Milliacus is available in both bottle and keg.
Milliacus is brewed according to a traditional method of the Bellovaques region, in Milly-sur-Thérain at the heart of Beauvaisis, on land belonging to Louis Bourdon, the Count de Clermont, a descendant of Saint Louis, famed for his bravery and devotion. Louis de Bourdon took part in numerous crusades, from one of which he is reputed to have brought back the recipe for a famous beer. But like his ancestor, Dagobert, a little absent-minded, he must have lost it in his castle's moat...

Foxy-chestnut colour; smaller yellowish-creamy head. Heavily oxydized nose. Apparently no BBd, but beer seems to have been bottled March ’04. Hmmm. Nutty, buttery, cooking quality Madeira aromas. Sweet, malty, madeirised, very malty as in Kraftmalz; tastes as some artisanal or homemade cola drink. Bit watery MF, light bodied, but a background slickness, nearly cloying. All consistent with an ungraciously (sorry for the plagiarism, CC) aged. "Bière de Garde" means a beer fit for keeping. If a beer is near exhausted after 2 years, then I won’t call it fit for laying down. Sod it, I’ve berated people for calling every malt drink from Northern Gallia "BdG", but it would seem some brewers aren’t being any wiser.

Dark copper-coloured with a big foamy head. Earthy cellar aroma. Flavour starts sweet, but is countered by medium bitterness. Fruity with taste of plums? Well-carbonated, dry finish.

Dorqui (2188) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 14, 2005
Foam a lot fine and evanescent. Color copper or clear brown. Much limpid one and extremely fizzy. Very bubbly. Determined scent of spices. Plum and ribes is distinguished mainly. Acidulous with medium bitter. Fresh and refreshing. Alcohol of 7.0% that is not absolutely made to feel.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Plum and macerated raisin, brown suger-molasses, rich and malty, with red ripe fruits. Light sweetness and floral. Dark amber-brown clear, wtih thin off-white lacing head. Light-medium watery body with low-medium carbonation. Starts with neutral fruits, light sweetness. Some plum and brown sugar, light hops. Finish has more fruitiness, with light carbonic acidity. No bitterness. Earthy grassy taste, light yeast. After is clean, almost non-existent. The aroma and initial flavor hit makes it enjoyable, but the finish and weak staying power makes this a weak candidate for a really good bière de garde.
