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.

[Tap] Jet black pour with a brown colored nitro foam head on top. Sweet and chocolaty aromas. Flavors of Belgian milk chocolate, cream, mocha, earthy hops and vanilla. Creamy consistency. Coating mouthfeel. A tad on the sweet side, but the flavors come together very well. Good stuff. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Shake pours black with a thick foamy light tan head that lasts a long while. The aroma is dark chocolate and coffee, however, what stands out is that the chocolate smell is the closest to the actual smell that Iíve ever encountered in a beer. The flavor is dark chocolate with small amounts of coffee and caramel. Again, the chocolate flavor is very well done and delicious. Overall this is a solid beer.

Sweet chocolate aroma. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Thin mouth feel. Sweet taste with a hint of mint. No bitter aftertaste. On nitro at Yard House Las Vegas LINQ.

Looks like Porter smells like a chocolate phosphate but was pretty empty on feel. I didnít get any chewiness or depth. I have a sixer to decide. ainít no Anchor or Founders though.

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is chocolate right away. Creamy, lightly burnt malt, bitterness at the end. Cocoa in the lasting after taste. Great lacing.

Poured from a bottle. Great frothy brown head, good lacing, a harbinger of smoothness to come. Surprising coffee aroma, not as much on the taste. Good beer, makes me proud to be a Buffalo.

Smells very much like chocolate milk. The main problem is that the flavor isnít as satisfying as the aroma. A little thin.

On tap at Warrenís Ale House in Wheaton, IL., and nitro dispensed to a fluted sampler, showing a cascading effect that settled to a dark brown hue, with some amber highlighting, silky & tight, light tan head foam, and thick, wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was Hershey-like milk chocolate, and creaminess. The taste included mocha notes, modest bitterness, and soft carbonation, in a light to medium body, with texture that was a little watery, but on the whole, fairly tasty.
