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.

1 pt 6 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown and with a reddish hue and a diminished light brown head. Mild/smooth chocolate to liqourice blended aroma and with a slight roasted note. Flavour holds a mild warming alcohol feel, a slight burning roasted malt note and a smooth chocolate note. Finish has the same in a continued fashion. Quite nice but not really great.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a slight haze under a beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, over ripe fruit, and caramel, and so is the flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 2nd August 2008. 8.5% ABV version bottle. Very dark brown - black beer. Soft silky palate, low carbonation. Creamy malt with a rich fruity undertone. Pleasant oak and vanilla and minerals on the finish. Not too dry like so many barrel aged beers. Smooth and complex.

Travlr (26430) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2010
99% black with a thin tan head that settles quickly to leave minimal delicate lacing. Aroma of bourbon, wood and alcohol. Flavor has bourbon from start to finish that almost masks the beer taste - malts come through only in the beginning. Over the top.
