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.

Very Very Dark Beer. Great taste and amazing finish makes this my favorite beer at Milly’s (and I’ve 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

Volgon's on crack, there's no chlorine taste in this (then again i was pretty well shellacked when i had this, so who knows). An excellent robust roasty flavorful taste. i dunno about the deScription where they say it's a meal in itself. some of Milly's nachos would be nice as well.

Pint at the brewpub, the girl pouring this seemed to be having trouble as she didn’t seem like she knew how to pour a "Guinness"/nitro style beer like this. This beer doesn’t seem to be very popular,because it’s dark I imagine, but it’s good. Very rich and full of flavor,a little chocolate,roasted flavor and a touch of citrus hops in the finish. Nice body,creamy and slick. I’ll be enjoying this one again.

Dark brown, creamy lingering non-nitro head. Deep earthy/chocolatey aroma. Some similar licorice notes as appear in the porter. Deep earthy malts, some light milk chocolate and deep bittersweet chocolate as well. Chocolatey finish. Not a great deal of oatmeal character, but it finishes bitter, roasty and quite tasty. No complaints here either.

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.

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.

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 doesn’t help me enjoy it. It’s still pretty good, though. Thick and chewyy but still really smooth and creamy.

Bottle from Un Dun. Bottle filled completely tot the lip. Black with tan ring and a little lace. Coffee chocolate and dark bread aroma with only a hint of fruit or oat tang. Rich roasted coffee and chocolate with some very mild fruity sweetness and roasted woody earty smoky ashy bitterness. Full body. Seems like it could use a touch more internal carbo. Not sure if that is a function of the overfilled bottle. Also have no idea how old it is since I’ve recently purchased some ancient and gross beers at Un Dun. Anyhow, very good, could have been excellent.

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.

Une canette acheté à Waterbury. Un liquide noir avec cette mousse crémeuse et bien dense. Un nez bien rôti et torréfié avec du lactose et des fruits foncés. Des saveurs bien agréables, généralement fruitées, rôties, fumantes, délicieuses, chocolatées, crémeuses. Une sensation en bouche des plus plaisantes. Belle texture presque soyeuse. Une finale amèrement noire.
