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.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 22oz bottle. Pours a dark black with a healthy brownish head. Smell is robust with notes of caramel, roasted malt, and nuts. Taste is full-bodied and creamy with strong flavors of coffee, caramel, and alcohol -- not so much a boozy bite as brown liquor flavors. An excellent strong ale with the right balance of complexity and drinkability.

Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours with a cloudy, dark head with an aroma ranging between hazelnuts, leather, and burnt sugar. The aftertaste leaves us with a slighty more powerful than desired alcohol/varnish flavor, but quickly balances out. As complex as an ale ought to be, another fine submission from the folks at New Holland.

Pours a black color with a light brown head. Aroma is malty, dark fruit, and molasses. Flavor is malty, roasty, a hint of smoke, and molasses.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Molasses sweetness limits this but the oily soft water feel and oak, vanilla, dark fruit (plum, rasin?) notes are nice. Chocolate and coffee notes are not over done.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2007
Very dark chestnut, slight fizzy head, sporadic lacing. Tons of vanilla, pecan pie, caramel in the nose and flavour -- almost too much, making it not very balanced. Milky and thin, akin to chocolate Yoo Hoo. Slightly sourish aftertaste. Great tasting if over-the-top.

Nephilium (1470) - Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Starts with a nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, and a touch of oak. It pours a dark (almost black) color, with red visible when held up to a light with a moderate tan head. The flavor is a thick chocolate flavor, with hints of coffee and vanilla, with an oily texture. There is a touch of hop bitterness that hides in the back end, and blends amazingly well with the coffee and chocolate notes. The 9% ABV is amazingly well hidden. This is a very tasty beer, and one that I could sip most nights.

22oz. bottle. Poured a very dark almost oily color. Aroma is tangy and sweet. Taste is smooth with a bit of coffe at the end.

Wow, is this an impressive beer. Smell of whiskey and vanilla. Taste is unbelievably smooth with chocholate malt flavor mixed in with oak and vanilla.

This was a good beer, but for some reason it left me wanting a little more. It was a little light in flavor for what I was expectiing and could have use a little more head in the glass (none to speak of). This is common to style, but I would like to see a little more.

Thanks to Boboski for the tasting. Pours out dark and foreboding, no head to speak of. Aroma is oak, winey merlot and chocolate malt. Taste has the same little hints of merlot and chocolate malt. A little sour in the aftertaste that kind of turned me off. Very strange.
