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.

12 ounce thanks to mikem409. Chocolate for sure. But with that wheat profile that keeps it from being a big time chocolate stout. Reminds me a bit of the Bells wheat beers from six or seven years ago.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mikem409. Pours black with a thin-moderate brown head that lasted through the first two sips and leaves a complex network of lace. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and some char. The flavor is roasted malt with some ash and a bit of tobacco. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Pours black with a medium mocha head. Aroma is lightly roasted...milky...just a bit of chocolate...earthy and wheaty. Flavor has some roastiness...a bit of black licorice...can’t find a hint of chocolate....and some sort of nasty flavor I can only describe as fishy!? Creamy medium mouthfeel and a fishy aftertaste. Horrible...pouring out...disappointing.

You can really taste the malt in this one. Unfortunately the chocolate is more chalky than it is chocolate.

Bottle, had a dark brown (opaque) pour and made a dark tan colored (with some milk shake colored bubbles) two to three finger head, beer left spots and small fingers of lacing on the glass as I drank, I found a thin film of sediment with a half circle of thicker dark brown sediment on the bottom of the bottle, the aromas were milk chocolate, roasted malt, some malt sweetness and some coffee with a little caramel (I did not get any wheat notes in this beer), the flavors were dry chocolate, roasted malt, faint coffee (I think there was more coffee on the nose), some caramel and some molasses sweetness, the finish had a little bitterness from roasted malt?, the mouth feel was less than medium, this was nice, an easy to drink beer (I could gulp this down if I wanted to), I did not sense any wheat in this beer, maybe the wheat gave this beer the light mouth feel I noticed on the palate? a beer with a nice blend of flavors.

Completely black with medium head. Chocolate flavor was excellent, and wheat added a bit of tang. Very fresh sample!

Wow was I suprised when a friend brought back a growler of this from the brewpub. I thought "you went all the way to Short’s and a chocolate wheat beer is what you bring back?" Oh man, was I wrong...this was well worth the trip! Ground breaking wheat beer perfectly married to chocolate. I was blown away.
