Aroma coffee, roasty, vanilla, woody, Appearance brown, black, tan foam, brown foam, Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter, Palate medium body, full body, Overall a nice roasty beer with hints of chocolate and coffee. There is a little bit of an alcohol taste on the back end that is not pleasing to me. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

10-11 ounce pour - $9.50 at World of Beer in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Served up an opaque, very dark brown body with a coating, sandy-hued head. Smell: The nose on this one is roasted malt and coffee, warmed, vanilla-infused sugars with bittersweet chocolate. Hints of raisins and wood. Taste: Chocolate sauce and liberally sweetened coffee with vanilla and a bit of caramel. Sugary, I’ll say, flirts with being cloying. Slight dark fruitiness along the way. Slight woodsy undertone. A bit of alcoholic warmth without being boozy. Sweet, smooth finish. Mouthfeel: Fullish body. Relatively soft carbonation. Overall: It’s alright.

Half growler. Ebony and opaque with a thin film of foam. Nose is cocoa nibs, espresso and a hint of booze. Tastes of espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla, fig, mint and peppery booze. Medium-heavy body has medium carbonation and a nice balance, if just a bit sticky.

It pours dark brown with a large soapy tan head. The aroma has coffee, cream, chocolate, deep roast, oak and a bit of coconut. It has a full rich body with mild carbonation. The taste has coffee, cacao nibs, rich toasty malt, licorice and earthy hops. Pretty nice. One of the better variants they’ve released.

Bottle. Pours black. minimal tan head. Roasty coffee aroma. Flavor of bitter coffee and very dark chocolate. Full bodied. Its been a while since I’ve had regular Dragon’s Milk, but this version is pretty darn good. Hard to imagine that it could have been any roastier. Very nicely done.

chucklemation (1763) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is rich chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and coffee. Flavor is heavier on the bourbon, but with the rich chocolate and coffee still present. The bourbon is a touch strong for me, overpowering the coffee notes, and the body is thin for such a big stout. Still, this is rather good.

Sample at WOBFest 2016. Is it fair to have small iterations of the same beer occupying the top spaces of your beer ratings? I’ll work on that dilemma some other day. For now, I will record that this is an even more tasty version of Dragon’s Milk and I love the addition of coffee and chocolate to the aging process.
