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.

650ml bottle. Dark brown with a frothy beige head. Flavors are dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, marshmallows, coconut, roasted malts and a slight touch of bourbon with nutty and oaky notes. Subtle but cohesive barrel characteristics. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 23, 2015
From a growler. A black body with a fast fading brown head. Aroma was a mix of roasted malts, oak and alcohol with hints of vanilla and leather. Flavor had nice roasted flavors and there was a hint of chocolate. A strong bourbon presence in the finish. Light on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle. Dark brown body, medium chocolate head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of licorice, dark berries, alcohol, roasted malt, a touch of leather. Taste is very malty: lots of caramel malt, dark chocolate, herbs liquor, alcohol. Too boozy.

skmikeg (1124) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours pitch black with a one finger khaki head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark fruits, bourbon, anise, coffee, dark chocolate, and maybe just a little booze. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a lot of nice bourbon and roasted malt notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel a semi bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, a tasty, complex imperial stout.

probstblueribbon (3182) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with ruby highlights and a decent light mocha head. Aroma: A bit bright and savoury, peppery, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, molasses, a touch smoky, brown sugar and a sweet toffee note, a little vanilla, some nice maltiness that seems to be overridden by that odd savoury/peppery aroma. Palate: Medium-full body with restrained carbonation and a syrupy feel. Flav.: Very sweet and rich dark maltiness, milk chocolate abounds, with some molasses and vanilla, coconut, barrel character is nicely integrated, slightly peppery/spicy, quite good...could temperature be the reason for the weird aromas?; sweet with balancing bitterness and a long, boozy, richly malty and slightly peppery finish.

This is a big momma Dragon.

Poured from a 22oz bottle purchased from Costco - Vintage 2014. Aroma - probably one of my first bourbon barrel stouts, and this appears to be a good example. Definitely smell the bourbon along with chocolate and cocoa. Appearance - Jetblack pour and the head almost immediately dissipated - probably due to the 11% ABV Taste - Wow...super smooth. Can taste dark chocolate, cherries and a small alcohol burn. Palate - Nice bite at the end...great lingering affect. Overall - Should have picked up 2 bottles, one to drink and one to cellar. A top notch stout.

Ours dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate, oak, and bourbon. Tastes of vanilla, oak, bourbon, and mild milk chocolate. Nice after dinner beer! Well balanced and delicious. Remarkably smooth and deceptively high in alcohol. Tastes like a strong milk stout. Finishes with a lingering vanilla flavor. Fantastic!
