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.

Malty and creamy nose. Very chocolate oriented flavors. Nicely hidden alcohol. The aging hasn't dulled the beer, bourbon sweetness is subtle.

GIJOE (619) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours black with very little head. Vanilla, bourbon and bakers chocolate in the nose. Taste is of burnt molasses, mild peat, vanilla, and bourbon. OK mouthfeel, kind of oily. Pretty good brew? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aromas of wet wood, roast, chocolate liquor; rich, bit boozy flavour, not too complex but still tasty

SpongeRuiner (691) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Pours a very dark brown thatís nearly black. A thick bubbly tan colored creamed head that dissipates quick. A nice smell of nutty vanilla and roasty chocolate all dipped in bourbon. The flavors bring out mainly a cheap strong bourbon and a chocolate vanilla mix. Still drinks somewhat thin. Not drinkable at all. The alcohol really settles in a layer of chocolate uncomfortably on the mouth and in the stomach. Not too big of a fan of this one.

Drought@howells&hood: poors dark with a brown head. Smell is of wood, caramel and chocolate. Taste is dominate by whiskey with chocolate and malt beside it. Interesting and good.

I still believe that this is hands down the best bourbon stout in terms of year round availability at a reasonable price. It also happens to be a pretty decent stout. Iíd probably give it a tad lower rating if it werenít for those two reasons but I have to give credit where it is due when I can go into most every grocery store where I live and pick up a bottle at any time. That has to count for something...

Far and away my favorite all year stout. I can get it anywhere year round. Great flavor and aroma. A bomber will do ya, but the alcohol isnít overpowering.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Bourbon and oak aromas. Creamy with dark chocolate and espresso upfront turning to strong bourbon and vanilla in the lasting finish.
