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.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Standard 12oz bottle, bad label. Coffee pour, fluffy oatmeal head. Aroma is more parched nuts than roast and chocolate. Lot of bittersweet chocolate right up front - lightly sweet, cocoa-bitter, a bit acidic. Medium body, sometimes almost feels a bit light. Bitter cocoa aftertaste. For all its alleged complexity, it comes off as rather one-note and simplistic. Better than random average, less than expected. ABC, Betton.

draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo NY, chocolate brown pour, full & creamy body. huge chocolate aroma. chocolate dominated beer, not a ton of "beery" characteristics that shine here. real tasty though.

cbfobes (2270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Poured from bottle in mix six pack, pours pretty much black with a thin tan head and spotty lacing, aroma is heavy chocolate and roast, smells pretty awesome, the flavor has a lot of chocolate on the front end with some burnt malt in the finish, maybe a little bit of coffee, dang, good stuff

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2014
This is the most chocolate that I’ve ever tasted in a beer. This porter lives up to its name and has a chocolate shake feel to it. Creamy in texture with chocolate throughout. Finishes sweet. Excellently put together and I really enjoyed this one.

kathouse (917) - Nevada, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Very rich flavors poured from the bottle. Like chocolate cake with a smooth mouthfeel. Some would think this too sweet, but it definitely fits the bill as a dessert beer. Lots of cocoa with no malt graininess. Maybe coffee in the finish, but surely still sweet.

maley1 (727) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
On nitro. Dark brown cascading pour with creamy soft beige head. Aroma is huge chocolate milk, faint coffee, cream and roasted malts. Taste of creamy rich chocolate shake, coffee, caramel and roasted malts. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Delicious beer!

ADesenberg (552) - Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle: pours a very nice, dark brown/black with a tan head. Aromas are very sweet chocolate... Smells like a cup of hot chocolate. Taste is pure joy... You can taste what seems to me like Swiss miss powder... And it's awesome. This is wonderful.

More porter comes through than chocolate, the aftertaste of coffee lingers for quite a while. Very good beer, unfortunately good enough that I have to share with the wife.
