Notes / Commercial Description:
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. This unique brew blends five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouthfeel.

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!

Medium carbonation. 175 calories per bottle. Fairly bitter and burnt tasting. Chocolate flavor is not very apparent. A bit thin tasting. Decent porter.

Had this on nitro tap.
Pours like a Guinness - dark with a nice foamy head, which is delicious. Great chocolate aroma. Tastes like a creamy chocolate milk, absolutely delicious. At 5.9% abv, I could drink this all night. Surprisingly light and very flavorful. Loads of chocolate throughout. A must have if you find this on nitro.
