COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Humble comfort in every sip
Chocolate Wheat is a Porter brewed with chocolate malt, wheat malt, and well-chosen specialty grains. The combination creates a deep black, full-bodied beer that provides subtle hop flavors and rich malt tones. Chocolate Wheat balances the flavors of roasted caramel, coffee, and chocolate, which ends in a smooth finish.

Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Has a nice chocolate and malt aroma. Flavor is sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts, and wheat. Has a medium body feel. Everything is balanced brilliantly. Delicious beer.

BelgianBeerGal (3245) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2014
Draft at Zingermanís Roadhouse. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Light milk chocolate aroma. Great chocolate flavor with a full mouthfeel from the wheat. Very tasty.

$2 single poured into a shaker pint (sue me.) Appearance: Pitch black, like youíd figure a stout to be, not necessarily a porter. Two finger tan head looks great on top, but fizzles away quickly. Decent lacing. Pretty good looking beer. Smell: First whiff was great when the head was bubbling away -- almost a chocolate milk aroma. After that went away, itís incredibly light. I pick up a faint metallic note, dark roasted malt, and some chocolate when itís cold, and then just a dark coffee/mocha sort of aroma when it warms up a tick... the metallic note dissipates. Nice. Taste/feel: About spot on. I was worried that this porter would drink like a stout, but it drinks more like its name would indicate. Rather thin and light with a moderate amount of carbonation. Normally Iíd dub this a bad thing, but itís what Iíve grown to expect in a porter. The flavor is solid and interesting, but not overwhelming, which would make this an excellent session option. Plenty of roasted malt, a very pleasant semi-dark chocolate flavor, and sort of coffee and slightly char finish. A very slight bitter finish that makes me just want more, more, more. Well, we have another winner from Shortís. Light, packing some great chocolate flavor, and I love the slight char/ash finish on it. I could see myself picking this up instead of Edmund Fitzgerald, to be honest with you. I just get a more interesting flavor out of this one with the chocolate and essence of coffee with the ash-like finish. More depth of flavor than that brew, in my opinion.

Evolutionary (302) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Sampler pack from meijers Oxford. Nose is sweet malt and pours dark with mild head. Body is really like an oatmeal stout but the sweet cocoa finish changes it a bit. Wheat hints pale in comparison. ---Rated via my mouth

Clownoisseur (267) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours a near-black with a mocha colored head, breaks into a thin cap a lace. Aromas are very warm and roasty. Chocolate pie on the nose. Taste is very rich. Very nice. Cocoa...a bit dry/chalky mouthfeel along with it. The grain bill is fantastic. Cereal, pie crust, graham cracker....more chocolate, but sweeter across the middle...a bit a char...and a mild hop presence to round out the back end. Not too bitter to distract you from the rich body. Very enjoyable beer.

fattybladdy (617) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle, appearance is thick and black. Chocolate, dark malts in the aroma. Taste is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, a bit smokey and pretty sweet. Faint bitterness.

Draft pour. Pitch black color. Thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Palate is thicker, but not heavy. Nice flavor from dark roasting, just a touch of sweetness. Special part of this beer (for an IPA guy like me) is the nice hop finish...not found that often in porters. Is a short term brew so will enjoy it while itís here.
