2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Soft coffee and roasted barley on the nose, sharp hops, trying hard to be interesting but coming off average. Has a milky coffee flavour without complexity or challenge. You could probably drink a lot of this but I was hoping for more... like napoleon style conquering. Oh well.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 don’t think you’d 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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 don’t know how they did that. Very creamy and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 don’t merge. They remain detached. Finishes bittersweet and roasty, but the strawberry, syrupy sweetness lingers. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
