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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color that isnít entirely opaque. The mocha-colored head is nice and creamy, and about two fingers high. It fades down to about a half finger after a while, and leaves nice rings of lacing on the glass. S: Wow, this is sweet. There isnít much bourbon on the nose...but there is a solid oak presence, giving off very strong vanilla notes. Beneath the vanilla are strong chocolate and molasses tones. Aromatically, it strikes me as an enjoyable-yet-straightforward dessert beer. T: There is a bourbon presence here, but itís pretty basic...the vanilla notes are massively bold yet they lack the additional subtleties of a BCBS or Parabola to make them stand out. I also notice touches of chocolate; otherwise, this is more or less a vanilla/tannin bomb. Even a single 12 oz bottle can become wearisome to drink. M: Quite sweet, yet with a drying, tannic finish. Iíd actually reckon itís a bit too tannic on the back end, verging into mild harshness. I could also use a bit more body to properly support how syrupy the texture is. O: Itís not undrinkable, however its sweetness is way too fatiguing. Even worse, the beer itself seems designed to showcase the barrel notes, but theyíre far too basic to really succeed at that, either. For about 6 oz, I thought this was pretty good; for the other 6 oz, I couldnít wait for it to end. So, if youíre gonna try it, make sure you split it with a friend, and donít expect BCBS.

ACHops (1376) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2016
13 oz bottle served in a tulip glass. Pours inky black, thin mocha head, slightly thin body for the style. Aroma is sweet, oaky bourbon up front; lightly roasty dark chocolate malt. Taste is clean roasty malt, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, figs. Light bourbon on the finish. Solid barrel-aged stout, plenty of nice barrel flavors, could use a bit more malt depth.

Foxbush (1833) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2016
12 oz bottle from Caboose in Ashland, VA the stout pours a deep black with no head but a tan collar. The aroma of bourbon, chocolate and roasted malt greets you. The body is full and creamy with very soft carbonation. The taste is wonderful with bourbon and dark chocolate. The finish is like an alcohol induced chocolate milk shake.
