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.

Benzai (16708) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle [from trade with mista] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, medium sized quite quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma is malts, chocolate, some bourbon, a bit sweetish and a hint of vanilla. Taste malts, milk chocolate, a touch of vanilla, bourbon, initially sweetish flavours but bitter as well in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Nice one!

brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 16, 2010
A: The pour is a nice dark brown color with some ruby highlights and a thin tan colored head. S: The nose is a bit off. Some roasted and sweet malts along with some fruits (perhaps cherries), vanilla, and a slight tinge of tartness. T: This definitely has a bit of an off flavor. A noticeable tartness which isn’t supposed to be there, along with some chocolate, dark fruit, oak, and sweet malts. M: The body is medium with a low level of carbonation. D: I’d been interested in trying this one for awhile, but I’m glad I didn’t go out of my way. Perhaps this was just an off bottle, but even if that wasn’t the case, this just was not that great.

Ferris (16538) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle - Boozy bourbon with some nice dark fruit and roasted malts. Deep maroon with a rich beige head. Bourbon and boozy, dates and dark fruit and some chocolate. Very decent and great value.

bhensonb (15768) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle from Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Very dark brown color (some garnet) with a fine, high beige head. Aromas of dark roast malt and chocolate? Also dark stone fruit. Medium plus body with near creamy carbonation. A mild ale partaking of some aspects of stout and porter - like I think I taste coffee. There’s a touch of wood. Finishes towards astringent, with very decent bitter to counteract the malt. Wood seems to bite a bit as time goes on.

djd07 (15547) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is roasted chocolate and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a bourbon and oak flavor with a nice roasty finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well, a very impressive imperial stout from New Holland.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Mastikim. Thanks troubles. 2013 bottle. Black with a small tan head. Roasty aroma with coffee, some cocoa and bourbon notes. Sweet flavor with bourbon, chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla. Full-bodied, but not thick enough. A bit too boozy.
