3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 7/1/13 from a capped 12oz bottle sent to me in the Easter Bunny BIF. Pours completely opaque dark brown, nearly black, with an average tan head that leaves average lace, along with tons of clinging to the glass. The nose is sweet with strawberry syrup, plenty of milk chocolate, and a nice vanilla aroma. The flavor is the same as the nose, but all of the flavors are on the dry side, with a nice dose of bitter dark chocolate. The body is full and creamy with average, but very smooth carbonation, and a long dry strawberry and bitter dark chocolate finish. This is very pleasant.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bouteille. Moustache Blanche. Robe marron profond, petite mousse beige. Nez et bouche se rejoignent sur des notes très agréables de glace italienne à la fraise, avec des notes de vanille, de chocolat, de café et de malt torréfié. Bouche en est ronde et crémeuse. Finale légèrement sèche avec toujours ce parfum de lait fraise long et puissant. Une curiosité gourmande très réussie.

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 !
