Bottle. Pours a jet black with a 1/4 inch dark tan head that quickly dissipates. Excellent lacing on the glass as well. The aroma is sweet. Caramel, vanilla, oak from the barrel, chocolate malt, and just a hint of bourbon. The aroma is fairly subdued, and does not overwhelm you. The flavor is delicious. Plenty of flavors here. Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, sweet fruits. A bit on the sweet side, but it does not linger long on the palate. A very warming beer. This is probably the best offering from New Holland I have tried.

Aquired via trade with robertdoesbeer.

The beer is a nice deep black with a hint of light permeating the edges. A tan head sits atop the brew. There are coffee and chocolate flavors as well as the oak coming through. Malts abound in this beer. the alcohol shows a little as it warms. Drinkable, but take it slow. This is one dragon that bites.
