Scipio (1274) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Pours a black with a tan head. As they advertise, the aroma consists of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. The strawberry really comes out and I get a strong impression of ice cream. Taste has a lot of strawberry and vanilla. Some good roasted malts along with chocolate are found underneath. This is more on the sweeter side. Shorter aftertaste of strawberry ice cream. The texture is creamy, while being medium in body. This is different and tasty. It is made very well. I can’t say I’ve really had anything like this before.

bottled - super dark color. Aroma and flavor of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Somewhat artificial though.

Dark with a with a tan head. Aroma is full of chocolate and berry with light vanilla. Medium to full body. Chocolate, lightly roasted malts, berry, and a good chunk of vanilla thrown in, in the flavor. Very sweet throughout. Finish is chocolate covered berries. I was expecting to dislike. Instead, I like.

DATE: December 30, 2017... OCCASION: Celebrating a Penn State Fiesta bowl win with a dessert beer and Episode VII... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith tulip pint... pours a dark velvet-black body with a healthy brown half-finger head rife with bubbles... strikes an impossible aroma of strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla, with the lactic attraction of a sweet stout... lightly toasted malts incline a welcoming milky promise... the effervescent quality suggests an ice ream float: smooth, silky---like liquid marshmallow... the sugars in this are appreciable but not insulting... caramel, brown sugar, milk chocolate, light vanilla, light earthiness and the swish of strawberry... quite a smorgasbord for the palate and a dessert in its own right.... this twelve-pack sampler is definitely worth taking a flier on...

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Pours a near black with a deep tan head. Aroma of roasted notes sort of coffee. Taste is sweet malt forward with cocoa notes in the middle and a faintly tart berry flavor. Unique.

Didn’t realize this was going for ice cream prior to ordering but it works and is not annoying. Dark pour. Nose is chocolate and some fruit. Tastes of milk chocolate, lactose, some fruity tones. Durham more present at it warms. Had at Gnarly Barley taking break from local brew at this joint.

Aroma is vanilla and chocolate. Taste is a sweet blend with just a touch of bitterness. Overall pretty good, but possibly too sweet for me.

Bottle. Bottled June 2017; BB undated; Drank Nov 2017 - Opaque very dark brown / black in colour. Tan head. Neapolitan ice cream aroma. Very malty; roasty malts, chocolate, lots of vanilla, caramel. Fruity; tangy strawberries. Hoppy; light hop bitterness. Sweet chocolate and vanilla roast malty with a distinct strawberry taste. For a beer, this tastes more like Neapolitan ice cream than I thought possible. Fun beer. Enjoyable. (2017-11)

humpah (379) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2017
0,33l bottle from Beergium. Pours black color with slight head. Aroma of vanilla, sweetness, roasted malts, chocolate, strawberry sweetness, lactose. Medium body. Nicely balanced, not overly sweet but still pleasantly sweet with complexity in it, sweet aftertaste.
