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.

A round black beer that with a brown-white head. Silky and warm like a lady in lingerie. Ebony brown. Bourbon, oak, and dark chocolate. Tres nice.

Bottle purchased at Samís/Chicago. Pours dark brown with ruby edges and a quickly fading beige head. Roastiness, caramel, oak, nuttiness and light alcohol in the nose. Flavor has notes of plum, raisin, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and brown sugar. Plesantly sweet, plenty of hop backing and bitterness. Medium bodied with a smooth texture, perhaps a tad thin along with moderate carbonation. Solid.

Bottle (650ml). Poured almost opaque deep chestnut, average creamy tan head. Lovely rich deep roast chocolate/caramel malt, yeasty and woody, soft hints of vanilla. Taste is initially a little metallic, which quickly resolves to a little sharp alcohol burn, then the sweet bourbon character rides with the chocolate malt to the forefront - lovely, smooth, rich and strong, this is good stuff! Decently thick body, creamy mouthfeel, the alcohol behaves itself in the finish, - this is a great malty medium-big beer and Iíll look for it again, the only knock is thereís that hint of metal in the taste.

Poured from a bomber. Thick dark brown and cloudy. A thin ring of head remains.. Intense aromas of caramel, molasses, vanilla, bourbon, coffee. Very smooth flavor and the alcohol seems to be well hidden. I will let this warm up to see if the flavor intensifies. Not quite as complex as an imperial stout, but still a good sipper.

Poured a dark brown color with a tanish color head left okay lacing. Aroma was of coffee, vanilla some oak. Tasted much the same with some roastedness. Had a nice warming ness to it

Well I have to go against the grain with this review. I tried this initially as part of our weekly tastings, and decided to give it another chance. Second time around my mind is changed. The color is dark and powerful looking, with great off-brown lacing. The nose is that of very strong chocolate, vanilla, and some alcohol. The flavor is very smooth, with a nice chocolate vanilla balance to the alcohol and bourbon sharpness. The finish is fairly long lasting and exhibits a little hop character. All in all a good beer that definately improves as it warms, but I like to drink from 50 degrees down.

Like some beer with your bourbon? This is for you. Powerful bourbon aroma. Light brown color and lightly carbonated. A little sweet flavor, very heavy and thick with more bourbon in the flavor. Simple and one dimensional, and the alcohol flavor makes it a little hard to drink.

Holy Moley. This was a disappointment. I got suckered in by the name. I like New Holland, but sometimes, they just suck. Here is one example. Stick to the hops, guys.

Poured a dark deep brown-black color with a nice tan-chocolate head. Lacing was decent. Aroma was chocolate, coffee, and roasted caramel with something just "off" or not right about this one. The flavor was chocolate, coffee, molasses, caramel, and cardboard. The combination of flavors in this thing was quite odd for a stout and not that pleasant, including an overall sweetness that was cloying. Mouthfeel was average for the style. I think the bottle said something about oak (aged?), but none of that was detected by me.

Bomber poured an opaque blak with a small disapating brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, oak and a hint of bourbon. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of oak, vanilla, a bit of bourbon, hint of carmel, roasted malt and brown sugar with a lingering sweet finish.
