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.

Definite Bourbon aroma and taste with traces of vanilla and coffee. This is a very good stout. Bought a 4-pack at a convenience store in Michigan for $17. For that price I could have found a very decent bourbon back home.

Current Year (not aged). APPEARANCE ? pours perfectly black, as you?d expect. Thin white head with little staying power. NOSE ? extremely light bourbon scent. FLAVOR ? a fairly mellow bourbon flavor, more balanced than most bourbon barrel stouts on the market today. NOTES ? one of the better bourbon barrel aged stouts today. Nicely balanced and mellow.

The hint of whisky is immediately noticeable in both aroma & palate. The beer is thick & dark. It has a complex flavor & you will notice two very distinct flavor experiences. The first as it hits the palate & the second after it has gone down. A very potent beer at 11 percent ABV. I have sampled this brew from the bottle & from the tap at the brewery in Michigan. I like it a lot.

Smells like bourbon.. a little coffee, but mostly bourbon. Black with a creamy head with a little bit of red in it. Tastes like coffee and chocolate with just a little of the burn from the oak barrel. My new favorite beer, simply amazing.

Black with a nice brownish fading head. Superb hot chocolate aroma, a little roasted and nuts, hint of coffee. Mainly sweet. Full body, thick brew with a soft carbonation, long chocolate finish.

Pours a one finger light tan head that vanishes leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Molasses and malt nose and taste is bourbon, sweet malt and molasses. High ABV (label has 11%) is hidden. $4.80 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

In tap at On Rotation. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas are cherries, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. The mother is dry and bitter with a heavy body and light carbonation. Cheers!

Available year round, an unpretentious imperial stout which does not leave a chocolate taste lingering in the mouth. Goes down easy and smooth. Civilized and well balanced.

On tap. Pours a solid black with a short tan head and lots of lacing. It has a nice aroma of bourbon, dark malt, and some toast. The flavor is dark malt, chocolate, and bourbon throughout with a semisweet finish over a heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
