Wild Beer Millionaire

Rating: 3.75

The second of two beers that I tried recently in The Hanging Bat beer café in Edinburgh and my third beer from Somerset based Wild Beer Co. here. This one follows one from the breweries Fresh and Madness IPA beers that I have reviewed here previously and since both of those were beers that I thoroughly enjoyed I decided to give another beer from the brewery a try when I spotted this one on-tap over the weekend. Whilst this one didn’t truly reach the heights of the previous two Wild Beer Co. offerings that I have mentioned, this one was still a pretty good beer and easy enough to drink that it is well worth picking up if you get the chance.

Appearance (4/5): Dark, opaque black with a thin lacing on top for a head that has slightly more build up around the edges and a touch of lacing on the sides.
Aroma (7/10): Plenty of chocolate upfront with some lighter coffee and cocoa notes coming through as well. There is some sweetness appearing around the middle with some darker fruits and a rich aroma from this one. The salted caramel is present as promised as well but I found this quite light and fairly hard to detect, I’d probably have missed it had I not been looking for it.
Taste (7/10): Rich chocolate and some sugar with further sweetness coming through early on here, there is a milky taste to this one as well. The salted caramel from the nose is also present and more easily detectable than it was with the nose, a few darker fruit come through as well. Towards the end there was some butterscotch and vanilla flavours present plus a hint of coffee bitterness to finish things off with.
Palate (4/5): Smooth and quite creamy to drink, the beer has quite a sweet palate and proved very easy to drink as well. Carbonation was quite soft with this stout and the finish was a lingering bitter one.

Overall (15/20): Not a bad stout at all from the Wild Beer Co. and one that went down easily thanks to the good balance between the chocolate and the caramel, although the later was quite hard to detect on the nose. Definitely an enjoyable beer and a very smooth beer at that but I’m not convinced that it is a beer I’d go back to in the future.
