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.

12 oz best before June 11, 2014. Purchased from Wallabyís. Pours dark as most porters with a tiny head and spotty lacing on the goblet. The aroma is straight up rich chocolate, but itís natural and not cloying. Yeah, I mean, smelling this stuff is like smelling a dark chocolate bar. The flavor is extra chocolatey, but again not syrupy or candy-like. Itís fairly sweet with loads of milk chocolate but the finish has a bit of bitterness like cacao nibs. The finish, aside from being pure chocolate, is even a little nutty. For this kind of thing, itís well done.

DocJitsu (901) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with ruby glitz around the bottom edge of the glass. Giant light caramel colored. Chocolate and light plastic nose. Moderately thick and just the slightest burn. Big chocolate flavor. Bitters out just a fudge (pardon the pun). Very tasty!

Bottle bought at GBBF 2014 at the American Bar. Opaque very dark brown to black, tan head. Nose on this is amazing. Sugary chocolate, lactic. Really like a very sweet and chocolatey milkshake with cocoa dust and a very rich dark chocolatey syrup. Taste is a bit of a letdown though. Very dusty, musty chocolate. Very powdery, sweet sugary, lactic, milky. Bit one dimensional on the flavour and too sweet.

Bottle picked up at GBBF, íenjoy by 10/14í.Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is kind of like out of date chocolate candy - a real dusty, fusty mould to it. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Very dusty, fusty, musty chocolate - all old and one-note. Tired and unpleasant. Very poor.

I like chocolate stout most of the time, so this beer started with an advantage. Itís very smooth. Great mouth feel. Medium chocolate flavor. Iíll be on the lookout for this one again.

On tap: The aroma has moderate-heavy cocoa powder with just a hint of roast. Itís a dark brown with some orange highlights when held to the light. It has a two finger creamy beige head that a thick film and leaves a nice sheet of lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy cocoa powder and milk chocolate. The finish has light roasted coffee with a hint of nuts. Itís light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Remembering being pretty stoked on this due to the lush creamy body of milk chocolate and cocoa, hints of roast, sweetened, and not too overpowering. A bit light actually, but itís ok. Dessert!
