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.

This is good but could be great. The lack of carbonation really damages this beer. Lots of vanilla roast taste. Sweet. It looks like a flat Coke. :(

At first it had a strange doc pepper taste. sliky and smooth. not very oaky though. no head. and a kind of over powering sweetness. all and all...not bad

Was unsure what to expect from this beer, and it surprised me upon the pour for two reasons: 1) it was much darker than expected, and 2) it had almost no head. First had a few huge bubbles and then it kind of fizzed when coaxed, but disappointed by the carbonation. Nose of vanilla, oak, soy sauce, bitter chocolate. Taste added more malt and caramel to the flavors on the nose. A little cloyingly sweet at first but a lovely aftertaste, with more coffee/chocolate coming out. Would rate higher if not so sweet.

Heavy malt presence, and a thick, creamy mouthfeel. Strong vanilla undertones come through in the finish. A smooth, rich ale with a lingering pleasant flavor, The bourbon made its presence felt with a slight warming effect in the finish. It wasnít as woody as I was hoping for but still quite enjoyable. I definitely recommend it.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 Light hints of mocha and caramel form a nice malt backdrop, with a little bit of vanilla, oak, whiskey, and some fruit, like grapes and prunes. Big and forceful, but slightly off aftertaste.

Wow! This beer tickled my fancy. At $16 bucks for a 22oz? I was not dissappointed. Poured a Deep Black with a light foamy, rapidly dissipating head. I definitley got a touch of wood on the aroma and a very light sambuca like licorice/anise aroma. Upon tasting it I was surprised how the aroma of the oak and licorice mellowed into a black tart cherry mixed with coffee and a hint of bakers chocolate, light smokiness but almost not worth mentioning. This beer was completely delicious, a real treat.

Pours a dark cherry-black with almost no head whatsoever, similarly absent lacing. Notes of oak, chocolate, vanilla sweetness on the nose. Bourbon warmth on the somewhat thin palate, hints of tart berries, charcoal smokiness, wooden hop profile. Finishes slightly minty, with a bitter chocolate character. Not what I was expecting or hoping for, but still nice in its own right.

A dark Malty brew with noticeable alcohol contend. Nice carbonation. Small light brown head. Aroma, sweet and malty. Fruity malty and sweet taste. A really delightful brew.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle. Dark, near black with some redness in the light. Not much visible carbonation, just some big soapy bubbles. Very smokey aroma. Some nuts, chocolate powder. Similar flavors of smoke, chocolate, and some bourbon. Sticky in the mouth. Definitely a unique beer, and outside of the appearance, itís wonderful stuff.
