ARH (830) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aromas are as advertised: neapolitan ice cream. Lactose, strawberries and cream, and milk chocolate can all be picked out by the nose. Itís a deep, dark, nearly opaque brown colored beer with a light, fizzy, beige head that dissapears leaving a slick, reflective surface and hints of lace. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. The beer is smooth with a fizzy carbonation. The medium body tastes like it smells with a stronger, bittersweet chocolate at the finish. Itís crisp with a dark chocolate / chocolate cake aftertaste that lingers briefly.

Sampled at Northgate Liquors tasting. What is this?! Fruity, ice creamy, Neapolitan flavors without being cloying.

Nocturne (1172) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2015
355ml bottle. Black with a short brown head. Strawberry leaps out in the aroma. The "chocolate" element is there in the form of roasted malt. Taste is much the same, and whilst strawberry isnít quite as strong itís very cohesive. Crisp carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. This couldíve been a mess but they made it work.

Deu (898) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle: poured a super opaque black body with tall frothy head that settled to around 3mm in the end. High carbonation and lots of lacing. The initial smell was a bit like yeast but I could also feel a faint smell of strawberries and maybe some vanilla. The taste was so interesting, a good blend of roasted malts, strawberry, ice cream and even some chocolate. Really smooth texture, almost syrupy. A very good and drinkable beer.

CJack (48) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle pour. Very unique (obviously). Aroma is sweet and syrupy. Taste is sugary cocoa with artificial strawberry/vanilla aftertaste. Very mild bittering. Body is thin, smooth mouthfeel, quick finish. Overall an enjoyable novelty, a bit oversweet with too much artificial flavoring. Rated highly because I can't turn down a milk stout ;) ---Rated whilst imbibing

Bottle from Stu666 and AllMyVinyl. This is proper stuff. Itís craft, because it delivers. Neapolitan in a bottle. I like this. Could be a bit thicker, but everything else is right.

AshtonMcCobb (3926) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - dark brown to black and opaque. Decent head. Nose - strawberry, chocolate and vanilla if course. Taste - melted Neapolitan ice cream. Chocolate coming through strong at the start then strawberry big on the finish. Palate - medium bodied with a rich creamy texture and an elegant finish despite the richness. Overall - full marks for conception. Well by full I mean 16.

allmyvinyl (6341) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark brown, thin beige head. Aromas of red fruit, chocolate, vanilla ice cream. Taste is just like neapolitan ice cream that has melted, been mixed together, and drunk oot the bowl. Rich, smooth chocolate dominates. Good.
