Details

If we were looking for a Sugar-Daddy, we might just go with Wild Beer Co.'s Millionaire. This decadent Sweet Stout was made with lactose, caramel, cocoa nibs and Cornish sea salt to give us this naughty little black number. Smooth chocolate flavours go nicely with a roasted coffee character just a hint of caramel and salt. A subtle bitterness lingers on top of the velvety feel on the tongue. The body is a little lighter than expected which keeps this stout from getting to sticky and sweet. Beautiful. How did we do on the number of double-entendres in this description?

Brewery Info

There is no other brewery in the world making beers like the Wild Beer Company. In fact, there are very few breweries that even look like Wild Beer Company. Most are a study in stainless steel, but walking into Wild Beer’s home on a remote Somerset farm, it’s wood that dominates the scene. Dozens of barrels are stacked floor to ceiling, each with its contents scribbled on the side: Modus, Ninkasi, Sourdough (yes, a beer using sourdough yeast). Not all the beers Wild Beer make will touch the inside of a barrel, but what is clear is that they all live up to their tagline: Drink WILDLY Different.

Take Millionaire for example, a chocolate and salted caramel milk stout that is every bit as decadent as it sounds. Or how about Wild Goose Chase? A tart, sprightly beer fermented using locally-harvested wild yeast and gooseberries? Or perhaps one of our favourite beers (ever?), Sleeping Lemons, a gose (a low-ish alcohol, slightly salty German beer) brewed with lemons preserved in salt – can there be anything more refreshing? Wild Beer is indeed wildly different. And while it can be tempting to take the innovation too far, head brewer Brett Ellis remains true to the aim of making all their beers very drinkable. That’s true whether it’s Zintuki, a quirky sour ale blended from Somerset Wild, their beer fermented using yeast cultivated from a nearby orchard, along with an ale fermented with champagne yeast and some local apple juice, or the more conventional ‘Fresh’ pale ale. Wild Beer pack more flavour in to their beers than many breweries can dream of.

As Brett writes: “We love sour beers, their unrivalled complexity and nuances make them both the most exciting and engaging styles of beer to brew and to drink. The romance and the art of brewing come through in a very different way when using the extraordinary uncontrollable wild yeasts and bacteria.

“There's wild yeast and bacteria everywhere, especially here in Somerset with so many orchards nearby. When you make a happy home for them in your brewery they just show up and spontaneously ferment – and sour – a beer.”

Drinkable but disappointing

Starting disclaimer, this is not a bad beer. Sadly it's just not on a par with some of the others I've ordered. It's a decent session, taste is ok but a long way off some of the other salted caramel beers I've had.

Probably my favourite stout at the moment. Excellent chocolate milk stout, sweet with tastes of vanilla and coffee, with a lingering hint of slated caramel at the end. Some mentioned this is not a session beer but I must disagree, highly enjoyable and I can (and have) drank many, one after the other.

Another Wild Beer Co. beer where you can actually taste everything on the bottle, with a slight hint of coffee to boot.

The saltiness is very subtle when served at the right temperature but comes on a little stronge when too cold; if you happen to buy this from a bar as I have done, try to get one that hasn't been in the fridge!
