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.

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.

Dragons milk is the stuff legends are made of. A big beer although lacking the hoppy goodness one of my favorites.

Draft @ Food Dance. Amazing smell of roasted malts, bourbon, oak, chocolate and roasted coffee. Touch of vanilla. Very balanced, developing aroma. Flavour of roasted malts, coffee, bourbon and vanilla. Bitter and fairly sweet finish.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle poured into pint class. The aroma is caramelly and alcoholic like a bourbon. It pours almost black with a nice tan head atop it. The flavor is sweet caramel, vanilla, sweet chocolate, and bourbon. Itís like a dessert in a bottle. It lingers a little heavy on the palate, like you ate a bowl of ice cream. Very good, but 22 ounces of the stuff is a bit heavy on the stomach. Almost too sweet; could use a little bitterness.

Bottle: Pours a stunning dark brown with a finger of creamy tan head. Oak is the first part of the aroma, followed by sweet maltiness, vanilla, and bourbon. Tastes sweet with caramel and vanilla up front, finishing with a bourbon and oaked tail. Rich. Lingering bourbon is really sticking to my tongue...

Pours a deep black. Light barely comes through even when held right up to a lamp. Fragrant...roasted malt and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt toast, a little alchohol, but well hidden for the most part. Heavy mouthfeel, a little bite on the front end leads to a pleasant creamy texture. Long roasted malt and coffee finish. Gets sweeter as it warms, more milk chocolate notes. Best stout Iíve had. Great winter warmer.

22oz Bomber. Tracked down this one at Kroger of all places! I couldnít even find this at a local specialty shop. Interesting combination of malts, hops, and what taste like coconut. As described by brewer, the hints of bourbon do add a nice touch. Overall, Iím not a huge fan, but definitely worth drinking.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 iíve had this beer a few times. on the most recent occasion, on draft. the first impression was coconut, that moved to a strong whiskey aftertaste. i wont be ordering this one again. UPDATE 10-9-2010.. on tap at uptown. thin. dry canadian whiskey flavor. this beer is lacking complexity. drinkable but boring.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2009
On tap at steak house. Pours dark black with a small, creamy head. Dark tan with good lacing. Aroma is very bready. Chocolate and coffee with a strong alcohol character. Strong flavor of semi sweet chocolate. Slight hints of caramel with a strong roasted character ti finish it. Silky smooth mouth feel. Carbonation a bit prickly. A very good beer, itís a little sweet and a tad over carbonated.

Bottle shared with bro for my b-day. Pours a deep golden brown with thick head. Taste is creamy smooth and sweet. Even better on the palate with a very smooth finish. This definitely gets a spot on my favorite stouts list. Canít wait to try it again.
