A heavily dark, shining though almost completely black brew pours from the tap into the glass and settles with a firm, thick medium brown head that retains itself well and leaves behind strong patching.
From the get-go, it's pretty impressive how close to the mark this beer is. Strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate, it's all there from the first sniff to the last sip, and consistently. There's a light roast, and the malts let you know it's still a stout, though it isn't especially roasty or heavy. The sweetness of the strawberry and vanilla aren't cloying, either, and the chocolate in particular is curbed to make the other elements as (or more) noticeable, but all in all the brewers pretty much nailed it. I haven't been particularly impressed with Saugatuck until now.
Smooth and well carbonated but not too crisp, this beer has a nice body, a certain robustness without being huge, and a great creamy feel.
