COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragonís Milk is a 17th century term used to describe the strong beer usually reserved for royalty. This strong ale was aged in oak for over 120 days. The aging process extracts flavors from the wood, which contribute to its complex character. Hints of bourbon flavor perfectly compliment its roasted malts to produce a beer fit for a King.

Solid. Seems like good value for the price. Like a BA Old Rasputin-lite. Thin body.

Dark black color with good lace. Big malty sweet chocolate , esprosso grounds aroma with stewed fruit and vanillin as it opens up. Big. Rich. Boozy whiskey finish. What more can one ask for. Primo stuff.

I still believe that this is hands down the best bourbon stout in terms of year round availability at a reasonable price. It also happens to be a pretty decent stout. I’d probably give it a tad lower rating if it weren’t for those two reasons but I have to give credit where it is due when I can go into most every grocery store where I live and pick up a bottle at any time. That has to count for something. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle pours dark brown w cognac highlights, fine tan cap. Taste blossoms with malty toffee, oak vanillin and bourbon caramel candy corn. Rich and smooth with a full palate that shows some dry hop balance. Fruit flavours of black raisin and very smooth alcohol.

Bottle. Pours black with thin creme colored head that dissipates. Mild chocolate aroma over light carbonation. Thick mouthfeel, bourbon vanilla flavors in a roasted malt stout. I bet this is nails on draught. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (534) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown mahogany color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is a pleasant light roasted malts, bourbon, oak, vanilla. Flavor loses a lot of the bourbon character, more of a light roasted malts. Lighter in body than most bourbon barrel stuff Iíve had. Lingering light roasted malts and a touch of the bourbon barrel. Decent. Nothing fantastic.

Bottle from Colonial Spirits. Pours a deep dark brown with faint garnet at the edges and a smallish bubbly beige head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of roast, caramel, vanilla, light wood and bourbon with a faint cardboard. Little to no hop aroma, this one seems a bit sweet based on the nose. The flavor is roasty caramel with hints of toffee, vanilla and light oak. Light fruity notes midway through with a sweet bourbon and brown sugar linger at the end of every sip. Medium body, light level of carbonation. Nice easily assessable barrel aged stout. The oxidation in the nose is a little off putting, but the beer is quite tasty.

It didnít have much of an aroma but it pours very dark with just a few brownish bubbles. I was looking forward to the variety of flavors it contained but was disappointed. The only thing that I could taste was the oaky bourbon flavor. It seemed to overpower everything else and the other flavors didnít come through. At almost $5.00 for a 12 oz bottle it wasnít worth the price. It wasnít very harsh for having such a high alcohol content but lacked in the variety of flavors I expected to taste. It isnít bad but just not nearly as good as I thought it would be.

Sweet woody bourbon, loads of roasted, charred malts and some very noticeable alcohol. Very full mouth feel with a super soft carb. The finish is quite sweet at the beginning and finished a medium bitter with a great not over powering at all bourbon, woody, vanilla finish. this is how bourbon barrel beers should be. Subtle, not massive barrel bombs.
