Bottled from BierNavigatie.nl. Very dark brown colored, light brown lasting head. Beautiful strawberry milkshake nose, vanilla, cocoa, roasted notes, nutmeg. Smooth malty flavor, lactose, lots of strawberry, coffee kicking in, bitterness. Wow, this beer goes in all directions and still manages to be in harmony. This is what experimenting is all about. Fan-tas-tic job Kees, particularly in keeping this beer balanced. Sissio (1722) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAR 25, 2017

a strange stout
a surprising milk cream strawberry taste fused with toasted stout taste
very well balanced and with a good drinkability sait (5) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2016 does not count
Aroma is mainly strawberry chocolate. Look is pitch black, taste like a strawberry chocolate icecream. A sweet beer. Robeperse (88) - - APR 14, 2017
On tap. Colore marrone scuro testa di moro. schiuma abbondante medio persistente di colore beige. Al naso aroma di fragola Più avanti aromi di cacao. Al gusto odore di fragola e frutti di sottobosco rendono fresca la bevuta, Si sente il cioccolato dominante, malto tostato, sentore di caffè, il tutto ben equilibrato che ricorda le tavolette di cioccolato con marmellata di fragole. Nel retrogusto lungo dove domina il cacao, i luppoli floreali e essenza di pino silvestre richiamano l’amaro, mentre il dolce delle fragole rendono il tutto ben equilibrato. Di medio corpo. caesar (7170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle from De Caigny, btch# 16.41, BB 12/18, large sample. Dark brown color, short frothy brown head. Aroma of strawberry milkshake, slight milk chocolate, bit flowery, vanilla ice cream. Lots of caramelly and toffee sweetness, slight strawberry fruitiness, bit roast, slight malty bitterness. Wow. I think there is a lot of the caramel fudge stout in this one, together with a strawberry milkshake. I hope the strawberries hold up well, but I wonder if the beer would be a good one to age. But I had it fresh at least. I also dont think all people will like this one, probably a hate or love, but I actually love these kinds of experiments.

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. Lore (2864) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 18, 2017
dark brown colour, medium sized creamy beige head; aroma of chocolate filled with strawberry cream, or rather a strawberry-chocolate ice-cream mix; taste is the same with hints of vanilla; good strawberry stout erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2017
Super creamy appearance, nice. A sweet aromatic brew but also enough dark toasted malts to balance. Very nice and quite some complexity actually much more than expected at this abv. Very full taste too, dense and creamy. Bitter, roasted, but very sweet too. Great stuff. With so many ingredients it is stunning how such an integrated beer can be made. Great achievement! And simple just very nice to drink. (33cl bottle from Etre Gourmet) Icedwarf (1758) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
Zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is krachtig, licht bitter em fruitig met overduidelijk chocolade, vanille en ook aardbei. Goed bier waarbij de smaak lang blijft hangen. MelvinKalksma (1681) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, strawberry, chocolate and roasted malts.
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium dark brown head.
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts, caramel, strawberry and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The strawberry is more noticeable in the aroma than in the taste, but the flavour is great nonetheless. Could have been higher in the alcohol, making it more intense.
