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.

Amazing smell of vanilla, spice, alcohol towards scotch, some toffee and wood. Itís pretty amazing how much this smells like old curmudgeon from founders. Mouthfeel leaves me wanting more weight to substantiate all thatís going on here, it is literally watery and fizzy. Flavor is a big drop off from the smell. It seems like the beer loses a lot of complexity in the transition from smell to taste. The flavors is of alcohol, scotch ( For some reason I donít get bourbon ) and charred barrel but no hop presence to balance it out and no malt trace to support the whole thing. This beer is wicked aggresive but lacking in a very fundemental way. Wierd. Sorry New Holland. 2009 22 oz.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma is vanilla, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, and dark fruit. Flavor is bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, end dry. A bit more sweetness and body would make this killer.

Cette biŤre, de couleur noire-rouge‚tre, se trouve ŗ mi-chemin entre une english strong ale et une milk stout. Elle offre des arŰmes de vanille et de noix de coco. En bouche, elle est douce et moelleuse et offre, en finale, des saveurs prononcťes de noix de coco, de vanille et díalcool. Bonne biŤre complexe.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2009 On tap at Coasters. Cola-like pour with virtually no head. Aroma of smoke, bourbon, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavor is very interesting; some grape flavor upfront with hints of vanilla and oak on the finish. Virtually no alcohol taste present. An excellent beer. (I have had this in the bottle before and on tap several times. This is a completely different beer, and much better, on tap.)...Just looked through my statistics and noticed this has been moved to the stout category. While hard to categorize, this is no stout.

The tastes combine to create a lasting impression though a smooth warming sensation. Very good beer.

22oz bottle shared by TheCaptain. Thanks Mark. Very dark ruby red color with a creamy beige head. Huge gusts of oak and vanilla waft up from the glass. The taste has the aforementioned oak and vanilla along with some toffee and bourbon. Nicely balanced.
