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.

22oz bomber, curtesy of Bartzilla. Beer 6 of the Bartzillaís Death Metal Beer Tasting 1/12/2007, consumed with many great beer drinkers including Bartzilla, Naven, as well as Lee creator of Arrogant Bastard, and a really cool guy. This is really a fantastic beer, and I canít really put my finger on the taste. A sweet malty yumminess that escapes in recollection of consuming something so damn good. I didnít really know what to expect from this beer, and it totally defied by expectations because it is really damn good and tasty.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Poured a moderately clear dark brown to black color with a thin short lived head. Aromas of vanilla predominately then cream soda, toffee, and a bit of chocolate. Flavors is very sweet up front with vanilla and toffee being the most prevalent. Some yeasty fruit character though low compared to most strong english ales I have had before. In the finish the oak and bourbon become noticeable along with a slight bitterness. Very full bodied with an enjoyable creaminess. A very good beer by any standards.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2008 Pours clear and dark red/brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is heavily malty; dark bread, grain, and rosted malts. Lightly hoppy of pine, and lightly yeasty of cherrys and oak. Flavor is well balanced and complex, roasted malts, oak, carmel. with a nice lighter average finish. Medium to full bodied, creamy and softly carbonated. Awesome!

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Bottle. Left for me at the hotel desk as a gift (among other beers) from Goldtwins, CaptainCougar, kp et al.; this site is full of incredibly cool people! Bright, pitch black pour with a frothy tan head. Fruit and chocolate aromas with notes of roasted malts and bourbon. Thick, chocolaty flavor with some sharp fruity notes. Tobacco, vanilla, toffee and alcohol. Clean dry finish.

A very drinkable beer and I shared it with no one. I was not expecting much from this beer and was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the alcohol blended with the coffee tones. The dark color appearance of the beer helped rounded out this well made beer.

Bottle shared with a bunch of folks at DougShoemakerís Decemberfest 2006 - courtesy of mds. Ruby brown colour with a wispy tan head. Aroma has lots of bourbon, roast malt, vanilla and wood. Mouthfeel is soft and silky. Flavour - bourbon, vanilla, freshly roasted coffee, and some interesting sour cherry notes, with slowly building bitterness in the finish. Quite nice stuff.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2006
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.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2006
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.
