3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the Cask’s 5th birthday bash, 05/07/14.
Pitch black with a good sized tan covering that dissipates but retains.
Nose is chocolate dipped strawberries, vanilla fudge, light roast, they have done exceptionally well to pull off the aroma of Neapolitan ice cream here!
Taste comprises Neapolitan ice cream - not quite as authentic as the nose, dull ashen notes, chocolate, vanilla, berry fruit, faint lactic rinse.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light drying close with sweet licks.
Impressive stuff - really does what it says on the tin !

Keg at Cask P&K. Black, big foamy tan head. Aroma - definite neopolitan icecream, card and yeast in the background. Body is medium, pretty foamy. Taste is ashy, touch of strawberry, milk chocolate, dry finish with some yeastiness. Nice. Just a touch too much yeast character but an enjoyable stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Taphouse. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste adds vanilla, fruits - especially strawberries, licorice and caramel. Medium body and soft carbonation. Sweet with a dry finish. Not bad, but nothing I’d want again either.

Did you ever think a stout could ever find a place during the hot days of summer? Neither did I, until I tried this beer. It’s an ice cream parlor in a bottle. If that kind of thing appeals to you, this beer won’t disappoint.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with Niller - black coloured pour with a small tan head. Very sweet milky, sweet sickly vanilla and strawberry on the palate, kind of artificial sweetness to this, really didn’t get on with this, is just plain weird imho.
