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.

Courtesy of trade bottle from Strykzone. This poured a dark brown just short of black with a foamy tan head and nice lacing rings. Nose of chocolate malts, mild coffee, and some ripe mild fruit. Medium in body with smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is tasty, with chocolate, coffee, and some floral hops. Sweet finish moving to light bitterness. Very easy to drink, and makes you wish for more.

Relatively recently traded bottle. Nice dark brown pour with a big, foamy brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt and a hint of coffee with sugar. Maybe a little thin on flavor. More roasted flavors and definitely finishes sweeter though. Fine.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Bomber. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head and poor head retention. Aromatic character is chocolate malt, a tough of bitter coffee rinds, and light lactose. Sweet a bit oily bitter sweet hints of licorice, birch, coffee, and chocolate malt tones. A bit sweet with a spicy carbonation that bite at the tongue. Decent.

22oz bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a lingering beige head. Aroma of a stout but not as crisp. The sweetness of this beer comes through well. Flavor of the roasted malts with a milk chocolate note too it and a little hops to balance it out. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

kramer (5086) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one inch frothy light brown head. The nose is roasty and burnt malt with a slight sour lactic twang. Pretty nice flavor, not over the top with the lactose, just a nice sweetness toward the finish. Up front it’s actually pretty dry and roasty, with some light cocoa notes. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Some lingering lactose sweetness. Pretty decent beer, not a stand out, but very drinkable.

A dark-brown (essentially black) beer that affirms my love for milk stouts. A somewhat sudsy khaki-colored head leaves nice lacing. Aroma definitely gives off lactose, and cocoa. Smells a bit mroe desserty than other milk stouts I’ve had. Taste follows the aroma. Creamy chocolate cake batter comes to mind, without too heavy of a mouthfeel. It’s not super sweet, but the body of a substantial chocolcate dessert comes to mind. There’s a touch of dark fruit in there...date? raisin? Super smooth and enjoyable with great drinkability for the style.

Aroma - Mocha, Coffee - light, pleasant smell. Appearance - Poured in a pint glass. Chcocolate color, with hints of light coming through the dark brown beer. Head is 1/2 of fizzle which dwindles and clings to the glass. Not the thick, creamy head that is desirable. Taste - Hints of chcocolate, coffee, and mocha, that are not intense, but pleasing, and sweet, but not too much. Palate - Smooth, and leaves you craving more. Overall - Best Wachusett brew to date. They have outdone themselves. I wish it was move widely available. This is my favorite brew they have made so far.

Very carbonated release for a stout, rich, thick, foamy head, full flavored, can taste the malt, coffee, and some vanilla as well, A pretty solid stout, price is right, Wachusett fits the bill as a real up and coming brewer putting out solid beer. I’d get this again.

Pours black with a garnet pinpoint. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Roasted chocolate aromas. Creamy with smoky chocolate covered nuts from front to back into a lasting finish.
