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.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Chocolate is a fitting title for this beer, in a good way. The aroma has that fermented then roasted brown aroma that’s really enjoyable. Characteristic house yeast and minerals but in. Hmmm. I was really expecting a sweet, dense, rich wheaty beer after that aroma and then notion of "chocolate." The body is incredibly dry, but structured. A slightly metallic twinge and the hint of ash from the roasted malt. I think this could have gone a number of directions and this one speaks of austerity, straightforwardness, and honesty.

Pours very dark brown to black. Smell is chocolate and wheat and cold coffee like with a roasty malt character.taste is smooth roasty malt chocolate and rich. Like a rich cocoa laden stout or porter. Full mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Awesome and tasty.

SpongeRuiner (676) - Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a dark dark brown with a nice dark chocolate colored head. The aroma brings a sugary chocolate note like a chocolatey cereal. The taste brings flavors of smooth chocolate with a roasty malt finish. A fizzed carbonation in the back feel. Spot on with the name. A unique brew. A prominent wheat taste mixed with chocolate. Overall a very creative final product. Shorts knows how to mix it up.

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.
