2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Ashley’s. Pours black, almost no head, no lacing. Aroma is sweet cherry, vanilla, oak, booze. Taste is strong cherry sweetness with some barrel notes. Very unbalanced. Thin, yet medium bodied, abrupt sweet finish, low carbonation. An interesting idea that just doesn’t come together.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours black or deep brown with an off-white head. Cocoa aroma mixes with a tart cherry and alcohol note. Syrupy cocoa flavor, bourbon-like molasses, definite cherry. Pretty nice one.

This was OK. The aroma reminded me of Cherry Coke. It had a dark color with a fringe of red. Kind of cool. The palate was average and smooth, carbonation was a little low. This was a beer that couldn’t make up its mind what it wanted to be be. There were some roasted flavors followed by Cherry that I’m not sure blended that well. Other fruitiness contributed to it being like a soft sour or fruit beer. Dryness at the end. Good but tasted experimental.

Had a glass on tap as part of a flight at Ashley’s. Very big and boozy. Not a lot of cherry, but some coffee and chocolate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
10 oz serving at Ashleys (Ann Arbor) where it is listed as Ashleys 30th Anniv. Cherry Dragon’s Milk Stout.
Black with traces of red-brown at the edges. Small head.
Full, smooth body. Appropriate low carbonation.
Good cherry note in the aroma carries over nicely to the flavor. Fruit is well balanced with dark malts. May be a touch too sweet for some.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Glass at Ashley’s on 3/30/13. Darkest brown pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of cherries, chocolate and vanilla. Cherry and vanilla flavor with some alcohol before a creamy chocolate finish. I have to be in the right mood to enjoy regular Dragon’s Milk, but this one was quite delicious.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Love dragons milk. However, this was not for me. The cherry was hardly to taste but yet it seemed less drinkable and thin. It also had a more brown red color than dragons milk.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap- pours almost black mahogany with small coffee tan head. Aroma of medicinal cherry (high alcohol smell) with a faint background of caramel smoothness. Stark bite of high alcohol and medicinal cherry increasing. Aftertaste bitter. May have been skunked

Draught at Ashleys. Dark dark red with minimal head. Cinnamon aromas. Light cherry malty flavor. Kinda of harsh.
