I couldn't decide if I wanted beer or dessert after pizza, so I chose Shake. From a 22 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Not quite black as ink, but close. There's a hue of reddish brown mixed in, while on top sits a thick, somewhat colored head which retains very well. The aroma smells a lot like dark chocolate and chocolate malt. Unsweetened chocolate. If you like chocolate, something tells me that you are in a treat.

That festival of chocolate that was in the aroma continues onto the taste. There's little doubt here that you can have your beer and your dessert in one consumable. It tasteslike chocolate, but with an edge of earthiness and a dose of grassy, slightly citric hops which remind you that this is beer. Chocolate is a rich food, however here it's a medium bodied beer and surprisingly very easy to drink.

I now have a dark side to attend from Boulder Brewing to compliment Mojo. Well done Boulder!

From notes on 3/6/14

On tap at Brews Brothers. Smells just like a chocolate malt. We are drinking the nitro version. Doesn't look like your typical nitro beer. Taste is all sweet. Some beer flavor. Mostly chocolate shake/malt. This would have been awesome to drink when I was like 13. Still, a great after dinner beer.
