COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our twist on the traditional american porter, Shake chocolate porter is black in color with rich, dark chocolate aromatics and flavors and subtle coffee-like notes. This unique brew blends five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouth feel.

Dark brown with thin lacy head. Aroma is full of creamy chocolate. Flavour is similar. Texture is a bit thin and its a bit too gassy. Otherwise a nice sweet chocolate beer.

Variety is the spice of life or so I hear. Porters just do not really do it for me. So here we go with one called Shake. Obtained through a beer of the month club which sounded like a good deal at the time. I pour it into a tall glass stein and let it settle. It is definitely a pretty dark brown in appearance with a slender top of finely bubbled tan foam. Lifting it to me nose I get cocoa, grain and bread. The taste is initially definitely milk chocolate, wheat and rice and a hint of sweetness. There is a coffee overtone too. It finishes with a slight bitterness. Worth a try. Likely not on my menu going forward though.

Draft at Yard House, Red Rock Resort, Las Vegas. Pours jet black with a beige head. Very chocolatey aroma. Tastes like very sweet chocolate syrup. This would make a great ice cream topping, but as a beer, its not that great. Too sweet. Did not finish.

Bottle at WOB. Dark pour no head. Cacao porter smell, malt and roasted hops. Smooth and creamy with vanilla and it isnt all that dark but the malt creates some earthy undertones. Nice sipper. Not a risk-taker.
