COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The deliciously darkest beer weíve ever made is one of the easiest drinkers weíve 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.

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 Iíve had. Taste follows the aroma. Creamy chocolate cake batter comes to mind, without too heavy of a mouthfeel. Itís not super sweet, but the body of a substantial chocolcate dessert comes to mind. Thereís 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.

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.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Sampled at store near 9/27 in natick. Pour is dark brown with a small off white head. Nose is chocolatey and lactose sweet notes. Palate is full with a nice carbonation tickle that seems fluffy. Flavor is lactose sweetness with chocolate and some malted milk notes and dry roast notes. Very good.

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.

annunz123 (852) - 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. Iíve thought other beers from this brewery were very ordinary, but this is a pleasant surprise.

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.

thicksuds (408) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2010
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. Iíd get this again.

Damico (2482) - 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.
