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...

BMan1113VR (7914) - 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.

MiP (15170) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle, 7%. Bready and fruity aroma, a bit strange. Seemingly clear brown colour. Small white head. The flavour has an OK spicy hoppiness, a little sweetness, some caramel. Compact mouthfeel and high carbonation.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2009
75cl bottle at home iRate: Deep dark chestnut brown with decently creamy tan head. Rich, wide ranging malt aroma with an earthy tea lead backing. Some dark brown sugar, almost molasses, provides bright sweetness. Some nice toffee notes give some impression of roast. Very nice but overall sweet aroma. Luckily the flavor is much less sweet. There is still sweetness from the malt but a much milder sugar tone. In fact it is quite dry considering the sweetness on the nose. CO2 is quite sharp on just the tip of the tongue... But strangely soft everywhere else. Dark caramel mixed with malt and some dried fig shows up to the party and are the last ones standing at the end.

floydian1 (1335) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 25, 2009
37.5cl thickened green glass corked bottle into tulip glass. An opaque red-brown ale with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of nuts, dark fruits and spicy yeasts. Flavours of caramel, nuts, raisins, cherries with a nice gentle spicy bittersweet finish. Remarkably light bodied for the style with easy drinkability. Not as complex in flavours as a good Belgian ale but decent nonetheless.

KyotoLefty (9021) - 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.

Nate (4114) - 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.

Dorqui (2174) - 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.

Ungstrup (33990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 27, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry yet sticky end.

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
