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 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.

Overall I would call this a good beer but not great. I think the label combined with the anticipation of drinking this beer left me with somewhat of an unfulfilled expectation. I think one impediment of rating this beer is the temputaure at which it was served. As the beer warms it releases a richer nose profile much like walking from thru the front door of the flower shoppe and then going into the flower warehouse. As the beer warms below my nose as I type report the sweet malty tones are more and more pronounced with a delightful effect to my nasal passages. I would try this beer again but make sure that it was served at a better temp - like 65 or so. Prost! Beer:30 http://bit.ly/beer30

Probably one of the best strong ales Iíve ever tried. Pours a very dark colour and contains a mouthful of dark roasty flavours. Can really taste the bourbon on your lips but doesnít harsh you away. A great beer for after dinner!

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 bottle poured a dark red brown in color with a thin frothy dark tan head that retained well. aroma has nutty malt, caramel, bourbon, light barrel wood, and vanilla. medium light mouth feel with average carbonation. flavor has nice bourbon hits, barrel, brown malt, light hop bitterness, and some oats. nice and creamy but well malted. this really benefited from the barrel aging both in flavor and texture.

Smells malty with notes of roasted barley and chocolate malt. Pours dark, but not exceptional with thin white head. Taste is nicely balance with coffee, carmel, chocolate, and oak. Could use a little more body, but enjoyable over all.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle from Raleigh WBF. Thought I tried the oak aged version (listed separately on this site), but seems like Dragonís Milk is always oak aged so Iím rating this version. Pours a dark brown with some ruby highlights topped by a thin, creamy, tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate (perhaps more so than any other beer Iíve rated to date), Baileyís Irish Cream, bourbon, oak. Taste is similar with loads of creamy milk chocolate, a spicy bourbon alcohol bite, vanilla ice cream, and a dry, oaky finish. Really just an awesome beer.

2008 bottle; thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours dark cola brown with foamy off-white head. Nose is roast, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and oaky excellence. Flavor is decadent: chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, roast, lingering dark sweetness- borderline dark fruit with lingering vanilla. Thoroughly enjoyable medium-bodied stout.
