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.

randolphjj (116) - Raymore, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2009
great black color with ruby red in the tint. Super smooth flavor thatís really strong with the vanilla and oak. I like this one. Itís like sipping a nice cognac in a way -- like what Iíd like to sit and enjoy the way you would a cognac, without the heavy alcohol taste and a great depth of oaky flavor.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with ruby hues, fully receding tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is milky, chocolate, oak and brown malts. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with lively carbonation. Tasty, but not amazing.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - APR 26, 2009
22oz. bottle served in a snifter. Poured a dark reddish brown with a quickly dissipating head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, also a bit fruity. A bit of hops come out in the aroma as it warms. More chocolate in the flavor. Medium to full bodied. Vanilla flavors from the oak. I really got the flavor of a good English toffee from this beer. Fairly long finish with more vanilla notes from the oak. Very easy drinking for 9%.

The nose is a very nice smokey vanilla.Pours very dark with a small head. Taste is good.Smokey ,roasty, dark chocolate, and the body is a bit lighter than i would have liked. Still this is a very tasty ale.

22 oz. bottle. Got this recommended by the beer guy at my local liquor store; thought it would be a cream stout, based on the name, but am interested in an English Strong Ale (not sure Iíve ever had one). Pours a blackish color with red hints around the edges where the light catches it, and almost no head at all (whatever there was died very fast). Smells of lots of bourbon, some oak, roasted malt, and a fair bit of alcohol. Tastes of a lot of bourbon, but is much smoother than I was expecting, as the smell made me think I would be hit hard with it. Also tastes of a oakey wood flavor, that usually I only taste in an oak aged beer. There may be some vanilla at the end, but there isnít much of an alcohol bite, which is nice. Goes down fairly smooth, though I would still stay away if you canít stand bourbon. Good, and an interesting beer, but nothing overly spectactular.

RyanMM (416) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 Pours deep garnet. Minimal head, almost zero lacing. Slightly sweet, very thick, smooth on the tongue at first but then the alcohol content hits you over the head with a sledgehammer. An oakey, wood-aged sledgehammer, very reminiscent of whiskey. Ever-so-slight tones of vanilla. The flavor balance heavily favors maltiness. Couldnít drink more than one of these at a time, but definitely good every now and again.

[Tap] Dark brown, almost black in color with a faint head. Nearly opaque. Aroma was sweet and caramely with a little woody smoke accent. Taste was sweet with a lot of milky caramel. Also some vanilla (marshmellow?) and smoke with a faint bourbon-esque alcohol kick on finish. Fairly thick, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. One of my favorites.
