look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: translucent brown obsidian on the pour; glass of black beer with slightly translucent edges; initial ivory finger of head settles into a milky film with a thicker collar; a few motes of lace speckle the glass
S: malty milky sugars prominent; background espresso and chocolate; overlaying oakiness
T: bittered and dark roasted malts and winey, oaky woodnotes dominate; for a stout, very subdued chocolate and espresso flavors. On the dry oaky finish, bitter hops and barrel-aging flavors are interrupted by spikes of sweet anise
M: light-bodied; there is mild sweetness at the start, but it turns and finishes mostly dry - some sugars poke in; some of the 10% abv slips through; relatively light-bodied for a stout
O: enjoyed this much more in 2013 - lotsa of oak and bourbon, the chocolate character was sweeter and denser, while retaining a distinct milkiness.

A: Pours almost black with a small head that dissipates quickly. Looks pretty much like a bourbon barrel stout should look.
S: Chocolate, some coffee, maybe a bit of vanilla. Oddly, not much in the way of bourbon.
T: Just a bit of bourbon with more coffee and chocolate. Drinks very smoothly, even at 11 percent ABV.
M: Very good, but not great; smooth and silky with some alcohol sting late.
O: Very good representation of the style. It's less "bourbony" than many of the other beers in this genre, but drinking Dragon's Milk is a good experience overall.
