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.

22 oz bottle. Pours deep red, approaching black, with a small light tan head that dissipates quickly. No real lacing. Very nice aroma of rich dark fruits, bitter chocolate, sweet caramel. Flavor is dark fruits and caramel, dark chocolate. A bit of lingering roasty malt. Somewhat weaker flavor than I was expecting based on the aroma. A little undercarbonated.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 Dark red/brown pour, almost no head to it. Not a strong aroma, slight coffee and toffe. Pretty malty with carmel and slight chocolate. Nice warming going down, 9% abv not offensive at all. Had some other bourbon barrel aged beers, I donít get much in this one from oak barrel.. Reminds me of Highland Brewingís Tasgall Ale. Not bad at all though.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours a murky, cola-brown color; khaki-colored head with decent retention and mixed-bubbled lacing. Kind of a relaxed aroma: toasty, burnt wood, hints of bourbon and scotch; some toastiness, but muddled overall. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: toasty vanilla-laden oak and light bourbon notes; milk chocolate, roasted malts, and some bitter coffee notes; very relaxed carbonation; muddled flavor notes overall, though nothing astringent or rough coming through from the barrel character; toasty, basic maltiness; a bit of alcohol showing throughout. Medium finish: coffee, bitter and milk chocolate, and some toasty breadiness; not a lot of barrel character coming through in the end.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2008
On tap at New Holland and served in a snifter. This beer poured a dark brown with a thin head of tan foam. Some slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of chocolate, wood, and some mild alcohol. The flavor consisted of bittersweet chocolate, burnt malts, some mild vanilla and oak, and also a mellow note of bourbon. The mouthfeel was full-bodied with minimal carbonation. A dangerously drinkable high-gravity brew.

Poured opaque dark brown with no head, no lacing no carbonation. Primary flavor was from the oak aging. Perhaps the barrel aging is not my thing. To me this tasted like bad burbon whiskey.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle. Poured a dark, purplish brown color with a nice brown head and strong lacing. Aroma was very pleasant, with a nice blend of roasted malts and oak. Mouthfeel was okay. Flavor wasnít as bold as I had expected, especially for the ABV. Hints of chocolate, oak, alcohol, toffee, and coffee. This was a nice big offering from New Holland.

wmubronco1992 (674) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2008
22 ounce bottle. Pours a dark black. Creamy tan head with ok lacing. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, coffee and licorice. Tastes of chocolate and coffee. Very creamy feel. This is a big beer and is is deserving of special occasions. More of a fall/winter beer. Very complex flavors so glad I was drinking from the big bottle. Has a good kick to it. Overall very good beer - will have to revisit during the cold weather season.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Assertive aroma of dark fruit, oak, and roasted malt. Stout-like in color with a beautiful khaki head. Flavor is a bit sweet for me but warms the belly nicely. Thin body improves the drinkability. Thanks to polomagnifico for the bottle!!!

Wow! This beer is delicious. A good cold day beer, not heavy and hot but it is soothing and warming to the stomach. Great flavors and a finish. Excellent on tap and in bottle.
