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.

nearbeer (4383) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2008
650 ml that says 8.5% abv (not 9). Nearly opaque chocolate with a quarter-inch head that fades to a lasting spit of a halo. Aroma of figs, caramel, and chocolate bread pudding. Complex flavors of earthy caramel, chocolate, smoke, vanilla, charred wood, raisins, oak, whiskey, a hint of bitter and metallic herb, slight acidic sourness and portwine. Medium-heavy body is smooth, dry, slightly tingly, and just watery enough to be dangerously drinkable.

dolemite77 (184) - Maryville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Pours a dark brown (not quite opaque, but damn close)--- zero head. Aroma is nice, but just a bit weak. I expected more of a kick from a brew this aged. Flavor is raisins, with a good bit of vanilla (likely from the barrel). Started out a bit watery, but as it warmed, seemed to "thicken" up and have the character I expected. There are bourbon notes throughout and the alcohol remains present. No hops to really speak of. Good stuff, just nothing that knocked me over.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Pours a deep dark brown, with a substantial tan head. Very nice looking brew. The aroma is slightly boozy (bourbon, mostly), with hints of wood, roast and chocolate. The flavor maintains each of these characteristics but adds a solid dose of vanilla to the mix. Maybe some molasses sweetness and a hint of coffee bitterness as well. The oak character becomes more and more apparent as the beer warms, and does a nice job of tying everything else together. Although this beer isnít really outstanding in any way, itís pretty solid all around, and the 9% will definitely do the trick if thatís what your going for.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2008
FAIL!!! Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville (I think). Cola brown pour with faint lacing and no head. Aroma of cream, coffee, chocolate and brown sugar. So far so good. Big oakiness in the taste, a hint of whisky, and definite notes of... rotting cabbage! Fairly strong too. Foul, and in a bad way. Drain pour today... Iíll re-rate next yearís batch.

Cobra (1100) - - JUN 4, 2008
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Weak pfftt when opened. Poured out a deep brown color, with red highlights around the edges. Weak, sticky head. Very little carbonation. Aromas are of oak barrels, burnt sugar, Grandmaís root cellar. Flavors are burnt sugar, dank basement, funky oak barrel. Medium mouthfeel, but thin body. OK to try...once.

swoopjones (7013) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle @ Coles Michigan Beer Tasting. Best of the night. Pours a deep cola brown. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla & oak. Taste is boozy bourbony, hints of sweeter malts, vanilla & oak woodiness. Medium bodied with slight alcohol tingle that lingers a bit. Good beer

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2008
2008-05-30. Dark brown body with a waifish tan head (3+). Boozy first impression, but the malty aroma shows some interesting nuances once you get past the alcohol. (7+) Sweetish flavour, caramel notes, mild malt throughout, very lightly astringent in the finish. (7+) Average bodied palate seems a touch light for it. Ok. Bottle, Mondial, Montreal, courtesy of Tuqueboy

On draft at Savor in DC (5/17/08). Tastes of candied sugar, almost like a belgian. The alcohol is very apparent. I wasnít too overwhelmed with this but Iím not too familiar with english strongs.
