I chose the perfect beer to celebrate #NationalBeerDay I was gifted this for my birthday last week and heard nothing but good things and BAY-BEEEE it did not disappoint. 🎶these are a few of my favorite things🎶 I don’t do ice coffee often but if I did, it would this beer. No point in drinking cold coffee if it is not 11% ABV. Dragon’s Milk is dark, toasty (and roasty), rich and heavy! Everything I want in a man, but A👏🏾DAMN👏🏾 BEER👏🏾! Men disappoint, so give me the warmth and familiarity bourbon barrel-aged stout anytime. The smell is perfect and the notes of vanilla and caramel sweeten it ever so subtly. Issa win! #badandboozypod #craftbeerlife #stouts #dragonsmilk #gimmemore #beerreviews

Pretty good! No single part overwhelms. Coffee gets along with stout; stout gets along with chocolate; chocolate gets along with coffee. All are good friends. Alcohol comes in high, but not hot. More of a warming effect that is quite pleasant.

All in all, a good beer as expected.

Love this stuff, but turn on the snooze factor, because this one will put ya to sleep! I think I'm taking a liking to bourbon barrel aged milk stouts, aside from their alcohol contents, their bountiful complex flavors, and who doesn't love mocha/coffee aromas? I'll tell you who, no one, and if they don't, politely dispose of them because you don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
Not as much chocolate to the mid section and finish of this one but none the less, a barrel essence that I thoroughly enjoy.

Just a bit overdone with the bourbon taste. I enjoy a balanced bourbon stout, but I prefer the stout still taste like a stout
