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.

12oz bottle from Orland Park Binnyís. Pours dark reddish brown with tan head. Aromas of oak, roasted malt, vanilla, and chocolate. Flavors of booze, oak, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malts. Not a big enough stout to hold up to the barrel as oak and booze dominate the flavor of the beer. First RIS stout that I could see through is a while. Expected more.

DialSquare (4238) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bomber. The first of several brews my wonderful wife got me for Christmas from beergeek.biz - dark blackish pour with a thin beige head that leaves a ring. Minimal lacing. Woody caramel malt aroma with hints of vanilla, smoke and alcohol. The taste is the same: sweet vanilla, wood, caramel, smoke with an alcohol finish. Slick medium texture. Definitely a sipper.

Dark brown color, small beige head. Strong vanilla, some chocolate and licorice. Sweet milk chocolate, oak, licorice, lots of vanilla. Active carbonation. Balanced, feels less alcoholic than 8.5%.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2010 ^^oaky (oak makes up probably 90% of the flavor).
occasional hints of chclt-malt sneak out, but this is the oakyest beer iíve had at 550 ratings.
cloying and overdone.

Bottle courtesy of thirdeye11. Dark brown to reddish pour. Nice chocolate smell with the spice of higher ABV. Cocoa flavoring with a slight tingle. Woody finish, very woody. I like this.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a thin soapy beige head. Light wood and vanilla, smoke, bitter cocoa, roast, and a bit of sweet malt. Medium to thick bodied, smooth and silky, chocolate and a little booze. Tastes a bit like a bourbon and chocolate milkshake. Light bourbon on the finish, touch of alcohol, vanilla and roast. This was quite tasty.

Pours a very dark chestnut brown with mahogany edges when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger foamy tan head. Decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves spots of lacing behind. Chocolate malt aroma with subtle bourbon, earthy oak and vanilla. Lighter bodied tha I expected but not thin. Silky chocolate maltiness with hints of caramel and toffee. Not roasty at all. Surprising dark fruit notes including cherry, plum and raisin which provide a nice balance to the heavy malt presence. Subtle bourbon presence that isnít overpowering, letting the other flavors shine through. Earthy oakiness with a nice touch of vanilla which adds to the smoothness of the beer. This in combination with the well masked ABV make this beer pretty quaffable. Slightly dry finish.
