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.

PanMarek (266) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Dark brown pour with thick, quick beige foam. Malty nose with lots of chocolate and toasted notes. Light / medium body with slightly slick texture. The taste is strongly milk chocolate but not cloyingly sweet or overpowering. Very tasty with dessert.

This beer has a solid sweet milk chocolate aroma and flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety. While i do not get actual lactose in the flavor profile, there is something milk shake like about this brew. Nice desert beer.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a deep black color with a finger of sticky foam that coats the glass. Aroma is purely sweet milk chocolate, smells like a milkshake. The first sip is a huge rush of sweet milk chocolate flavor with a thick malt backbone. But this beer tastes all cocoa, all the time. A slight tinniness on the aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation.
