Can you handle these crazy, overflowing milkshakes?

 

 

 

 

Chef Joe Isidori's Black Tap: Craft Burgers & Beer is known for its tricked-out burger creations, including a red-sauced pizza version and a chorizo-patty Mexican number. Lately, however, the outrageously decadent, straight-up overflowing milkshakes have been taking Instagram and the blogosphere by storm. 

Created by Isidori himself, the towering treats draw inspiration from classic desserts. The cookie shake combines either vanilla or vanilla cookie ice cream with crumbled cookies, chocolate chips, whipped cream, a chocolate drizzle and a vanilla-frosted rim, and the drinkable cotton candy shake has actual clouds of cotton candy in a vanilla or strawberry base.

While those flavors are permanent fixtures on the menu, Isidori also offers a lineup of rotating confections, like the current seasonal s'mores shake and a Valentine's Day red velvet (pictured below). And yes, it comes with an actual slice of cake on top.

but they don't actually serve them. we went to two different locations and they told us they're "art pieces" and just a publicity stunt to get people in. they had regular milkshakes but were out of almost every flavor. had a strawberry one and it wasn't anything special. i wouldn't go back. so let down. :(
