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...

Bov (10771) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2009
from Village de la Bière, Strasbourg - hazy dark amber colour with big particules floating within; fine and stable beige foam; aroma of bread and apple, marzipan; sweet and rounded, medium-bodied; quite long bready finish - not bad at all

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. Clear brown colour. Sour earthy roasty malt and caramel aroma. Flavour of toasted malt and caramel, bit of soil, some sourness and fruitiness. Sweet earthy finish.

JorisPPattyn (8659) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2006
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.

KyotoLefty (7975) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle from Bon Marche, Paris. Malty, earthy, caramel aroma, with raisons and plums. Deep dark, amber-orange color with lace. Sweet dried fruits and caramel flavor. Nice but a bit too sweet. Earthy hops, prunes. Nice body, nice balance, tasty malts.

Skinnyviking (7940) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle. White lasting head. Clear dark amber body. Bottle and labels could fool someone into believing that it is containg wine. Why ? Barley aroma and mild barley flavor with notes of cocoa and vanilla.

BMan1113VR (7905) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Underrated. Pours with a smallish, frothy, off-white head. A dark, clear brown body. Some lacing and a thin layer of head retention. Aroma is nice with floral hops, melon, honey and a touch of alcohol. Taste is kind of thin, like a weak APA with a bit of caramel sweetness. Slight creamyness to the mouth with slightly fizzy carbonation.

Countbeer (5503) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle: Nice firm plop and there is a very nice clear darker orange amber colored beer with a vast thicker but small and slow disappearing (into. ) white/off white/ashy head. Smell is very nice, pleasant for the nose: malts, barleys, vinous, toffee, wood, hops, earth, hint of bourbon Taste is nice malty/barleys mixed with toffee, wood, raisin, spices, light to medium bitter, cream, prunes, light vanilla, some slight hints of syrup/molasses while it is not sweet. Nice nose, nice body but the aftertaste is a bit weak, guess if this was stronger or more present in a delicate way it would have scores a 4 or higher. There some hints of malts, raisin, orane, light yeasty and some bitter and spicyness. Low to light medium carbo, soft (light) creamy mouthfeel, a good medium body and a creamy texture. One of the few good Biere de Garde that I have had.

SilkTork (5432) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
This is like the same brewery’s Rebelle, but stronger, and with slight but noticable chocolate/licorice notes from a greater amount of amber or crystal malt. Some stale biscuit notes, but less of the damp leaves. Overall, more pleasant and enjoyable than Rebelle.

Clear deep reddish colour with a tan head. Malty, light caramel sweet aroma with some fruity notes. Caramel sweet flavor with bread notes. Dry sweet finish.
