COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shallow Grave Porter is dark as night, perfect for a cool evening out in the woods. This a big, dark ale with a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness, leaving you ready for more after each shovelful. You will love this so much you won’t have time to dig a six-footer, so make it a Shallow Grave. We’re sure you’ll dig it.

Tap at dig beer baR. Fat pruney and burnt rubber phenolic nose. Translucent brown color. Rubber bands, chocolate, and wine-soaked raisins. Thin-medium body. This is thin, watery, and way too phenolic. The bar owner at Dig is well-known for taking good care of beer lines and serving beers in good condition. But I suspect that this one is not at its peak.

Tap at Dig. Nose or roasty chocolate, umami, wine ro port, and lots of phenols-berries and rubber. Flavor is super phenoloc, tons of black berry and burnt rubber, with chocolate and lots of umami. Nice silky body. This could be good but the phenolic character makes it almost impossible to drink.

On tap. Clear dark brown pour, with a light tan head. Roasted malt, caramel, mild chocolate sweetness, bread, and notes of coffee. Decent porter, a bit thin.

Chrishrt30 (98) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
Thin creamy tan head and a oil slick black beer. Aromas of sweet caramels and toffee, with rich roasted coffee bean and a little alcoholic fruit cake. Looks like a stout, drinks like a porter, medium mouthfeel, plenty of rich brown sugar, rum soaked stone fruits, milk chocolate, toffee and bitter roasted coffee. The finish is smooth, a little toasty bitterness and a lot of lactic sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (886) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2013
Poured an opaque black with a red tint around the edges. Had a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that retained OK and laced poorly with a few spots even though the head was thick. Low carbonation. Aroma pleasantly of dark chocolate. Taste of sweet dark chocolate and a bit of coffee with some mild bitterness plus a bit of roasted grain on the after taste. Medium body, a bit lighter that I was expecting. Smooth, creamy and rick. Nice!

emartell (240) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 5, 2013
Aromas a malta tostada, café, y ligeramente chocolate. En cuanto a su apariencia, densa, cremosa, completamente obscura, cuerpo medio. En boca a chocolate, café, ligeramente tostada. Al paladar es una cerveza ligera a pesar de sus notas tostadas. Fscil de tomar y que se disfruta plenamente.

This beer has a very unique aroma. It has a slight chocolate aroma but another plant like smell which I can't put my finger on. An ok flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
