New Holland Brewing Company Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout

Thank you to Outsider Public Relations and New Holland Brewing Company. Here we have New Holland Brewing Company Dragon’s Milk Barrel-Aged Stout, 11% ABV. This stout, made in Holland, Michigan. This stout pours a deep dark black color with a three-and-a-half thick tan/khaki head. It’s very sticky and slow. The aroma is roast with sweet notes of boozy coffee and bitter notes. The taste is sweet, roasted with a boozy bourbon coffee taste that grows as you pass over your tongue. The is a slight milk flavor that is faint at best. Dragon’s Milk Stout finishes with a semi-sweet roasted milk flavor. The aftertaste is strong, boozy and a little be toasty. This stout is a big beer with lots of big flavors to it. It’s good, A- good. Not something you’d have more than one of or something you start off a drinking session with, it would be the last. But it is a solid barrel-aged stout. Are there better ones out there? Yes, but not many. I would put this in the top 10 stouts. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
