2.86/5  rDev -27%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

$1.89 for a 12oz bottle @ Siciliano's. Brewed with "five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouthfeel."
5.9% ABV, 39 IBU.

Pours out to a clear deep brown, forming a nice sized light tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Carbonation is moderate. No sediment in the bottle. Specs per the website and bottle. The aroma starts off with a blend between that fake "tootsie roll" chocolate extract and light cocoa powder (mostly the former), sitting on top of roast grains with a suggestion of black walnut. Cleanly fermented. Mouthfeel is initially prickly cola, then gives way to a strong mineral component (iron and chalk) and finishes a bit soapy in the mouthfeel. No hop nose to speak of. Medium bodied. The taste recaps the aroma. The iron and chalk is pretty strong and somewhat overwhelms the flavors going on here. As a matter of fact, I think this has the strongest iron taste I've ever had in a beer. The kind of water that makes your toilet turn orange in 2 days. Bitterness is mild and overall is slightly sweet. Fair amount of roast with associated acidity. Burnt marshmallows in the finish. More iron and chalk in the aftertaste.

Not really my cup of tea. The minerals are way overboard and combined with the chocolate extract tootsie roll twang, just doesn't sit well with me.

A: Dark Black. Two fingers of light tan head which slowly reduced to one over several minutes.

S: Roasty malt smell. Some cocoa smell.

M: A little too "tingly"

T: No chocolate tase at all. Tastes like a lighter stout with roasty malt flavors but not the coffee/chocolate that I was expecting

O: This is just an okay brew. I would pass over this in favor of trying some

3.21/5  rDev -18.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours pitch black and completely opaque with dark mahogany edges and a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Smokey aroma with a nice balance of robust roast and sweeter, dessert-like dark malt character. Very roasty at first with hints of burnt malt, espresso bean, charcoal, liquid smoke, dark chocolate and oatmeal. This is countered by sweeter dark malt notes and a prominent silky chocolate presence. Hints of baker's chocolate, toffee, caramel and flour less chocolate cake. A little heavy on the roast but not acrid at all with a decent amount of sweetness for balance.

On the lighter end of medium body with very strong roasted dark malt flavor that overpowers the sweeter chocolate malt flavors. Not as well balanced as the nose suggests with a much stronger, slightly acrid burnt malt presence that lingers over the sweeter notes into a very dry finish. Smokey with hints of ash, burnt toast and charred wood along with bittersweet dark chocolate, oatmeal and spent coffee grinds. There's some lighter malt sweetness toward the end of the palate with hints of milk chocolate, hazelnut and caramel but everything us overwhelmed by the heavy roast. The light mouthfeel and subtle sweetness help drinkability but thus beer is too one dimensional and overly roasted for my preference.

Served from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a dark brown almost black, a little transparent, edges fade a little to a dark tan. Head is light and fluffy, but dissipates quickly.

Smell is awesome. Chocolate nibs, hot cocoa, maybe a little vanilla, but just SO much chocolate.

Taste was a bit of a let down. Misses that huge chocolate nose by a large margin. A bit bitter, and a thin mouthfeel. Overall taste was disappointing after such a large nose.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy bakers chocolate.

The flavor is sweet milk chocolate with some slight acidic cardboard notes and a little roast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall, a decent chocolate beer - definitely all chocolate.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

It definitely is aptly named. It is reminiscent of a chocolate shake. I almost wish it were even more so, with a creamier and maltier (not beer malts) flavor.

It pours a thin looking deep brown with loads of lacing and moderately weak head. The aroma is sweet chocolate - kind of like a Yoo-Hoo, but not as milky (like a Yoo Hoo is milky).

The taste is like a thin Yoo-Hoo - sweet but not syrupy, thin and not nearly robust enough. The aftertaste is clean but it reminds you of the disappointing chocolate drink you just drank, hoping you were going to drink a porter.

This is not a good example of an American Porter. It should be much more robust than it is. It just does not work for me.

