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.

[Bottle] Pours an opaque black color with very little head and low carbonation. Vanilla, bourbon and bakers chocolate in the nose. Taste is of burnt molasses, mild peat, vanilla, ash and bourbon. OK mouthfeel, kind of oily. The finish seemed a little hot, but other than that this was a pretty good beer. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2014
Bottle at home picked up somewhere in NYC. Deep ruby-flecked pitch on the pour with a slender beige collar. Aroma of carob, burnt chocolate cake, caramel sauce and custard tinged whiskey. Ridiculous bourbon sweet custard flavour like Youngís Double Chocolate with a slug of Wild Turkey. Slight Baltic salt and ozone, nil alcohol; pure silken oak, decadent and disgusting. I feel dirty.

i found it to be a little watery on the palate, but otherwise pretty decent.

Bottle. Black with a quickly dissipating thin mocha head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, and roasted malt. The taste follows suit and adds raisin, sweet chocolate, and sugar notes on the back end. The alcohol is present in the aftertaste and adds a warm texture to the taste and feel. Low carb, medium palate. Very good all around but pricey ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iíve heard a lot about this beer and thought it was a bit pricey where I live. Nothing ventured nothing gained so I tried it and Iíd have to say for me it was way to much Bourbon oak flavor. I believe if they took that away it would be am awesome beer.For me if I want to drink Bourbon I will but when I want a top-notch beer I really donít want it to taste like Bourbon. Just canít see this as a 98 rating.

Good beer, dark, dark hazy brown color. A roasted vanilla/wood barrel flavor lingers after sipping.

Drinking it in the bottle definitely prefer it on tap. It's a good stout not great like KBS or others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was pretty pricey ($16 for a 4-pack where I live), it better be good. I have heard great things about this one; finally decided to try it myself. Dragonís Milk pours dark brown instead of black and it looks more like a porter than a stout. It has a very light tan head. Different looking than my favorite stouts, so Iím docking it a few points there. Biased for sure, but Itís my review. The aroma is a little light for such a big stout. There is some cappuccino, bourbon sweetness, malt, black licorice and dark chocolate. Good smell, but I was expecting stronger. The taste is a perfect mash-up of a milk stout (is that why itís called Dragonís Milk?) and a coffee stout. Think of a watered down version of your favorite bourbon barrel aged stout. The palate was disappointing. Watery, thin with an aftertaste of coffee bitterness and not much else. This brew is exceedingly drinkable for 10% ABV, but I donít feel that itís worth the money. Good, not great. If I were RB, I wouldnít give it a 98. More like an 85.

Very dark brown or black with no noticeable head. Fruity and doughy scent, scant vanilla oakiness, some bourbon too but overall very smooth. Low carbonation and a very refreshing effervescent finish, viscous oily mouthfeel. Nice oak and vanilla with smooth bourbon flavor, mixed pretty flawlessly. Slightly harsh but good BBA stout.

Draft. Dark black color. Nice, fine carbonation. Evident oak/bourbon barrel aroma and flavor. Smooth tasting. I like it!
