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.

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.

This is a unique beer in the way that I cant say it’s splendid or morose; it simply offers its flavors without volition. Easy drinking, simple, smooth, alcoholic chocolate milk.

Smooth, roasty, a bit of malt and a bit of cocoa. A nice, lingering finish with a tidbit of coffee. Not too sweet.

Dark brown with thin tan head. Smells like chocolatemilk plus roasty. Tastes bitter chocolaty- like good hot chocolate. Not too heavy, not overly sweet.

lusikka (7407) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
650 ml bottle. Enjoyed at San Diego, CA. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a small head. Aroma of roastiness, cream and chocolate. Flavour of strong roastiness, dark chocolate, heavy sweet and somewhat artificial tiramisu notes and biscuit. Medium bodied and a bit thin mouthfeel. Too sweet for my taste.
