12oz bottle. Black with a thick one finger beige head. The strawberry is the biggest aroma. The taste is strawberry with some chocolate notes coming through. Different and good.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

So sweet and too much going on for me. Pours a dark black brown with a creamy beige head and tons of sticky lacing. The nose is sweet and dessert esque with chocolate, lactose and fruuty notes. Too sweet in the middle with a light robust roasted malt. Not overly stout like but too watery and sweet for my liking.

Pours a dark brown with a light fan foam head. Has a nice aroma of roast, chocolate, and some berry. Flavor is similar, with roast and chocolate more up front. Very good.

The name alone drew me in but it was the description at Town Hall that sealed the deal. An experimental beer that I’d expect from another Michigan brewery instead, this release provides an alcoholic experience akin to a milkshake. Find it on draft or in a bottle (at about $9.99 a four pack) and make your own determination.

Aroma / Appearance - A creamy black base fills the glass with a smooth presence. A tan head remains as protection from the air. Strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla rise from the air with the feel of melted Neapolitan ice cream and alcohol. Creamy and smooth, the profile alone makes this worth purchasing.

Flavor / Palate - A creamy mouthfeel fills the mouth with a smooth texture. From start to finish it unleashes waves of dairy. Strawberry and milk slightly outweigh the grocery store aisle chocolate. A nice balanced beer was so good I wound up picking up a half growler a month later.

0,33l on tap @ Oliver Twist. Pours very dark brown with a low head. Aroma is milk, chocolate, strawberries and roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts, some strawberries, chocolate, lactose and hops. Great!

Draught at Oliver Twist. Very sweet fruity aroma like strawberry milkshake. Smooth taste of chcoloate, not as fruity as the aroma indicates.

presario (4708) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
Wow, pretty good for a hard to pull off concept. Dark brown with a dark head. Aroma of dusty chocolate and maraschino cherries. Flavour starts chocolate, strawberry around the edges, vanilla through the middle and interesting strawberry aftertaste.
