I've had many a chocolate porter / stout. But I found this Shake Chocolate Porter especially tasty. Sometimes as these chocolate beers start to warm up, they just get gross tasting. This one kept it's tasty flavor through out the entire hour it took me to sip it down.

Upon my first sip, I definitely got some very nice chocolate, nutty, and coffee notes. The mouthfeel was especially pleasant. But what surprised me the most, was that on the back end, you got a bit of sharp hops. It was unexpected but very enjoyable.

Appearance was dark brown, almost black, with a thin tan head. The smell was full of milk chocolate and toasted malt. The taste was similar but with a crisper finish than I imagined. Very sweet beginning and middle with a mellow finish with chocolate and coffee through out. Very tasty. Mouthfeel was also nice with the consistency of a shake.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin light brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a rich and strong milk chocolate flavor as the name implies. Then a hearty roasted malt character comes in. There are some background flavors of coffee and smoke. The hops presence is very mild but brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a decent chocolate beer to drink for a while.
