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.

Sampled at the bockyhorsey tasting. Appears super dark brown with no head. Aroma is butterscotch/diacetyl and bourbon. Little hints of roast in the background. Taste is roasty (surprised me a bit based on the aroma) as well as airy and thin. A clean beer with some roast and alcohol that accumulate on the palate, but never really appears in the taste. A bit disappointing.

Location: 22 oz Bottle from Normís

Aroma: The nose makes you think of a bourbon stout, and thats kinda what it tastes like.
Appearance: Poor is almost black, thin head.
Flavor: Lots of flavors melded together: oak, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and malt.
Overall Impression: I give them high marks for the creative and meshing of flavors, but I didnít love it the way most others seem to have.

Nice aroma of chocolate, wood, vanilla, a touch of coconut, bourbon, and sweet darker malts. Pours a dark brownish color with a thin bubbly head and some reddish undertones. Nice sweet dark malts, chocolate, light bourbon and oak, and nice vanilla sweetness. Lightly carbonated, and seemingly a little thin. I enjoyed the sweetness and BA characteristics of this one.

The aroma is toasted with milk, vanilla, wood, chocolate, and molasses. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma but is rather weak. The palate is rather thin. Overall itís too washed out for my liking.

solid. has got some real good flavors of dark malts, lots of chocolate and coffee. slightly thin for the style but with a touch of vanilla and wood, this makes a great beer for the drinker.

Bottle sort of thanks to Timmy300. Pours a deep brown, almost black. Nose is rich and syrupy with the vanilla definitely coming through. 4mths on oak will definitely do that to a beer. I got a lot of roastiness from the malts as well as a distinct bitterness. Nice full body. Tasty stuff.

Shared a 22 oz. with a friend. Dark, dark crimson brown with small tan head. Aromas consist of oak, strong bourbon, roasted caramel malts, and a drift of something similar to maple. Flavor is a complex blend of roasted malts, woody bourbon, vanilla with some sweetness and a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. Medium-heavy smooth mouth feel, kind of sweet but also dry. This is a complex and strong beer. Very impressionable and highly recommended.

Whiskey aroma, black in color with not much head, roasted malts and whiskey flavor balanced decently with vanilla... Whiskey flavor lingers on the palate long after sipping... Not a huge fan, but a decent beer nonetheless...

I am not too terribly impressed with this beer. It was WAY too much vanilla flavor for me!
