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.

05/21/14 On tap..No doubt about this sip. Even with out the nitro boost the head on this is so sturdy it leads to a respectable lacing. The aroma does not reveal the wonderfully potent chocolate flavor. This is a classic example of chocolate nibs which are the virtually unprocessed, finely chopped cocoa pods. They push the bitterness that is balanced perfectly. I'm thinking the 'shake' part comes in with a maltiness for the balance. Top notch stuff.

I had this on-tap served in a half yard glass.
Appearance- Dark brown color with two fingers worth of light tan head. Fair amount of lacing.
Smell- Light milk chocolate and roasted malt aromas.
Taste- Strong chocolate flavor with some dark roasted malt notes.
Mouthfeel- Full bodied and very creamy.
Overall- One the better chocolate beers that I've tried, and probably the best porter that I've tried.

On first sip I have to say I was a little dissapointed with this beer. I like a nice rich porter, and Shake does not deliver that experience. I got more of a watery chocolate taste, although it was very smooth, and most notably, far more crisp than your average porter. I do not know if this is due in part to the nitrogen, as I am admittedly new to that genre of dark beer. All said and done, per my own taste, I would not order this beer again.
