I enjoyed this bottle chilled in a stout glass.

The color is very dark brown with opaque clarity and thick 2 plus fingers of creamy light beige head with very fine bead. The smell is rich with chocolate aroma -fudge like and chocolate shake is a good descriptor since it has practically all chocolate in the aroma. The feel is wonderful -smooth and creamy yet full of body with light roast and semidry finish with nutty feel yet moderately low carbonation.

The taste is great -nutty cocoa focus without an overly sweet flavor yet enough sweetness to make it enjoyable with low bitterness and vanilla like flavor backs the smooth chocolate dominating with slight nutty taste and light coffee-like bitter dark malt in back with low alcohol in the taste as it finishes semi-dry. Overall a lovely chocolate ale -good porter with nice balance creamy smooth and so good, such a drinkable beer -not a dessert beer one I would love to return to

Before I get into the beer I have to say Props to the Boulder brewing co that makes this beer. Really cool website and all the names and labels on all their beers are really creative and cool! Now for the review on this beer. On the pour not to much of a head a finger maybe 2 that fades fast. On the nose nutty chocolate of course. Tastes of a watery milk shake. Mouth feel very watery. With a name like shake I was thinking this beer would be heavier and thicker. I like it but maybe a tad over rated. C+ maybe B- beer at best. IMO of course ;)
