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...

eManu (535) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2009
From a 37.5cl bottle. Pours a dark orange color with a thick tan head that stay a long time. Aroma of dry fruits, malts and caramels. Flavors of dry dark fruits like plums and apples, a little sugar and caramels. A sweet and sour but very well balanced on all levels, long lasting taste. A very well made brew and very pleasant.

Wonderful appearance, dark ruby-amber body and solid reddish-beige head. Aroma is a complex mix of barley, malts, fruitiness, grains. Quite refined, much more than your usual French beers. The aroma starts as barley, with a middle of malts and finishes with a spicy alcohol finish. Extremely well blended and balanced - I’m impressed.

Countbeer (6222) - 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.

Médaille de Bronze, Concours Générale Agricole, Paris 2006
Corked half bottle

Dark amber color; big creamy head. It has a strong aroma of malt and caramel, mature; and candi sugar; a bit perfumy; similar to some English Barley Wine. It has a good body structure, with a sweet caramel flavor in the front, and a slightly more bitter caramel later; it has a correct bitterness and a balanced final. It’s a very good Strong Ale, mature, not exceptionally complex, but very solid.

75cl bottle. Lightish ruby-brown in colour. A classic northern French ambrée in the same mold as La Bavaisienne but richer, sweeter and ’older’ - not an exciting beer but genuine garde in character.

guzgorog (720) - FRANCE - DEC 17, 2014
Brune foncée assez limpide, magnifique mousse bulleuse qui monte très haut et que se tient très bien. Nez très malté, caramel, fruits secs. Bouche également très maltée, caramel, sucre, noix. Belle carbonation, pas d’amertume, très sucrée. Très belle bière de garde.

I wish I had more to say about this one but I wrote down my ratings and forget to add comments. Well take my ratings for what they are...

Hugh (208) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2009
75 cl with impressive old school cork. Very dark for a biere de garde, with white head. Although the beer is dated to 2011, it tastes like an old beer. But it is a very good one, hugely better than Jenlain or Theillier, the best of this style I’ve yet tried.

Skinnyviking (8904) - 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.

Versée dans le verre elle présente une couleur ambré foncé, légèrement troublé. Sa mousse est équilibrée, colorée, bien persistante. En nez et en bouche c’est le malt qui domine, avec des notes de caramel et de levure.
