I cannot believe I have not sat down to review this yet, as many times as I've had it.

Dark chocolate brown-black, with a thin wispy ring of head in THULSA DOOM.

Aroma of chocolate, chocolate ice cream, brownies, vanilla, frozen strawberries, strawberry syrup, caramel, slight metal.

Flavor of cheap chocolate ice cream sprinkled with coffee grounds, earthy roast malts, metallic milk, burnt caramel popcorn, more coffee.

Feel is semi-creamy, yet carbonated, roasty finish, it's just about right on the feel.

Overall, decent but nowhere near the goodness of Blueberry Maple. I like it but I don't love it. Would I buy again? Of course, I've had it several times. Won't blow your socks off though.

Solid black color, above average body,decent thick feel. Aroma was malted chocolate,vanilla,and a slight amount of strawberry. Taste was somewhat different,roasted malt forward. Followed by a mix of different flavors. A decent stout that delivered on the Neapolitan flavors, a very decent dessert beer

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear brown color with a large off-white colored head. The aroma is chocolate and strawberries. The taste matches the nose.

Very smooth dessert-type stout. Pours deep color with minimal head, low carbonation. Strong notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, lighter notes of strawberry and malt. A little too heavy and sweet to drink more than 1-2 with dinner but is great for sipping and slowly enjoying. One of the better fruit-tasting stouts I’ve had.

Has a beautiful dark color. The smell is amazing of chocolate coffee vanilla and strawberry present. The top and head is creamy. Goes down smoothly very rich and very potent. Aftertaste is as appealing as its aroma.

Wonderful stout. The aroma is a mixture of roasted malt, dark cocoa and strawberry preserves, with some creamy vanilla/lactose. The flavor captures the Neapolitan ice cream flavors, rolling in waves of rich chocolate, sweet strawberry, and creamy vanilla. The feel is quite nice, with a semi-full, slick mouthfeel reminiscent of melting ice cream.
Saugatuck has hit the nail on the head, and whenever I'm in the mood for dessert I reach for this one.

Neapolitan Milk Stout brewed by Saugatuck Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.00% This Milk/Sweet Stout pours out a nice deep brown color with a nice off white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with sweetness and roasted grains and malts. There is also some nice mild hop bitterness in the smell. The smell of this Stout dose remind me of Neapolitan Ice cream, not saying that is a bad thing. Between the look and smell this is really an inviting brew. Now for the taste, it bold with flavors. You taste a lot of milk and Neapolitan ice cream flavors at first. Then it mixes with the roasted grains and malts. The body of this milk stout is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. I will get this brew this it is different, but in a good way. If you are not a fan of Neapolitan ice cream or stouts this is not a brew for you. It is really hard to pick up on the 6.00% ABV in this brew, it goes down just that smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Sweet, Smooth, Clean and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Neapolitan Milk Stout a 4 out of 5. I would look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Saugatuck Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this Stout.

Neapolitan Milk Stout | Saugatuck Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick and tan, with solid lacing, and a black body.

Smells like strawberry and vanilla added to the chocolatey bits of a conventional stout just may have this brew live up to its ambitious title. Let's find out...

Oh ya, this is spot on! Nothing is fighting for attention here, either. A very smooth blend with an easy finish.

Heavier mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll rate Neapolitan Milk Stout | Saugatuck Brewing Company with an overall 4.5. This is truly a dessert of a brew.
