I had the Shake Chocolate Porter from Boulder Brewing as the last beer of the night at my most recent visit to the Bier Stien in Eugene, OR.

It was in nitro and the beer is served in a Guinness style glass. The beer is dark, dark brown with garnet highlights. It has awesome lacing. It is a very attractive beer.

It as an aroma of chocolate and lightly roasted malts. It is inviting.

The beer leads with milk chocolate and malted milk balls. It has a slightly sour aftertaste which didn’t distract from the beer.

The mouth is silky smooth but thin due to the nitro.

I like this and expect I would like it better on co2 or cask

I couldn't decide if I wanted beer or dessert after pizza, so I chose Shake. From a 22 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Not quite black as ink, but close. There's a hue of reddish brown mixed in, while on top sits a thick, somewhat colored head which retains very well. The aroma smells a lot like dark chocolate and chocolate malt. Unsweetened chocolate. If you like chocolate, something tells me that you are in a treat.

That festival of chocolate that was in the aroma continues onto the taste. There's little doubt here that you can have your beer and your dessert in one consumable. It tasteslike chocolate, but with an edge of earthiness and a dose of grassy, slightly citric hops which remind you that this is beer. Chocolate is a rich food, however here it's a medium bodied beer and surprisingly very easy to drink.

I now have a dark side to attend from Boulder Brewing to compliment Mojo. Well done Boulder!
