COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragonís Milk is a 17th century term used to describe the strong beer usually reserved for royalty. This strong ale was aged in oak for over 120 days. The aging process extracts flavors from the wood, which contribute to its complex character. Hints of bourbon flavor perfectly compliment its roasted malts to produce a beer fit for a King.

Bottle shared by DuffmanSW. Pours a coffee black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sour milk, raisins, alcohol, burnt caramel and a bit of salt. Flavor is a touch sour with coffee, caramel, molasses, and a bitter chocolate finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation.

Bottled. I had the regular Dragonís Milk but it blew up in my closet, thoroughly soaking the wall, floor, and every bottle around it. Hmmm. Aromaís got molasses and veggies, light milk chocolate, a little bit of licorice. Bit, complex, oaky flavor, minor chalky notes. A touch of bourbon/whiskey. Not too strong in the whiskey department, thankfully, but a bit weak in general.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle, 22oz. An almost clear, ruby brown beer with a minimal-sized beige head. A bit weak on the aroma maybe, with coffee, caramel, roasted malts, dried fruits and hints of alcohol. Slighlty oxidized flavor, roasted malts, coffee, caramel, dried fruits, chocolate and some alcohol. Oxidation in a good way. Warming and full-bodied. Roasted, chocolate flavored finish. A really nice one, bearing the oxidation well. 090619

tastes like slightly bittersweet vanilla cocoa bourbon roasty caramel thick with a touch of soy sauce - but not too much soy sauce! tasty. oak comes through - a tad boozy. smells like bourbon. This is a lot like an imperial stout, but I like it, and imperial stouts arenít usually my thing - it is intense but not too intense.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2010 Draft. Pours black with small tan head that sticks around. Aroma of vanilla, malt, caramel, bourbon, wood, alcohol, and roast. Also malt, vanilla, bourbon, roast, caramel flavor with some chocolate. Full motor oil body, sweet, and smooth. Complex, well-balanced, and rich. Re-Rate, 12/22/10: Bottle from Hair of the Dog. The notes are pretty much the same, but I didnít quite like it as much as I did before. The body is lighter and it almost seemed like oxidation was starting to set in. Chcolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, and a little bourbon. Nice beer.

Bottle compliments of DuffmanSW shared with Mspindler. Thanks PUNKRKR for hooking Sean up with this. Pours dark black with nice 1/2 inch head. Aroma of alcohol, sourness, raisins, cocoa. Taste is creamy, malty, roasty, salty, some hints of vanilla. Medium carbonation. Overall this was really interesting in a good way.

I have no idea how this is different from the oak aged Dragons Milk since this is oak aged. Anyway, 12oz bottle, high gravity series, 19įP & 8.5%ABV. Served in my New Holand flared pint glass. Indra was right, this is some tasty stuff. I forget how the nose started out, but it is now like a rum cake/banana bread with some cinnamon on top, maybe a bit of chocolate. There is some hot alcohol at the end, but just enough to let you know it is a big beer. Thick, viscous body with a clean, albiet somewhat "hot" finish. Every big as thick as a big Impy stout. The barrel cleans up the huge mess of sweetness and the sweetness, in turn, keeps the oak barrel from taking over. This really is a nice beer. I hope that I donít revisit it and find it a lesser beer once the effects of tonights intoxicants, a great meal, a fair amount of red wine and some hoppy beers, wear off. Good shit.

12oz bottle pours a deep dark brown bordering on black and lets a good bit of light through reddish edges. The initial creamy thin head dissipates to almost nothing after a few minutes and completely disappears after five. Nice charred oak and warm vanilla fills the nose and pushes up the anticipation. Medium-bodied, creamy texture of a milk stout, initially very oaky, then a sharp blast of vanill that fades into alcohol and light chocolate with a bitter, peppery aftertaste. The carbonation is apparent, but soft and not intrusive. As others have said, this is a nice brew, but didnít quite live up to the anticipation of an oak-aged milk stout.
