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.

Powerful stuff. Strong-smelling, near black pour. There's definitely a hint of the bourbon. Slightly fizzy - fizzier than most stouts - but without a whole lot of head.

Bottle. Pitch black with a quickly fading light beige foamy head. Aroma is of dark fruits, chocolate, liquorice, figs, biscuit. Taste is of dark chocolate, figs, dark fruits, liquorice, vanilla, caramel. Sticky oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Bomber from the Hwy 2 road trip. Aroma is chocolate, wood, mint, licorice, earth, raisin, vanilla. Pours black with a thin tan head. Taste is sweet and woody, with flavors matching the aroma; bourbon is noticeable. Too much oak influence in both aroma and flavor for me to really get into this.

Straight forward black Imperial Stout, full body, bourbon undertones, roast, chocolate and strong alcohol are all parts of a well brewed beer. Long time coming me trying Dragon’s Milk.

Rating #2531 - 2016.05.05 - 2.5oz sample at BrewExpo at CBC in Philly. Pours an opaque black beauty with a rich tan foam. Aroma is heavy roast malt, mild smoke, toffee , molasses, vanilla,oak. Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, lots of burnt sugar, toffee, bourbon vanilla, blackstrap molasses. Delish.

Sample 2/4 at Yard House, Las Vegas. Pours hazy black with a small, foamy, beige head. The aroma contains roasted malt, milk, coffee (with milk), cream, dark chocolate, vanilla, licorice, dark fruits, anise and bourbon. It tastes medium sweet and medium bitter. Full body, oily texture, soft fizzy carbonation. Deep flavour and complex aroma, great stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2017 Bouteille millésime 2015, embouteillée le 03/02/2016, bue après 17 mois. Étiquettée sous Bourbon barrel. Robe brune très foncée presque noire avec un mince voile de mousse. Le liquide semble un peu aqueux. Arômes de crème de noisettes, biscuit gaufré au chocolat, raisin secs et vanille. Traces de malt torréfié, grains de café et de minéraux. En bouche, chocolat et noisettes sont à l’avant-plan, sans tomber dans l’excès. Un café sucré se joint par la suite avec un restant d’alcool boisé ainsi que du raisins et pruneaux séchés, mais ces derniers sont tout de même subtils. De la vanille flotte au-dessus des ces saveurs. Le malt torréfié se présente à la toute fin pour laisser une faible amertume qui est elle-même atténuée par un goût de beignet au chocolat et de caramel. Texture huileuse et très lisse, corps moyennement rond qui perd du poids à cause de la texture. Malgré les saveurs qui tendent vers le sucre, la bière est très facile à boire et facile d’approche. Malgré tout, un meilleur dosage du malt torréfié aurait pu l’amener à un niveau supérieur et de complexité.

On tap at the source during GLBTQ. Crew in tow. Tulip glass. Dark black in color with minimal tan head. Aroma features chocolate and coffee notes. Maybe a light hint of scotch-like peat. Taste is sweet and boozy but not with a traditional bourbon barrel aged alcohol burn. Some dark fruit like raisins coming through. Plenty of dark chocolate at the finish. Lingers well. Doesn’t feel all that different from an imperial stout despite the bourbon barrel aged claims. Good rendition but this dragon feels tamed.

Great taste - can really pick up the bourbon flavor. Would recommend to any stout lover. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
