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.

Bottled from notes. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malts with touches of berry, dark fruit chocolate and charred wood. The flavor is dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, some dark fruits and the peppers adding some nice heat as well. The finish has some peppery heat, coffee and dry bitterness. The alcohol is barely noticeable. Medium plus body with medium carbonation.

Bottle. The pour is dark, same as the normal. The aroma is similar to regular DM, maybe a hint of spice. The taste has mucho heat, hits you right away. Was not expecting that much, a little intense, but not a big heat guy though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at EBF. Pours coca cola brown with a big beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, a hint of spice. Taste is regular dragons milk, and then you turn into a fire breathing dragon. Nice heat. Well done, but I wouldnít want a lot of it.

arminjewell (8752) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pour on tap, dark black pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, some slight veggie note into a bit of lactose, touch of coffee notes into a bit of the chili. Taste was a mix of oak, roast, some vanilla, lactose note into big heated chili, some slight cocoa, finishing spicy. A bit over the top.

Wonderful appearance and aroma of the Dragonís Milk that I know and love. The flavor, though, is a different story. The peppers arenít so much noticeable in the flavor but the heat is just overwhelming. It slowly continues to build until the beer becomes hard to drink. Admittedly Iím not a big fan of chili beers and this one is just way over the top.

Dark mahogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is creamy, roasted malt, peppers, a nice heat. Roasted malt and peppers make a nice combination of taste. Nice lacing.

Chocolate brown in color with an off-white head. Sweet with a chocolatey aroma. Sweet chocolatey taste; lightly boozy with a touch of heat in the finish.

Pours a dark black with a hint of ruby. Small tan head. Roasted malt with dark chocolate up front. Hint of dark fruit. Hear is slow to build but becomes quite prominent. Full bodied. Long chocolate finish with continuous burn.
