UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 At the Brewery tap house pub. Everyone at the table older than 11 months old I was with didnít think this worked at except for me who quite enjoyed it. Like drinking a bowl of Neapolitan ice cream. Serving: Tap

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visual: Pours very dark brown with no real head, thin ringed retention, steady streams all around.
Nose: artificial strawberry ice cream, vanilla, subtle malts. Candyesque, but appetizing. (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: soft crisp, light slick
Mid-palate: aromatic artificial strawberry, long (lvl-7-sweetness)-slight cloying, roasted barley malt
Finish: dark cocoa notes, vanilla extract, lingering plastic artificiality
Summary: Definitely a unique flavour that grabs your attention with the first sip, much like their blueberry maple stout. It does however become very predictable and cloying halfway through. Not a ton of depth but the transitions are decent. I can confidently say I wonít be having another one of these. Too much artificiality.

Part of a flight--almost black color with a small, beige head. The aroma was dominated by cherry and vanilla with some roast. It was only then I realized, oh yea, that kind of neapolitan! The flavor was sweet with lots of chocolate. Medium to heavy body with a creamy finish. It wasnít what I was expected, but delicious. Iron Oak Post.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose light chocolate, pour cola brown with a tan head. Taste is sweet and did remind of ice cream at first sip, before the cloying sweetness and seemingly artificial strawberry took me out of the illusion. Smooth and creamy fullish body beset by sugar, the kind that accumulates around the molars, with subtle low bitterness and touches of real chocolate and roast floating about. Touch milky, but no real vanilla, with a good amount of crispness to remind me this is a beer. A committed and ultimately successful dessert beer to enjoy by itself. [2016.08.19: 3.4]

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of LinusB. Pours blackish reddish brown with a small beige head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and fruity with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, strawberries, milk and soil. Taste is sweet, malty and fruity. Mouthfeel is round, tiny cloying and medium bodied. Finish is sweet with roasted malts, chocolate, synthetic strawberries, milk duds and minerals. Not a fan of the hugely synthetic strawberry character.
