(Formerly) Steve's Bklyn Blackout Ice Cream
(2015) Steve's Brooklyn Blackout Cake Ice Cream
milk chocolate ice cream swirled with
chocolate stout cake pieces and dark chocolate pudding
Admittedly, I have no idea what chocolate stout cake is. I think stout has something to do with beer but I’m not quite sure. Thankfully, Google exist for such reasons. So it is basically a chocolate cake made with stout beer to add more dimension to the flavor. It also says the cake is extremely moist which is a good thing to me. There’s nothing worse than a dry, crumbly cake chunk. Since I’m not accustomed to alcoholic beverages, I’m curious as well as hesitant to find out what kind of impact it will have on the flavor.
Like always, their clear packaging leaves little to the imagination so let’s dig right in.
Well they all can’t be winners. The milk chocolate base is one of the better chocolate ice creams you’ll find. The flavor is definitely of the milk variety but not some substandard Hershey bar. It’s also one of the denser options I’ve sampled from Steve’s.
The dark chocolate pudding is the worst offender though. While it does have a deep dark flavor, it’s very icy. You know how fruit swirls can get? Well that’s what we have going on here. Also for some odd reason it’s only found on the side of the container. I was expecting it to be swirled into the ice cream but that’s not the case.
I’m going to chalk this one up to bad luck. After trying three of the other flavors, I can’t help but feel like I got a bum pint. I don’t think I could envision this being what Steve’s was going for. If you’ve tried this flavor, please leave a comment letting me know if my experience was an abnormality or what you got as well.
Verdict? There’s so much wasted potential
Buy Again? If my experience was in fact a fluke I would consider it (I say nah)
