Saugatuck Brewing Co - Neapolitan Milk Stout

Is it worth drinking? Yeh

Drinkability: 8
Smoothnes: 7
Bitterness: 6
Flavor: 9

I was sitting at the local pub looking over the extensive list of beers they have on tap and I spotted this Neapolitan Milk Stout from Saugatuck Brewing Co.  After inspecting the list a couple times and the waitress waiting patiently, I decided to give this a shot and it was a good pick.  The first thing you can taste with this beer is the flavors of the Neapolitan ice cream.  The strawberry is a bit more prevalent than the chocolate and vanilla but you can taste all three.  Those flavors come out strong but wear off quickly.  They are replaced by the traditional stout flavors we all know and love.  The roasted malts will linger around until your next sip.

This beer is very creamy and smooth with a 6% ABV making it not overpowering with an alcohol flavor.  My first thought was this would make a wonderful dessert beer or even turning it into beer float.  Which is like a root beer float, just substitute the root beer for beer.  I did head over to the Saugatuck Brewing Co's website get a bit more information and they have suggested the following for pairings.  Rich and spicy foods: BBQ, grilled meats. Also, Cheese: Buttery (Brie, Gouda, Swiss).  Beer, cheese, and meats, all my favorite food groups.

While this isn't an everyday beer due to the sweetness, it is still quite enjoyable.  For more information, head over to their website:  Saugatuck Brewing Co
