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.

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.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2008
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.

Bottle: First off let me preface this by saying that Iíve had this brew multiple times, draft and bottle, and finally have gotten around to rating it. Even though there is no date on the bottle, I believe this is a fresh one. This is so much more balanced than I ever remember it being. Dark brown pour with a minimal, white head. Dark roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and subtle oak aroma...not much bourbon. Medium-full bodied mouth feel, very creamy throughout. The flavor pretty much emulates the nose, again with a very subtle oak characteristic that is much more enjoyable than it has been previously. If this is where this brewís headed from now on, Iím going to buy up as much as I can.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2008
22oz bottle from Binnyís on Clark, Chicago. Dark brown with small beige head. Aroma is chocolate, some coffee, slight vanilla, nutty, some vanilla and other barrel scents as well. Flavor is a lot of red fruit, nutty, chocolate, a good amount of bourbon, coffee, not bad. Medium to thin body and well carbonated. Okay but something about this is a little off.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 big bottle. Body is pretty black, with small brown head. Aroma is a strange sort of not bitterness, but roast. The taste is actually sweet. Some chocolate and dark fruit. :::::second try: two years later, it is evident that my palate has changed. Bottle split with Pat and Big Tony. Pours a pitch black with nice small brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, marshmellows, cinnamon, and toffee. The mouthfeel is great, with notes of chocolate covered mashmellows, toffee, caramel, maple syrup and roasted malts.
