COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The deliciously darkest beer we’ve ever made is one of the easiest drinkers we’ve ever brewed.

With sweet, malty flavor and a creamy full body, our Milk Stout is the perfect cold weather beer.

Formerly Wachusett Sweet Sixteen Milk Stout.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Dark brown in color with a small head. Opens with roasted malt and mild coffee aromas. The nose is kind of bland and uninteresting. Maybe a light lactose sweetness and chocolate. The flavor is also pretty bland. Some coffee, toffee, roasted malt, and just a hint of lactose. Very minimal chocolate, too. Just mediocre at best.

burg326 (3840) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2012
22 ounce bottle that poured a dark brown almost black color, aromas of cream, milk, chocolate, and malt. Flavor is the same, almost like sweet malted milk balls. Light on the palate for a stout, but decent overall.

GatorGuy92 (28) - Valrico, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Nothing too exceptional here. Smallish head that quickly recedes. No lacing. Decent flavor but pretty bland. I think I am going to give up on Milk and Sweet Stouts. They just don’t do anything for me.

Damico (2649) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Aroma is milky, creamy, and light chocolatey. Pours dark crimson amber brown with a light tan head. The flavors of creamy milky malts from the lactose are nice and not heavy on the body. Body is lighter, easy to handle on the palate.

OldGrowth (2730) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle, from Luke’s Liquors. Ok aroma, sweet. Cocoa/ chocolate milk. Weak though. Blackish brown color, good head that faded quickly. Minor lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Ok, aroma disappoints. Good flavor, nice head with vigorous pour. Flavor best part.

nctomatoman (13) - Raleigh, NC, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Defines a "just plain nice, drinkable" stout - not Stone or BORIS the Crusher territory, but also easier to drink than those complex monsters. A bit yeasty and some coffee on the nose, rich, deep brown color, decent head that reduces quickly....smooth, with touch of bitterness on the palate, moderately full bodied with a distinct hint of bitter chocolate and some background coffee. Sipped before dinner from a 22 oz bottle purchased in Williamstown MA this summer.

MaBeer1972 (1361) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2011
An opaque black beer with a big frothy milkshake head. Light sweet roasty aromas. Flavor is smooth. Sweet roasty chocolate and coffee notes. Very tasty and easy drinking. Well made.

annunz123 (875) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Very inviting malted milk ball aroma (assuming you like malted milk balls as much as I do). Taste is predictably sweet, but balanced by carbonation and a touch of bitterness. I’ve thought other beers from this brewery were very ordinary, but this is a pleasant surprise.
