Notes: Light in alcohol but full in flavor, Mill Yard Mild is a great session beer(suited for drinking in quantity during a single session). Boarding on a Porter style beer, Mill Yard Mild has a nice roast flavor. Coco Nibs were added during the brewing process to also give the beer a nice chocolate flavor. Come enjoy a Mill Yard Mild.

Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass. A big thanks to BPK59 to sharing this with me.

A - Pours a deep chocolatey brown/black with a creamy one finger head that faded at the typical rate leaving little to no side lacing.

S - Rich dark bakers chocolate and some light coffee.

T - More of the same. Not quite as robust of a porter as I'd like. The chocolate and roast malts are there, as well as a little coffee, but not quite as strong.

M - Smooth and creamy like a porter. Still, the flavors feel a bit thin in the mouth.

O - This isnt a bad offering, its just there are so many very good examples of porters out there. Its an above average porter, but that doesnt mean I'd want to spend this kind of money on another growler.

A growler filled at the brewpub last week. A mild porter is conceptually intriguing.

A: The porter is a darker brown color, black from afar but more of a syrupy brown on closer inspection. A thick head, over a finger and a half, came with the first pour (promising for being over a week old) and laced before I dug into the beer.

S: A mild aroma, light with just enough roasted aroma to smell like a porter. Coffee and chocolate are present.

T: Thin by design, the porter packs a small dose of flavor into each sip. The choocolate and coffee are prominent, albeit briefly. Flavors don't linger, but then again I think that that is the point. The flavor is light and fleeting, a punch that fades away. Don't expect a rich porter, instead enjoy the softness.

M: The mouthfeel is quite mild. There is, though, enough roasted malt flavor to keep the palate involved. A mild porter that trends much closer to the mild side.

D: Very drinkable, as it weighs in under 5%, possibly even 4%. Kudos to Milly's for taking this approach, drinkable and small. And thanks to our waitress for offering a taste before I filled the growler to ensure that I wanted it.

Had this one last night.

A nice black color with a cocoa colored head.

Smells of chocolate, roasted coffee, and roasted barley.

Taste was a bit thin and watery a nice porter flavor with hints of the roasted barley and coffee and a dark chocolate finish.

This would be a good session beer if I liked coffee and loved dark chocolate. I would have another, but could never drink just this for a night.
