Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma was sweet-ish with some vanilla and a bit of burnt malt. The flavor followed with a little bit of strawberry thrown in. I like it.

Thin, soft, creamy and nougat colored foam. A little flavor of dried fruits, but pretty quickly take over a fine aroma of good chocolate. The taste is like a good rich chocolate dessert. Not chocolate mousse but rather the flavor that one finds in the chocolate ice cream or a chocolate milkshake. Nice thick creamy filling and a small discreet taste of coffee with cream. Easy taste of alcohol knocking on the ednl. A super stout suitable for all types of desserts, perhaps best for desserts with soft fruit that can bring some fruit acid in the palate.

22oz bomber. This beer is gimmicky, yet spot on. Maybe leans into the strawberry a little heavily, could’ve use a little more chocolate. Really a strawberry vanilla stout....all the stout tones are muted. Not imperial or excessive so it remains drinkable. Kind of have to give it credit for capturing what it set out to do, really has an ice cream artificial sweetness thing going on. Not unlike Shorts or Pipeworks monstrosities, but more drinkable. OK.

On tap at VCBW Fest, pours deep dark reddish brown with a humungous tan head. Aroma brings out loads of vanilla ice cream, and some berry fruitiness. Flavour is lovely, with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream - just like drinking the ice cream. Fantastic stuff. It sounds like a gimmick beer, but they nailed this.

Fin (8256) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle at The Library, Cowley Road, Oxford, Thursday 28th May 2015 off to see Pokey LeFarge at O2 with Pete, Will and Richard. Pours black with a creamy white head. Interestingly there is a clear ice cream aroma with a little fresh strawberry and vanilla showing. A really decent beer this smooth, rich, a little milky/creamy and of course vanilla with coffee/cappuccino flavours swirling around, there is a little berry fruitiness but not as obvious as on the nose. Surprised to find this here but it is very good. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Deep brown. Smells like jam, vanilla, roasty malt...definitely fits the name. I dont really honestly love fruited stouts, and this one really didnt work for me. Tastes like jam mixed with tobacco and coffee. It certainly fits with what they were going for, it just doesnt work for me.

It really does smell like neapolitan ice cream. A little fake, but delivers what it promises in the aroma. In addition to the strawberry, chocolate and vanilla, it also has some coffee and oak. Standard stout appearance. Black with a light tan head that stays around for an unusual amount of time. The taste and aftertaste is also just like neapolitan ice cream, again a little fake, but it’s hard to incorporate the real thing into a beer. A bit of coffee and oak also come out in the flavor. Slightly hoppy aftertaste to remind you that it’s a craft beer. Palate is slick and smooth. Overall, I give Saugatuck props for taking on such a bold project and delivering so confidently. This is a great sweet stout. Not my favorite style, but this one is very well done.

Aroma is apple, vanilla, chocolate and caramel. Taste is light rich malts with caramel hints and apple . Finishes roasty. Appearance is a dark clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
