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.

pours dark black. taste is roasty, but not quite enough to be mistaken as a stout. very smooth for a 9% beer wonderfully flavor, you can really tell this was aged on wood. a very interesting beer.

This black ale poured with a decent caramel head and a malty aroma. There is a very creamy chocolate malt flavor with a chalky finish. Quite delicious.

Murky dark brown when poured. Roasted malts and dark fruits dominate the aroma, yielding a bit to some wood, vanilla and brwn sugar. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side, but there is a slight smokiness that keeps the whole affair a bit vibrant. Interesting.

On tap at the Vintage Estates, thanks Nuts. Beautiful black pour, looks dee-lish wth its chocolate mousse head. Aroma is malty milky and easy going, seems very friendly and mouth watering. As far as the taste goes you’d never know this is 9%, no way. Rather strong and smooth but yet is easy to palate. Some mild creamy carbonation is apparent. Not quite as oppressive as an imp stout, but this is approaching the style. Finish is rather alky overall tho it is well controlled with personality.

100th Rating! Yum Yum Yum! Loved the taste here, and aroma. More chocolate than coffee i think, with a thick finish. Love that it just lingers on the tongue. Hardly any alcohol taste in it. Great Great brew. Cheers!

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Poured a dark chestnut brown, with a reddish tint, and a tan ring of carbonation lacing the sides of the glass. Aroma was rather porter-like, with roasted malts predominating. Flavor was similar to the aroma, with roasted malts at the beginning of the sip, followed by strong wood flavors and tanginess. Finishes creamy, with a touch of dry fruit. Very smooth.

on tap at galway tribes... Pours black, looks like cola. Head light tan with very nice lacing. aroma is packed with vanilla, oak and toffee with chocolate overtones. Palate is a little thin for a 10.5% beer. Flavors has a nice roast malt feel up front ,with vanilla and hints of chocolate and toffee. wonderful finish as well.

On tap at Mad Max Cranberry. Nice and different. Aroma of wine, wood and vanilla. Very complex. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a 2 finger tan head. Taste was vanilla, oak, coffee and chocolate with dark fruits and a strong alcohol burn. Very nice. I haven’t seen this in a bottle, but hope to before they are done with it.
