The Wild Beer Co - Millionaire

The day started with a cancelled flat viewing after I'd already arrived, then continued with a steady day going it alone in the office downstairs. Some taproom pint pulling and a Internet downage meant that I was assuredly looking forward to a Tipsy-Train tipple, so Jacks suggestion of an interesting stout piqued my intrigue. The design is simple, to the point and eye catching, with an orange stag staring straight at you on a matte black background.

The can certainly had the strong stout smell with tinges of sweetness riding the back as I opened the can on the train table. Now, full admission, I'm not really a stout person, but the idea of a sweet edge did intrigue me enough. First taste was very stouty with it's rich, dark and malty flavours hitting my mouth....and I was scared! However, a rich caramel and biscuity backing came along for the ride before a creamy, sweet finish ended the swig.

Every new taste was really a seesaw effect with the dark start which I wasn't keen on and then the sweeter 'millionaire' biscuit flavour that was really enjoyable. To be fair, I have to say i would buy it again as it was such an interesting drink, not regularly, but definitely to mix it up a little. Finished after 31 minutes and at 4.7% and 330ml it's a really fascinating crossover stout that'd I'd recommend you give a go.

Cheers!

Fresh and citrusy smells fire out after the can opening, just what I needed. First swig doesn't have that hoppy punch you may expect from an IPA, but a creaminess contains those flavours and delivers them in a different way. The punchyness is there with that lactose mouthfeel that coats the tongue really nicely, which gives a smooth delivery of those beautifully balanced ingredients.

First smell is a solid stout one of coffee with a sweet background. The following swig delivers that beautiful sweetness that is certainly reminiscent of smooth syrup over pancakes, before that coffee taste comes in. Have to say that the more I hit it back, the more I liked it, as the balance of coffee and sugary syrup came into play.

First smell just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.
