COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
O.G. 1.050 | 35 IBUís | 4.9% ABV
Our award winning ale is a traditional sweet stout. Rolled oats bring out the flavor and richness. It is full bodied and a meal in itself.

$5.99 for the 650 mL bottle purchased from Top Shelf Brews. To over-sized snifter, it pours a mahogany-tinted dark rust brown with which a thin-ringed beige head barely even a fingernail in length. Aromas of ash, green cardamom, sorghum molasses, firewood, milk chocolate, and sweat. Tastes the same with the addition of DME, stale coffee, and roasted corn. Pine needles, oats, cloves, and cotton experienced at swallow. Was surprisingly spicy - cinnamon, cloves, and star anise - at its perplexing finish. Overall, I had fun with this stout. More than I was expecting.

In short: A typical roasted creamy oatmeal stout. Good execution of a standard style.
How: Nitro-tap at brewpub.
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head.
In long: Nose is big straightforward pleasant roast, nothing more, nothing less. Taste is pretty much what you can expect from a roasted nitro oatmeal stout. Burnt grainy oatmeal, lactic notes bringing a milk chocolate sensation, light coffee notes, green herbal hops. Some bittersweet black chocolate in the after-taste. Full creamy mouthfeel. Typical example of the style, I feel like Iíve had a beer like this 100 times before and I could have another 100 and not complain. And despite all the talk lately on the TV I guess I really donít understand what people mean when they say New-Hampshire is a swing State because the brewpub staff told to put my pants back on.

Tap at Millyís in Manchester, NH. Very dark pour, nice head. Roasted malts with some lactose sweetness. Decent body, but a bit thinner than "full". Solid nonetheless.

Goodgrief (1792) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 26, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Pour is dark nitro looking pour. Creamy head and tons of lacing. Strong roasted flavor with a lot of oatmeal amd some milky lactic notes, which doesnít help me enjoy it. Itís still pretty good, though. Thick and chewyy but still really smooth and creamy.

AirForceHops (3203) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 16, 2011
On tap.Poured a dark black. Sizable foamy head, long lasting with lacing on the glass. Smooth, sweet, malty and nutty with a touch of hops. Slight hint of chocolate and coffee. A hefty, rich and dense brew. This was a good stout but I liked the John Stark porter better.

puboflyons (2151) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 21, 2009
On tap at Millyís. The pour is very dark and almost black with a creamy, frothy tan head. The aroma is of oatmeal, hops, and malts. A heavy and creamy mouthfeel that gave me a tan moustache. The taste had a good level of hops and oatmel. It was smooth altogether.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Another good dark beer from Millys-. Pours a nice deep dark brown verging on black and a nice lasting head. Aroma id nice dark roasted barley- light coffee, dark chocolate sharp and bitter, almost a slight tartness. Flavor has more of that real acrid burnt malt almost a sharp acrid bitterness- roasted barely- coffee, and a light sweet caramel flavor. Finish is a bit too dry but still good.

mcox90 (1547) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 11, 2009
On tap at Millyís. Pours a jet black with a 1" creamy tan head. Fair amount of tan lace coats the glass. Mouthfeel is fantastic. Smooth and creamy, goes down like heaven. Aroma is light chocolate notes with malt. Sweet flavor with light chocolate, malts & molasses. Nice easy drinking stout.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Growler. Pours black with copious foam. Aroma is subtle tones of roasted malt, chocolate, and molasses. Flavor was of deeply roasted malt, and a slight finish of hops. A bit light and watery on the mouthfeel- good for sessioning but not nearly as rich as the style commands. Similar in many ways to their General Stark Porter.

Very Very Dark Beer. Great taste and amazing finish makes this my favorite beer at Millyís (and Iíve tried them all). You have to be in the mood for a dark beer or else you may regret the decision to order one, but it is very good
