I had warning this one was a little spicy, to the point of distraction. Planning ahead, I paired it with habañero chicken so so that it might lessen any overwhelming chili heat. I love heat, just not in my drink.

Got this, a 2014 vintage, as a double-deuce from my aunt. Cellared for two months. Poured into traditional pint glass.

Looks like Dragon Milk, smells like Dragon Milk. So far, so good. No chili on the nose, just bourbony stouty goodness. Either this bottle mellowed over the last two months or the habañeros did the trick, there's not a lot of heat here. More and more Bourbon as the glass warms.

Definite sipper, just like Dragon's Milk should be. Have another bottle still in the cellar, going to pop that next year and report back any difference.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Black with a nice tan half finger head that sets for a while. Light lacing.

S: Chiles out the wazoo combined with biscuity malts.

T: Hot hot hot! Malts slide in with chocolate. But the chiles dominate this brew like a plague. If you like your beers on the hot side, this one's for you. But it was just too hot for me.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: I would've given Dragon's Milk a higher score, but the chiles killed it. Would love to try it minus the chiles. The malts and chocolate were great. Letting it settle a bit calms down the spiciness.
