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.

probstblueribbon (3216) - 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!

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Deep black pour with a thick tan head. The aroma is lovely. Really rich and sweet with a heavy cocoa and chocolate aroma. There is a little bit of bourbon bit itís quite well-integrated into the final product. Rich and intense but still well-balanced. Delicious.

CacheManyHose (334) - HONG KONG - JAN 2, 2015
Pitch cola-black with almost no tan head. Smells of oak, raisin, anise, dessert wine - sweet and rich though not overpowering. Tastes of acidic burnt malt, cola, wood, nuts, raisin. Bitter and sour. Body is sharp and acidic but very smooth, bitter clean finish. Barrel aged stouts are often too raisiny and sweet and boozy for me - this is all of those things (esp. in aroma) but not too big or unbalanced to be cloying.
