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.

Luscious, velvety mouthfeel helps deliver this smooth, malty sipper. Loads of oak and vanilla in both the nose and body. Soft carbonation. I swear there is lactose in this - it almost drinks like a milk stout. Lots of nut and caramel add balance throughout. No detection of the high ABV.

(bottle) Deep brown with hints of red, large tan head. Aroma is peat and malt with a hint of cabbage (? maybe an old bottle). Flavor is malt, oak, buorbon wtih a musty finish.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 starts off with a great name and doesnít dissapoint with its taste. Great caramel flavor. A very different style of ale but very good. The 9% abv is also very surprising it is well disguised. All and all very good with many thanks to Tom @ Union Jackís

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin tan head that quickly goes to a collar.

The aroma is oakey and vinous with a big chocolate and peat malt base and a touch of tart and sour dark fruits. As it warms, old cheese comes out.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts with a touch of vinous alcohol and plums. It has a smooth woody finish. As it warms, a lot of tart (almost sour) fruitiness comes out (cherries, plums). The mouthfeel is medium bodied and velvety.

Overall, it was not as complex as I had expected. The more I drank of it, the less I liked it. The tart sourness started to become a bit overbearing. It kind of reminds me of liquid fruit cake.

22 oz. bottle. Interesting. Dark brown body with very nice whiteish head. Aroma of caramel and sour milk. Flavor is similar with a caramel sweetness at the onset, followed by a surprisingly not unpleasant sour milk finish. Palate is fairly smooth. An odd beer, and not my favorite, but well worth trying.

22oz bottle @ Union Jackís (Thanks Tom!). The aroma is sweet & carmelly. First sip is creamy, milk-like - somewhat unusual. I could not get the taste of caramel chews out of head as I drank this. Definitely different, but absolutely tasty!! I never would have guessed the 9%abv.

Aroma sweet creamy and milk-like - there is also some roastedness and oak as well. It is a very dark brown with a slight reddish tint. The taste has smooth roasted oak taste with lots of creamy characteristics. Some hop bitterness on the finish. Hints of chocolate come into plays further down the glass. Light to medium carbonation with this medium bodied beer. Very interesting beer that is worth trying.

22oz. bomber. One of the best looking beers ive seen with a sticking head and great lacing. The aroma began with a wonderful choclate, vanilla, and fruits and by the end it was alcohol and bourbony. At the first taste, I was a little unsure. The taste did not seem to match the aroma at all. I got a chemical metallic flavor, but as it warmed it definitely improved exponentially. By the end it tasted more like a red wine or bourbon than a beer. The flavor tasted a little sour but it was a good sour that added to the flavor.

All in all this beer is fairly distgusting. Dragons Milk crashes through the barrier between complex and just plain wierd. Opaque mahogany/black color with a decent tan head, I could immediately tell that this was not going to be good. Aroma of roast malt, charcoal and milk. The kind of milk in your fridge, that is, and a bit spoiled as well. Watery palate, no alcohol presence detected or felt. Skim milk poured into a average porter is what this beer tasted like to me. The bottle says this is the "crown jewel" of the New Holland Brewery, I say, off with their heads!

22oz bottle thanks to Pailhead: Pours to an opaque brown with some redish highlights when held to the light. Atop sits a gigantic light brown head that lasts with some nice lacing. The aroma is light roast, spices, light citrus, oak. The taste is slightly acidic, with some chocolate, oak, raspberry, spicy oak, cherry, citrus, light floral hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, finishes with some acidic roasted notes.
