Can from 12/29/18 release. Poured into Belgian tulip.
Look is dense pitch black with a tan head. Nose is strawberry, milk chocolate, and vanilla pretty much equally balanced. Taste is strawberry, vanilla, and some sweeter chocolate up front, then the same strawberry and vanilla in the middle and end but with the chocolate flavor transitioning towards dark chocolate with just a touch smooth bitterness in the end, finish is lightly bitter and lightly sweet, lingering dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall awesome how this captures the vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry Neapolitan ice cream flavors but even more awesome is how it does so without making it too sweet to drink, adds a nice dark chocolate element and bitterness that smooths it and keeps it easier to drink than literal melted ice cream would be. Awesome stuff.

The beer pours a light and bubbly brown head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a dark and oily dark cocoa black that looks good.

The smell is pretty good and comes out as a combination of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.

The taste is pretty good with the same kind of notes but with a few more. The taste has a sweet chocolate but also a bitter cocoa note as well in the finish. The strawberry is sweet but it isn't as pronounced as it is in the smell. The vanilla is still the same.

The feel is good. It has a heavy body but feels thin and dangerously drinkable.

Overall, this is a pretty good beer and worth trading for.

Not good at all. Poor integration not a great mouth feel. I've had mediocre gimmick beers from CA that are on par with this.

The beer pours Pitch Black with a thin layer of a tan head that recedes quickly. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of strawberries, fudge, molasses, and banana pudding. It tastes of strawberries, whipped cream, fudge, molasses, and banana pudding. The feel is medium and sticky. This is an awesome stout, the strawberry comes out with out being too sweet, however I didn’t get much vanilla.

This beer is a beautiful statement, a forceful call for uprising against the oligarchy of cheap and nauseous conglomerated beer. Vanilla, Chocolate & Strawberries singing strongly, truthful to the name Imperial Stout: RESPECT BEER!
