A perfect blend of classic dry stout character with brilliant flavors of Neapolitan Ice Cream. Experience the nostalgic flavors of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry all in one glass because sometimes ice cream just isnt enough. 16.4

Keg @ GTMW 16. Deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. Nose is in-your-face, with loads of lactose, milk chocolate, and strawberry syrup. Flavor, as expected, is quite sugary and sweet. Some tangy cherry meat breaks up Cocoa and vanilla flavors. Creamy and quite rich. Full bodied. OK as a novelty pour. A bomber would be a real slog.

Tap, The Common, Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Ink black. Minimal head. Great melted and mixed neapolitan ice cream aroma. Sweet flavour, some faint dark chocolate under the strong dessert flavour.

12 ounce bottle at home Novel tasting beer. Taste strawberries right up front. Some vanilla too. Smells sweet of berries. Smooth on palate. Medium bodied. Above average beer and interesting taste.

12 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown with a one finger head. Aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and an artificial strawberry. Taste is a funky sweet artificial strawberry upfront followed by vanilla, and ends with roasted malts. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall I enjoyed it better than the Southern Tier Creme Brle, but it is not something I will seek out again.

reggiedunlop (3703) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Pours deep brown/black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is spot on to the name...notes of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry...nothing dominant and not too sweet. Flavor follows suit...surprisingly good...really nailed the theme of the beer while still being a beer before a dessert. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a chocolate/strawberry finish that turns roasty. Im surprised and impressed.

dnicolaescu (2439) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 26, 2017
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Almost black with faint ruby highlights, beige head. The aroma is chocolate cake. The taste is pretty sweet and syrupy, with notes of cheap chocolate candies. Light bitter and roasty finish. Not bad, but somewhat artificial.

ChadPolenz (1784) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2017
2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable (base style: 16A Sweet Stout)

AROMA: Strawberry flavoring with lactose sugar quite noticeable. Extremely faint vanilla. No chocolate/cocoa nibs, etc. No roasted malt. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Deep brown with magenta highlights. Creamy tan froth retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Sweet palette from beginning to end. Lactose is immediately prominent along with a general dark malt sensation but no roasted flavor nor bitterness. Chocolate/vanilla emerges strongly at the apex with a fairly rich sweetness, but these flavors diminish quickly. Strawberry is faint and exists as a subtle background note up front and re-emerges in the aftertaste. Works as a SWEET stout, but not a 16A per se. Flavorings could be a little more prominent and balanced. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-full bodied with a soft, creamy texture. Fairly low CO2. Very comfortable mouthfeel. Lingering sweetness. No alcohol presence. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: As a novelty beer this certainly is interesting, but has a ways to go to be a truly excellent beer to either style. 7/10
