04/26/14 From bottle. Started out on the wrong foot. I was eating & this just didn't enhance the meal at all. Once I was finished & it had warmed a bit, it showed a multi-layered profile. The most impressive taste to me was the toffee. I've heard this characteristic used many times but it has eluded me...until this bottle. Very smooth with a strange mix of oiliness but not particularly thick. Next time I'll get a piece of sharp cheese to play off the best of this well made brew. Hold the presses...10%? A very deceptive 10%.

New Holland's Dragon's Milk is a stout I've wanted to try for some time. I'm not disappointed.

Bought a single bottle off the shelf of a local libations carrier. It poured black as night with a nice foamy, tan head. It smells of vanilla and burnt oak barrels. The bourbon is very much present. Taste-wise there's a real burnt flavor mixed with vanilla, hops, and prominent is the bourbon flavor.

This is an extremely rich-flavored stout. It's a special occasion kind of beer. Like old friends getting together, or a brisk fall evening by the fire, or just to enjoy on a Friday night with tunes spinning on the turntable, like I'm doing right now.
