Taste is straightup Neapolitan ice cream, insane, mocha, vanilla, chocolate & strawberry (little bit) ice cream, real ice cream taste, crazy, following, vanilla, cake, chocolate, mocha coated in bourbon / rum, not a big barrel, sweet sugar more but it coats it well. Pure syrup body. Insane really. Holly molly.

Too bitter 3.9 Not convinced that is RareR Scooop. Notes said Rare Scooop. But as that wasnt at festival. Not sure what happened. People suggested this or D od King, but im not convinced from my notes that its either as This was VEry bitter (and ive a clear memmory of thinking wow BItter) and neither of those two. So more just here so it doesnt get lost. See above for RARER scooop from earlier session
