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.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo (I think) sat in mums and Keiths new house, Kempsey, Nr Worcester, Friday 16th September 2016 Pours black with a filmy head, soft in the mouth, boozy with some heat, soft in the mouth, yes the bourbon really does stamp out its mark all over this beer. The usual attributes from this style are present, itís just they are flooded out by Bourbon. Fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 OV13 3.2

Really interesting and delicious stout. Pours almost black with a tall but thin tan head. Strong aroma of vanilla. Wonderful on the palate; smooth as silk with good mouth feel. Tastes of vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon and is fairly sweet. Lovely brew.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Pours a nice black with some tan head. Smell is bourbon, oak, vanilla, and roasted malt. Taste is a sweet, chocolatey roasted malt, with hints of coffee, finishing with bourbon and faint amounts of oak. Full bodied and very creamy. A, rich, sweet stout. Not bad, I?d grab another if the opportunity came up.

Vestergaard (1693) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2016
From bottle. Pours a pitch black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma has roasted malts, bourbon, milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Taste is roasty, light bitter, rather sweet, pretty boozy, oaky bourbon finish. Low carb and an oily body. Nice value stout!

I havenít been holding on to this for very long; perhaps a couple of months. I havenít had an awful lot of chances to do review, but I knew that this one would have to be soon. The idea of a bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Stout is always intriguing. I took it out of the refrigerator and let it sit for just a little while, allowing the warmth of the room to work its magic before opening the bottle. Delightful to watch, the slightly viscous liquid cascades into the glass, hugging the walls and presents with a thin, latte colored foam. The aroma is very light bourbon, soaked in oak and dark fruits. Some hints of chocolate are apparent and I could imagine that itís going to be an easy one to enjoy. As I sip, the carbonation eats at the surface of my tongue, and although I am not as big a fan of carbonation in an Imperial Stout, this seems to pave the way for the flavor. I taste the chocolate, heavier in the flavor than it is in the aroma, and the bourbon accents the chocolate very nicely without being overbearing or bitchy. The oak flavors come through nicely; the time it spent in those barrels did an excellent job of subtlety and warmth. The finish is comfortable, quiet, and short; it allows the beer to be a drinker, rather than a sipper, despite the style. A delicious brew, and something I would buy again. Surely a brew worthy of a first-timers Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout.

OrthoDoc (185) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Excellent BBIS. 4 months old, aroma of bourbon, vanilla, faint chocolate, and burnt brown sugar. Taste is very smooth with same notes as the aroma. Delicious tasting stout with just enough sweetness to balance the dark roast. Medium mouthfeel, a little light for a big stout but definitely not too light. Nice one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
