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.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2011 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma was malty, toasty and had a bit of vanilla. The flavor was sour, malty and toasty with a long toasty vanilla finish. The body was moderately thick and creamy.

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized creamy tan head that faded quickly. The aroma was sweet and bitter with light roasty malts and a moderate note of vanilla. The flavor was strong vanilla, roasty malts, bitter, tangy and vaguely fruity. Complex but a bit odd. The finish was roasty vanilla. The body was moderately creamy. Interesting.

12oz. bottle, pours dark brown, the oak is evident in the aroma, vanilla and dark fruit to follow, good mouthfeel and carbonation, smooth, small amount of caramel, finish is smooth, lingering oak, dark fruit on the palate. A very enjoyable oak aged beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 [Bottle from early 08 opened 4.9.09] Pours a dark murky dull brown with a small frothy beige bubbly head. Aroma of oxidized malts, overripe dark fruit, burnt molasses, a bit grainy. Flavor is quite dull and bitter, gentle sweet, oxidized malts, raisins, hay, milk chocolate, bourbon and cream. Medium/full creamy mouthful with zero carbonation. 6.3.6.3.12 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .[ rerate Dragons Milk 8.5% 3.23.10] Okay, so I kind let my other bottle go to #$*&, lesson learned. Fresh 12ozer to get a real feel for this beer. Already I can tell this is going to be much better. Pours a somewhat clear very dark brown with a small fizzy frothy tan head. Aroma is strong of raisins and gorgeous strong oak, seemingly bourbon, distinct warming alcohol note, a really nice amount of vanilla , maybe a touch of vegetable. Flavor follows exactly, really well done, raisins, oak, plenty of vanilla but not in a overpowering Founders way, the malt flavors are all subtly melded together but the beer tastes very fresh, neat trick. similar to the haagandaz rum-raisin ice cream, rich vanilla and raisins with an alcohol kick. The only downside is that the stwed vegetable note is also present in the flavor, I suppose that is one of the reasons it didnít age very well. Medium/full bodied, oily with sparse fizzy carbonation. I remember my bad bottle being full of charr and was just not good. Actually this reminds me of unfiltered Sake a lot in both aroma and flavor. 7.5 / 4 /7.5 / 4 / 15

We were initially mistaken in thinking that this was a stout. Our mistake, nonetheless, we were very impressed with the overall quality and taste. Easy to drink with hints of toffee and oak. A definite favorite in my minimal collection.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, no carbonation. Aroma is complex and of cocoa, vanilla, coconut, earth and wood. Flavor is abrasively sweet, as if lactose was added to the grist (I can only assume from the name). Becomes repulsive as it warms. Body is thick and creamy. Either this has lactose in it or bottle conditioning stalled.
