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.

Bomber from my beer store. Wow! Aggressive pour, black-brown in color with thin tan head. Burying my nose in my glass aromas of bourbon, roasted malt, vanilla, and coffee smack me in the face. First sip is Wow! Bourbon/alcohol flavor up front, molasses, cocoa, malt, vanilla, a lot going on in this one. The flavor evolves as the beer warms, more notes of coffee and alcohol is less pronounced. Medium body, strong and warm. Perfect for dark cold nights. One of the best beers Iíve had in a while.

On tap at Stub and Herbs. Pour is nice: black body, minimal head with decent lacing. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, molasses. Flavor is bittersweet which is very nice. Palate is creamy but has a slight metallic finish. Solid beer overall.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 Bottle. Pour was dark brown, maybe red as well. Bourbon was great, not overpowering. Flavors of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate coffee. Very well balanced even with it being 9%. Enjoyable brew that I would recommend.

I rank it high because I love it! Perfect weight and smoothness on the tongue. The flavor is ever evolving with maple, coffee, cocoa, molasses, bourbon, vanilla, and musky undertones. It kind of make me want to sit in the woods on a dank November day. I like it served at room temp. Chill down to far and the mouthfeel doesnít bloom and the flavors hide. I do have to wonder how this will cellar......

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2009
22 oz bomber from Princetonís. Black in color but not very thick and little thin head. Aroma is boozy with the oak and bourbon coming out very prominently. The mouthfeel is much thinner than I expected but the flavors are definitely rich and full. Again the oak and bourbon are present with the vanilla coming through slightly on the finish.

Dark brown pour, thin tan head. Bourbon, sweet roasted dark malt, a bit of oak and vanilla. Mostly bourbon.. itís kind of simple. The mouthfeel is to thin.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2009
12oz bottle from armanettiís... pours a dark brown, cola-like, with a thin soapy light beige head... Aroma of roasted malt, cola, dark fruit, vanilla, and light bourbon. Quite a lot going on in a good way... Flavors were an intermingling of the aforementioned scents without anything being too assertive than the rest. Moderately sweet all around with nice barrel notes. †Finishes off with some bitterness. Somewhat lively carbonated with a creamy mouthfeel.

Loved it. Dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon. Flavor is similar with wood coming through. Very smooth finish. My first thought was whoa, this is gonna be good.

Arayaga2 (2048) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2009 Brown opaque, and pours as if still, but forms a nice cocoa colored head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, englishy malt, and raisins. Taste is very chocolate milky, with smooth malt, bourbon, oak and vanilla. Reminds me of Weyerbacher Insanity with more chocolate and less bourbon. $10/22oz
