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.

Aroma of coffee, vanilla, smoke, spice and wood. Dark deep brown hue with a tan mostly diminishing head. Flavor is of smoke, spice, clove, molasses, and wood. Full bodied and oily soft. Thick and cloying. Ok but kind of an off spice flavor.

Dark black body with a small creamy tan head. Sweet roasted malt, light caramel and coffee hints. Sweet coffee, roasted malt and light creamy caramel, hints of vanilla and very faint oak. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

nimbleprop (5469) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Sampled at the Savor DC event. Pours a watery, nearly opaque black with a thin white head. Mild aroma of vanilla and oak. Flavor has more roasted malts, toast and strong whiskey. Flat and a bit oily on the palate. The beer was really good, but it was pair with Maytag blue cheese and didnít stand up to the pairing.

jefcon (1459) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Very dark pour with reddish edges. Aromas are deep, nearly sour, with a sweet vanilla / chocolate malt smell layered on top. The palate of the beer is pretty aggressive, with some alcohol showing through. Raisins, chicory, and vanilla donít completely mesh on the tongue. This was a miss for me, though the flavors were strong and true.

Wow. This brew poured dark black with the slightest hint of a creamy caramel head. The nose was smoky barley, and the palate..ah, the palate. Hardwoods, coffee, licorice, smoke, vanilla toward the back of the tongue, and just a bit of butterscotch. Amazing.

I really enjoyed the oak flavor, mainly because i like to eat oak trees. No, seriously the palate was 非常好喝 and i really enjoyed the coffee like aftertaste.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Easily one of the best beers Iíve had in the last year or more. Really great aroma. Flavor has more oak in it which I liked. I spent $14 for the bottle and while I think that is high it was worth it this night.

22oz. bottle poured in a Duvel glass. Very dark in color with an oaky aroma. Silky smooth on the tongue. Coffee-like aftertaste.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2008
Pours a dark brown color with a very thin head. Mostly just film. Some bourbon in the aroma but it really just sits on top of what is essentially a strong porter with loads of roasty malt. All I get from the flavor are generic strong porter notes with just enough bourbon and oak to make this beer stand out a step from the crowd. Perfectly adequate.

Pours dark black body with no head. Smells and taste delicious, reminds me of the forest.
