Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of strawberries, chocolate. Taste is strawberries, roasted malts, chocolate, some light hints of vanilla. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique and enjoyable beer.

Solid stout that's very creamy. Doesn't have a lot of carbonation. At least the draft that I had.

On tap at Bonds Tavern in West Orange. Pours a jet black ebony hue with moderate frothing. Candied aroma replete with hints of chocolate and molasses. Similar overall flavor profile.

Disappointing look all together but not horrible. Fantastic taste and aroma, just as advertised with notes of strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. Interesting, unique, and overall good beer!

Dark pour, not much head. Aroma is exactly as advertised...Neapolitan, interesting. Taste is same, very interesting! Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry all present and accounted for. Sweet and milky, almost need to scoop it into the glass. Great dessert beer, could never drink more than one at a time.

When you pour this, it is immediately disappointing, but as soon as the aroma hits you, bam, you know this is what was advertised.

The look is pretty flat, but nicely clear dark with tiny bubbles. The aroma is of strawberries, chocolate (just barely) and vanilla. Who'd a thunk the best use of that combo ever was in beer (ale, of course).

They don't say it is for breakfast, but that seems to be working fine. Very highly recommended.

Aroma is actually Neopolitan
Strawberry chocolate
You've got that in flavour with a milky edge

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma is very typical for a stout but with the added element of strawberry (albeit very faint). The taste is sweeter than I was expecting (for once a Sweet Stout that is actually sweet!) and once more the strawberry is there. A very interesting and enjoyable beer.
