Nitro. Darkest brown with a lasting tan head, bc damn dude it’s nitro and shiznit. Big, big, BIIIIIIGGGGG chocolate aroma. Don’t f**k. This is what it is. Sweet chocolate milkshake flavor, sure to bring all the boys to the yard (hopefully something you want, for me I was like dudes come on I’m not Jared Fogle or something I don’t know how all these boys got in my yard, SCREW YOU KELIS!!!). Nibby. Very nibby. You drink this and you all like damn dogg they done threw ALLLLLL the cacao nibs up in this bitch! Smooth and silky, silkk the shocker, but you know that’s mostly the nitro. A legit beer experience that I recommend for all beer geeks once in a lifetime at least.

This pours a dark brown/black color with a slight head. The aroma is sweet with roasted malts and cocoa. The taste is big, bold, and robust. The flavor is smooth and full of roasted flavors that leave a lingering sweet and chalky after taste. Pretty good stuff and worth trying!

Robe brune aux reflets cuivrés. Arômes chocolat et cacao en poudre. Arômes de fruits noirs en plus en bouche. Final cacao. Une bonne bière mais peu complexe.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Enjoyed the nitro edition at the Yard House in Vegas watching my team play in the Grey Cup. Pours a dark brown colour with a nitro creamy beige head, good retention and thick creamy lacing. Nice chocolate nose remind me of the Young’s Double Chocolate stout. Eventually, light grass shows up. The taste starts off with chocolate but the hops really kick in quickly. Roasted malt lingers. Medium-heavy bodied. Quite a nice twist on the Young’s, adding the American touch of more hops. My team lost.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
January 2nd, 2014 - Excepting the luxurious and decadent dip into the beer cellar for New Year’s Eve, this is the first beer review of the year, starting off with a deep, chocolatey and time honored beer. The Shake, I think, is a staple of Boulder Beer’s repertoire, Dark like chocolate, and smells like chocolate, and tastes like chocolate. Well, not quite. It’s all like chocolate malt, which is far better than straight up chocolate. More of a malt than a shake, and to my senses, everything Young’s Double Chocolate Stout should have been.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2015 Bottle in LA. Slightly sweet porter base, chocolate with very little roastiness. Lactose? A hint of nut essence or something? Pleasant easy drinking sweet porter. Upping my rating on second bottle. Great chocolate beer at sessionable ABV.

A very good chocolate porter, like a chocolate milk shake. Pours a deep black with a brown head. Smells of chocolate, vanilla, s'mores. Taste is super creamy, with lots of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and cream. Had in the bottle.

Delicious chocolate aroma on this one, even if it is coming mainly from the additives rather than the malt. Deep, deep semi-sweet chocolate flavors with just enough bitterness to balance it out nicely. Ends with a great, soft & almost slightly sour milk chocolate aftertaste. Very nice.
