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.

22oz. Poured close to black with a big tan head. Aroma is pretty huge, loads of raisin, butterscotch and mocha. Taste is similar, throwing in some wine-like dark fruit and vanilla from the oak. This is definitely unusual, or unique, and it sat well with me. It has the intensity and complexity of flavors of an imperial stout with some decent carbonation but without the heavy body or viscosity to drag you down. I can see this being an imperial stout drinkerís summer beer.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 Dynamite--sweet and bitter at once--what a bold, sensuous beer! I am especially fond of the fig, walnut, and bourbon flavors. It is warming, but not hot, and it is not particularly heavy. I had it on draught on a hot day, seated outside, and it was just fine.

Courtesy Dragonstout. This one poured a deep brown color with a small tan head that left minimal lacing behind. The aroma is of dark chocolate, bourbon, roasted malts, and some oaky smells as well. The flavor is much the same with the chocolate and roasted malts up front with some hop bitterness on the backend. The vanilla and oak flavors add balance and depth. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy that is easy drinking with a dry, warming finish from the oak and alcohol. This one is really well done, and I hope to try it again.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown color. Thin, light tan head. Fades very quickly. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, coffee. Thin body, but not lacking for flavor. Nice balance of vanilla, dark fruits, some coffee cake. Smooth, creamy finish with tons of boozy alcohol. Nice beer, very easy to drink.

Dark brown in colour, lingering brown coloured head, good lacing. The aroma is of toffee, fruit, quite sweet, chocolate, biscuits and alcohol. The flavour has some vanilla, chocolate, rich toffee cookies, alcohol and dark fruits. Alcoholic and rather sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes thin leaving the alcohol to become more pronounced.

Too much alcohol heat came through in this for my liking. I grew tired of it rather quickly.

650ml bottle obtained in a trade with TheCheeseMan, thanks Dan.

Pours with a dark reddish-black color with a small head. Aroma is caramel and coffee, the flavor is the same with a hint of vanilla. Full body is dry and somewhat carbonated on the tongue.

scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours nearly black, but a slight reddish hue barely makes its way through. With a head that disappears almost as soon as it forms. Smell is dark fruits, some sweet notes and a touch of chocolate that I can just make out. Taste is silky smooth in the mouth. The initial taste I get is the oak, then the sweet flavors and the dark fruits linger at the end. Good mouthfeel and decent taste.

nearbeer (4156) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2008
650 ml that says 8.5% abv (not 9). Nearly opaque chocolate with a quarter-inch head that fades to a lasting spit of a halo. Aroma of figs, caramel, and chocolate bread pudding. Complex flavors of earthy caramel, chocolate, smoke, vanilla, charred wood, raisins, oak, whiskey, a hint of bitter and metallic herb, slight acidic sourness and portwine. Medium-heavy body is smooth, dry, slightly tingly, and just watery enough to be dangerously drinkable.