Pours deep brown with a mocha head. They nailed the name for this beer as it totally smells like a chocolate shake. Don't need to explain the aroma at all here....think of a nice, creamy chocolate milkshake and that is what you get. Flavor is super chocolately but not as tightly wound as the aroma. Milk chocolates, dark chocolates, a touch of roastiness, and a little creamy shake in the finish. Good flavor, but I enjoyed the aroma a touch more. A medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, pretty a nice beer from Boulder here. Didn't know they had it in them.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a deep dark brown with a decent sized mocha head that leaves a bit of spotty lace. Aromas of milk chocolate with hints of caramel and a light non descript fruit. The chocolate overpowers most of the aroma and has a hint of artificial to it. The flavor is heavy with milk chocolate and caramel with bits of earthiness just to shake it up. Hershey's chocolate syrup is mostly what I taste. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sweet silky almost chalky mouthfeel. Sweet sticky chocolate beer. I like it, its pretty simple, but I like chocolate and it kind of worked for me.

Pours a dark brown with some amber hues at the edges. Generous 2 fingers of head form upon pour with plenty of lacing left behind. Nose is straight liquid candy bar. Tons of milk chocolate and a bit of roast. Taste is a bit of a let down camp pared to the nose. The chocolate is very dry and adds a considerable amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and highly carbonated. Overall, this beer smells great but the taste just doesn't live up to it.

Tastes like a chocolate milkshake. If that's what you're looking for, then look no further! If you're not into sweet beers, then steer clear. The beer doesn't have much bitterness, which I prefer in a beer - so this is more of an alternative than a standard.

Pours a mocha colored fluffy thick 1/2 finger head that fades semi slowly with lots of lacing everywhere, pitch black beer.

Nose is just all chocolate, mostly American chocolate bar, milk choc like, and a ton of fudge as well, thick chewy fudge and chocolate, a little creamy and fudgesicle like, hint of dark malts and touch bitter, not much else.

Taste starts with more chocolate and continues with the fudge, lots of creamy milk chocolate and fudgesicle, chewy fudge and quite rich, a bit of a fake chocolate taste as well, but pretty much all chocolate flavored. Mild bitterness and roast like dark malt as well, but not much of either. Also, chocolate ice cream. That's, that's all Ihave to say about that. Finish is a bit more bitterness, little earthy grassy hop surprisingly, but again just mostly lingering chocolate and fudge.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, little creamy, thick and a bit chewy too, fudgey, decent carb.

Overall, um, well it's not too bad, not the type of chocolate I like in a beer, this almost tasted like a gimic or fake beer with so much chocolate and fudgesicle there is nothing left to make this beer like.

Appearance is a dark brown with ruby edges and a finger of tan head that enjoyed retention of some length. The nose had chocolate notes and there is chocolate flavor upfront. The roast profile is rather timid to say the least, but at least it finishes with a decent roasted bitterness.

This offering delivers on the chocolate, but it leaves a bit to be desired as a porter.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Shake is a dark brown color, permitting just a little light through at the thinnest parts of the body. It possesses a firm tan head with lots of creaminess and leaves good lacing behind in fairly plentiful patching.
The smell gives up a nice base of chocolate syrup with an essence that's thick and sweet with just a hint of raw bitterness of pure cocoa. It's supported by roast and char in a pretty strong malts foundation. There's a note of kola running through as well.
The taste brings more of the thick chocolate syrup, kola (nut and sort of spiciness), toast and roast with some gently charred woods on the end along with roasted/almost burnt nut. It has a slight tang to it that distracts a little, and a hint of raw green pepper (just a ghost) here and there.
The medium body is perhaps slightly too crisp but evenly smooth with a dry finish.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a deep cola brown, near black in depth, with a 2 finger tan head. Fair retention gives way to a broken layer of suds across the surface. Fine lacing around the glass with good stick.

Smell - Malted chocolate at the forefront. Well, that's basically it. Malted chocolate. Nothing complex, just straight forward malted chocolate.

Taste - Follows the nose. Chocolate milk shake quality, but more along the line of one of them "fake shakes", like the ones they used to serve at Carl's Jr. Maybe faint traces of vanilla? Yeah, think low-tier quality fast food chocolate shake and you have this beer in the bag.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied and thick, but with velvety finesse. Goes down stupid easy.

Overall - Looking for an alternative to a Mudslide in beer form, or a chocolate shake with booze? This is it. Not a whole lot of complex chocolate flavors, just straight malted chocolate. Truly, a one note wonder. Good. Not great. You'd really have to be in the mood for a chocolate shake to love this beer in the moment.

