12 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma gives a large whiff of chocolate and roastiness at first, but recedes leaving strawberry and vanilla. In the flavor, the strawberry is rather strong, but tends to come across as somewhat artificial. Chocolate in there as well, with a presence of vanilla. Itís okay, but I canít say I really like it that much.

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 itís 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 itís 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.

tectactoe (3081) - Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Tap: Mostly black with dark brown highlights; fine-bubbled, creamy tan head that leaves behind moderate lacing. Aroma has lots of coffee, cream, burnt caramel, brown sugar, toasted malt, milk chocolate, a hint of vanilla. Not much strawberry in the nose, which is funny because the barrel aged version of this has TONS of strawberry in the aroma. Flavor is lightly roasty up from with notes of sweet cream, French vanilla, milk chocolate, iced coffee, a very small hint of dark fruit towards the finish. Really get the lactose-esque sweetness lingering in the finish, aftertaste packed with milk chocolate. Again, strawberry is almost extinct on the palate. Thinner body than expected. A good beer once in a while, though a bit too sweet to be consumed often.

Mr_Pink_152 (1665) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
355ml bottle from favourite beer. Deep cola black, and the sweetness gives it an almost cola taste. A touch too sweet for me.
