Dragon’s 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.

tfontana (307) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 30, 2015
2015 vintage bottos pour into pint glass. Aroma is rich roasted malts with vanilla, fruit and bourbon. Appearance is dark, virtually opaque with 1/2 finger-width head and trace lacing. Taste is very sweet caramel and vanilla with addition of bourbon but not overwhelmed by it. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, absent carbonation, and pleasantly long sweet bourbony finish with warmth in belly. Overall, a nice sipping dessert beer with some complexity which is not overrun by the bourbon-barrel aging.

I det närmaste svart med ljusbrunt, ganska litet skum. I doften kommer direkt vaniljtonerna från bourbunfatet, men här finns också chokladkola, fikon och dadlar. I smaken finns en rejäl maltsötma som understöds av vaniljtonerna, mörk chokladkola, aningen kaffe, fikon och dadlar samt lite ektoner. En riktigt härlig imperial stout, smakrik och välbalanserad.

Bottle from SB. Very dark brown with a small brown head. Malty and woody tones. Malt, wood, vanilla, fruit and hops. Full body with a long balanced finish.

Pyrmir (4737) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle sample at SBWF15. Pitch black with beige head. Aroma is big on bourbon and vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is similar, big and bold, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, bourbon and some dark fruits.

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, dark chocolate and molasses for the malt, light resin, moderate earth, bourbon wood. Head is small, creamy, brown with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and heavily bitter. Palate is full, syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation and finishes a bit chalky and dry. This is my kind of Imperial Stout, heavy duty flavors and aromas. A slow drinker for sure.

Flaska från whole foods nyc. Svart med beige skum. Doft av choklad och kakor. Mjölkchoklad i smaken med lite ettrig kolsyra.

Bourbon-barrel 11 oz tap. Deep, rich, bourbon backbone. Really nice beer. Thick body, nice head, delicious vanilla/creamy tones.

Hopmaestro (869) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2015
Aroma of sweet milk chocolates, vanilla and wet wood. Taste is a rather sweet and vanilla accentuated sensation. Dark malts with a smooth aura and in the aftertaste a prominent touch of bourbon mixed with caramelly brown sugars. Great stuff!

slowrunner77 (7884) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 13, 2015
11% on tap at BeerNV, and one of the smoothest double digit strength beers I’ve had in a loooong time. Notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malt throughout. Velvety feel. Fantastic beer!

NikkTwist (2142) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black poor with a lasting ring of khaki foam. Only a few tiny splashes of lace. Thick silky body. Medium-dark roasted malts. Chocolate liquor. Tannic fruit. Blackberries. Currants. Molasses candies. Vanilla Bourbon. Notable lactose but feels more like a Christmas brew than a Milk Stout. Darkly sweet but finishes mostly warm and spicy. Not very aromatic though, even after it warmed. Flavors are good but not deep. Still a very pleasant, delicate and thoughtful brew that I would certainly have again.
