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.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Pours a deep dark brown, with a substantial tan head. Very nice looking brew. The aroma is slightly boozy (bourbon, mostly), with hints of wood, roast and chocolate. The flavor maintains each of these characteristics but adds a solid dose of vanilla to the mix. Maybe some molasses sweetness and a hint of coffee bitterness as well. The oak character becomes more and more apparent as the beer warms, and does a nice job of tying everything else together. Although this beer isnít really outstanding in any way, itís pretty solid all around, and the 9% will definitely do the trick if thatís what your going for.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2008
FAIL!!! Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville (I think). Cola brown pour with faint lacing and no head. Aroma of cream, coffee, chocolate and brown sugar. So far so good. Big oakiness in the taste, a hint of whisky, and definite notes of... rotting cabbage! Fairly strong too. Foul, and in a bad way. Drain pour today... Iíll re-rate next yearís batch.

Cobra (1100) - - JUN 4, 2008
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Weak pfftt when opened. Poured out a deep brown color, with red highlights around the edges. Weak, sticky head. Very little carbonation. Aromas are of oak barrels, burnt sugar, Grandmaís root cellar. Flavors are burnt sugar, dank basement, funky oak barrel. Medium mouthfeel, but thin body. OK to try...once.

swoopjones (6179) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle @ Coles Michigan Beer Tasting. Best of the night. Pours a deep cola brown. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla & oak. Taste is boozy bourbony, hints of sweeter malts, vanilla & oak woodiness. Medium bodied with slight alcohol tingle that lingers a bit. Good beer

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2008
2008-05-30. Dark brown body with a waifish tan head (3+). Boozy first impression, but the malty aroma shows some interesting nuances once you get past the alcohol. (7+) Sweetish flavour, caramel notes, mild malt throughout, very lightly astringent in the finish. (7+) Average bodied palate seems a touch light for it. Ok. Bottle, Mondial, Montreal, courtesy of Tuqueboy

On draft at Savor in DC (5/17/08). Tastes of candied sugar, almost like a belgian. The alcohol is very apparent. I wasnít too overwhelmed with this but Iím not too familiar with english strongs.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAY 30, 2008
22oz. bomber, pours a cola brown with a two finger tan head that drifts down to a whisp, minimal lacing. Aroma is initially cola-like, but then milk chocolate, dark fruits and some woodiness. Flavor is a bit thin, but there is some milk chocolate, wood and maybe molasses. Not overly complex or anything, and somewhat bland in flavor.

Great beer coming on the rebound from a bad one. Very creamy mouth. Pours near black with ruby shinethrough. Aroma is of chocolate coffee. Taste...very creamy. Hangs around the mouth with a bitterness and woody flavor. Nice bitter chocolate aftertaste.
