Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Attractive to look at. The pour produces a two-finger thick head with frothy, chewy cream-colored head. The head persists well and leaves sticky lace on the sides of the glass the same height as the original head. A thin lace remains atop the liquid long after the pour. The liquid is dark black with some transparency and hues of brown. I don't see much carbonation working through the beer.
Certainly very chocolatey and almost Gnutell-like on the nose. There's sweet malt, vanilla and even tiny hints of coffee. It smells very dessert-like. Interestingly, the beer isn't nearly as sweet as the nose led me to believe. I do still get chocolate, but the beer has a very nutty flavor,similar to a nut brown. I continue to get hints of vanilla and a dark chocolate aftertaste, both of which I enjoy. Perhaps the one limitation of this beer is the thin body, which certainly doesn't resemble a shake and works against the otherwise tasty flavors. The beer is smooth, but lacks the creaminess I'd like.
I like this beer, but would enjoy it much more if the body were thicker.

Medium to dark brown in appearance that poured a light but frothy two finger head.
Smells like chocolate syrup...not yet to thrilled.
Wow, they nailed the name right on the head with this one, tastes exactly like a chocolate shake, but not that great.
Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, not great either.
Overall this is definitely a dessert beer, wouldn't touch it for anything else.
