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.

Smells malty with notes of roasted barley and chocolate malt. Pours dark, but not exceptional with thin white head. Taste is nicely balance with coffee, carmel, chocolate, and oak. Could use a little more body, but enjoyable over all.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle from Raleigh WBF. Thought I tried the oak aged version (listed separately on this site), but seems like Dragonís Milk is always oak aged so Iím rating this version. Pours a dark brown with some ruby highlights topped by a thin, creamy, tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate (perhaps more so than any other beer Iíve rated to date), Baileyís Irish Cream, bourbon, oak. Taste is similar with loads of creamy milk chocolate, a spicy bourbon alcohol bite, vanilla ice cream, and a dry, oaky finish. Really just an awesome beer.

2008 bottle; thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours dark cola brown with foamy off-white head. Nose is roast, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and oaky excellence. Flavor is decadent: chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, roast, lingering dark sweetness- borderline dark fruit with lingering vanilla. Thoroughly enjoyable medium-bodied stout.

randolphjj (116) - Raymore, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2009
great black color with ruby red in the tint. Super smooth flavor thatís really strong with the vanilla and oak. I like this one. Itís like sipping a nice cognac in a way -- like what Iíd like to sit and enjoy the way you would a cognac, without the heavy alcohol taste and a great depth of oaky flavor.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with ruby hues, fully receding tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is milky, chocolate, oak and brown malts. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with lively carbonation. Tasty, but not amazing.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - APR 26, 2009
22oz. bottle served in a snifter. Poured a dark reddish brown with a quickly dissipating head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, also a bit fruity. A bit of hops come out in the aroma as it warms. More chocolate in the flavor. Medium to full bodied. Vanilla flavors from the oak. I really got the flavor of a good English toffee from this beer. Fairly long finish with more vanilla notes from the oak. Very easy drinking for 9%.

The nose is a very nice smokey vanilla.Pours very dark with a small head. Taste is good.Smokey ,roasty, dark chocolate, and the body is a bit lighter than i would have liked. Still this is a very tasty ale.
