#8: Neapolitan Milk Stout (Saugatuck Brewing Company)

Name: Neapolitan Milk Stout
Brewery: Saugatuck Brewing Company
Style: Milk Stout, 6%

I saw this bottle at Ølbutikken and I loved its cute retro style. It made me want to listen to oldies and have a milkshake. I at least had to get some Neapolitan ice cream to enjoy with it.
At first, this stout smells a bit burnt, so I was a little worried. But when I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised with the taste. The Neapolitan flavors—chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry—are all delicately there. Also, just like I'd hoped, having the ice cream with it enhanced the experience. Since it is less heavy than my usual stouts, eating more than a couple bites of ice cream before a sip of beer does make the beer get a bit lost in my mouth, but I discovered that having two sips of beer for each bite of ice cream was just about perfect. If I get another bottle, I'm totally making a beer float with it.

Label: 3.5/5
Beer: 4/5
