If you haven’t heard of this before, you are in for a treat! All the reviews and even delicious cocktail recipes that include Wisconsin Stout in their mix are here to help you dive into the world of this gorgeous drink.

The Ultimate Review

For those who have never tasted one this beauty of a drink, this section was made just for you.

The Appearance

Upon pouring, you will notice the body is a lovely clear brown colour, with a mildly foamy, tan coloured head which stays put for a good length of time. You will see the gorgeous carbonation that is obviously present in the body.

Slowly, the head will start to dissipate and leaves behind a full-bodied foam cap, with some residue on the glass. As you start to drink it, Wisconsin Stout will leave dashes of foam on the inside of the glass which are almost white in colour while maintaining their bubbles.

The Smell

On the nose, you will be hit with a wave of maple syrup. Once this dies down, it is followed by a hint of vanilla cream, sweet chocolate and milk sugars. It displays so much sweetness here which is truly delightful.

The Taste

As it hits your tongue, caramel, maple syrup, vanilla cream and a bit of metallic alcohol are present. Once you swallow, the syrup and alcohol will kick in even more. However, the finish is a lingering of maple, sweet chocolate, vanilla and a slightly metallic touch too.

The alcohol is the running undertone through the entire tasting experience, but it has aromatic qualities that stop it from being wholly bitter.

The Palate

The body and carbonation are both of the medium variety. When it hits your palate, you may find it is a tad on the foamy side, but the creaminess starts to kick in almost immediately, allowing it to go down decently.

It coats your mouth long after you have finished the drink and you will realise that some heat is left behind too.

The Bottom Line

You won’t get the colour that you’d expect to see from this variety of tipple, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a pint!

So, now you know what to expect from Wisconsin Stout, you can decide whether you want to drink it straight or mix it up a bit by making one of our tasty cocktails below.
