This was a a wonderful surprise. Got it in a growler at the local beverage center in Marcy.
It looks good, smell is a mix of malty sweetness, hint of hop bite in the background.
Overall it meets my "if I only had this beer this rest of my life, not a bad deal" test for a great product.
I would rate this as a stout that is tough to improve on. Has the deep flavor of a smooth stout, with just the right touch of a hop tang.

Poured from a bomber from Glen Beverage Co. in Glen, NH into a Duvel tulip. Served at about 45 degrees.

Appearance: Dark, cola color with a medium tan head. A "spiderweb" lingers after every sip.

Smell: Dark chocolate with a very subtle hint of coffee. Some brown sugar lingers in the back.

Taste: Very roasty for a milk stout. A fairly strong chocolate and molasses flavor with a bitter coffee malt backbone. The alcohol is almost non-existent. Did I mention roasty?

Mouthfeel: Fairly smooth with a somewhat strong carbonation. Feels slightly heavier than expected when going down.

Overall this a great representation of a milk/sweet stout. The carbonation is a little stronger than I would like for the style, but I love the roasted chocolate and bitter malt flavor. A decent price and availability makes this beer a winner in my book.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #61 (Feb 2012):

LOOK: Rich, dark, opaque brown, beige lacing

SMELL: Bready, roasty, coffee

TASTE: Silky, smooth, sweet, malty, molasses, milky, semi-roasty and astringent, touch of toffee, coffee, chocolate, cake

Milk Stouts are fairly hard to come by, and this one hits the mark. Wachusett also touts it as: "The deliciously darkest beer we've ever made is one of the easiest drinkers we've ever brewed." And we’d have to agree. Intensely dark, delicious and drinkable. Buy and try this one.
