3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 7/1/13 from a capped 12oz bottle sent to me in the Easter Bunny BIF. Pours completely opaque dark brown, nearly black, with an average tan head that leaves average lace, along with tons of clinging to the glass. The nose is sweet with strawberry syrup, plenty of milk chocolate, and a nice vanilla aroma. The flavor is the same as the nose, but all of the flavors are on the dry side, with a nice dose of bitter dark chocolate. The body is full and creamy with average, but very smooth carbonation, and a long dry strawberry and bitter dark chocolate finish. This is very pleasant.

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.
