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.

22 oz bottle from Liquor Outlet. Brown in color with some ruby highlights, small lasting head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel/molasses, vanilla, and oak. Taste is smooth and malty, alot of molasses, touches of chocolate and tobacco, oak, vanilla and some well integrated whiskey. Some alcohol warm in the finish but very drinkable. Full bodied. Very nice.

bottle, black pour with a thin almost white head. thinking about roasting a chicken to have with this. what would chicken stuffed with shrimp be like? F it, iím gonna do it. smell the barrel very dominant in the nose. bit of roast and a lot of booze too. tatstes like cheap whiskey at first, this better get better. roast and light coffee and cocoa linger in the oakey finish. damn that lady in the stands had a hell of an upper body, good job cameraman. roasted peanuts is what comes to mind once i get past that overbearing wood and booze flavor.once i adjust to this i can really start to pick out some enjoyable flavors. i think iím going to rub the chicken with a green chile habanero dry rub, add the shrimp with a bit of leftoversalmon, bbq sauce and a bit of rice. need to get the rice going now i guess. well, rockies lose game 1. like the body in this though, just the right thick mouthfeel.

drank this last nite, so i dont have the most detailed review, but i do remember being very impressed. a very tasty oak aged ale.. the oak was not overpowering at all. great bourbon notes and flavors, balanced with a very nice ale that was not as highly malted as a lot of other strong ales. very drinkable.

Bottled@Monks Cafť Wallingatan, Stockholm. Very deep ambery brown colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is nuts, coffee, some liquorice, mild dark dry fruits as well as some slight alcoholic notes. Also mild ashy notes as it warms up. Flavour is vanilla, wood, liquorice, coffee, dark dry fruits as well as some herbal notes. Nicely balanced brew.

Bottle. Pours dark, dense brown with a frothy, pungent off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and spice. Full body, with a crisp, clean aftertaste. All around decent strong ale.

This is (Hands Down) the BEST High Gravity brew I ever tasted ! It doesnít have to be 1/2 frozen to choke it down... Itís a dark colored brew - like a stout - Smooth as Guinness with a lot more kick ! More drinkability than Bud light ! Only one bad thing to note about this brew == The price== I guess oak Aging has a price??? Definitely try this brew - I recommend it ! A+++

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Poured into pint from bomber. Oily dark brown/black pour. Slight tan head. Aroma WHOA: coffee, dark fruit/chocolate and kind of skunky. Iím not a fan of the flavor - did I get an infected bottle? The abv warms on its way down but that doesnít make up for the flavor. I guess I should have figured it out after the inside of the cap said "why".

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Bottle: Pours a deep brown with a rusty copper hue and a dense tan film of head. Toasted oaky aroma with some mildly sweet raisin notes and soft milk chocolate. Silky palate. The flavor displays some toasted malts that mesh with soft bourbon/boozy notes giving it a soft sweetness of toasted marshmallows. Tannic woody notes in the mild toasted plum middle. A decent oak aged ale that remains fairly balanced and not overly boozy.
