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.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 2012 bottle from Castaneda. Good oaken nose and dark thick chocolate color. Mild carbonation. Overpowering bourbon taste kills it though. 10% and letís you know. ---Rated via my mouth

On tap at yard house, red rocks. Pours black with a tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, wood, vanilla and bourbon. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight boozy finish. Worth having again.

First time drinking this in a few years. Bottle from 2015. Not as impressed as I once was, though, sadly. Iím getting bourbon on the nose, oak and some vanilla on the palate, and lots of bourbon on the finish, but there isnít the fullness that lights up your tongue like some other big stouts. Itís missing some of that deep, cocoa-y roast Iíd like an imperial stout, and the flavors donít seem to meld. Itís not overly complex. I really want to love this beer, but Iím just liking it.

Tap at Hay Merchant. Deep black or, team head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coconut, some bourbon, oak. Lovely. Luscious mouthfeel, taste follows aroma nicely. A winner.

12 Fl. Oz. let me get it out of the way... WOW...!!! I understand the hype... poured black with a nice tan head. Aroma of bourbon, malts, caramel and vanilla. Lots of bourbon but done right (does not overpowers the complexity of this beer), also some coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Very good, very complex, extremely enjoyable.

Dark brown color. Chocolate aromas, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol and wood. Light roasted taste, chocolate, sweet boubon hints of vanilla and some wood. Sweet finish. Iím starting to think I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I like it.

ciocanelu (1067) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 30, 2016
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma starts with dark malts and bourbon sweetness, some dried fruits like dates, a bit of brown sugar and a hint of caramel. Taste is really well balanced. There is caramel and some bourbon at first giving a bit of sweetness but the finish is more roasty and bitter with a bittersweet caramel and bourbon aftertaste. Body is on the heavy side but not really as thick as other BBA imperial stouts. Overall I think itís a really good "beginner" barrel aged stout. Easy to get but well made and tasty.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark, thick, black color with a medium sized tan head. the aroma is cocoa, oak and sweet molasses. The taste has a nice bourbon bite and brings in the cocoa and oak. A really good brew.
