Very dark brown with foamy head. Aroma is dominated by strawberry syrup. Flavour is similarly strong but there's also some elements of dark roasted bitter malts. Overall a bit too much strawberry. Desverger (12915) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Sehr fruchtiger Geruch. Zu Beginn erstmal trocken und dunkel malzig, die Erdbeer Noten sind natürlich aber relativ mild. Spritzig, rund. 10/10/9/9//10 RW80 (2740) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle @ home. Appearance: A dark red glare coming through a dark brown body, with a light brown medium sized head. Aroma: vanilla, strawberries, milk chocolate.
A bit artificial. Taste: Sweetish vanilla and (artificial) strawberries, hallway the milkchocolate kicks in and finishing with strawberries,light sour, quite sweet and some malts.
Medium body, light creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Interrestingand alto the combination is a bit too sweet and artificial, it is better as the 1 o2 beers I had earlier with the combinations of Strawberries and chocolate.

B330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 12/18
Black-ish body, holds a tan head.
Candied strawberry aroma - slightly medicinal fake, not much underlying beer to detect.
Full-ish body, slightly creamy, slightly dry, carbonation slight.
Really hard to look past the medicinal/cough syrup strawberry character going on here, touch of chocolate malt, has a sort of astringent bitterness.
Not quite right.
