Great beer and taste just like the regular dragon's milk but the chilies give it a kick that isnt too hot but not too mild either. Nice dark color very little head goes down fairly smooth then the chilies kick in so be careful of that. other than that an excellent beer that is worth trying

I think a worthy beer for #4,000.Pours a deep roasted walnut brown with a garnet hue,a beige colored creamy head atop.A great mix of chocolate,roasted nuts,molasses,and chili in the nose,all come together really well.Love the flavor profile with semi-sweet chocolate and roasted nuts/coffee standing out at the onset then melding into a sweetish molasses-like middle than quite a big shot of the chili de arbol really making a presence in the finish and it lingers.A great beer,Iam not the biggest fan of the "regular" bourbon barrel aged Dragons Milk but this is great,loved it.

Overall a fantastic addition to the dragons milk line. The chilies are integrated perfectly, bringing just the right amount of heat to an already solid ba stout. One of the better integrations of chilies I've had out of any midwest breweries, generally preferring west coast breweries use of chilies...but this one naoied it...dark, roasted, smoky, with a lingering heat....

A- pours a pitch black with a frothy khaki head of about 1 finger. Nice lacing

S- milk chocolate comes to mind first. Some barrel character. Faint peppery notes. Touch of vanilla. Light booze. The pepper aspect seems quite subdued on the nose to me.

T- the pepper is tempered no more as it comes at u like a banchee. Bourbon is picked up initially, then a layer of charred malts and smoke, then nothing but raw spice in te finish.

M- creamy, mid to full body. Lots of finish in the warmth, but mainly due to spice, not alcohol

O- a really quality pepper stout. More heat than a bomb or huna, but still brings some nice flavor to the table before it stings the taste buds
