Bottle (from etre gourmet). Pours dark brown. Aroma is intense strawberry bubblegum, chocoa, malt. Flavor is sour, bitter, cocoa, dark chocolate, malt. Finish is dry-dark chocolate bitter. Overall: ok, but weird. Marduk (8207) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2017
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Hazy chestnut color. Strawberries, sweet, caramel and bubblegum in aroma. Cocoa nibs, roast, marmalade, strawberries and bitter hops in taste. Bitter cocoa and strawberry bubblegum in aftertaste. Leaves mouth very dry. Awkward gimmick. But not a horror. I think? suurjuust (3674) - ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2017
330ml bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Dark brown beer, small beige head. Nose is very sweet, strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, malts. Flavor is... strawberry ice cream with malts and chocolate. Bitterness in the finish, but with cocoa powder dryness. Strange stuff. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer with a smaller beige head on top. Aroma of chocolate and red fruits, some sweeter vanilla, Flavor is strong on the bitter side of the chocolate notes, has some sweeter red fruits, slight vineous and a nice silky sweet mouthfeel with some roasty characters. Low on carbonation, long in the aftertaste. Very nice. jmgreenuk (9863) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 29, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2017 Bottle from the Bierkoning Amsterdam. Poured a hazy medium reddish brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is big strawberry, fake sugar, hop bitter, light creamy milk chocolate. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth foamy creamy tart strawberry sugary palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle from gonzo beer. Big deep black colour with a light tan head. Aroma strawberries and chocolate, with roasted malt. Taste is berry sweet. Medium to rich body. minutemat (5938) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
330ml bottle from Beer Gonzo. Pours dark with good tan head. Big strawberry cheesecake / shortbread aroma that remains intense for the duration. Taste continues with additional chocolate and creamy strawberries. Wasn’t sure how this would work, having had other poorly balanced fruit stouts before, but it does, and not in the way I expected. Very good indeed.
