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.

I'm a sucker for milk stouts. Ever since I tried Saugatuck's Blueberry Maple Stout, I've been hooked, both on Saugatuck brewery, and on stouts in general! This stout is very enjoyable, and smells exactly how you would imagine it does, like a big ol' bowl of ice cream in front of you. There's no way the flavor would be able to match the alluring smell, but it comes pretty darn close. The feel is very heavy, and the taste is very sweet, and quite chocolately. Depending on the type of night you're going for, this can be a good or a bad thing. I enjoy this stout immensely, but I can only drink one at a time, because of the sweetness. If you haven't tried it yet, I enjoy the Blueberry Maple Stout just a bit more, because of my ability to drink multiple of them. The sweetness is not quite as overwhelming as it is for this one. That is not so much a diss to this beer, but a compliment to their Blueberry Maple Stout. I can't say enough good things about it! This one is also a bit more expensive, at around 10 bucks for a 4-pack (Vs 10 bucks for a 6 pack of the blueberry stout, so that one always takes the cake for me).

Poured 12 oz bottle into snifter. Basic black with thin 1 finger tan head and minor lacing. Nose does have the distinct aroma of strawberry and chocolate reminiscent of neapolitan ice cream. Flavor is more milk stout like with some swiss cocoa and hints of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry. It is not overly sweet, light bitter. Medium creamy body and light carbonation which is on par for a milk stout.

DATE: December 30, 2017... OCCASION: Celebrating a Penn State Fiesta bowl win with a dessert beer and Episode VII... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith tulip pint... pours a dark velvet-black body with a healthy brown half-finger head rife with bubbles... strikes an impossible aroma of strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla, with the lactic attraction of a sweet stout... lightly toasted malts incline a welcoming milky promise... the effervescent quality suggests an ice ream float: smooth, silky---like liquid marshmallow... the sugars in this are appreciable but not insulting... caramel, brown sugar, milk chocolate, light vanilla, light earthiness and the swish of strawberry... quite a smorgasbord for the palate and a dessert in its own right.... this twelve-pack sampler is definitely worth taking a flier on...

Pours opaque dark brown in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is cocoa, vanilla and light strawberry. Medium bodied and carbonation, sweet. Makes for a unique dessert stout.

Bought this at 8.99 a four-pack and had low expectations. Pours dark brown; minimal light brown head. No sticky lacing. Aroma is a surprising chocolate and strawberry ice cream. Taste is chocolate up front with hints of coffee and strawberry and even less of vanilla. Feel is light-medium bodied, with slightly higher than average carbonation for a milk stout. Overall, I thought this was very good. I would be interested to see how this would evolve if aged in bourbon barrels to bring out a little bit more of the vanilla. For the price, I'd say it's well worth trying. Nothing really to dislike about it - and if you are afraid of fruitiness in your beer, don't stray away from this just yet, the strawberry is relatively minimal, and at worst, is a nice touch.
