very sweet desert style milk stout... overall too sweet for me, but coupled with some cheesecake or similar desert would be good.

Delicious, full bodied stout with hints of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla - just like the label says! There is a slight bitterness to the flavor but it's not enough to detract from richness of the stout itself.

On tap at Beer House in Lombard, IL. Arrived in a snifter.

A: Arrived in the snifter a deep brown-black with a thin tan head, which dissipated fairly quickly. Lacing was patchy.

S: Oh, the sweetness that rolled out of that snifter! This was not unlike the aroma of heavy whipping cream, with some strawberries and chocolate syrup mixed in.

T: Creamy and sweet indeed, this actually tastes not unlike what I would imagine a mouthful of Neapolitan ice cream would, if taken with a hefty swig of sweetened medium-roast coffee. The malt profile is present, but the lactose, vanilla, and chocolate flavors are the stars, with hints of berry rolling around the edges.

M: Smooth, thick, and creamy, this makes for quite an enjoyable drinking experience.

O: For a dessert beer, or as a stout refuge away from the relentless and unending array of hop-forward beers out there, this is quite tasty. Will repeat.

Creamy taste, smooth finish. One of my favorite milk stouts.

Poured from a chilled 12oz bottle into an imperial pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with minimal head. Aroma fits the spirit of the beer perfectly although the stawberry is a little on the artificial side. Tastes of a wonderful mixture of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Again the stawberry reminded me of freeze dried stawberry ice cream instead of fresh strawberries but i think this plays into the neapolitan theme. Wonderful beer that lives up to its name.

Wow....great beer saugatuck! Pours an opaque with ecru head and no lace. The scent carried hints of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. The taste was a nice medium bodied stout with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a solid offering.

Artificial strawberry in the smell and taste. I don't get the high rating.

Good sweet stout; not cloying or overpowering sweetness.
