bodied, roast and sweetness, dries out for a touch, picks up some malt. Cocoa and almost a hint of peanut butter on the finish. Sweet and roasty.

Nice dark roated malt and chocolately aroma. I really like the flavor of this; the chocolate really come through, but is not overwhelming. Plate is really nice and think. This would be soooooo good on nitro.

commonmac (614) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Tap at Stanley’s in NE. Pint glass. Dark brown with tan head and plenty of it. Aroma is full on chocolate but more like a milk chocolate. Lacing is high quality. Taste has a good chocolate flavor running throughout with just a little bit of welcomed bitterness. The smell is even more impressive than the taste. Very smooth but a little thin...not a lot of the creamy, silky mouthfeel. A very drinkable option.

Tap pour at Upstairs. It pours like a porter but tastes like a (chocolate) stout. Aroma of chocolate is present. More important is that it tastes smoother like a stout, albeit with chocolate, rather than the potential bitterness that a porter might have. A dessert beer!???

Tasted from bottle. Pours almost black with beige head. Almost looks like a cola. Good lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate with coffee. Taste is moderately sweet with mild bitterness. Nice chocolate flavor with some creamy milky sweetness along with coffee notes. Sweet on fairly light on the palate. Great and interesting tasting porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with deep garnet hues. Nose of dark chocolate nibs, light coffee and cream and faint coffee. Flavor is rich dark chocolate that fades to light bitter roast/unsweetened chocolate. Lingering chocolate and roast. Reminds me of Moo Hoo. Light. Good!

Dark, smells strongly of chocolate, medium body, creamy, fairly sweet. It was really good but I wouldn’t want to drink more than one.

Got two bottles as a gift. As the label suggests, there is a hint of chocolate on the nose. slight smell of play-doh? Good bitterness and really smooth mouthfeel. Super small bubbles for the head. Slightly warming effect from the alcohol. Solid porter in a 12oz. bottle.
