Bottle

A: Deep brown, nearly black appearance with only the edges showing the color of the snifter glass. Clarity looks good from what I can tell when held to a light. Foam is khaki colored with tight small bubbles that lace the side of the glass as it falls - good retention.

S: Moderate milk chocolate with sweet cocoa powder and cream. Light roast and coffee like malt in the background. No hop aroma. Slight nutty character comes through also.

T: Mild bitterness with low earthy hop flavor. Milk chocolate with cocoa and an underlying nutty malt character give way to a dark chocolate finish - very similar to the aroma. Balance is on the chocolate with the sweetness being moderate. The finish is slightly creamy / dairy like.

M: Soft creamy mouthfeel almost nitro like. Low to mild carbonation with medium / moderate body. A touch of alcohol warming. Very smooth.

O: Just like it says - its a Chocolate Shake, very nice. sweet milk chocolate with a creaminess that makes it very much a dessert beer. I couldn't do more then one but its perfect for after dinner.
