Very good milk stout. Thin texture with earthy aroma. Sweet on the finish. Similar to a barleywine but not as strong.

love this beer. 11% abv goes unnoticed, which is nice. Nothing overpowering here just a smooth drinking stout full of flavor, great beer for a cold winter night

Very dark appearance with minimal head. Aroma has a slight vanilla smell but is not overly powerful. Taste is very smooth with hints of bourbon in the aftertaste. A very drinkable stout.

From the 12 oz. bottle with a bottling date of 09/13/17. Deep dark brown to jet black pour under a slowly fading mocha or tan head. Big baked chocolate sensations in the aroma along with dark toasted bread, Bourbon booze, a little cherry all with a low to no hop profile. Full smooth body. As this one warms the complex sweet chocolate and alcohol characteristics begin to merge. Still a richness to it. The bitterness at the end expresses more of a chocolate note. This has to be a sipper. shanoknowsfood (101) - Hawaii, USA - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle @ Whole Foods, Irvine, California. Dark as molasses. Smells of dark fruits, roast, mocha, dark chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Tastes of the same...absolutely delicious! Alcohol is well-hidden. One of the best Imperial Stouts i've ever had. Memorable, too, as it was the night before i got to see Grace VanderWaal in concert, for the first time, at The Troubadour, in West Hollywood, and it's what i celebrated the occasion with. This was the "Bourbon Barrel-aged" variety. sauvintipper (6) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 "Bourbon-Barrel Aged" Dragon's Milk 12oz bottled 8/30/2017 11% ABV poured into pilsner glass. I see this page has become a collection of several variants of this beer, but I am only reviewing this one that I have tasted. I am not getting 'boozy' if that means alcoholic or burning, but I get bourbon flavor without alcoholic burn and no bitter hops. I could guzzle this 11% ABV, but prefer to savor the flavors. Velvety smooth bourbon oak with vanilla malt on top of caramel and chocolate. Among my favorite stouts.

"Bourbon-Barrel Aged" Dragon's Milk. Bottle from Brewtopia. Dark dark brown with ring. Boozy vanilla earthy woody cola aroma. Medium-heavy vanilla chocolate coffee fig caramel sweetness with medium woody ashy bitterness with lots of residual vanilla chocolate and booze and fruit. Medium-heavy body low carbo. Decent enough. A sipper. But I prefer a regular imp stout with a nice aroma and texture, like Ten Fidy. Bill Becker (1809) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 10, 2017

I got this in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe!
This pours a very dark brown with reddish highlights and about a 1 finger head of tannish foam. Average head retention but it does have some nice lacing.
The smell is dominated by caramel malt but I also get some roasted malt, vanilla, and wood. Pretty nice nose.
The taste has notes of caramel and roasted malt, toffee, a real oaky flavour, and a bit of dark fruit but mostly caramel and toffee and it's hitting my taste buds nicely. Oh, now I'm noticing a bit of vanilla; it's stronger in the smell than in the taste.
The body is thinner than I expected though it is quite creamy, carbonation is on the low side, and the abv is hidden pretty well.
Because of it's smoothness, I find it quite drinkable.. a very nice American Strong Ale indeed. I'd drink it again. si_law (27) - - NOV 6, 2017

Where Purchased: 600ml bottle from Meijer in Michigan
Consumed: from a chalice
Aroma: Smells sugary, chocolaty and slightly boozy.
Appearance : filtered dark brown that light cannot penetrate. Decent head at the beginning that disappears quick into no lacing.
Taste: VERY sweet. Hints of smoke and bourbon. Slight booze taste.
Palate : heavy body. Sweet lingering aftertaste. Low carbonation.
Overall: it was a full bodied and complex beer. I would not have suspected it was a beer with 11% ABV. I was glad to try but probably will not buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.
