Our twist on the traditional robust American Porter, Shake Chocolate Porter is dark black in color with rich, sweet aromatics and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and caramel.

Excellent chocolaty porter! Similar to Achocolypse and just as enjoyable. It's like drinking a milk chocolate shake--smooth and easy. Really great as a dessert or just for fun.

Love the taste. It has sutle chocolate flavors with just a hint of coffee. I didn't notice the smell, but my sense of smell is bad. Nice head and finish. I really love this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of milk chocolate. Taste is, well, truth in advertising. It tastes like a chocolate shake, without the excessive sweetness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a beer worth trying.

L: Dark, almost black, opaque with a khaki colored head; with minimal lacing.
S: How do they get so much chocolate aroma in a beer? Dark malts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate...smells like chocolate heaven.
T: Milky chocolate, dark chocolate, toasty goodness. Just enough bitterness to balance out all the sweet chocolate goodness.
F: Rich, not not overly so. Medium bodied, light to medium carbonation.
O: Delicious, very quaffable, and smooth. An excellent porter!
