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

SlovakSniper (4920) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
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.

Sample on tap at the brewpub. Deep black pour with reddish hue and an immortal creamy tan foam. Aroma is nice and roasty, light fruitiness, oatmeal. Taste is bitter, nice roasty/sweet balance. Palate is light bodied and silky. Good.

Can. Beautiful dark black. No head, but some lacing. Tasted before heading to a blind porter tasting set up for me to decide on some wedding beers (Exciting!) Not terribly sweet for being a sweet stout. Finishes somewhat dry in fact. Under 5% was a nice surprise. Thx johnnnniee!

Keg pour at Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is rich chocolatey/cocoa with some smoke that is a little bit off (as a kid, I burned some bird droppings with a magnifying glass and it smells a little like that). Appearance is nice dark pour with effervescence reminiscent of a nitro, beige finger-width head and nice lacing. Taste is much like aroma--dominant chocolate/cocoa with that smoky flavor. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average carbonation. Overall, much to like here but the slightly off smokiness is enough off putting that I would choose other oatmeal stouts ahead of it for sure.

Bulk_Carrier (3557) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 8, 2015
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.

Pours black with a creamy tan head that reduces quickly, but leaves a film. Oat is pronounced in the nose along with some coffee notes. Taste is on the bitter side. Full bodied brew that’s quite satisfying. I’d gladly have another.

BroSpud (2025) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2016 22oz bottle purchased from Top Shelf in Hampton. Poured black with no head. Slightly sweet and slightly sour. Not sure the bottle we got was fresh or properly handled, it seemed a bit off. Just OK. 2/3/16: Another taste, this time from can. Slightly better than the mishandled bottle but still not impressed.

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.
