Disgustingly sweet, flavors are a muddled mess. This is about as overwhelmingly hyped as last nights fight was when I tried this. Easily the worst beer of the night.

Idk what beer some of these reviewers had below, but the poor I had was delicious. Not overly sweet at all.

Strawberry is up front but not overpowering. Chocolate strong on the back end with a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is amazing. If they barrel aged this it would be awesome.

Poured into More tulip from draft at the release

Pours thick black, minimal head that dissipates quickly and lines the glass

Cold, the nose was a bit muted but definitely picked up the strawberry. As it warms up, it smells fantastic with a nice balance of all three adjuncts.

Taste is similar with Shaun's signature cocoa nib treatment followed by a blast of strawberry and touch of vanilla. Overall, nice balance. Sweet but not too sweet. No bitterness. Straight dessert.

Mouth feel is thick, velvety, a bit sticky. Similar to the Sides Notes but maybe a notch or two thicker.

Personally, I found this to be a pretty divine treat. Definitely an as advertised dessert / pastry stout. Great first edition to Shaun's new "Side Note" series, Henna, under More Brewing. Looking forward to future releases.

You smell and taste all of the flavors of Neapolitan ice cream. They are all on point. The strawberries especially. I never thought that strawberries could taste is awesome in a stout. Low carbonation that is adequate. Thicker bodied stout, but not quite motor oil. Not a hint of booze. This is a fantastic stout!

Poured from 22oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a deep black oily body with a small head. Little lacing.

Aromas are heavy and potent - chocolate covered strawberries dominate here. Taste is milk chocolate, strawberry, cocoa, sweet. Not as much strawberry in the tongue as the nose but still very present. Mouthfeel is on point, silky smooth with low carb.

They hit this one on the nose. Just as advertised.

Thick, delicious strawberry on vanilla wafer cookies--sweet but not at all cloyingly so...fantastic!

The chocolate over powers all the other flavors and leaves your palate yearning for some balance. Half way through my pour the dark chocolate made it undrinkable and had to drain pour it. Aside from that the beer had exceptionally nice characteristics. Mouth feel was nice and viscous, smell had me thinking I was about to eat a Neapolitan ice cream sandwich

Shaun didn't disappoint on his first stout at More.

Strawberry hits you in the face at first sip. As it warms, the the vanilla, chocolate and strawberry blend nicely together. The nose on it is fantastic. Very thick and sticky mouthfeel. Left a nice lacing on the glass.

This was a winner. Pumped to see what is next.
