12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 1/9/2014. Pours lightly hazy nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big fresh strawberry, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, light coffee, vanilla, cream, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast malt, strawberry, and cream notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, strawberry, vanilla, cream, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, strawberry, vanilla, cream, light floral, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark/roast malt, strawberry, and cream flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy, smooth, and slightly slick/chalky moutfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent milk stout! All around great balance and complexity of dark/roast malt, strawberry, and cream flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

The Neapolitan Stout pours black with a wet sandy brown head that lasts a good while. The aroma is chocolate, vanilla and a hint of strawberry leading me to believe this beer was aptly named. The flavor is vanilla, strawberry and chocolate and it is good. Overall this is a nice stout that I look forward to enjoying again.

Smells like strawberry ice cream, and it tastes like strawberry ice cream. Coming out in words it sounds like it should be weird, and to be completely honest if I read this I would think it was weird, but itís not. Itís great. Nice and sweet and creamy with a strawberry ice cream flavor. The longer it sits in your mouth you can kind of get the chocolate and vanilla. This is a good one!

This is pretty good. You can taste the strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla l at once and none of them really overpower another. They all mix well and itís very good.

On tap. Dark brown hue that sits black in the glass. Tan head. Aroma has notes of sweet sugars, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall a nicely sweet and delicious brew. Nicely done.

Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Nose of sugary candy and light berry. Moderate cocoa and a touch of vanilla. Dark black with a light brown head. Taste is similar with a light mouthfeel. Light fruit and a slightly tart coffee sensation. Interesting.

Bottle. Pours black with minimal head. Aroma of lactose, coffee, chocolate. Taste is sweet, chocolate, not much fruit. Not sure where the last Neapolitan is? Some sweetness maybe? This is ok.

Pours black with a 1 finger off white head. Head leaves lots of thick lacing. Aroma of Neapolitan ice cream. Like smelling all the flavors melted together. Smells very creamy also. Tastes like Neapolitan ice cream that was made with dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. Slightly bitter. Aftertaste is creamy, light strawberry ish. Very good and unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty decent stout. Definitely tastes like it sounds. Would have liked a stronger vanilla presence.
