3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark, thick, black color with a medium sized tan head. the aroma is cocoa, oak and sweet molasses. The taste has a nice bourbon bite and brings in the cocoa and oak. A really good brew.

Thick vanilla ice cream nose. Itís thick And delicious but a bit too sweet to be excellent. The vanilla from the barrel is the star all the way through. No real boozy heat to it which surprising and quite delightful.
