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: MAY 14, 2010 ^^oaky (oak makes up probably 90% of the flavor).
occasional hints of chclt-malt sneak out, but this is the oakyest beer iíve had at 550 ratings.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a thin soapy beige head. Light wood and vanilla, smoke, bitter cocoa, roast, and a bit of sweet malt. Medium to thick bodied, smooth and silky, chocolate and a little booze. Tastes a bit like a bourbon and chocolate milkshake. Light bourbon on the finish, touch of alcohol, vanilla and roast. This was quite tasty.

Pours a very dark chestnut brown with mahogany edges when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger foamy tan head. Decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves spots of lacing behind. Chocolate malt aroma with subtle bourbon, earthy oak and vanilla. Lighter bodied tha I expected but not thin. Silky chocolate maltiness with hints of caramel and toffee. Not roasty at all. Surprising dark fruit notes including cherry, plum and raisin which provide a nice balance to the heavy malt presence. Subtle bourbon presence that isnít overpowering, letting the other flavors shine through. Earthy oakiness with a nice touch of vanilla which adds to the smoothness of the beer. This in combination with the well masked ABV make this beer pretty quaffable. Slightly dry finish.

Dragons milk is the stuff legends are made of. A big beer although lacking the hoppy goodness one of my favorites.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle poured into pint class. The aroma is caramelly and alcoholic like a bourbon. It pours almost black with a nice tan head atop it. The flavor is sweet caramel, vanilla, sweet chocolate, and bourbon. Itís like a dessert in a bottle. It lingers a little heavy on the palate, like you ate a bowl of ice cream. Very good, but 22 ounces of the stuff is a bit heavy on the stomach. Almost too sweet; could use a little bitterness.

Bottle: Pours a stunning dark brown with a finger of creamy tan head. Oak is the first part of the aroma, followed by sweet maltiness, vanilla, and bourbon. Tastes sweet with caramel and vanilla up front, finishing with a bourbon and oaked tail. Rich. Lingering bourbon is really sticking to my tongue...
