Boulder Beer Shake Dark Chocolate Porter
What the brewers say
"Using a blend of five different grains, this indulgent porter creates layers of velvety flavors blending notes of cream, cacao nibs, coffee and caramel."
What our panel thought
“Loads of milk-chocolate syrup, marshmallow, and caramel in the aroma. Also banana, anise, and peanut butter. The dessert-like notes carry through into the flavor with a decided sweet chocolate note up front that slowly fades into roasted malt. Sweet pastry-like finish leaves the palate quickly for another sip.”
What our editors thought
“Huge chocolate aroma with an almost chocolate soda–extract character. The sip pushes more of that chocolate-ish character, but it’s hard to get over the artificiality.”
