COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BeerandBlues2 (10784) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours opaque with a small, rocky, light brown head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, nutty), light hop (grass), average yeast (leather) with notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla, prune, date, and toffee. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, average carbonation, and a spicy finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Drake (10513) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2008
FAIL!!! Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville (I think). Cola brown pour with faint lacing and no head. Aroma of cream, coffee, chocolate and brown sugar. So far so good. Big oakiness in the taste, a hint of whisky, and definite notes of... rotting cabbage! Fairly strong too. Foul, and in a bad way. Drain pour today... I’ll re-rate next year’s batch.
