Thick and delicious this is spot on vanilla, chocolate, strawberry ice cream in a glass. Tremendous mouthfeel. Would have again anytime.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep black color with a one-finger creamy khaki colored head that has good retention and leaves some lacing behind

S- smells of roasted malt and light char, with a milky vanilla sweetness. Undertones of strawberry & chocolate

T- milky sweet & sugary up front with strong notes of vanilla cream. Mid-palate gives a kick of sweet strawberry before finishing with sweet chocolate and charred malt. Lingers of strawberry and vanilla

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that finishes creamy

O- as advertised and quite tasty, would definitely pick this up again

Pours dark with a caramel head on top that goes away quickly. Smell is very sweet, can make out vanilla. Taste was sweet like how it smelled but with hints of chocolate. Was a really good Sweet Stout.

This was pretty nice surprise. Not everyone could satisfactory add strawberry taste to stout, but these Michigan guys tried - and succeeded! I'm looking forward, expecting new bold experiments from Saugatuck.

Light porter compared to most. Light flavors. Not heavy on on overtone of flavor. Definitely can taste hints of "Neapolitan" ice cream flavor. Not creamy at all though on consistentcy.
