This is another interesting and clever creation from Kees.  He calls it his chocolate strawberry milk stout. 

The beer is an oatmeal chocolate stout at its base, but with kilos upon kilos of fresh whole strawberries added.

In the aroma, the strawberries are very strong at first though they seem to subside as the beer warms and the stout characters take over.

A rich sweet chocolate flavour greets the tongue, with the developing roasted malt bitterness building toward the back palate.  The strawberry is more subdued in the flavour, though certainly present in the background.

There is heaps of flavour packed into the 6% body, and the flavours seem to compliment each other rather than being disjointed or artificial.  Kind of like the early evening build-up to tackling Kees’ Caramel Fudge Stout!
