On nitro tap at Engine 15 in JAX.
Great looks, with a fine, durable, creamy tan head over a clear dark brown body that's nearly opaque.
Lightly sweet, with a moderately strong flavor for style. Interesting and distinctive, with hints of cream, roasted nuts, vanilla, milk chocolate and light grains.
Creamy smooth, medium body.

120z bottle poured into glass. This beer looks between black and dark brown with no head. The smell is strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. The taste of strawberry comes out first, followed by vanilla, then finally chocolate. Both strawberry, and chocolate have a strong presence. Tastes like Neapolitan icecream.
This beer does't feel like a stout.
Overall this beer excedes expectations. One or two in a setting is good enough more than that would be overkill. It is on the sweet side. Definitely worth drinking again.

This was just about everything I thought it would be, pretty good...

I picked this up not really expecting it to taste like neopolitan ice cream, and it actually did not, but it was tasty indeed. A dark, practically black beer with the undeniable scent of neopolitan ice cream - through and through. Mouthfeel was slightly watery, but still leaning towards medium-bodied. Though I couldn't smell any malts, I did taste it though making a the beer balanced in my eyes. A very good, desert beer, without a doubt.

Nitro draft pint, cascading lasted for quite some time. Rich, deep brown color with a creamy head. Delicious, with hints of chocolate and sweetness from the milk. An excellent stout.

Appearance - Pours thin black with thin light tan head that quickly dissipates to a small ring.

Aroma - The aroma is a pretty balanced smell of dark chocolate, strawberry and a very mild vanilla. There is also a mild maple and some roasted malts.

Taste - The taste is similar to the aroma but I am getting less strawberry and vanilla. There is a nice chocolate and roasted malt flavor combined with a bitterness on the finish.

Feel - Thin for a stout, mild carbonation pretty dry bitter finish.

Overall - The aroma was promising but I am just not getting very much strawberry or vanilla in the flavor.
