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

Pours opaque very dark brown. The 1/2 inch khaki head settles to a film and ring on top and leaves curtains of lace.

The smell is of milk chocolate, vanilla and faint coffee with a faint metallic finish.

The taste is of milk chocolate, vanilla and a hint of honey.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.

Judging by the name, I assume that chocolate shake flavor and mouthfeel is the goal here. The nitro tap version almost accomplishes this task. The bottled version feels watered down and falls short of the goal.
