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.

Great beer coming on the rebound from a bad one. Very creamy mouth. Pours near black with ruby shinethrough. Aroma is of chocolate coffee. Taste...very creamy. Hangs around the mouth with a bitterness and woody flavor. Nice bitter chocolate aftertaste.

Oh Yeah. Black with small rocky off white head. Light roast malt aroma with hints of vanilla and coffee. Nice creamy mouthfeel with big roasty, vanilla, coffee and wood flavors. Dry finish with some bourbon notes and alchohol warming. Fantastic easy drinking strong stout pushing an imperial.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Aroma of coffee, vanilla, smoke, spice and wood. Dark deep brown hue with a tan mostly diminishing head. Flavor is of smoke, spice, clove, molasses, and wood. Full bodied and oily soft. Thick and cloying. Ok but kind of an off spice flavor.

Dark black body with a small creamy tan head. Sweet roasted malt, light caramel and coffee hints. Sweet coffee, roasted malt and light creamy caramel, hints of vanilla and very faint oak. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

nimbleprop (5892) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Sampled at the Savor DC event. Pours a watery, nearly opaque black with a thin white head. Mild aroma of vanilla and oak. Flavor has more roasted malts, toast and strong whiskey. Flat and a bit oily on the palate. The beer was really good, but it was pair with Maytag blue cheese and didn’t stand up to the pairing.

jefcon (1505) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Very dark pour with reddish edges. Aromas are deep, nearly sour, with a sweet vanilla / chocolate malt smell layered on top. The palate of the beer is pretty aggressive, with some alcohol showing through. Raisins, chicory, and vanilla don’t completely mesh on the tongue. This was a miss for me, though the flavors were strong and true.

Wow. This brew poured dark black with the slightest hint of a creamy caramel head. The nose was smoky barley, and the palate..ah, the palate. Hardwoods, coffee, licorice, smoke, vanilla toward the back of the tongue, and just a bit of butterscotch. Amazing.

I really enjoyed the oak flavor, mainly because i like to eat oak trees. No, seriously the palate was 非常好喝 and i really enjoyed the coffee like aftertaste.

Easily one of the best beers I’ve had in the last year or more. Really great aroma. Flavor has more oak in it which I liked. I spent $14 for the bottle and while I think that is high it was worth it this night.
