Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter

This 5.9% ABV porter is brewed with five different malts including chocolate wheat, along with cocoa nibs. It is from the Boulder Beer Company of Boulder, Colorado.

The beer pours black in appearance, dark blood ruby when held to the light. There is over an inch of thick and creamy head, light brown in color, like coffee with lots of cream. The aroma is full of chocolate, cocoa powder, with dark roasted malt and just a hint of mocha coffee. The taste follows the aromas, there is even more coffee in the flavor than the aroma, but a nice cocoa and milk chocolate predominates. The mouthfeel is light. This is the Nesquik of beer!
