12 ounce bottle. Pours a barely translucent black with a very small beige head. Faint sweet roasted malt nose with a hint of berry. First sip is sweet roasted malt. Yes, there are notes of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Middle is mostly cocoa flavor, like a brownie. Thin bodied for a stout. Finish is light bittersweet chocolate. Slightly chewy mouthfeel. phaleslu (10246) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2017
12 oz. bottle from Cappy’s - Norwood. Pours a dark brown with some amber highlights and a small tan head that settles into a ring and some film. All three flavors are present, with some mild roasted malts, earth, tobacco, cream, and syrup. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, earthy, sweet mouthfeel and medium soft carbonation. So much like the Blueberry Maple Stout in that it’s sweet, really leans into its flavor profile, isn’t really something I’d like in a full serving - and they look alike.

Bottle poured with fizzics. Huge beige head. Nose of artificial candy and roasted barley. Bodey is a bit watery. Taste is overall highly sweetish and artificial. Taste is lingering to the end... Not my cup of tea... Towey1989 (2815) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle at The Leeky Tap, Leek. Pours a black colour with a very thin tan head. Aroma of strawberry syrup, some vanilla, slight chocolate and subtle lactose. Taste of strawberry ice cream, some chocolate, slight roasted malts, a little caramel, a hint of lactose and subtle vanilla. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, sweetish, slightly syrupy, neopolitan bitterness in the finish. Sure is neopolitan, chocolate, subtle vanilla and artificial strawberry. Nice and sweet but slightly syrupy and novelty. Enjoyable though. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Keg @ GTMW ’16. Deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. Nose is in-your-face, with loads of lactose, milk chocolate, and strawberry syrup. Flavor, as expected, is quite sugary and sweet. Some tangy cherry meat breaks up Cocoa and vanilla flavors. Creamy and quite rich. Full bodied. OK as a novelty pour. A bomber would be a real slog.

Tap, The Common, Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Ink black. Minimal head. Great melted and mixed neapolitan ice cream aroma. Sweet flavour, some faint dark chocolate under the strong dessert flavour. unclefrito62 (276) - Stow, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2017
12 ounce bottle at home Novel tasting beer. Taste strawberries right up front. Some vanilla too. Smells sweet of berries. Smooth on palate. Medium bodied. Above average beer and interesting taste. mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - FEB 4, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown with a one finger head. Aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and an artificial strawberry. Taste is a funky sweet artificial strawberry upfront followed by vanilla, and ends with roasted malts. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall I enjoyed it better than the Southern Tier Creme Brûlée, but it is not something I will seek out again. Carlisle (743) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Draft. Pours dark brown with light tan head. Nose of strawberry and vanilla with chocolate notes. Strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate flavors dominate. Sweet finish.

Pours deep brown/black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is spot on to the name...notes of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry...nothing dominant and not too sweet. Flavor follows suit...surprisingly good...really nailed the theme of the beer while still being a beer before a dessert. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a chocolate/strawberry finish that turns roasty. Im surprised and impressed.
