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.

Bottle/Fest. A- Cocoa, bourbon, subtle coffee, subtle vanilla. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Cocoa, booze, subtle vanilla, coffee, oak. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth rich finish. O- A very nice beer that I wish I could have some more of to really appreciate. Just the right amount of booze. I imagine the barrel aged one would almost be overbearing.

Beer is not a bad drinker. I could see myself having a few of these, it has an aftertaste that I'm not fond of but I would drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (10474) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle [from trade with mista] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, medium sized quite quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma is malts, chocolate, some bourbon, a bit sweetish and a hint of vanilla. Taste malts, milk chocolate, a touch of vanilla, bourbon, initially sweetish flavours but bitter as well in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Nice one!
