Wachusett “Milk Stout”

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.

  1. Had this one two weeks ago and thought it was fantastic as well. Lots of chocolate and a hint of coffee, which is how I like it. The price is also a huge plus, I think I bought my bottle for $3.99 at Julios.

  2. Tried this one for the first time last night and have to agree with your review (and Matt’s comment). Incredible bargain and great tasting. This is a "gateway" stout in my book… a dark beer a light beer drinker might enjoy. Thanks for the reco!
