This is pretty good. You can taste the strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla l at once and none of them really overpower another. They all mix well and itís very good.

Grumbo (883) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle from bierpost.com Poured almost black with a big off white head. Aroma is sweet and is exactly that of Neapolitan Ice Cream. Impressive. Taste is ultra sweet and if you closed your eyes and had your glass switched with a glass of melted ice cream I donít think youíd know any different. Interesting concept and bonus marks for achieving what was intended but way too sweet for a beer and it was an effort to finish a bottle of this.

marcus (7682) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 13, 2015
On tap at The Buck. Pours near black with a nice tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a strange fruit flavor that does actually taste like neopolitan ice cream. I donít know how they did that. Very creamy and tasty.

hopscotch (10147) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a thin, creamy, beige head. Not much to it, but it lasts. The aromatic highlights are strawberry syrup, almond liqueur and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor offers fruity sweetness alongside roasty, burnt bitterness. Good balance here, but the components donít merge. They remain detached. Finishes bittersweet and roasty, but the strawberry, syrupy sweetness lingers. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

Erasmus_ro (1926) - Alabama, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, black, with a few latte-colored bubbles hanging around. Aroma is chocolate ice cream, milk chocolate, some roast, light coffee, mocha. Taste is semi-sweet, chocolate, nougat, chocolate ice cream, light roast. Somewhat thin. Too thin for the taste. Fairly high carbonation.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Bomber from Sendikís in Brookfield, Interested to see in WI. Cellar aged 3 months. Served at 10 minutes out of the refrigerator temp. Pours a very very dark brown with a tan head leaving nice spotty lacing. Nose is led with sweet malts, caramel, strawberry, some bakers chocolate. Taste has sweet caramel, juicy strawberry, other fruits, some roast, some dark chocolate. Medium to full bodied without any real alcohol presence. A bit rough. Finishes in an interesting sweet-bitter blend, with some of the fruity strawberry lingering with the malts. Smoothes out and evens out as it warms. This is a bit of a one hit wonder, but well done as it is. Why wasnít the - fairly obvious - barrel aging for a stronger "vanilla" presence done? Would add depth and backbone as well, although maybe would be too sweet ... 13.8

Draught at Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2015
Dark color, almost black, with light brown head. This beer combines the dark malts, with a biscuity and nutty quality, for an original result, mildly sweet, with excellent vanilla, chocolate. It also has a light berry aroma.

TorbenJensen (831) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2015
Thin, soft, creamy and nougat colored foam. A little flavor of dried fruits, but pretty quickly take over a fine aroma of good chocolate. The taste is like a good rich chocolate dessert. Not chocolate mousse but rather the flavor that one finds in the chocolate ice cream or a chocolate milkshake. Nice thick creamy filling and a small discreet taste of coffee with cream. Easy taste of alcohol knocking on the ednl. A super stout suitable for all types of desserts, perhaps best for desserts with soft fruit that can bring some fruit acid in the palate.
