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.

On tap at Town Hall. Small glass appears black with brown highlights with a small sustaining head. The aroma is malty and woody. The flavor is solid sweet malt with a yeast component, wood, vanilla, and peat to keep it balanced. The body is super smooth. This is awesome.

On tap at Map Room. Nice flavor, but overwhelmed by the alcohol. I just couldnít enjoy this beer-- I wish they could hide the alcohol a touch more to let the beer flavors come through.

Decent. I could have used more flavor - underwhelming. The coffee, chocolate and oak notes were lost on me. Besides the thinness, a good drink.

Mmmm, this one is tasty! Pours a dark mahogany color with a small, bubbly tan head. Minimal traces of lacing noted. The nose reveals bourbon kissed chocolate and mocha, with maple covered pecans and alot of oaky vanilla. The bourbon fumes are just enough to let you know its there. The flavor follows suit, with subtle bourbon pervasive throughout the malty, chocolaty, coffee goodness. A mild, earthy hop character adds balance. The vanilla component is such that it leads me to believe new American oak was used, as the woodsy character is similar to what a bold Napa Chardonnay might employ. Medium bodied and smooth, this one drinks easy for 9% ABV and shows no alcohol burn on the way down. This reminds me of Barley Johnsí Dark Knight, though much more tame in its use of the barrel. Great brew! Iíll be seeking out more for sure.

The pour is very dark brown with a little cream colored head. The nose is very enticing, lots of vanilla, butter, and oak,and quite vinous. The flavor is good, but doesnít live up nose. A fairly good strong ale.

Very dark. Pourse with a nice tan head and leaves a big eye of lace. Smells and tastes of vanilla and chocolate. Nice and creamy, heavy in the mouth. I wasnít sure what to expect when I purchased this, but Iím glad I did. Iíd definately drink this again.

Michigan Wintr beer festival 08. Had two different vintages. One the most recent, the other a 2005! The 2005 is a very different beer, so that goes in parenthesis where the two beers differ. Dark brown with little head. Subtle sweetness. Fruity oaky smells. (The nose is a bit sharper and fruitier on the 2005). Small bubbles and a subtle body to it. The nose predicts the flavor well. A bit of oaky sweetness. Dark malt. Vanilla sort of bourbon is less dominant than I remember previously (Some odd Jolly Pumpkin like bite inhabits the 2005, yummy!). This works. A big clean beer. The score is this higher for the 2005 version.. the other deserves a bit of a bump down, .2 points maybe.

Extreme Beer Fest 2/15/08: Hmm, this tasted like a stout to me. I also tasted coffee, raisins, and prunes. There was a background sweetness in the taste. Enjoyable.
