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.

Unique is right. This porter actually does have some of the tastes characteristics of a chocolate shake. Quite impressive. Dark brown, nice tan head, aroma of coffee and the chocolate. Taste, well, shake, plus roasted malt with a creamy mouthfeel that could use just a tad more body to really pull off the "chocolate shake" thing. Quite good....I want more! On tap @ Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL.

A brown body with a tan head that had nice retention. Mostly cocoa in the aroma a bit of chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor was very similar. It really was like a chocolate shake. Mostly sweet but in a good way. Roasted malts added a subtle bitterness to it. Nice mouth feel. Smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown, clear porter with a tall light tan head. Strong dark chcocolate, not sweet, subtle coffee. Medium palate -- similiar to some stouts except for body. Good -- be in mood for chocolate.

16oz draft into a pint glass. Pours a deep brown with a thick disappearing off-white head that laces the glass. Scents of dark chocolate, s’mores, and roasted malts. Flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, and toasted grains. Thin on the mouth for the style of beer, but overall a good pour.

Pours cola brown with aroma of chocolate and some roasted malt. Flavor is much the same- lots of milk chocolate with some roasted malt. Creamy body.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, tootsie rolls, roasted malt. Very chocolatey aroma. Flavor of chocolate malt, perhaps a touch artificial and sweet. Decent chocolate porter, drinkable, but a little artificial. 7/4/6/3/13 (3.3/5)

Like other Boulder releases, it is smooth and enjoyable, but not outstanding. A little milk chocolate and some smoky porter taste.

Tap on nitro. Nice subtle, not overpowering chocolate kick to a very creamy, smooth pour. At a lower ABV you can take big quaffs without much repercussion ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ton of chocolate on the nose, very dark with not much head, chocolate notes with a subtle coffee with a slight smokey taste and finishes very smooth with even more chocolate. Overall a decent chocolate porter, emphasis on the chocolate.
