Smells better than it tastes. Kinda a weird fake strawberry aftertaste.

A truly sessionable dessert beer. I could enjoy 1 or 8, either way would be fine.

12oz bottle poured into a Le Coq Imperial Extra Double Stout tulip glass.

The beer pours a deep jet black color, thick, viscous and opaque with a billowy two fingers of light khaki head that has nice retention and leaves huge swatches of lace. The aroma is very unique, neapolitan is the perfect description, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, a touch of roasted grain and raspberry jam, but this is quite interesting, very sweet and definitely has a lactose type aroma that really evokes the sensation of ice cream. The flavors mirror the nose, strawberry at first, a touch sugary and artificial but mildly jammy, long sweeping sensations of milk chocolate, light vanilla bean, rich malted grain with a tinge of roast and chalkiness. The mouthfeel is decent, a bit thin and carbonated, coats moderately well, creamy texture, very smooth and soft finish that is lightly dry.


Verdict: Quite the interesting beer, definitely a unique and spot on interpretation of Neapolitan ice cream. It's a bit sweet for me and the oddly roasted quality at the finish doesn't seem to fit, though it helps to balance the beer at least. Lovers of a dessert stout will find this right to their liking.
