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.

Chrishrt30 (101) - 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 (969) - 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 (257) - 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

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Milk chocolate, caramel, and roasted malts. A solid dark brown pour with a khaki ring and no lacing. Flavors of chocolate, biscuit, coco cola and citrus notes comprise the taste. The finish, while pleasing bitter is slightly watery. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, dispite the waterish (Yes it’s a word! Look it up.) finish, this is a very drinkable and enjoyable Porter that I would drink it again.

Mild malty aroma; inky black appearance with a tan head; toasty malt and chocolate flavor; fizzy on the palate with a silky underlay and a quick clean finish; overall, a very good porter with only a lack of complexity or pop preventing it from being top of the class ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good porter, a bit thin on the mouthfeel, chocolate and vanilla aromatics. The vanilla aroma was really accentuated and made this a great beer.
