Had this beer at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp in Chicago and was extremely surprised at how complex the flavors were in this beer. It tasted just like the ice cream... had to get a few refills on this one!

Just had one off the nitro tap. Creamy with distinct strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate, both smell and taste. For me it starts sweet berries and ends w some bitter chocolate, and it works good. Nice brew!

Neapolitan Milk Stout

Look: completely black with a tan head that dissapates to a tiny ring.
Nose: The smell on this one is very strawberry rich. The strawberries was about all I was smelling with a bit of candy sugary feel to it.
Taste: It tastes like strawberry first, chocolate second and some milky flavors along with all the typical stout flavors, slight coffee notes.
Feel: It is a nice full bodied and extremely smooth stout.
Overall: I absolutely loved this beer. I love Neapolitan ice cream and I also love stouts and this is a good combination of all of those flavors. The alcohol is hidden very well.

355ml bottle poured into a tulip glass

Look: Opaque black pour with a centimetre or so of bubbly tan head which recedes to a thin foam cap fairly quickly. No lacing to speak of.

Smell: Think ice-cream, in particular Neapolitan ice cream. You get hit with chocolate, vanilla, strawberries and malts almost as soon as the cap is off the bottle. This sounds like the sort of aroma profile that shouldn't work, but by golly it does.

Taste: Oh dear $DEITY - coffee, chocolate, vanilla, fruit. You name it, it has it - a veritable taste explosion but in a good way. There's the teeniest hint of alcohol in the aftertaste but that doesn't detract from the fact that this tastes amazing.

Feel: Kind of anaemic compared to some stouts, but the flavour makes up for it - feels full bodied, even with relatively little carbonation. Fairly light ABV-wise too, so drinkable with it.

Overall: If it were feasible to have my blood replaced with this then I probably would - it's absolutely amazing. Sadly, it was a 'chance' inclusion in a mixed case of American beers that I bought recently, and the folks that I got this from don't list any Saugatuck ales at all, which is a pity. I suspect that this is going to take some hunting down, but given the chance I'll have it again.
