Poured into a shaker pint glass.

A- Pretty opaque black. Small brown head.

S- Mostly strawberries and coffee. Some vanilla like sweetness.

T- Strawberry, coffee, small amount of chocolate and vanilla. More roasty than expected. A touch too sweet but it is a dessert beer.

M- Nice, full, viscous.

O- Not too bad, the strawberry comes through the most and the chocolate is more of a coffee but pretty decent.

Pours a dark chestnut color with a minimal khaki head. Aroma smells of coffee grounds with hints of salted caramel and lactose.

The taste features a strident, chemical bitterness that exceeds black coffee along with some lactose up front, followed by one of the most off-putting finishes I’ve ever encountered. After the initial barrage subsides, the palate is assaulted by a crescendo of pure aspirin. I was leary about the label’s touting of “artificial flavors added”, and unfortunately those words rang truer than I would have liked. The moderately high carbonation and medium body afford a smooth enjoyable mouthfeel; it’s just a shame it has not the taste to match.

Overall, this is a bitter, synthetic mess that isn’t worth the time to try.
