COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragon’s 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: Pours a deep brown with a rusty copper hue and a dense tan film of head. Toasted oaky aroma with some mildly sweet raisin notes and soft milk chocolate. Silky palate. The flavor displays some toasted malts that mesh with soft bourbon/boozy notes giving it a soft sweetness of toasted marshmallows. Tannic woody notes in the mild toasted plum middle. A decent oak aged ale that remains fairly balanced and not overly boozy.

22oz bottle. Pours a deep brown body with a reddish tint to it. Finger-width, tan, creamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a good amount of streaky lacing. Aroma is really enjoyable and way better than I was anticipating. Lots going on here, but led by a vast amount of fat malts. Very rich chocolate, bourbon prunes/dates/figs, woody roasts, dense toffees, molasses, and a light milky vanilla. Flavor is thick up front with some nice, subtle flavors as well. Rich and fat caramels, toffees, and chocolate malts up front before some molasses, vanilla bean coffee, and a light bourbon wood comes in. More prunes, dates, and raisin as well as some smoke, rich malty chocolate-toffee, bourbon-wood in the finish. Dry after a full and creamy body with a long aftertaste of dry roasts/light smoke, rich toffees and chocolate, and a pruney/vanilla bourbon wood. Overall, a really rich and sweet stong ale. Lots of chocolate and rich toffees, but a nice balance of fruits, smoke, and a touch of bourbon wood. It may seem jumbled at times, but I’m really enjoying the richness of this right now. Very tasty.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #65 of 90. On tap at New Holland in Holland, MI. Pours black with ruby edge. Lost of coffee, toffee, caramel and bourbon. This was my hands down favorite from NH. Very good!

Sample from July Beer Club Meeting. Clear, dark cola-like appearance. Thin head, aroma of roasted barley, a little nutty. Flavor is a little fruity. Silky deliciousness. Something irresistible about this.

Aroma of Jim Beam. Thin black pour, thin tan head. Tasteful bourbon flavor, not insistent, with horehound and roasted malt on the edges. Oaky prune finish. Considering I’m not a bourbon fan, I’m not crazy about it, but it’s certainly palatable even for me. I appreciate how well crafted it is.

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.

puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottled. I had the regular Dragon’s Milk but it blew up in my closet, thoroughly soaking the wall, floor, and every bottle around it. Hmmm. Aroma’s 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
