On tap at Belmont Station. Pours a pitch black hue with a medium grey head. A big roasty nose, huge sweet elements. Spicy, huge sweet vanilla and marshmallow, oily, chocolate and ash. Very sweet, fits the name very well.

bottle. Black with small head. I previously had this at the 2017 Michigan Winter Beer Fest -- this was the variant I most anticipated. Wasn't good there, but I revisited once it was bottled, in the hopes that it would be better. Slightly improved. Marshmallow comes through reasonably well. Chocolate flavor of the base beer seems accented. Graham doesn't really make it through. Not actually bad, but just not as good as it seemed this combo could be.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Beertopia, Omaha, NE. Bottled 6-20-17. Appearance is black with fast dying white head. No lace, low carbonation level. Aroma is really awesome! Shows mild graham cracker, chocolate, and... Wow, indeed, marshmallow. The flavor is spot on burnt marshmallow, dark chocolate, subtle graham cracker in the body. Booze is nearly hidden.

The body and mouthfeel is thin. No bourbon is found here. This is a tasty dessert stout in small doses. More than 6 ounces and it becomes overwhelming with sweetness.

Draft. Of all the dragons milk variants, this is one of the most derivative. Pours a hazed black and aroma is burnt marshamllow, flavor is burnt marshmallow, sweet and boozy.

Bottle - Chocolate' graham cracker and marshmallow. Jet brown with a small beige head. Like it smells with a touch of graham cracker notes. A pastry beer for sure.

mcberko (18977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2017
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is intensely sweet, with tons of s'mores, bourbon barrels and vanilla. Flavour is likewise quite sweet, with plenty of s'mores, bourbon, vanilla and alcohol. Quite sweet, but not quite cloying. Very nice fun sweet beer.

355ml bottle from Elizabeth Station at Matt's. Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is very sweet with lots of marshmallow notes. Similar taste with some bourbon notes. Veeery sweet, loooads of smoores. Pretty interesting, when you have a little bit of it.

SG111 (2033) - New York, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Bottled. Pours black, tan head. A bit thin-looking for the ABV. Aroma is marshmallow and graham cracker heavy. Chocolate, (spot of bourbon). Very marshmallowy. Very sweet, but it is as promised. Quite nice actually. Flavor is marhsmallow, chocolate, vanilla, toffee, graham cracker. The chocolate is quite sweet. Surprisingly light for its abv. Wouldn't put this at 11% but it works. I can see why some people find this adjuncty and gross (it is very adjuncty) but it's pretty tasty. No surprises here, fraknly. Would revisit this.

oobawa (1738) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Sweet and boozy, but with an artificial S'mores profile that grows cloy and glaring as the pint warms. Strong bitter chocolate and mild mocha notes show up, but the marshmallow sweetness slowly grows synthetic and overpowering on the back end, leading to a bitter, medicinal fade much too sugary to bear. Aroma's spot-on, since it smells just like a S'more, and the pour's okay, coming out brown-black with a fizzy beige head and slight lacing. Boozy feel is acceptable for a fresh 11% stout. But this pint tastes a helluva lot more like S'mores flavoring instead of actual S'mores.

Got one of the last 4 packs at the brewery a couple weeks ago. Big sweet smell of that spreadable marshmallow fluff. Graham crackers as well. I don't know how, but they captured it really well. Taste also of 'smores, but not as accurate as the aroma. Nice smooth body and well hidden alcohol, typical of a Dragon's Milk. Pretty good, especially considering I don't really like 'smores.
