Dragon’s Milk Ale is actually a stout, rather than an ale, that has been aged in oak barrels and is from New Holland Brewing’s “High Gravity” line. It’s got a medium to heavy body, and the nose is vanilla, sweetened milk, and alcohol. There’s more vanilla, sweet roasty malts, and alcohol in the middle, and a smooth, weighty finish, warming you with more alcohol. This is a big beer at 10% ABV, and you can taste it all the way through. It’s an interesting beer. You certainly get the bourbon-like profile of an oak-aged beer, but it may have a little too much influence for my taste.
I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
