12oz bottle shared. Dark pour, minimal head. Aroma is awesome, chocolate, bourbon, just a little raspberry. Taste is spot on, boozy, sweet, little citrus. Everything really balances out nice. Love this. BVery (11390) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Bottle shared by Tom - thanks! Dark dense pour. Awesome aroma of bourbon, chocolate, and lemon. Palate is medium, and maybe a touch thin for the style. Tastes great - lots of raspberry, especially as it warms. mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - MAY 5, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a 1 1/2 finger head - similar to other dragon milk beers. Aroma is a tart raspberry and vanilla, with a slight hint of bourbon. Taste is a tart vanilla with roasted malts and a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium-thin. Overall, I liked this better than the vanilla chai variant, but the mouthfeel and overall experience is lacking. Worth trying, not chasing. blackflag321 (704) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2017
Shared bottle, poured to pint glass. I can’t help but to compare this to the original Dragon’s Milk (not head-to-head). Raspberry dominates the nose, then again on the first sip. Lemon doesn’t rally stand out. Hints of chocolate but I didn’t pick up any vanilla that is prominent in the original. Also, booziness of original is masked well by the fruit.

Bottle thanks to Stuu666. Pours just-clear dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate and raspberry. Not getting any lemon. Hints of vanilla, light roast. Taste is more of the same. Light sweet bourbon linger. Solid. ads135 (5053) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2017
A very good version of the Dragon’s Milk. The raspberry more than the lemon defines it. The berry blends with the chocolate like a real dessert beer. Perhaps not as well balanced as the original, but a nice varietal. drpimento (3798) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Aroma is pretty good - cocoa, raspberry, bit of roast, no lemon. Body is good. But for me, the raspberry didn’t go so well and gives an unpleasant medicinal aftertaste with a long finish. Strykzone (7715) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Very dark and a two finger tan head. Raspberries smelled from a distance. I wish I liked raspberries. Hopefully this one works for me. Just a little lemon in the nose. Raspberries are prominently tasted. Lactic and chocolate with roastiness. Toffee and earth. Just a little lemon. Some alcohol warming. This is quite filling and substantial and it has a rich creamy feel. arkurzynski (2461) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Black. Nose of roast and faint raspberry. Flavor is roasted malt with bitter chocolate, cocoa, light rapsberry, a touch of raspberry, faint wood, and vanilla.