12oz bottle $1.79. Dark black-brown, good head. Smells like chocolate, tootsie rolls. The flavor was strong chocolate tootsie rolls and Count Chocula cereal. The chocolate is very heavy on this and one bottle was enough for me but this was a pretty solid beer.

Bottle into pint glass.

A: Dark body with very small head that dwindles away to nearly nothing. Not much lace. Good clarity and lovely color, though.

S: Very nice cocoa and toasty malts. Every so slight piny hop buried beneath all the chocolate and malts.

T: Chocolate nibs, toasty malts, and chocolate wheat malts that lend a sweetness to the bitter chocolates. Nice combination here! Nice dry dark chocolate finish.

M: Seems a bit light bodied. I would like a bit more thickness.

O: Many of the beers I have tried with added chocolate have been lopsided with nothing balancing out the chocolate. The brewers here did a good job balancing a bier so chocolaty that I could add some ice cream and make a float! Yummy.

"Our twist on the traditional robust American Porter, Shake Chocolate Porter is black in color with rich, dark chocolate aromatics and flavors and subtle coffee-like notes. 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." Shake is brewed in the style of an American Porter, and released as a new year-round beer in late 2013. Available in 6 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 58º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) The beer pours a creamy frothed light mocha brown head over a deep brown body. Retention is good, lacing is light and spotty. 4

(Smell) Aroma consists of moderately roasted caramel with a strong hazelnut bitterness and lactose sweetness. Light cocoa nibs provide a subtle earthy note to pair. Potency is medium/high. 3.5

(Taste) Light roasted malt with some earthy bitterness, finishes with a heavy roasted malt note with a dash of chocolate. The balance is primarily in favor of bitter, earthy notes over sweetness. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is smooth, slick, oily. Carbonation adds some froth and creaminess. Body is medium for the style, medium+ overall. Alcohol presence is low. 3.5

(Overall) While Shake manages to bring a moderate chocolate flavor that many American Porter fans crave, there is a great deal of earthy bitterness and roast that rounds this beer out well to keep it from being a sugar bomb. A fairly enjoyable porter. 3.75

In a shaker pint.

Dark brown body with no highlights and an ecru cap that billows to two-finger's width. Nice lacing left behind as the head collapses.

Chocolate everywhere: chocolate syrup, Tootsie Roll, toffee, and a pinch of light roast coffee. The roast is really down played, so very sweet.

There is the roast and coffee flavors! The palate backs off on the luscious, dessert nose to hit you with a blast of roasted malt and a bit of coffee grounds. The sweet chocolate flavors flash on the palate FAR too quickly. The chocolate flavors are more at the back end of the drink and come across as cocoa powder and baker's dark chocolate, also a little nutty. I am also surprised by the slight booze character that hits on the back end, with a little bit of general bitterness from the roasted malt.

The body is okay. Yes, Shake has some decent creaminess, but it is too light, so close to calling it flat really. And with that roasted, slightly boozy finish, the feel just does not work well.

It really stinks when a beer starts out so promising and then loses steam when you actually start drinking it. The dry, roasted quality on the palate would be fine if more of those sweet flavors came through as well. Especially since Boulder Beer toys with your emotions and gives you such a scrumptious bouquet of sweet chocolate.

Split with gf, poured into a pint glass. Paired with chocolate cake.

A&S: lots of chocolate milk, a little bit of caramel, but outside of that I'm not getting a whole lot. Jet black beer, good amount of lacing specks. Light tan head that starts at about a finger and retains in a very thin layer.

T&M: Similar to the aroma upfront: milk chocolate. More bitter then I would expect from the aroma. Kinda sharp mouthfeel for a porter.

Overall: I hear this beer was good, I'm setting more on the above average spectrum. Better then most of the stuff out of bolder brewing company, but nothing special.

It's the session of "shake". Every song that has the word comes to mind. She shook me all night long to shake, shake, shake that bootie... I'll just chalk all that up to a character flaw on my behalf.

