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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color that isnít 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 isnít 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 itís 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. Iíd actually reckon itís 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: Itís not undrinkable, however its sweetness is way too fatiguing. Even worse, the beer itself seems designed to showcase the barrel notes, but theyíre 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 couldnít wait for it to end. So, if youíre gonna try it, make sure you split it with a friend, and donít expect BCBS.

Taste is vanilla and bourbon with oak, chocolate, caramel, and a little roast. Some alcohol in the finish. Full body. Soft carbonation. Silk smooth mouthfeel. Mouthfeel isnít as thick as some imperial stouts but it is very pleasing.

andrewje41 (3276) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2017
22 oz bottle poured, as the first beer of 2017. Pairing Michigan beer with Michigan football for some good luck. Bottled 10/14/16. Dark red tinted black pour with a lasting tan cream head. A nice, chocolatey aroma. Incredible. Creamy, milky vanilla chocolate flavor, very smooth bourbon addition. So much chocolate here. An amazing drink. Worth the wait for this to finally reach WA. Very nice stout.

treign (30) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Poured from a bomber. Aroma is a nice mix of bourbon, vanilla and roasted malt. Appearance is dark black with a thin light brown head, just what youíd expect from an imperial stout. Taste is very similar to aroma with a little more chocolate and a nice amount of heat from the alcohol. The mouthfeel is a little watery compared to other imperials but is still nice and lends to the smooth flavor. Overall really enjoyed this beer.
