Default Dragons milk?

I am still working my way slowly through the 85 beer challenge at a local sports bar. The last episode was a beer called DRAGONS MILK...It is a 24 oz (I think) I had to chase this stuff with a glass of water to choke it down. I have never tasted beer this awful. One made my face numb and I was drunk enough there is NO WAY I coulda passed a breathalyzer.

The waitress told me I could pour it from the ceiling and no way would I get any kind of head on it. I poured it a little hard and it ran over. The taste was astringent,like it was infected or something.

Really? I had Dragon's Milk for the first time at a beer festival a few years ago and thought it was EXCELLENT.

It is a big beer for sure, but I thought it was damn tasty. I only drank a few oz of it, so I can't comment on the punch that 24oz would pack.

Like I said it was totally different than described I am serious that I think it may have been infected or something.....cost me $14.50 also!!!

You are talking about the New Holland one, right? I live right down the road from the brewpub and I found it to be a little sweet the one time I tried it, but I'd like to try it again sometime because if it had been a bit drier I think I would have REALLY liked it.

I think you might of had an off bottle or something. I've had it twice and think it's wonderful.

Mmm, New Holland Dragon's Milk is fantastic. I had it in Chicago when I was out there, and I wish I could get more.

I forgot to mention earlier too that mine had a decent head with good retention when I got it at the brewery.

Definitely sounds like a bum bottle. The few I've had were excellent albeit a little sweet.
