Shake Chocolate Porter brewed by the Boulder Beer Company


Shake Chocolate Porter brewed by the Boulder Beer Company in Boulder, Colorado

Boulder Beer Company has a 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. ABV:5.9%. IBU: 39.
     

 Shake Chocolate Porter

 


Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Pours a two finger tan head, body is opaque,black with ruby highlights. Head retention and lacing were good.

Aroma: Smells pretty sweet, first aromas are of a banana split with tons of chocolate syrup on top. Vanilla is very prevalent and roasted dark malts are also in the mix. Hops aren't really present and neither is alcohol.

Taste: First taste is very similar to a melted chocolate shake or a beer float. Sweet milk chocolate and vanilla bean dominate this beer. Dark chocolate malts and burnt brownie flavors contribute also. Hops are very light and alcohol is almost undetectable.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated for a porter. Head adds a slight creamy texture, finishes nicely

Overall: Overall this beer was great. This porter hit the spot and delivered on what it claimed, which was tons of chocolate. Went through a bomber easily, glad its brewed 40 miles from me, will become a staple in my fridge.

Boulder Beer Company History
The Boulder Beer Company was Colorado's first microbrew and the forty-third licensed brewery in the United States. It was founded on September 25, 1979 by David Hummer, Alvin Nelson, and Randolf Ware. Ware and Hummer were physics professors at the University of Colorado at Boulder and home brewers. When the laws surrounding home brewing were relaxed, the brewery originally started on a farm in a "goatshack".

The Boulder Beer Company was originally known as the Boulder Brewing Company and went public in 1980, raising over $1.7 million. A decade later, in 1990, the company changed its name to Boulder Beer Company when Gina Day took the company private. In 1993 the company again renamed itself as the "Rockies Brewing Company." In 2002, the Rockies Brewing Company entered into a strategic agreement with Rock Bottom Breweries allowing Rock Bottom to brew and sell their Singletrack Ale. In 2005, the company again changed it name back to the Boulder Beer Company.

The Boulder Beer Company is also known for being civic minded. In 2008, it became a sponsoring partner in Boulder's "10 for a Change Challenge," a program designed to reduce energy consumption by 10% via eco-friendly improvements for increased energy efficiency. In addition to being a sponsor for the challenge, the Pub is already PACE Certified (Partners for a Clean Environment) using bio-diesel fuel, recycled/compostable "to go" containers, and recycling. The brewery uses 100% recycled 6-pack carriers and non-petroleum based inks.

Every year, the Boulder Beer Company participates in "Beer 4 Boobs," a nationwide charity program raising money for the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. They also host an annual "Goatshed Revival" Beer Festival in honor of their first brewery that was in a shed shared by goats. Part of the planning of the revival is a homebrew competition wherein homebrewer compete to have the Boulder Beer Company brew and distribute their homebrew. Proceeds from the Goatshed Revival are donated to the Community Food Share, a non-profit organization feeding the community's poor.
