In this beer blog, we are going to check out a newer brewery from Michigan. The brewery is called Saugatuck Brewing Company and the beer is called Neapolitan Milk Stout. Saugatuck Brewing was founded in 2005 in Dougles, Michigan by Barry Johnson. In mid 2008, the next part of their plan was in motion, which was to start bottling their beers. Let us get into this beer.
It has a jet black color with a tan head on the beer. The smell is milk chocolate to chocolate milk. The taste is a silk to smooth chocolate to the beer. The aftertaste is roasted chocolate to coffee to the beer. It is close to the ice cream. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Nostalgic flavors of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla… Our flavors the Mt. Baldy radar tower a local landmark installed by the U.S. Air Force in 1937.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, milk stouts always had that feeling of drinking ice cream. Saugatuck Brewing took it to the next level. They design this milk stout to totally take on ice cream feel. I had it in the bottle and I could pick up Neapolitan Ice Cream, which I remember as a kid eating it all the time in Michigan growing up. I am pretty impressive by this beer and I might have to retry their beers again. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
