COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragon’s 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.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small head. Aroma is malty, with a solid, wonderful vanilla and caramel twist. Extremely tasty. Notes of oak, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malts. This beverage is good - but definitely a beer to share as a 22 oz is just about too much for one sitting - even as good as I found it.

Bottle poured into a sniffer produced a fingers worth of tan head that turned to lace on top of a black body Aromas of chocolate and coffee filled my nose a nice oak woodiness as well Taste the same as the nose but with slight alcohol warmth Full bodied brew not much carbonation I had this before I flew out of VA and I am glad I did it turned into a long flight. I finished the bomber by myself and was looking for more it’s a good brew

flatmatt (1289) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours deep red, approaching black, with a small light tan head that dissipates quickly. No real lacing. Very nice aroma of rich dark fruits, bitter chocolate, sweet caramel. Flavor is dark fruits and caramel, dark chocolate. A bit of lingering roasty malt. Somewhat weaker flavor than I was expecting based on the aroma. A little undercarbonated.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 Dark red/brown pour, almost no head to it. Not a strong aroma, slight coffee and toffe. Pretty malty with carmel and slight chocolate. Nice warming going down, 9% abv not offensive at all. Had some other bourbon barrel aged beers, I don’t get much in this one from oak barrel.. Reminds me of Highland Brewing’s Tasgall Ale. Not bad at all though.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours a murky, cola-brown color; khaki-colored head with decent retention and mixed-bubbled lacing. Kind of a relaxed aroma: toasty, burnt wood, hints of bourbon and scotch; some toastiness, but muddled overall. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: toasty vanilla-laden oak and light bourbon notes; milk chocolate, roasted malts, and some bitter coffee notes; very relaxed carbonation; muddled flavor notes overall, though nothing astringent or rough coming through from the barrel character; toasty, basic maltiness; a bit of alcohol showing throughout. Medium finish: coffee, bitter and milk chocolate, and some toasty breadiness; not a lot of barrel character coming through in the end.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2008
On tap at New Holland and served in a snifter. This beer poured a dark brown with a thin head of tan foam. Some slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of chocolate, wood, and some mild alcohol. The flavor consisted of bittersweet chocolate, burnt malts, some mild vanilla and oak, and also a mellow note of bourbon. The mouthfeel was full-bodied with minimal carbonation. A dangerously drinkable high-gravity brew.
