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.

The best barrel aged stout that has easy access all of then time. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is pretty weak with barely any bourbon on the nose. Taste is awesome though, great bourbon taste balanced with vanilla, burnt sugar roasty taste. Small burn but overall this is a great beer. Would love to see some variants roll out soon.

Bottle....pungent oak aroma mixed with a sweet candied malt...its dark brown...appears black...oak apparent in the taste as well...the dragon dipped its teat in vanilla and took a nap in an oak barrel after a meal of malt balls!

12 oz bottle into tulip. Dark, nice tan lacing and some persistent head. Aroma is vanilla, cherry, caramel. Tastes roasty vanilla bourbon, cherry and plum, malt with some hop echoes. Maybe too hoppy, maybe too thin - those factors set it apart from more celebrated BBA stouts.

Bottle. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of chocolate, toffee, and alcohol. Medium body and creamy texture. Very sweet up front with nice alcohol warmth that lingers for a while. Hints of oak and bourbon with a tinge of hoppy bitterness. One of my favorites!

Salmoniform (1006) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2014
2014 poured from bote to glass. Dark hue with creamy brown hue that dissipated to a medium ring. Aroma is chocolate, toffee, caramel, roastiness, vanilla, oak. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet (but not cloying) with a nice roasted following and slight ethanol finish. Overall this is a VERY good and well balanced brew!

Spab (2575) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a ruby-tinged dark brown with good-sized, creamy, lacey light tan head. Aroma is roasty, dark malts, dark fruit, oak and bourbon. Flavour has fair amount of oaky, vanillay barrel, a solid treacley , roasty dark malt, a bit of brown sugar and dark fruit and hints of bourbon. Silky mouthfeel. Impressive.

Freaky_tiki (644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Seeing that I am Dragon Born, it makes sense to pull this from the LCBO shelf. It makes even more sense after seeing the high ratings here. And yet ... Is it maybe a little over rated by some on here? Pours oil spill black with a super thin cap that fades quicker than my drinking buddyís hairline. The booze is stealthy & the barrel is balanced & the malts are a little too sugary. Almost tastes like a weak pour of Jim Beam dumped into a glass of flat cola. Once again, Iíd love to know where they source the barrels but like most brewers they donít bother. Anyone know?

Solid. Seems like good value for the price. Like a BA Old Rasputin-lite. Thin body.

Dark black color with good lace. Big malty sweet chocolate , esprosso grounds aroma with stewed fruit and vanillin as it opens up. Big. Rich. Boozy whiskey finish. What more can one ask for. Primo stuff.
