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.

Had some on tap at Mad Mex, and damn if it wasnít better than I remembered! Brown pour with a tan head. Huge aroma of bourbon, vanilla, bready malt, wood, and a bit of smoke. The flavor was definetly a smooth bourbon and sweet malt maybe with a tinge of bitterness torwards the end throught the finish which also brings out more vanilla. Creamy with a soft carbonation over the tounge with a warming boozey finish. Pretty damn good stuff.

Dark chestnut body topped by a generous tan head. Rings and splotches of lace adorn the glass as the head eventually subsides. Aroma has malty caramel accented by vanilla. Hints of bourbon and smoky charcoal add complexity. Creamy and smooth, well carbonated. Hop bitterness is solid, but vague, balancing the caramel maltiness well. The oak imparts a prominent vanilla character which is nicely accented by the bourbon and smoky charcoal. The 9% abv is barely noticed. Very nice!

Let me start this off by saying everyone i talked to, spoke of dragonís milk as if it were the key to eternal life. I was not impressed. Looking back, and having sampled again, this time more for personal tasting, i found it better. Inviting chestnut color. Strong malty aroma, very sweet. Definite caramel flavors. Very little hop aroma. Flavorwise, very malty, with some late hop bitterness, but mostly very malty. Could certainly taste the oak from the aging also. Its a fine beer, i donít know about value though, not for 8 bucks a 22 oz.

Draft at the Durham World Beer Festival. Mahogany with a small white head. Huge malty nose to match the huge malty flavor. Oaky notes throughout, light bourbon, some vanilla.

This was good stuff, pretty sure this was my first oak aged beer. Pours dark brown with a creamy head. Tart little nutty flavor comming out with alcohol present. I liked the style and will try it agian.

Great use of barrel aging. Poured a dark brown with a white head, chocolate aroma, smooth body flavor, great hints of sweetness, vanilla chocolate, bourbon and oak.

[GABF, Denver Co - 2006] Dark brown in color almost like a stout. This had a lot of strong flavors and the alcohol was very high. This was a very good brew. Strong Oak presence and a great dry finish.

12 oz bottle, via BBB63. Pours a very dark brown with the slightest bit of light passing through the edges. The head is creamy and thick with great retention and left nice lacing. I can smell the oak and vanilla from a foot away. Some alcohol, sweet toffee and caramel maltiness, figs, dates, and marshmellow. Quite deep and complex. Flavor wise, itís a little thin, moderately sour, and acidic on the finish. The oak is quite apparent, yet the alcohol isnít at all. Malty sweetness is overtaken by the sour and thus leaves it pretty one dimensional. Mouthfeel is quite thin and fairly watery in texture with soft moderately active carbonation. This looked and smelled really good, but I think that there may be some type of infection taking over and killing this beer.

Deep dark, almost black, brown pour. very thin tan head that disappears fast. Sweet malty aroma, there some caramel in there. This is a very creamy, easy to enjoy beer. Finish is a bit on the long side, not clean, but very enjoyable. Good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Pours a dark brown like coca-cola with a short lived dark tan head. Sweet caramel toffee aroma with pretty much the same taste. A bit of alchohol and roast taste in there for good measure. Mouthfeel is butter creamy. Reminds me of 3F Rober the Bruce a bit, but without the hop bomb. A nice change of pace!
