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.

KoNrRiI (961) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2015
0.65 bottle. Clear, very dark brown color and a medium, creamy, tanned head. Aroma of cheese, fruits, delicate alcohol, malts, and a touch of bourbon. Taste is sweet, malty, woody, cheese is still here, so are dark fruits. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is sweeter, more vinous, more fruity, nonetheless the cheese is still very much present. Overall, the beer is quite good - quite a weird result with all those cheesy notes.

CurbDog (99) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
One finger creamy tan head, fades quickly to a ring around the glass. Head is fairly light coloured for an imperial stout (interesting). Colour is black with some ruby highlights, very dark but obviously clear. Aroma is prodominantly bourbon, light oak, vanilla, subdued roast and chocolate. Flavours match, malt acts mostly as a delivery for the bourbon and barrel character. Medium- high body with lighter finish for such a strong beer, which brings the booze forward. Nice imp stout that showcases the bourbon and barrel character, but a little more roast and chocolate would push this beer to the next level.

Really smooth and creamy but also a little boozy...which I would expect from a bourbon barrel stout. This beer will definitely get you fucked though.

tfontana (375) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 30, 2015
2015 vintage bottos pour into pint glass. Aroma is rich roasted malts with vanilla, fruit and bourbon. Appearance is dark, virtually opaque with 1/2 finger-width head and trace lacing. Taste is very sweet caramel and vanilla with addition of bourbon but not overwhelmed by it. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, absent carbonation, and pleasantly long sweet bourbony finish with warmth in belly. Overall, a nice sipping dessert beer with some complexity which is not overrun by the bourbon-barrel aging.

SvanteL (118) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
I det närmaste svart med ljusbrunt, ganska litet skum. I doften kommer direkt vaniljtonerna från bourbunfatet, men här finns också chokladkola, fikon och dadlar. I smaken finns en rejäl maltsötma som understöds av vaniljtonerna, mörk chokladkola, aningen kaffe, fikon och dadlar samt lite ektoner. En riktigt härlig imperial stout, smakrik och välbalanserad.

Pyrmir (5055) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle sample at SBWF15. Pitch black with beige head. Aroma is big on bourbon and vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is similar, big and bold, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, bourbon and some dark fruits.

glennmastrange (2530) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, dark chocolate and molasses for the malt, light resin, moderate earth, bourbon wood. Head is small, creamy, brown with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and heavily bitter. Palate is full, syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation and finishes a bit chalky and dry. This is my kind of Imperial Stout, heavy duty flavors and aromas. A slow drinker for sure.

Flaska från whole foods nyc. Svart med beige skum. Doft av choklad och kakor. Mjölkchoklad i smaken med lite ettrig kolsyra.
