Very light and nicely hopped. Seems like a blend of styles, primarily American Brown and Milk Stout. I’m not sure what I would have classified it as. At any rate it’s really drinkable and has a great tanginess. Dark brown in color with amber hues. Thin but lasting off white head. Aromas of caramel, toast, and a pinch of citrus hops. Sweet, slightly nutty flavor with a lactic like tangy hop finish. Very, very easy to drink. Doesn’t seem to fit the wee heavy category largely because it is way too easy to drink…but it is fairly strong so watch out for it.

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ (12/23/10) - from notes:

Pours a basic brown with a slightly off-white head and minimal lace. Smell is very faint with toffee, caramel grains and herbal. Taste is roasty malt grain, trace chocolate and some flowery hop. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin and watery, probably due to a fatigued palette from previous IPAs. Overall, listed here as a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy; however, Gabe indicated that was a previous incarnation as this is more appropriately a Brown Ale. Decent, but nothing special.

Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. Dense off white head. Sweet aroma of malt, caramel and some toasted notes. Taste was sweet, with some roasted aromas. Nutty, flavourful, smooth balanced by a slight hop bitterness. Quite full bodied. Very easy to drink. Not your typical Wee Heavy, but it's a nice beer nonetheless.

This ale is a dark ale. My buddy and I both got a glass of this on tap last night when we went to La Cav Du Vin for a beer before going to a concert at the Grog Shop. The bartetender told us that this ale was lactic and had some milk like qualities to it and also that it was barrel aged. This beer is dark brown color. Not much of a head upon being drawn from the tap, but the white head that was there was very creamy looking. The small head did stick around for awhile and left very some nice lacing in my glass. This beer had a zangy, tangy, hoppy and citrus like aroma. Not an overly strong smell, but it is noticeable. It had a sweet, slightly milky taste with hints of nut and of course some hops in there as well and just a touch of bitterness. This beer has a very smooth, creamy, and sort of lactic mouthfeel with mild carbonation. I found this beer to be very easy to drink, especially considering its 9% ABV. I will try this one again for sure.

On-tap at Triple Rock

A: The pour is a dark amber or light brown color (maybe a mix of the two) with a creamy off-white head.

S: Begins with some citrus hops, likely from the dry-hopping. There's a bit of alcohol to it and a pretty nice toasted malt, toffee, and caramel note. Some minor influence of chocolate and roast.

T: There's a decent hop bitterness to go along with what is a sturdy brown ale base. A mild toasted malt character, along with toffee, and bitter chocolate. There is a bit of a pine flavor from the hops as well.

M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation.

D: An interesting beer that was good to drink and easy to do so as well. Might be worth having a pint of.

On tap at Triple Rock.

Came in a standard pint with very little head. Color was very dark brown, verging on stout-black. Aroma of hops and chocolate. Taste was where this beer excels, loads of caramel, chocolate, slight espresso taste, very nice balanced hop bitterness with some floral hop flavor. If not for having to drive out of town we would have had another round....definately a dangerous beer considering the ABV and drinkability. Great job on this beer.

a: deep black with brown highlights; light off-white foam covers the top of the glass but couldn't quite be called head; light lace on the glass

s: light coffee and chocolate malts; some sweet grainy malts; light bitter hop tinge; biscuit

t: first sweet grain and caramel malts; light roasted coffee and dark chocolate; toffee; citrus and bitter hop finish

m: a little overcarbed but nice feel that is just a little sticky and heavy but not too cloying or anything

d: really showcases the full range of malt flavors

Had this one from the source (3x rock). Oatmeal stout colored, which is extremely dark for a scotch ale, could not see through the beer. Nice, thin oatmeal head after the beer settled. Scent of lightly toasted malts. Taste of light malts with a bit of bread crust. Mouthfeel was excellent, very little presence of alcohol. Incredibly smooth scotch ale, probably could have had a couple more.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:

This is a dark brown colored beer with tiny amounts of spotty lacing sticking to the glass. The nose is low on firepower; some pine comes out of it. The taste throws me off because I was expecting a sweet tasting beer and I was dealt a hoppy beer instead. It starts of piney with some citrus thrown in. There is just a wee bit of peat and smoke hiding underneath the barrage of hops. As the beer warms, you can sense more malt and peat. It's clean, has a medium mouthfeel, and it is an easy drinker.

Solid as a rock beer, though not exactly what I was looking for per style. Dragon's Milk tastes much more like an India Dark Ale than a Wee Heavy.
