3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Sarro and crew who very graciously hosted us during the Hill Farmstead 3rd anniversary snowstorm. Dark pour with white head. Intense strawberry/vanilla aroma, definitely artificially flavored, actually smells like neapolitain icecream. Taste is therefore much the same, sweet, artificial flavorings were well integrated and the beer didn’t taste too bad.

Can’t believe the ratings on this beer. It doesn’t deliver as promised and it definitely tastes fake. I didn’t drain pour but wouldn’t buy again.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a thick tan head. Strawberry notes dominate the nose along with some roast and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Velvety mouthfeel. Taste like Neapolitan ice cream all the way until the end where there is a slight bitterness. The strawberry aroma and taste has to be artificial, right? Not necessarily a bad thing but something I am not that keen on in my beer. The bitter ending is not that great either.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro. Pour is black with a thick foamy white head. The head lasts throughout the entire tasting, good lacing. Aroma is of light milk chocolate, roasted barley, and a bit of sweetness (caramel/vanilla). Flavor is very heavy on the lactose with the sweet caramel and roasted barley in the finish. Smooth carbonation.

Forgot to rate this. Remember it being like you would expect. Nothing exciting but as advertised.

Bottle. Strawberry and chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with giant tan head. Sweet berry, chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal hops and ash flavor. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Milk chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla aroma -- big surprise. Black brown with a large tan head, nice lacing. Roasty charred malt, chocolate, strawberry flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Pretty good, but I could have done without the char in the flavor.
