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.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Deep brown/ruby red color, good sized brownish head with some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, chocolate, vanilla and dates. Flavor is more fruity and the bourbon is not overshadowed. Big body, creamy texture. Somewhat short sweet finish. I didnít know what to expect when I bought this beer and was pleasantly surprised.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle from archerliquors. Dark brown with almost no head. Roasty slightly fruity aroma and taste with some chocolate notes and a barely perceptible hint of bourbon. I was wanting a much more robust bourbon flavor, but I suspect theyíve over-used their barrels. Disappointing overall.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle sampled at stevoís. Pours dark ruby with big tan head. The aroma is spicy with raisin and a touch of bitter chocolate. The flavor is chocolate with some berry and some interesting spiciness. Lemon and acidity come out in the finish. Decent.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours dirty brown with an aroma of corn and coffee. Flavor is tobacco ash and dry milk chocolate. Watery mouthfeel with a raw pasta aftertaste. I rated Crazy Stallion higher than this? Eh, whatever. Slay this one.

Iíve had this beer a handful of times, and it seemed a bit different each time. I canít believe Iíve not reviewed it until now! It poured a dark brown with reddish hues. It had a medium bit of head composed of tiny bubbles. Aroma was a creamy smell...like a cream soda (I guess thatís vanilla) and some chocolate. Flavor was of bourbon notes which were over-powered by vanilla. There were also watery chocolate notes (think Yoohoo). Mouthfeel was both a bit watery and a bit rough feeling, and probably the weakest element of this beer. I would recommend this beer. Iíve previously had it on tap at Romanís Pub (St. Francis, WI), I bought a bottle from Garyís (Oak Creek), and I had it most recently at Comet.

22oz. bottle; Pours dark brown,pleasant vanilla aroma,tannish head with minor lacing.Aroma of chocolate,roasted nuts,cream and a bit of licorice. Creamy and full bodied flavor, a nice combination. Small amount of malt, great roasted flavor and a small touch of alcohol at the end. A great winter beer.

TheAlum (6119) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2008
On tap at The Galway Tribes (Frankfort, IL). Poured into a tulip glass. A deep brown pour with a decent sized tan head. The aroma was strong, but more alcohol infused than the other tones of vanilla and malts I picked up. Initial taste is strong: Chocolate and malty, with a stranger than most barrel aged beer finish. More winesque than whiskey characteristics are what I picked up, but maybe a 2nd tasting is in order. Some hints of oak, smokiness, and vanilla on the finish. A nice experience and maybe a repeat buy and rerate.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2012 22oz from moejuck - thanks, Joe! Iíd been looking forward to this one, having aged it for almost a year after receiving it (I think the bottleís close to 2 years old). On a chilly night, I was in the mood for something malty, oaky, and warming. What I got was a thin, slightly hoppy, and sour-to-skunked beer with very little trace of malts or oak discernable. This isnít just one of those dark beers with dark fruits you werenít expecting; this is just a bit off. Iíve enjoyed some New Holland brews, so Iím not hopping on the hatewagon, but this is pretty disappointing. Rerate, 3/22/08: Bomber from Samís, Durham. Very little trace of sourness, and a pleasant oaked quality that compares well with Weyerbacherís Insanity. Solid brew after all.
