COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragon’s 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.

Taste is medium+ sweet caramel, milky, dark fruity candy, chocolate, cocoa, bourbon vanilla, quite boozy with alcohol warmth, dry finish. Full- bodied, soft carbonation, thick and syrupy. Quite bourbony, and the chocolate has a somewhat artificial feel to it.

Obfuscate (391) - Minneapolis, - JAN 7, 2016
Vanilla, slight chocolate, milk on the nose. No huge coffee or booze smell like many in the style and I like that. Taste pretty smooth and clean for 11% abv. You get a healthy dose of toffee, vanilla and cream up front with a long boozy bitterness on the back.

jrodooo5 (1370) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Not the most attractive but exceptionally smooth & quite tasty! Velvet like on the palate for the high abv! Very good chocolate & bourbon flavors. The aroma is rich w/ bourbon & chocolate. The body is light enough to make this dangerously drinkable! Definitely worth a try even at its price point! Delicious!
