Dragon's Milk stout pours black into the glass with a small tan head. The foam disappears quickly leaving only a few spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma has nice notes of oak, vanilla and bourbon. A touch of chocolate and roast malt is also detected.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth with mild carbonation. The flavor has nice chocolate notes along with oak, vanilla and bourbon. It finishes a little dry with some dark fruit notes. Once gone the chocolate and oak lingers on the palate.

This beer needs time to warm to enjoy. The flavors emerge from the cold.
