Pours black, with a thick brown head.

Pretty apt name for this beer, really....it delivers what it says.
Creamy, but finishes a bit chalky.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Milk chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla aroma -- big surprise. Black brown with a large tan head, nice lacing. Roasty charred malt, chocolate, strawberry flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Pretty good, but I could have done without the char in the flavor.

Smells like strawberries. Near black. Creamy cappucino colored head. Tastes almost exactly like the ice cream.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty darn good milk stout-- big, complex flavor but very drinkable.
I might have rated it higher but this beer embodies one of my pet peeves-- artificial coloring in a craft beer???
As if that werenít enough-- CARMEL coloring needed for a freaking Milk Stout??
I donít know enough about brewing to guess why this is necessary, but something offends me in a basic way when you have to dye a stout carmel. I mean come on.
All that aside, it really is good. Tip: this one is absolutely excellent for stout cooking duties (especially slow roasting beef).
Good beer. . what I wouldnít do to know its natural color.

Bottle from Suchy3! Pours deep brown with a nice tan head. Big aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry (just as advertised!). Taste is the same, but a little dry and finishes chalky. Would like a bit less lactose and maybe something to smooth things out (oatmeal?) Definitely not bad though!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry in the aroma. Appears black with tan head and residue on the glass. Taste was cola, roasted milk chocolate, marshmallow, and artificial strawberry sweetener. Palate was light side of medium bodied, higher than average carbonation. Overall, this was a fine beer, but Iím not going to buy it again. Thereís a sentence under the "Neapolitan Milk Stout" name on the bottle that I donít understand: "Nostalgic flavors of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla...Ours flavors the Mt. Baldy radar tower, a local landmark installed by the U.S. Air Force in 1957."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark black in color with a small brown head. Aroma is roasty but the strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate all come through a bit. The roast is not as present in the taste which is good. The neapolitan flavors are all there but itís a bit chalky in the finish. Somewhat thick and creamy mouthfeel is nice here. If this wasnít chalky it would be really good. I still enjoyed it though.
