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.

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 havenít seen this in a bottle, but hope to before they are done with it.

Dark, opaque color; pours with a nice head. Smoky, malt aroma; you really pick up the notes from the wood barreling giving it an almost bourbon-like quality to the nose. The flavor is complex, there is a sweetness to it along with vanilla, coffee, chocolate, fruit, and almost a liqueur quality. You can taste the alcohol on the finish, but it is not at all unpleasant. All around an excellent dark beer and probably the best thing New Holland Brewery produces.

Coffee, dark chocolate and alcohol greet the olfactories, dark brown, has a tiny tan head. Some wood has imparted to the flavour, perhaps even, whiskey barrel? An appreciated smokiness to the malt as well. Full bodied, bitter as can be. Great! Thanks mds.

22 oz bottle. Dark but clear purple brown. Tan head dies to bubbles; some lace. Strawberry preserves, prunes and fudge brownies. Brown sugar in the back. Quite the nose. Soft and syrupy with apple jack tang. Taste moves from cocoa to coconut to vanilla. As sweetness fades coffee, oak and bourbon emerge. A bit hot but very good. Would love to get another to age.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep brown with some burgundy color ale with a nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with some bourbon notes is well balance. Taste is also comprised of a nice balance between some sweet malt with some dry fruits elements as well as some bourbon with nice vanilla notes. Body is about average with some medium carbonation and no alcohol is apparent. I like how the bourbon is present but does not dominate or brings too much alcohol. A very interesting and different beer that leaves wanting to try more from this brewer.

1/2 pint from the tap at a local restaurant. Nice dark color... sweet malty aroma. Great taste, nice body... a little bit of a black licorice aftertaste. This is a really nice beer. Not something that I could drink all day (being as sweet as it is) but the alcohol is masked well and itís quite tasty.

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.
