What a nice surprise! On a road trip, stopped Father's Day at 6 Autumns, attached to the Ramada Inn off I-69 in Angola, Indiana for the evening. Nice beer menu, I asked the resident "beer-meister" what he would recommend based on my comment that I liked Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter and Imperial Stout. He gave me a couple samples (30 beers on tap) and I loved this one especially for the bourbon finish. The next day I stopped at a store in town and bought a bottle to bring home to Georgia.
Serving type: on-tap

Served on tap in a 10 ounce glass.
Perfect two fingers of head and a lighter black brownish color.
This is a complex stout and the tasting notes keep changing throughout depending on temperature and glass breathability.
Upon first sip it almost tastes like coconut oil, or somehow this exact chemical compound is formed during the brewing process. I really thought I was drinking a super concentrated form of coconut water for a few seconds, until the aftertaste hits.
This stout is not too heavy, infact it's somewhat light and bubbly, just a smidge heavier than a dark carbonated porter.
This is a boozy tasting stout at 10% but well worth the burn.
The aftertaste is that of a perfectly aged bourbon whiskey. Reminded me a lot of Johhny Walker Green.
Overall an excellent offering from New Holland, although the name Dragons Milk is somewhat deceiving because this isn't really too sweet like a lower ABV% milk stout would taste, and Dragon Stout (the legendary stout from Jamaica) has already used this name for years.
Serving type: nitro-tap
