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.

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

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.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 11, 2008
Black pour with a tiny tan head. Roasted malt nose with maybe a hint of toffee. Dark and malty flavor, subtle chocolate and whiskey notes. Not bad, but a bit thin.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2008
Pours a shade of black walnut with ruby tinged edges. Very lifeless. No head. I turned the bottle completely upside down to see if I could get a rise out of this one. Zero. Roasty chocolate nose, coffee, caramel, vanilla, burnt wood, and whiffs of butterscotch candy. Flavor is cold coffee, unsweetened cocoa powder, burnt caramel, some ash and alcohol vapor. The oak barreling smoothed out the brew as it has a fairly buttery soft feel and good density, obviously more apparent on the finish as a woody character jumps to the forefront. I was expecting more however, maybe itís the name. Could be better.

I was expecting more from a beer with such a cool name. It pours a black oil color and smells of faint caramel and vanilla, but the taste is of a water down stout with a ton of alcohol on the palate. Pretty good though!

Bottle, pours a black with a light almost no tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with dark roast. Taste is roast, but does not hold a full creamy mouthfeel. Decent, kinda weird.

Draught from Sugar Maple. Dark reddish-brown with medium tan head. Sweet aroma of butterscotch and caramel. Very sweet taste of more of the same, some roasted malts along the way. A little sticky but overall I liked this one.

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. :(

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.
