The Wild Beer Co - Millionaire

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!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
