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.

Rated 1/5/07: Well blended ale, this one is smooth and delicious. Pours dark like a stout with a creamy off white head, nice lacing and retention. Aroma is a light mix of coffee, mild chocolate, and some caramel. Rich and ever so smooth mouthfeel, this one has a soft finish that is remarkable. Flavor is exceptional nice mix here of lightly roasted malt with bitter coffee and milk chocolate. After a while I could taste a nice helping of vanilla along with some very mild hops. There is barely a hint of the high abv which helps to make this smooth and drinkable. What a nice treat indeed.

On tap at Muddy Pig. Yuuuuum. I would put this on my cereal if i at the stuff. Very rich, creamy and smooth. I dont think i have had this style before, i would have thought it was a mix of porter and stout. Verrry good stuff.

Courtesy of Kevster. Thanks, Kevin. Big oak aroma followed by chocolate malt, caramel, cooked brown sugar and hints of vanilla. Very nice. The body is dark brown with a wispy tan head. Fairly toasty/roasty flavor profile with lots of chocolate, vanilla, oak, coconut and caramel. Comes off very strong porterish. Tasty!

Yet another awesome bomber brought by the Kevster, Thanks again.

It has a dark brown pour and little in the way of a head. The aroma is sweet with caramelized malts, pine hop sweetness, lactose, caramel candy and alcohol. For the taste a bit of alcohol hits first then sweet malts, caramelized malts, sizable pine hop bitterness, roasted malts and hints of lactose all round out the flavor. The finish has a growing alcohol sense but not in a hot way at all. Along with that I get roasted maltiness and hints of dark fruitiness well into the finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost opaque with a large light tan frothy head. This beer screams "drink me!" So, I obeyed and drank it... you know... just to shut it up. Well, let me tell you something--it shut me up! Deep dark earthy and oakey tones dominate. Walnut tones hint at a sweet nuttiness. Then of course, there is the roasted carmel malt, coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. Finallly, a hint of bourbon adds to all this complexity. Lot going on here! One of the best English Strong Ales out there. Highly recommended!!!

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Thanks to Kevin for sharing this treat. Pours a brown body, some red highlights. Smells and looks like a stout, not a strong ale. Aromas of cocoa, wood, malt, nuts. Flavor is dominated by the oak notes, with some nice roastiness as well. Really tastes like a sweet stout due to the finish, with is slightly dry and medium in length. A surprise for me, my favorite of the tasting session.

12 oz. bottle from 2004 cellared. Poured nicely with a few floaties. Spectacular fruity, sour aroma. Taste is tart with definite oak barrel notes and a burnt flavor in the background. I’d like to compare it to a recent boltting to taste the difference.

Bomber. Poured a clear, deep chestnut brown with a fizzy cap of beige head. Aroma began with an intriguing blend of soft bourbon and freshly-toasted oak... warm semi-sweet chocolate waves follow leaving offshoots of vanilla.. really enjoyed it. The flavor began with tingly bourbon and bitter herbal notes.. transitioning to grainy chocolate and vanilla on the sweet middle... warm bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and oak round out the finish... tasty, but had a couple moments of artificial vanilla and some sharper points that detracted from the flow. Medium-bodied with a decent flow. This was some good stuff!
