I hadn’t heard of this one before and had to grab it as soon as I saw it. Apparently I was sleeping in for it’s September launch. Wachusett makes some great beers (Country & Winter Ales? Yes please.) and I love sweet stouts. For me, an awesome beer is full bodied with a nice balance of sweetness and a dry bitterness. At 5.8% ABV it’s not quite a light beer but it’s certainly on the lighter end for it’s “weight class”.
My horrible pour, pictured below, aside, it’s a nice, dark color with a deep, khaki color head. Large aroma and flavors of chocolate with a nice bit of roasted coffee. This is a great beer between BBC’s Coffeehouse Porter and Young’s Double Chocolate Stout. If you like Rogue’s Chocolate Stout then you’ll love this beer.
