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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Serving type: nitro-tap
