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.

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

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 (304) - 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.

Nitro. Darkest brown with a lasting tan head, bc damn dude it’s nitro and shiznit. Big, big, BIIIIIIGGGGG chocolate aroma. Don’t f**k. This is what it is. Sweet chocolate milkshake flavor, sure to bring all the boys to the yard (hopefully something you want, for me I was like dudes come on I’m not Jared Fogle or something I don’t know how all these boys got in my yard, SCREW YOU KELIS!!!). Nibby. Very nibby. You drink this and you all like damn dogg they done threw ALLLLLL the cacao nibs up in this bitch! Smooth and silky, silkk the shocker, but you know that’s mostly the nitro. A legit beer experience that I recommend for all beer geeks once in a lifetime at least.

This pours a dark brown/black color with a slight head. The aroma is sweet with roasted malts and cocoa. The taste is big, bold, and robust. The flavor is smooth and full of roasted flavors that leave a lingering sweet and chalky after taste. Pretty good stuff and worth trying!

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Enjoyed the nitro edition at the Yard House in Vegas watching my team play in the Grey Cup. Pours a dark brown colour with a nitro creamy beige head, good retention and thick creamy lacing. Nice chocolate nose remind me of the Young’s Double Chocolate stout. Eventually, light grass shows up. The taste starts off with chocolate but the hops really kick in quickly. Roasted malt lingers. Medium-heavy bodied. Quite a nice twist on the Young’s, adding the American touch of more hops. My team lost.
