For a low ABV stout it's actually not a thin stout. What's interesting about this beer is that the strawberry is the predominant ingredient in the nose. I also picked up slight notes of chocolate. The taste is very interesting, instead of a roasted chocolate stout it tastes like a strawberry charleston chew, very pleasant if you're looking for a sweeter stout. I had this in tap and when I found a six pack I picked it up without hesitation. Know what you're getting into with this which is a novelty stout!

I NEVER enjoy beers like this, but this was fun. I smells and tastes like strawberries and chocolate .... I don't get any vanilla but who cares.

Big strawberry aroma and flavor but it's not off putting. If you bought this you knew what to expect given the name. Kudos to Saugatuck for characterizing strawberry so well in a stout.

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.

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown hue with a thin mocha head that fades to leave a creamy halo.

S - Aromas of big strawberry notes, freeze dried strawberries mixed with strawberry jam, nice chocolaty notes, very faint vanilla.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice chocolate, almost syrupy, light vanilla, the strawberries are not quite as good as the nose. They're not quite as fresh taste, maybe a bit too sticky.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, touch on the thin side.

O - Overall this is a solid milk stout, the nose is really really nice.
