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.

On cask. No particular aroma. Flavor really muddy with lots of alcohol. Strikingly indistinct.

Pours nearly black with a thin head that wanes quickly. Strong aroma of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, and a bit of bourbon. Sweet, but not too sweet dominates. The toasted malt is in the background, but the vanilla and bourbon flavors dominate (in a good way). Very little of the booziness seen in some other 10% beers. Mouth feel is rich, not slick, and the finish is just dry enough. Very good.

Ed5388 (1725) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2014
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pours black with a finger of creamy mocha head. Aroma of milk chocolate, dark roasted malts, vanilla, and barrel. Taste of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, dry wood, and a hint of vanilla and booze. Rich creamy mouthfeel. Solid

Holtguy (114) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours dark, almost black. Fluffy off white head. Aroma is weak, maybe this winter’s cold has destroyed by olfactory system. Anyway, flavor is impy stout mellowed a bit by oak and vanilla. Very good. Highs abv that packs a wallop, but is hardly noticeable in the flavor. Great beer.

Bottle. Poured black with a tan head. Chocolate, coffee and a bit of bourbon are balanced superbly. They’re ageing bourbon in the Dragons Milk barrels these days and it’s excellent.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Mastikim. Thanks troubles. 2013 bottle. Black with a small tan head. Roasty aroma with coffee, some cocoa and bourbon notes. Sweet flavor with bourbon, chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla. Full-bodied, but not thick enough. A bit too boozy.

BeerBeforeH20 (126) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle to snifter, dark pour with a khaki head. Aroma is big, hot with bourbon and balanced by dark fruit, sweet malts, cocoa and a woody earthy hint. Tatse is sweet with a smooth mouthfeel. There are notes of sweet malts and fruit with hints of cocoa and coffee with a warm boozy finish. This is great, love it.

Best beer I have ever tasted. Hard to find, even in MI. A rich, aromatic bourbon aged imperial stout worth hunting down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
