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.

Very dark brown beer with reddish glow on the edges. Nice bubbly yellow-beige head falling down quick. The aroma is very mild with hints of coffee (mocca), milk chocolate, babba au rhum, burnd sultanas on the crust of raisinbread, cedar wood and caramel. The taste is also very smooth, it has a mild mouthfeel that reminds me of a mix of coffee, doubble cream and sweet brown rhum. It has also a slight fruity touch of dates (dried ones) and raisins. The bitter accents are more burned ones than hoppy ones. The finale is one of caramelzed sugars, burned malts, some grapesugar and a little bit of herby hops.The alc is well hidden and this 9% beer is very drinkable indeed. Thanks joris for sharing this one.

Yellow-brown head, shortlived, over black looking beer with a lot of reddish, Cola-like highlights. Chocolate, fresh green leaves, finishing in absolute moccha/coffee; with very clearly alcohol, brandy-like, and even some higher alcohols, giving a quite complex, pleasing nose. Sweet taste with sweet chocolate flavour; rather roasted than burnt notes, a touch of fruity acidity (very restrained), and going over in rich coffee (with some coffeecream). sweet, however dominates leaving very little bitterness, and that not particulary hoppy. Retronasal some tobacco. Well bodied, smooth, grist and unfermented sugars - which is very strange seen the beer came from 19įPlato to 9A% ABV. Pleasing sweet stout (enfin... IMO), thanks to my America travelling wife.

Bottle. Pours a dark mahogany body with a creamy yellow-brown head. Interesting aroma for the most part - vanilla, oak, and caramel. Stranger flavour that is creamy, nutty, and has permeations of woody earthiness.

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.

22 oz. bottle via trade with kokostephi - Pours a brown color with a two finger light tan head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is woody (oak) and chocolate. Flavor is much of the same. Very nice. A subtle, smooth, medium to full body beer. This beer was a very pleasant suprise. Thanks Stephi.

Bottle shared with the gang at Decemberfest 2006 -- courtesy of mds. Pours a deep dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, caramel malt and some faint coffee and chocolate, also a little lactic. Flavour follows the aroma along with some sourness. Medium bodied. This wasnít what I was expecting at all based on the name of the beer and I must say I didnít love it, too bourboney for my liking. I found it just O.K.

22 oz bottle - Pours very dark brown to black with a thin head. This beer smells much like a stout with roasted malt and some chocolate notes. Thereís also a hint of vanilla. The flavor is dark roasted caramel malts with coffee and chocolate in there. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a hint of hops providing balance, Dragonís Milk goes down smoothly, the 9% abv buried under all that malt. Excellent beer.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle @ Decemberfest.
Neat color, deep brown, dark mahogany hue, tanned head and decent lacing.
Brown chocolate malts, pleasant fruity aromas. Reminds me of lightly sweetened Balk Forrest cake with hints of alcohol.
Medium bodied, perhaps a bit on thin side. Slightly creamy with bitter chocolate finish. Shallow image of aroma, Nose was so much richer and promising.(6+)

Very dark brown pour with a small, foamy, tan head. Strong aroma of oak and caramel malts with a slight sour note, some dark fruit and a bit of breadines. Strong initial oak flavor, roasted caramel malt, and dark fruit. Thereís a bit of sour character that must come from some spontaneous fermentation in the barrels. Wonderfully complex flavor. Thereís so many different flavors popping out at different times. Velvety smooth, full body. Truly one of my favorites. A great beer to sip on a cold winter day.
