Unfortunately, its analogue is more Mithril shirt than Arkenstone and, as such, I can't imagine any serious renown stretching south of Dorwinion or east of the Iron Hills but this is probably, ultimately, unjust -- New Holland, much like the dwarf-smiths of Aglarond, are clearly doing as good of a job as anyone.

This beer was bottled and released as Dragon's Milk Reserve with Toasted Chilies
Poured from a 22oz. bomber into a tulip glass.
A- Dark black with a small light brown head that dissipates to a thin ring. When I tilt the glass I can see some light coming through on the edges and it has a reddish tint to it from the arbol peppers.
S- Smells very similar to regular Dragon's Milk with some light vanilla, dark cherry, some light oak and chocolate. Not really getting any of the pepper in the aroma.
T- Similar to regular Dragon's Milk but then the pepper hits you. Some light barrel qualities with light vanilla, oak, chocolate, and dark cherry. The pepper really comes in quickly and over takes all that though. It is hotter that I though it was going to be, I though arbol chilis were more smoky than spicy, guess I was wrong. On the finish your left with chocolate notes and a burn in the throat.
M- A bit light for such a big stout. I'd like to try Dragon's Milk before it's barrel aged but i don't know if the do that.
O- If you like a big pepper presence in your beers you should like this one. I like more subtle pepper notes so this one isn't quite up my alley. I look forward to the fall when the raspberry one comes out.
