Dragon's Milk.

Extra dark to black. Head is khaki in color. End of keg, so lots of head and lace.

Lots of bourbon. Bourbon, bourbon, bourbon... and a little bit of stout. Caramel, vanilla, roastiness, and sweetness.

Vanilla stout with loads of bourbon presence. Super oaky and semi-sweet with huge vanilla, salted caramel, butterscotch, and toasted coconut notes. Missing roasty qualities for the base stout. Nothing terribly obtrusive here, except the whiskey. This flavor needs a muzzle.

Sultry smooth and filled out mouthfeel with condensed carbonation. Very nice.

A good bourbon barrel stout. One of the forefathers.
