COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer, aged with Chili de arbol peppers in the barrels, is one of a series of innovative specialties to sneak out of our Dragonís Milk Cellar. The earthy pepper character mingles with the dark roasted tones of the Dragonís Milk as the spice slowly warms your palate, pleasantly contrasting the deep malt character. Pairings red meat, smoked foods, balsamic, rich cheese & dark chocolate.

Iíve never had Dragons Milk in the bottle (only on tap) so I donít quite have a direct comparison. At first the aroma and body are behind what I remember, but it opens up very nicely. The flavor is great right from the get go - bourbon, chocolate, chili, vanilla. Love the lingering mild heat on the finish. Not as good as DM was on tap, but still very very nice.

NikkTwist (2401) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Draft at Khyber Pass. Black pour with light brown foam. The chili heat is apparent from the outset and (expectedly) only grows with each sip. A softer chocolate stout underneath but the spicy chili dominates. The underlying beer is hidden. It is all about the Chilli!

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a large dark brown foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with black chocolate and some light bourbon notes with subtle chilies flavours is pretty awesome. Aroma of roasted malt and black chocolate with some bourbon notes are good but the chillies notes are a bit string for my taste buds and ends up overtaking all the other flavours. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Probably well brewed but this is still a bit too hot for my taste buds.

sjogro (1905) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle shared by RandomStrangerNL at Ex-ABC. Dark brown, light tan head. Starts smooth and oathy but the chilies kick in its hard to taste anything else. Mild sweet insane spicy.

Maakun (2703) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2016 Bottle shared thanks to RandomstrangerNL. Very dark brown with dark beige head. Nice chilies, dark chocolate, sweet grains, toffee, bourbon, vanilla, slight smoke, soft spices. Quite sweet with light roasted bitter finish. Over medium bodied with pretty strong chili burn. Pretty good, but gets more and more spicy the more you drink. I think Iíd have a hard time to finish more than one whole glass, still a nice beer though.

kermis (9041) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle sampled at THT. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of veggie chillis, malt, caramel, toffee and milk chocolate. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet. Above medium bodied with a massive chilli burn in the throat and soft carbonation. Too much with the chillis.

Cybercat (4635) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Taps opaque dark chocolate brown with a thin but serviceable light tan head. Aroma presents roast malt, smoky, molasses and mocha tones. Got me going Pavlov! Delightful flavor delivers roast malt, coffee, pepper, smoky, coffee and cocoa tones. Pepper is just enough to get your attention without making your palate feel in need of the fire department. Mouthfeel features firm body and good fizz, while finish has peppery, roast malt and mocha tones. Maybe this is what dragonís milk really tastes like--

wchesser (1774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Dark brown, much thinner than I remember the regular being. Nose has some earthy, dried chiles that carry through in flavors, along with some darker malts and light chocolate. Very light heat.
