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.

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.

Pours black into a tulip. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Chocolate and espresso aromas. Thick and dry with sweet hot chocolate upfront turning to licorice before the lasting espresso finish.

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.

Moderate roasty malt aroma with a chocolate character and some raisin-like fruity esters. Opaque brown-black with tan head that recedes slowly to ring. Raisins and roasts play nicely together in the mouth with plenty of malty sweetness. Medium body is somewhat slick in texture with low carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub with dirtymike, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Rastacouere and Volgon.

New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #20. Small sample at the brewpub, also in the company of Volgon and brewer Dirtymike. Near-black, oily-viscous body with a lasting head...dark, roasty nose, chocolate and licorice...very sweet body, balanced-just-by espresso...smooth body, could be fuller.

Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Split 2-ways.

Appearance: Black with a medium thick and easy to revive creamy brown head and good lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, herbal presence and light ashes.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, but more expressive. Caramel, roasted malts, vanilla and light ashes. Sweetness level is moderate. Light bitterness.

Palate: Meidum to full body. Medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel. A tad creamy too. Roasty finish.

Overall: Very tasty oatmeal stout and quite decadent for a 4.9% abv beer. Interesting interpretation of the style. Good balance. Loved it.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about forty five seconds leaving some light clingy stringy lacing. The smell started off with a nice sweet to roasty coffee. Eventually, as it warmed, there was a nice sweet milk chocolate and a touch of bitter dark chocolate. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and blended nicely. The aftertaste was really nice as it combined all the previously mentioned flavors in a sticky fashion. A moderately quick sweet finish clings nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth and lets in a nice graininess from the oatmeal. Overall, sweet stout or oatmeal stout. Whatever it is, I’d have again.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Re-rate: A definite chlorine/chemical taste from my hometown water supply. Ughh. First rating: Starts off smooth and mellow, ends with an intense, rich, roasty flavor that never seems to go away. The addition of hops is also present in the end. I'll be drinking this a lot in the near future.
