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.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2008
On tap at The Galway Tribes (Frankfort, IL). Poured into a tulip glass. A deep brown pour with a decent sized tan head. The aroma was strong, but more alcohol infused than the other tones of vanilla and malts I picked up. Initial taste is strong: Chocolate and malty, with a stranger than most barrel aged beer finish. More winesque than whiskey characteristics are what I picked up, but maybe a 2nd tasting is in order. Some hints of oak, smokiness, and vanilla on the finish. A nice experience and maybe a repeat buy and rerate.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2012 22oz from moejuck - thanks, Joe! Iíd been looking forward to this one, having aged it for almost a year after receiving it (I think the bottleís close to 2 years old). On a chilly night, I was in the mood for something malty, oaky, and warming. What I got was a thin, slightly hoppy, and sour-to-skunked beer with very little trace of malts or oak discernable. This isnít just one of those dark beers with dark fruits you werenít expecting; this is just a bit off. Iíve enjoyed some New Holland brews, so Iím not hopping on the hatewagon, but this is pretty disappointing. Rerate, 3/22/08: Bomber from Samís, Durham. Very little trace of sourness, and a pleasant oaked quality that compares well with Weyerbacherís Insanity. Solid brew after all.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2007
bottled. Pours a very dark brown w/ copper accents yet really looks stout-ish. Nose is weak but of sweet malt. First few sips are really complex but this soon breaks down to sweet malts w/ vanilla & alcohol profile. Almost has a milk stout quality, & very hard to believe this was barrel aged, but wow! Very smooth; plain & simple.

I got some of this from dra19 and from acertain, so to whichever one of you whose bottle I opened tonight I thank you! The pour was super dark brown with lighter brown hightlights on the edges. A tan, one-finger tall head popped up and provided a bit of lacing. The aroma was vanilla, cinnamon and booze. A pleasant whiskey barrel booze mind you, but itís right there, not hiding from anyone. The flavor is chocolate and smoke initially with the whiskey and vanilla coming in on the backside. A mild and easy drinking mouthfeel. A great winter warmer. This beer is missing just the tiniest bit of something that would make it a world-class brew. With a touch more piney/floral hops this would be...well...a big old IS I suppose.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Dark brown with creamy head. So drinkable you can almost take out the strong part of an english strong ale. Medium malty body. Slightly sweet and a slight hop finish.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Slightly hazy dark brown with a dense, creamy, beige and lacing head. Fat aroma of malt, fruit and dried fruits. Medium body with notes of dried fruit - raisins in particular. Lightly sweet yet with a somewhat dry and hoppy finish. Unusual. 201107

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2007
1 pt 6 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown and with a reddish hue and a diminished light brown head. Mild/smooth chocolate to liqourice blended aroma and with a slight roasted note. Flavour holds a mild warming alcohol feel, a slight burning roasted malt note and a smooth chocolate note. Finish has the same in a continued fashion. Quite nice but not really great.
