COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragon’s 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.

dmac (4161) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2008
22 oz bomber shared with the Fight Night Drinking Crew supplied by broncoman, thanks Darin. Pours deep brown/black with a small off white head. Very slight aroma, only slight notes of roastiness and perhaps a touch of vanilla. Medium bodied with average carbonation that is smooth and highly drinable. Flavor is stronger then the aroma with notes of oak, roastiness, vanilla and a touch of charcoal. This beer is dark and smooth much like the guy who supplied it.

TheRealBastard (145) - The-No, California, USA - APR 22, 2008
Pours black with off-white head. Nose is roasted malt and coffee. The flavor is almost all coffee. There is some smoke and some chocolate coming through as well. This beer was decent, but nothing to get excited about. I’d recommend this.

pineypower (2527) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2008
Thanks to Darren for bringing this one to Dmac’s. Pours out black with a thin fading white head. Not much on the aroma, maybe a little sweetness and earth overall a rather weak aroma. Taste however makes up for the lack of aroma. Complex yet very smooth, nice earthy notes blend with some chocolate, roast and earthy oak flavors. Very creamy mouthfeel, and dangerously drinkable. Solid

mattmc1973 (477) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2008
Poured dark brown/black with a thin head. Smell of oak, and roasted coffee and smoke. Very stout-like in aroma and flavor, not much like an ale. Taste was lightly sweet and bitter, with creamy palate. Good beer.

sunevdj (3263) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a diminishing off-white head. Smells of caramell and toffee. Very sweet with toffee aromas. Some alcohol notes. Also hints of toasted, sugared almonds. Very full bodied. Long toasted. nutty finish. Good.

bigtaster (563) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2008
Pours very dark brown to black with a thin head. This beer smells much like a stout with roasted malt and some chocolate notes. There’s also a hint of vanilla. The flavor is dark roasted caramel malts with coffee and chocolate in there. Full bodied and creamy with enough hops so satisfy.

bleeng (1540) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2008
UPDATED: APR 16, 2011 22 oz bottle. Dark black no head. Nose is light, a bit alcoholic with a slight alcohol, bourbon nose. taste has a moderate bourbon background, with a smooth, milky, body. Overall body is a bit thin which rates this beer lower than it should be. 4/11: This seemed to have a much better flavor profile than the previous rating. Very good.

kassner (1360) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2009 Liter bottle from Three Sons after tasting held there. A really nice beer. deep port color with odors of fisch and plums and a little smoke. And yes Bourbon also. Fair carbonation and an avelanche of flavors, from pums and chocolatre and wine and sweet malt lingering long after. On draft at Magoos, really full moth with lots of chocolate and cgherrries

jrmac (330) - South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours dark brown, almost black. Adequate head. Smells like a milk stout to me. Malt, cream, a touck of chocolate. Hints of bourbon, with good malt flavor. Vanilla, coffee, and maybe a caramel note or two. Pretty good for the price, and very drinkable for the ABV.
