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 Wallaby’s. Pours dark as most porters with a tiny head and spotty lacing on the goblet. The aroma is straight up rich chocolate, but it’s 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. It’s 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, it’s well done.

From a bomber, poured into a tall glass stein. Initial aroma of chocolate milk (a la Nesquick.) Pours dark opaque brown with a dark tan head. Delicate lacing. Tastes of chocolate milk and malt, with a very chocolate finish. Mouthfeel is a little thin, though still creamy and appropriate for the flavor.

glennmastrange (2383) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted and dark chocolate for the malt, light herbs and dough for the yeast, with notes of cola and dust. Head is small, frothy, light beige with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and has a lightly alcoholic finish. Nice Porter with a heavy dose of chocolate.

Nice chocolate aroma but not over powering chocolate taste. Very smooth finish. Not a beer you would want to drink multiples at one time, but very enjoyable.

W aromacie świetna czekolada. Świetna piana. W smaku pyszna mleczna czekolada. Mógłby mieć więcej ciała ale ogólnie super.

12 oz into tulip. Almost black color with 1" beige head which slowly dissipates leaving some moderate lacing. Aroma is malty with strong notes of sweet chocolate shortly after pour, then fading out a bit, leaving way to some light roasted notes. Taste is light to medium sweet with maybe a touch of bitterness toward the finish. Taste is malty with a light roast and notes of dark chocolate. Medium bodied beer with a fairly thin but lightly creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth, somewhat lingering finish. Overall enjoyable beer if you like chocolate porters. Basically and average beer for the style.
