This was pretty pricey ($16 for a 4-pack where I live), it better be good. I have heard great things about this one; finally decided to try it myself. Dragonís Milk pours dark brown instead of black and it looks more like a porter than a stout. It has a very light tan head. Different looking than my favorite stouts, so Iím docking it a few points there. Biased for sure, but Itís my review. The aroma is a little light for such a big stout. There is some cappuccino, bourbon sweetness, malt, black licorice and dark chocolate. Good smell, but I was expecting stronger. The taste is a perfect mash-up of a milk stout (is that why itís called Dragonís Milk?) and a coffee stout. Think of a watered down version of your favorite bourbon barrel aged stout. The palate was disappointing. Watery, thin with an aftertaste of coffee bitterness and not much else. This brew is exceedingly drinkable for 10% ABV, but I donít feel that itís worth the money. Good, not great. If I were RB, I wouldnít give it a 98. More like an 85.

Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured an opaque black with a tan head and lacing. Taste of chocolate milk, vanilla and very subtle roasted malts. Average carbonation, full body, oily texture.

Near black with a beige head. Aroma is strong sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. Taste follows the nose and is very easy to drink. Alcohol is completely hidden. Slick full body. Really nice beer.

Wow. The first sip is mind-blowing. Then itís still excellent. Bourbon, vanilla combine to almost be a coconut flavor.

A hot beer without the complexity to mask it. Palate is very light but with the high abv kick. Would not buy again

Una de las revelaciones del Barcelona Beer Festival. Tienes el embeleso del dulzor, derivado de la lactosa, que te hace olvidar que estŠs ante una bestia alcohůlica. PodrŪa estar bebiendo mŠs, lo cual es una estupenda seŮal.
