Sketch ice cream: help me get it right

Gooseberry | Jul 19, 2006 02:09 AM

So, I finally walked to West Berkeley, and got ice cream at Sketch. And I was totally disappointed. I got the burnt caramel flavour, and while the flavour was pleasant (not too sweet), the ice cream wasn't nearly rich enough to be considered ice cream. And I don't mean it was light and refreshing (gelato, for example, has less fat but is still very creamy): it was watery/milky, and there was no lingering taste after swallowing. Totally...blah, and underwhelming.

Did I just catch Sketch on a bad day? Did I get the wrong flavour? After so much praise on this board, I can't reconcile my experience with my expectations. Any suggestions of flavours I should have chosen instead? I'm willing to give it another try...
