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.

Draft at the growler. Pours a deep black color like heavy Motor oil. Boozy with a bourbon backbone . Kind of too sweet for my liking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

under-complicated review: I have had this before in bottles. Draft tonight for first time. This was my second beer of the night, and I spent time socializing instead of smelling or looking. I know it is a beautiful looking beer in the snifter. This was one of the first bourbon aged beers I have had, and still one of the better ones. A lot seem like cheap booze, or very overpowering. This is more complimentary. It is a good craft beer, with hints in the smell and taste of bourbon. It is a sipper, but one that as it warms just improves. Very good beer.

Excellent. I had this the first time years ago... a virgin per se... it was actually the beer that got me into craft beers. I didn’t rate it then but now i will. Aroma is bourbon and oak... inviting, and warm. Appearance is dark with significant lacing. Taste is dark fruit, bourbon, and some oak. Palate is full and a little sticky (which i like). Overall, i can see why this beer introduced me to enjoying craft beers over the last couple years. Thanks New Holland.

A lot of vanilla .much more than most beers in this style. Hints of chocolate and the bourbon is apparent. It is well balanced and sweet. A different approach to a BBS. I found it the easiest to drink of the BBS that I have had. I would drink again.

Tastes far more like oak than stout. Really like taking a bite from my parents dinner table. And yes, I have. Other than that some unbalanced booze. Slightly syrupy consistency. Barrel bitter and slightly sweet finish. Cask at Church key.

Draught @mugsBK for SplitThySkull. Pours not quite black with great lace. Aroma is sweet moderate boozy coffee cake well rounded. Flavor adds some lactic notes, banana, wood, cinnamon, deep boozy end. Feel is thick, wood lively, light tart. Big beer and lots to take in. would like to try this with a few years on it.

2013 vintage, pours a very dark brown with some deep red highlights around the edge with a one finger beige head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. Flavor is more bourbon chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. It has a fuller mouthfeel than you would expect when pouring. Finishes dry with a touch of alcohol warmth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
