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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color that isn’t entirely opaque. The mocha-colored head is nice and creamy, and about two fingers high. It fades down to about a half finger after a while, and leaves nice rings of lacing on the glass. S: Wow, this is sweet. There isn’t much bourbon on the nose...but there is a solid oak presence, giving off very strong vanilla notes. Beneath the vanilla are strong chocolate and molasses tones. Aromatically, it strikes me as an enjoyable-yet-straightforward dessert beer. T: There is a bourbon presence here, but it’s pretty basic...the vanilla notes are massively bold yet they lack the additional subtleties of a BCBS or Parabola to make them stand out. I also notice touches of chocolate; otherwise, this is more or less a vanilla/tannin bomb. Even a single 12 oz bottle can become wearisome to drink. M: Quite sweet, yet with a drying, tannic finish. I’d actually reckon it’s a bit too tannic on the back end, verging into mild harshness. I could also use a bit more body to properly support how syrupy the texture is. O: It’s not undrinkable, however its sweetness is way too fatiguing. Even worse, the beer itself seems designed to showcase the barrel notes, but they’re far too basic to really succeed at that, either. For about 6 oz, I thought this was pretty good; for the other 6 oz, I couldn’t wait for it to end. So, if you’re gonna try it, make sure you split it with a friend, and don’t expect BCBS.

QcBeer (183) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
Bottled 02/02/2015 Un visuel noir, foncé, tirant légèrement vers le rouge vin à la lumière! Une crème c’est déjà propagé sur le rebord du verre. Une petite mousse dissipé au centre qui tournoie avec cette effervescence. Au nez, c’est le bourbon qui domine les effluves. Le cacao est bien présent avec une percée de vanille, suivi de bois brûlé, de noisette et de cuivreux. En bouche c’est l’offrande la plus chaleureuse que j’ai eu depuis belle lurette! Un bourbon chocolaté avec noisette grillé. ça réchauffe l’intérieur d’une tendresse incomparable! wow! C’est huileux, majestueux avec une effervescence tout juste à point! Le 2 ans et 2 mois d’attente ne lui a pas fait de tord! La plaisance en bouche de ce liquide est incroyable. La chaleur du bourbon dans l’estomac veut vous envoyer au tapis, mais son goût est bien maîtrisé, délicat et délicieux car on le goûte vraiment sans passé à l’offensive dévastateur des autres arômes! Le chocolat au lait y est très bien présenté sans excès de noisette grillé qui ne fait que rehaussé la saveur et non la dominer! Une somptueuse finale dans un mélange de bourbon et de chocolat au lait qui laisse un arrière goût chaleureux et très laiteux!

Totalmente negra, espuma marrom de boa formação e persistência. Leite e Bourbon bem nítidos no aroma, mais o café do que chocolate. Bourbon continua no paladar intenso mas sem aparentar os 11%. Boa!
