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.

hackobock (3486) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2016
October 3, 2015. Bottle at SBWF.
Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty and smooth roasted with milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, coffee, hints of vanilla. Taste is medium sweet, malty and soft bitter. Finish is smooth bitter with some roasted notes, coffee, cocoa, sweet caramel, vanilla and creamy milk chocolate. Medium bodied, creamy, soft carbonation.
Good, perhaps a bit sweet and one dimensional.

This really is well done for how described. At brewery thicker than on tongue in bottle at home. Cream chocolate malt. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super chocolately, very smooth but is a bit too sweet to finish more than a 12oz.
