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.

NachlamSie (3568) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2014
12 oz best before June 11, 2014. Purchased from Wallaby’s. Pours dark as most porters with a tiny head and spotty lacing on the goblet. The aroma is straight up rich chocolate, but it’s natural and not cloying. Yeah, I mean, smelling this stuff is like smelling a dark chocolate bar. The flavor is extra chocolatey, but again not syrupy or candy-like. It’s fairly sweet with loads of milk chocolate but the finish has a bit of bitterness like cacao nibs. The finish, aside from being pure chocolate, is even a little nutty. For this kind of thing, it’s well done.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 On tap. Pours a pitch black color with a huge nitro white head. A big chocolate nose. Huge sweet chocolate, ashy, toast. Very good.

Pours black and slightly translucent with a tan head with nice lacing and a nice chocolate aroma. Tastes of rich chocolate malt and cocoa nibs with a very mildly bitter hop finish. It's medium bodied with minimal carbonation. There is also some bitter alcohol in the finish to help balance the sweet chocolate.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Had on draft, nitro. Lots of creamy dark chocolate and little (if any) coffee notes. Body was a bit watery but not bad. No alcohol taste to speak of.

Pours dark with a 3 finger head with substantial lacing. As advertised, aroma is of chocolate and slight roast. Taste is all chocolate with an ever-so-slight hop profile on the back of the palate. Finish is smooth chocolate. Nice, easy drinking beer.

Pours dark with a heavy head and strong lacing. Aroma is chocolate through and through. Mouthfeel is chocolate heavy with a slight hint of coffee. Aftertaste is minimal. Could imagine myself drinking a six pack of this on a warm day on the beach.

bottle - Near black pour, smells of chocolate and roast malt. The flavor is sweet milk chocolate with some roast coffee notes giving it a mocha character. There's some milk bitterness on the back end. Smooth and very tasty.

B+. Pours a black color with khaki head. Enormous chocolate aroma and flavor. More of a dark chocolate though

When you want a beer (a MAN’s BEER) to taste like a Hersheys bar, just drop a load (of chocolate) into your unsuspecting BLATZ, and you’ll have what you have, A MAN’S BEER with CHOCOLATE. Or you could drink this fuffy little girls drink. You know what I’m talking about?

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 good beer, rich, not sweet, not bitter. Good value, one to bring to friends house.