Boulder shake kicks off with the standard Porter appearance for the most part. Its deep brown body is medium-brown hue. Piercing garnet highlights shine through its filtered clarity. Its creamy froth swirls into a lather that retains resonably well after reducing to a delicate lace on the surface and glass.

Strong chocolate aromas become the star of the show. But peeling back the layers, other, more sound beer aromas arise- toffee, toast, pecans, coffee and cola also come out to play as the beer warms. With little hop influence, fruit or spice, the aroma promises a malty-sweet session.

Its pure chocolate character is both lush and robust with both a bittersweet and milk chocolate dovetail in taste. Unatural to the Porter-world, the chocolate overtones completely overwhelm the beer- but in the best way possible. Its toasty and lightly grainy backbone introduces toasted nut flavors, coffee grounds and a cola-like finish that's modestly distracting. Its mild alcohol flavor is somewhat spicy but without going all peppercorn on the palate.

Medium through and through, the Porter has a creamy, semi-sweet feel on the mouth but lightens considerably through the middle for a surprisingly high rate of drinkability. Warm in its finish, its alcohol spiciness is the only real reprieve from such sweetness; even as its woodish hop bitterness does so mildly in taste. Perhaps a bit watery as it trails, its aftertaste reveals that cola-like tact.

Shake is a delightful Porter that really pushes the chocolate flavors to an absurd level. Much like Samuel Smith's Chocolate Stout and Southern Tier's Choklat, this dark ale is the latest in that chain of chocolate beers. Its relatively lighter body is somewhat its savior and its curse.

Shake chocolate porter pours a cloudy, very very dark brown, nearly perfectly black with deep crimson glow to light. Head is decent, a loose foam with spotty bubbles. Foam is tiny, not quite thick enough looking. Smell is surprisingly strong; chocoate covered hazelnuts, Hershey's syrup. Smell nearly identical to Samuel Smith's Chocolate Stout, almost to a worrying degree. Real cocoa aromas, perhaps some vague fruitiness. Taste follows aroma, lots of chocolate and grainy cocoa. Sweetness, a touch of herbaly hop bitterness and a lingering earthy finish, coffe and cocoa powder. Quite good, not what I expected. Equal parts cocoa, complimentary hops and dirty earthy, toasted malts. A very nice beer from Boulder, a brewery who's beer I have not so far enjoyed that much. Very nice beer.

This poured a nice, rich, black with an big one finger mocha colored head that lasted quite long. Decent lacing too.

Smell was milk chocolatey, vanilla, and very pleasant.

Taste of chalky chocolate, and mouthfeel was full on. I think tootsie roll comes to mind, but in a glass, and in a very positive way. Incredibly satisfying.

This is a beer I would definitely have again. Might be more a last beer of the night, but an excellent one to end with after a long day. Very drinkable. Probably could have had two.

This beer has been on my order sheet for a while; Coors finally distributed it today.

Dark brown pour with a giant off-tan head, a bit soapy. Settles to about 1/4 inch with splotchy lacing. Looks good.

Aroma is a tad weak. Chocolate syrup dominates, just short of strong. Slight latte and vanilla in the back gives an odd combination with the cocoa. Sweet

Flavor has a lot going for it. This is a chocolate beer alright and that particular flavor dominates. Again, just shy of strong, but it drowns the vanilla until the end. Something about vanilla that gives me a hollow flavor. Can't quite put my finger on it.

Flavor is at the mercy of the body, which is a touch thin. Boost this up a bit and the flavors, especially the chocolate, would shine.

Good dessert beer

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/11/2014. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger light tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, toffee, caramel, fudge, toast, light roast, light vanilla, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and cocoa nib notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toffee, toast, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, caramel, toffee, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and cocoa nib flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good chocolate porter. Good robustness and balance of malt and cocoa nib flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Man, chocolate is right. Massive chocolate and quite a lot of coffee flavors in this beer. The malts melding with it all give off a caramel chocolate vibe... almost like a caramel mocha latte or something along those lines. Pretty nice sweet/bitter balance. The aroma is the stand out with this beer though, as it really smells like, like I said, a caramel mocha latte -- almost exactly. Would make a great candle. There's a good flavor here, but I wouldn't want more than a couple just because the caramel chocolate flavor I pull out of it would get old fairly quickly. Regardless of that, still an outstanding brew.
