Picture taking a bowl of Neapolitan ice cream, mixing it up, then smelling and tasting the chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors. Now picture smelling and tasting those flavors in a stout. Can’t decide between a rich stout or an ice cream for dessert? Why not do both? Neapolitan ice cream = awesome. Beer = awesome. Neapolitan ice cream + beer = awesome squared.

Wow this actually pulls it off. Pours totally black with cappucino head. Serious chocolate aromas. Vanilla throughout gives a nice exotic sweetness to it. Strawberry lingers on the finish. 6.7% alcohol just disappears. On the down side, its a little overwhelmingly sweet and the strawberry tastes a little artificial. Wonderful thick, oily, mouthfeel. This is a gutsy beer and it pulls it off better than I could have imagined.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Very dark brown liquid. Vigorous pour gives a thick brown head that settles quickly to a brown skim. Aroma of dusty cocoa and vanilla with a bit of a chemical edge perhaps from the strawberry. Flavour is cocoa and vanilla. Each sip gives a strong taste of the strawberry which sneaks into the group and dominates the aftertaste. Some cocoa bitterness in the finish. Last sip reminds me of the slurry at the bottom of a banana split. Velvety body that would lend itself to putting this beer on tap. A gimmicky beer that seems to work.
