A perfect blend of classic dry stout character with brilliant flavors of Neapolitan Ice Cream. Experience the nostalgic flavors of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry all in one glass – because sometimes ice cream just isn’t enough. 16.4°

jgb9348 (4772) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Deep, pitch black coloured body with only the slightest hint of light coming through at the bottom, all with a thinnish, single centimetre tall rich brown head. Aroma of booze, alcohol, whiskey, oak, milk, fudge, cherries, coffee, roasted malt and strawberries - super pungent but nice. Full-bodied; Deep, dense flavour of roasted malt, mushrooms, cherries, strawberries, tobacco, figs, fudge and a lot of alcohol throughout. Aftertaste shows a lot of complexity with flavours ranging from a sweet stout to an imperial stout and back to an altbier - very interesting, but pungent all around and it will leave you guessing throughout. Overall, a nice and super complex beer that doesn’t fit any profile of the style on the site or on the bottle - interesting and enjoyable on every sip. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$2,79 sampled at home in Washington a bit more than a year later on 23-September-2014.

Pours a dark black color with a tan colored head that overall looks pretty nice. Not much of an aroma. Little bit sweetness smells with some milk chocolate. A strawberry base to start with that goes throughout the whole thing. Vanilla comes in about halfway through. Light chocolate syrup flavors touch in. A sweet finish. Not bad. Probably couldn’t drink very much of it. Almost a dessert type brew.

From growler at Hopcat EL. My favorite stout to date. Sweet but light with a bit of alcohol kick. Just bitter enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light to medium sweet flavor with sugary chocolate, ripe strawberry. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation.

Keg at CBC covent garden - dense black beer, very, very obvious sweetness and fruit. Unusual but not unpleasant if still a tad unbalanced

Look, I normally don’t go for nitro beers but overall this was pretty good. My buds must be morphin. On tap at the magic tree. Good overall beer experience with some roasty stuff in there. Yes, at first I was thinkin it was mouth coating but then it came together. Good stout feel but nit sure if it could be gentle enough to be a sweet stout. Easy going fer sure. Better than most stouts, even if they were co2’d. Quite acceptable overall.

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Draught @ Craft Beer Co. Clapham. Opaque black color, medium sized beige to light brown head that lasts for quite a while. Smells like "kikkertjes", a candy I used to buy as a kid. Taste is candy, sweetish, liquorice. Quite weird but interesting.
