Smells like strawberries. Near black. Creamy cappucino colored head. Tastes almost exactly like the ice cream.

12oz bottle. Poured a black color with brown edges and a tan head. Yep, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Truth in advertising ...

Interesting with a definite strawberry character to the aroma. Flavor has some of the chocolate coming out dont pick up much vanilla and theres some major bitterness in the finish.

Aroma is a little unfocused - some roasted malts, cacao, coffee. Taste is pleasant - chocolate & vanilla with burst of strawberry. It really does ape those little plastic cups of neopolitan ice cream. Creamy finish.

Too much strawberry for me. I thought it was overpowering and too dominant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Ice Cold Beer Here 2. It pours black with a light tan head. The aroma is has some sweet cocoa, coffee, strawberry and cookie-like malts. The flavor is very sweet with more cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and strawberry. It has a full, oily body with some roasted malt and earthy bitterness in the finish. Sweet and dessert-like. Very true to the name, although it is a little more roasted and bitter than it has to be, IMO. Really pretty tasty though.

12 Oz bottle. Pours black brown with a ready brown head. Aroma of artificial strawberry and chocolate. Very sweet flavor with strawberry, chocolate and vanilla.. Creamy mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Overall, sweet and artificial.. Not my style.

Bottle. Garnet color. Strong aroma of vanilla and caramel, a little dried fruit, raisins, a little fresh. Taste: too vanilla (artifical?), apple, strawberry, caramel, chocolate, sweet, truffle, creamy.

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.
