Milliacus is available in both bottle and keg.
Milliacus is brewed according to a traditional method of the Bellovaques region, in Milly-sur-Thérain at the heart of Beauvaisis, on land belonging to Louis Bourdon, the Count de Clermont, a descendant of Saint Louis, famed for his bravery and devotion. Louis de Bourdon took part in numerous crusades, from one of which he is reputed to have brought back the recipe for a famous beer. But like his ancestor, Dagobert, a little absent-minded, he must have lost it in his castle's moat...

Tim Webb (429) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2009
75cl bottle. Lightish ruby-brown in colour. A classic northern French ambrée in the same mold as La Bavaisienne but richer, sweeter and ’older’ - not an exciting beer but genuine garde in character.

Hugh (210) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2009
75 cl with impressive old school cork. Very dark for a biere de garde, with white head. Although the beer is dated to 2011, it tastes like an old beer. But it is a very good one, hugely better than Jenlain or Theillier, the best of this style I’ve yet tried.

floydian1 (1432) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 25, 2009
37.5cl thickened green glass corked bottle into tulip glass. An opaque red-brown ale with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of nuts, dark fruits and spicy yeasts. Flavours of caramel, nuts, raisins, cherries with a nice gentle spicy bittersweet finish. Remarkably light bodied for the style with easy drinkability. Not as complex in flavours as a good Belgian ale but decent nonetheless.

eManu (543) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2009
From a 37.5cl bottle. Pours a dark orange color with a thick tan head that stay a long time. Aroma of dry fruits, malts and caramels. Flavors of dry dark fruits like plums and apples, a little sugar and caramels. A sweet and sour but very well balanced on all levels, long lasting taste. A very well made brew and very pleasant.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2009
75cl bottle at home iRate: Deep dark chestnut brown with decently creamy tan head. Rich, wide ranging malt aroma with an earthy tea lead backing. Some dark brown sugar, almost molasses, provides bright sweetness. Some nice toffee notes give some impression of roast. Very nice but overall sweet aroma. Luckily the flavor is much less sweet. There is still sweetness from the malt but a much milder sugar tone. In fact it is quite dry considering the sweetness on the nose. CO2 is quite sharp on just the tip of the tongue... But strangely soft everywhere else. Dark caramel mixed with malt and some dried fig shows up to the party and are the last ones standing at the end.

Bov (12530) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2009
from Village de la Bière, Strasbourg - hazy dark amber colour with big particules floating within; fine and stable beige foam; aroma of bread and apple, marzipan; sweet and rounded, medium-bodied; quite long bready finish - not bad at all

MiP (15452) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle, 7%. Bready and fruity aroma, a bit strange. Seemingly clear brown colour. Small white head. The flavour has an OK spicy hoppiness, a little sweetness, some caramel. Compact mouthfeel and high carbonation.

Corked half bottle

Dark amber color; big creamy head. It has a strong aroma of malt and caramel, mature; and candi sugar; a bit perfumy; similar to some English Barley Wine. It has a good body structure, with a sweet caramel flavor in the front, and a slightly more bitter caramel later; it has a correct bitterness and a balanced final. It’s a very good Strong Ale, mature, not exceptionally complex, but very solid.

BMan1113VR (7919) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Underrated. Pours with a smallish, frothy, off-white head. A dark, clear brown body. Some lacing and a thin layer of head retention. Aroma is nice with floral hops, melon, honey and a touch of alcohol. Taste is kind of thin, like a weak APA with a bit of caramel sweetness. Slight creamyness to the mouth with slightly fizzy carbonation.
