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.

Dark and almmost black with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet and not too strong. Taste is very sweet at first with a sharp hint of liquor. Malt is balnced with the sweetness taking over... and very tasty. Great brew here!

Pours real dark with a light brown head. The nose is a mix of malt and Jim Beam. Very interesting once it hits the mouth... A real bubbly sour malt creates a unique taste and makes every drink an experience. I will be getting this again in the future.

Metalhead (627) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Dark pour with modest short lived head. Moderate aroma of bourbon,mild oak and vanilla. Initial taste is watery bourbon with some oak and hints of vanilla. Decent beer but could use some oomph in the mouthfeel. Not as fullbodied as the taste would indicate. O/W nice. 22 oz bomber,$6.59

22 oz. bomber. Vanilla, molasses, and dark dried fruits are abundant in the aroma of this dark mahogony/brown ale. The aromas carry through to the taste but in a much more muted form. Hints of Bourbon and wood are also present.

From a 22 oz. brown bomber bottle with a blurb about the ale on the back of bottle and no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a opaque dark Coke Cola brown with a large pale tan foamy, cake-like head and a good deal of ringed sticking. For a strong ale, had largely a clean aroma, an oak woodiness, a whiskey-ness and a sweet alcohol aroma. Good carbonation and a sweet, alcoholic medium bodied mouth feel, good sipping drinkability. Had a good oak barrel taste, a nice, smooth dry fruity hoppy bitterness, an pleasant alcoholic bite on the tongue, and a dry hoppy, sweet bitterness in the finish.

Bottle - Poured a very dark opaque brown with an insane amount of tan head that took its time dissipating. Lacing was evident but not overly so. Nice aroma that indicated the barrell aging and an overriding sweet chocolate scent. My first sip was quite a shock as the back of my tongue shot of some sour alarms, but either I adjusted or the beer mellowed because I enjoyed it mroe and more as it went on developing into a subduedly sweet brew with a smooth texture in the mouth. Warming, and as the beer itself warmed hints of oak and the malts became more prevalent, though I never did really sense any bourbon myself. Solid beer but a rather inconsistent drink.

Thanks to Denverlogan for this...Aayiiieeee!!!! This one actually came in a dark 22 oz, silk screened bomber. Appears a hazy dark brownish black with a small tan head that fades into a film. Spotty lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of oaky lactose with cocoa, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is of the same aromas perhaps just knocked down a notch. Mouthfeel is silky and creamy with mild carbonation. Perhaps one of the silkiest beers Iíve ever had.

Bottle. Insane head pour. Insane. Diminishes sloooow with good amount of lacing. Beer is like a black hole, no light getting through. Smell is sticky sweet and complex. Taste is... surprising to say the least. Sour notes bombard and overwhelm anything else. As beer warms, as it took me over an hour to sip this one down, complexities start to arise. Sweet malt, laffy-taffy, cherry, prune, and whisper of caramel. Alcohol burns throat and nose slightly. Hints of grape bitterness at end. Alcohol definately not overwhelming, but warming. Very long aftertaste with a presence of sweet hop finish. Would rate higher, but sourness overwhelms. I wish it tasted like it smelled! Perhaps this would have been better with more age.

22oz bomber, 2005 release.
Pours a dark ruby brown with big foamy head that eventually yields to the rim where it leaves spots of lace here and there. Gorgeous aroma of vanilla, molasses, bourbon, and toasted grain. Dove right in with a big sip expecting it to taste the same. Unfortunately, it didnít. Instead I was immediately confronted with New Hollandís signature subdued sour-mash flavor that seems to permeate its entire product line these days. Eventually it subsides and bits of bourbon, molasses and roasty grain make an appearance, but they clash with the New Holland trademark tartness as they fight their way forward. Medium body and tingly, slightly sticky palate. Talk about being built up just to get knocked down. What a disappointment it was to taste this stuff after its gorgeous aroma.
