I tried this at Lunar in the 'burbs while celebrating my bachelor party. It came to me in a 9 oz snifter.
A - Black as tar with a dark brown creamy head that shows really nice retention and leaves a lot of lace on the glass.
S - Dark and creamy to my nose, this is full of dark chocolate candy notes and strangely enough I smell peanut butter.
T - Rich chocolatey ovaltine! This is sweet and chocolatey with some nice supporting hops. Tasty as hell. This is like drinking Hershey's dark chocolate syrup straight up.
M - As full bodied as motor oil, this is creamy, silky, smooth, and really thick.
D - Outstanding! This is a killer beer! I love the name, the high ABV is nice, and the flavors are damn tasty.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
