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 is the first chocolate porter I’ve ever had. Nice and smooth. Sweet chocolate taste with a nice bitter finish. Shake is a great name for this beer as it has a creamy shake like taste. This is a beer to enjoy on its own. I can’t really pair it with anything, food wise. Great beer!

Smoother and creamier than most nitros. Sweet up front and bitter in the back. Not robust, reminiscent of a milk stout.

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.
