COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
O.G. 1.050 | 35 IBU’s | 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.

Creamy roastiness and their incumbent dry bitterness play joyfully with the raisins bathing in molasses...Slightly vinous undertones blend well with the sweet chocolate malt flavors...A perfectly competent stout...

Drank at Milly’s Tavern in Manchester, NH. Black color with a brown foamy top. Roasted coffee and raisin taste. Smooth stuff. I thought it was oatmeal flavored? I didn’t taste that at all. It should be called Milly’s Raisin Stout.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 30/09/2005 Black and slightly rich on the palate with a fruit aroma. Crisp coffee roast flavoured finish.

[tap @ Milly’s] Pours almost black, with a thick white head. Flavors are moderately sweet, with plenty of chocolate and roasted malt coming through. Full mouthfeel. A nice, well made stout.

Like all the Milly’s, a little thinner than the style might demand and a little lower in alcohol. This one had a great creamy widget / nitro mouth feel. Black with a tan head. Notes of coffee and chocolate. As all the others from Milly’s this could use a stronger malt presence.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2005
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.

tasted at brewpub with dirtymike. Pours a near black with an off white head. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. Bitter and roasty taste up front with chocolate, coffee, tart fruit coming through in the middle with a firm, lasting citrus hop finish with roasty bitterness.

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 I’ve 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 don’t understand what people mean when they say New-Hampshire is a swing State because the brewpub staff told to put my pants back on.

$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.
