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.

Pours a deep brown color with a chocolate aroma. Taste is like a chocolate brownie cake in liquid form, delicious. A smooth mouthfeel, that coated the tongue with a coffee flavor. A dark rich chocolate mixed with hops that was velvety and smooth.

This bottled brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark ruby red brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was dark chocolate and dark malt. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium chocolate aftertaste. The smooth flavor contained notes of semi-sweet chocolate and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Dark black body with off white foamy head. Nice aroma of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, cereal. Taste is semi-sweet, a touch of dryness. Quite a nice chocolate porter.

Dittoson (22) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Chocolate indeed. This brew delivers on its name by providing a chocolate essence that permeates in taste, smell, and appearance. Top that off with a 5.9% potency and you have a nice combination.
