3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
recent bottle purchase from sline..2015 vintage...pours a fairly jet black..nose is a mixture of wood..bourbon..vanilla and cinnamon..mouthfeel is ok but just doesnít have enough depth of character for me..comes across more of a milk stout on steroids rather than a proper imperial stout..perhaps some age will allow the bourbon to shine through more..ok though..fairly smooth for the pretty extreme abv..

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This robust beer was tasted many time but I refer to the Oak Age 2010 vintage. I like the deep complex wood notes from those bourbon casks. I detected vanilla, caramel notes. Rich but with a bit acid oily mouth-feel the became stronger as the glass warmed. Black in color, opaque in clarity, complex coffee aroma with the black malt. Dragon milk is a heavy body beer with a creamy delicate head. Malt forward and what a kick at I was told is closer to 10% ABV. Yum

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lots of bourbon notes, that complement the roasty notes of chocolate, coffee and licorice, ABV evident, toffee, vanilla and caramel.
Black colour, small tan head.
Rich luscious velvety flavour, noticably sweet, mid-bitter, salty, ABV evident and the barrel-aging has been done to perfection.
Fullbodied, soft carbonation, sweet, salty and luxuriously warming finish.
What a treat.
