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.

First bottle dead flat. Second bottle a little better. No head on top of a strikingly black body. Full and rich in the mouth, but again dead. Nose of malts and berries. Taste of dark malts, coffee, and sweet fruit. But after two dead bottles Iím giving up on this one.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Black. Huge, dense, explosive tan cap. Unexpected. Infection? Nose - roasty malt, vinous - almost vinegar, dried dark fruit, vanilla, subtle oak, growing bourbon presence as it warms. Flavor- big vinegar twang, ripe dark fruits, chocolate, roasty malt, bourbon, oak, vanilla, wet wood, very light smokiness. Tangy, bitter, roasty aftertaste. Medium/full body, balanced. I canít get passed the twang. Could be infected, oxidized, or both. The rest of the beer is very good, but taking a back seat. Iíll wait for room temperature. Almost there. Same flavors with much less vinegar. Much better at room temp.

In the bomber bottle at the Max & Joeís Tavern Michigan Beer tasting (11/21/6). A very dark, dark brown. No head at all. Has the aroma of horhound candy, vanilla and coffee. Dum Dum candy flavors. Tastes very stout-like. Rich caramel and chocolate. Thick and delicious. The finish is roasted coffee. Has a mild hint of bourbon. The alcohol is well hidden in this beer by the strong sweetness. Yum.

Had this one bottled from the Binnyís Oktoberfest beertasting in St. Charles, Illinois. Very prounounced maltiness and alcoholic nose. Balanced, with a very generous amount of bourbon throughout. Nice finish. Good.

New Holland Dragonís Milk pours an opaque dark brown color. It looks nearly black in the glass with a tan head. It has a roasted malt aroma with a hint of charred wood. The flavor is rich malt and cocoa with some vanilla and bourbon sneaking around in there as well. The finish is smooth and creamy and the alcohol content is nearly invisible! Toward the end there is a nice bitterness that transitions to a dry coffee-like flavor. Very nice. This beer has a medium to full body and is mildly carbonated. The barrel aging is noticeable without overpowering the other flavors in this brew. There is definitely a level of complexity in this beer that makes it interesting and worth trying... 22 oz bottle, $6.99+tax from Riverís Bend.

GABF 2006. Ruddy brown. Nose is oak, some vanilla, bourbon and sweet malts. Taste is more oak and bourbon with some vanilla, creamy, sweet malts, faded caramel, and hints of cocoa. Body is medium with mild carbonation. Finishes with more wood, bourbon, hints of vanilla, and creamy malts.

Ok. Dark pur, nice head. A little smokiness and oak, some malts. Not exactly what I expected. A little watery. But not bad. Would try again, but expected something bolder with a name like this.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 I havenít drank bourbon for 30 years---but I immediately picked up the sour burbon smell and flavor. Add a black/red color and some nice roasted malt flavors and you have a winner!
