On tap, from the bar downstairs at the Courtyard Hotel in Holland, MI. Perhaps because of the temperature, excessively cold, the aroma was kind of neutral, which downgraded the rating for this most excellent beer. Creamy, tart, sweet, milky, the strawberryness is evident on the chocolate flavour, amazing, indeed three scoops of the Neapolitan flavours in a pint.

Not bad! Strong aroma of chemical strawberry odorant, unfortunately, and it rather soaps the beer up overall alas, but that aside, its a fun, light-hearted stout to try some day you feel like drinking something malty but also neapolitan. Unfortunately theres a real deep sourness and bitterness that underlies the beer; and that brings down the score a fair bit. Even so, its like drinking the daiquiri of stouts; a fun, different flavor, and pretty tasty. I dont know if Id buy it again, but I wouldnt turn it down if I was in the mood for a silly dessert beer. Probably awesome for making beer floats with, hmm...

12oz. from Alma. The aroma is a little soy and hay. Pours almost black with fully diminishing light brown head, good lacing. The taste is sweet. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very good, not sure it was a fair trade for a Big Eddy.

Voodoo (596) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Pours a dark black with a small medium head which lingers.......aroma of chocolate, and oddly that smell of a loaded ice cream cooler.......taste is quite good. The chocolate and berry flavors show quite well and the smooth body relates to ice cream. For once a fun beer to enjoy. Not intense, just enjoyable.

A nice sweet stout with good balanced flavors of chocolate and light berries. Its not life-altering but its quite good.

Pitch black, off white head
Aroma - Neapolitan ice cream...it really does. Dark, soft strawberry
Taste of dark sweet malts, chocolate ice cream, slight roast, vanilla, that synthetic strawberry in Neapolitan ice cream, milk sugars, sweet fruity, yum yum, really like the ice cream sold as blocks
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, sweet. Finish as main flavour, smooth finish, dark chocolate.
Overall - Really liked this - its the real deal, tastes what it says it is. A good dessert stout.

hohops (880) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Appearance- pretty much black, opaque, a small light brown foamy head. Aroma- chocolate, vanilla, fudge, some strawberry, roast malt, milky coffee, leather. Taste- strawberry, cherries, vanilla, cherry brandy, chocolate, coffee, dark malts. Mouthfeel is fluffy and a bit rich. This actually tastes like its supposed to... quite nice, a bit sweet and syrupy though.

Intense complex aroma, and knowing you're having a neapolitan stout you kind of find the flavors fairly easily. Dark, sweet, complex and slightly boozy in the mouth. A bit syrupy. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Beer Store. Notes of roasted malts, vanilla, some fruit and cream. Body was a tad thin for my taste, but overall it was ok.

Visual: Pours very dark brown with no real head, thin ringed retention, steady streams all around.

Nose: artificial strawberry ice cream, vanilla, subtle malts. Candyesque, but appetizing. (lvl-4)-pungency

Attack: soft crisp, light slick

Mid-palate: aromatic artificial strawberry, long (lvl-7-sweetness)-slight cloying, roasted barley malt

Finish: dark cocoa notes, vanilla extract, lingering plastic artificiality

Summary: Definitely a unique flavour that grabs your attention with the first sip, much like their blueberry maple stout. It does however become very predictable and cloying halfway through. Not a ton of depth but the transitions are decent. I can confidently say I wont be having another one of these. Too much artificiality.
