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.

Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a growler. This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium and foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Chocolate and roasted malt in the nose along with some wheat. Medium, smooth body with flavors of chocolate, grainy malt and toasted wheat. The finish is chocolatey and smooth with a roasted malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Draft at Shorts. Pours dark brown with deep red highlights and a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma had mild chocolate, roasted malt, wheat grass, and very mild sweetness. The flavor is more chocolate than the nose indicated, roasted malt, moderate sweetness, grassy hops, light coffee. The body is a bit thin for a stout, but this is very drinkable. In fact, this would qualify as a session beer if it were readily available.

Growler courtesy of johnd513 poured into a snifter. Pours dark brown with a big tan head that recedes to a cap and leaves some impressive lacing. The nose is fairly subdued but is dominated by the chocolate malts. There are hints of the wheat sweetness and hops but the chocolate malts are dominant in the aroma. The taste is sweet as well with chocolate but has a more toasted character than the aroma suggests. There are hints of coffee bitterness is the taste along with a little hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied for the style with lots of carbonation. This is an extremely drinkable stout and one with a lot of interesting flavors coming together. All in all, another unique brew from Shorts and, in this case, very sessionable.

Not a stout but enjoyable. Roasted and salty. Would go well with some peanuts. Rather thin but makes it very drinkable.

Draft @ Shorts. Pours a very dark, chocolate-brown color; creamy, medium-tan head with solid retention and fine-bubbled lacing; great-looking pour. Good amounts of milk and softly bitter chocolate in the aroma; some roast and coffee; well-roasted with some burnt toast notes. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: strikes a very nice balance between its roasted characteristics and the soft, husky wheat tones underneath; lots of heavily roasted malts, milk and bitter chocolate, and creamy wheat notes throughout; creamy, dense, and generous beer that utilizes its wheat elements quite nicely; very tasty stuff. Medium finish: bitter chocolate, toasty malts, and some lightly husky wheatiness; on the dry side.

tap at shorts.....darker reddish brown pour with a frothy light brown head.... slighty bready aroma with just a hint of chocolate but was expecting a little bit more....chocolate became more apparent in the flavor with more of a roasted malt addition to it. semi-lively carbonation....pretty good.

On tap at Shorts in a sampler glass. Pours dark black with a beige head. Nose of chocolate and some banana. Chocolate, brown sugar, banana, wheat and a touch of spice in the flavors. Bittersweet finish. With the wheat, I was not thinking this was going to be classified as a stout. Tasty though.

draft at hopcats shorts dinner. pour is very deep brown with red hints, and a nice off brown head. flavor is quite chocolatey, with a little bit of coffee in the back. only let down is that it is a little bit thin for my stout tastes.
