COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragon’s 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 dark brown, much darker than expected. Aroma of vanilla and oak. Taste includes both of those, along with coffee and chocolate, and a noticeable but not overwhelming bourbon flavor. Excellent winter beer.

This is a fabulous winter beer. The vanilla and carmel flavors come through perfectly. I would like to have a lot more of this.

Smooth oak rich malt aroma. Small fleeting tan head. The flavor is a prefect blending of sweet malt, toasted malt, oak, and just the right amount of bourbon. Really a masterwork in terms of blending diverse flavors. Currently one of my favorite beers.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
It poured black and opaque with a small, quickly fading, tan head.The first impression was a mid-tongue sweetness followed by a complex mix of flavors, not all of them pleasant, that were difficult to identify inindividually. Not much carbonation. The hops come in late and I was left with a sour aftertaste.

oakbluff (427) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours very dark brown, with a rich two finger head. Nose is of licorice and wood. Taste- bourbon flavour is quite pronounced, along with the oak. Quite hoppy as well. Sweet iniitially, but that melds into more of a hotness from the booze. Finish is dry and woody. Interesting beer. Carbonation is on the low end.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
sweet malty aroma, wood, grass, hay, and bourbon. flavor pretty much the same...a very sweet beer with a hint of alcohol and the strong wood and bourbon aftertaste. a slightly acidic character to it, especially after the sweetness wears off the aftertaste, and it leaves a sour residual behind.
