Shake chocolate porter pours a cloudy, very very dark brown, nearly perfectly black with deep crimson glow to light. Head is decent, a loose foam with spotty bubbles. Foam is tiny, not quite thick enough looking. Smell is surprisingly strong; chocoate covered hazelnuts, Hershey's syrup. Smell nearly identical to Samuel Smith's Chocolate Stout, almost to a worrying degree. Real cocoa aromas, perhaps some vague fruitiness. Taste follows aroma, lots of chocolate and grainy cocoa. Sweetness, a touch of herbaly hop bitterness and a lingering earthy finish, coffe and cocoa powder. Quite good, not what I expected. Equal parts cocoa, complimentary hops and dirty earthy, toasted malts. A very nice beer from Boulder, a brewery who's beer I have not so far enjoyed that much. Very nice beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy bakers chocolate.

The flavor is sweet milk chocolate with some slight acidic cardboard notes and a little roast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall, a decent chocolate beer - definitely all chocolate.

12 oz bottle.Poured into a 20oz firestone glass.Dark brown with a 1 inch head.Very heavy chocolate smell.Not bad.This has got a good flavor .If your looking for a good Porter this is not that bad.Not near as good as the Alaskan Baltic porter but still a very tasty Porter.Give it a try.Motley out.
