12 ounce can poured into a tumbler style pint glass.
Canned 10/14/22

L: Cloudy amber, large antique-white head, foam is spongy with good retention and leaves sticky lace.
S: Weak nose, light bourbon barrel, fruity esters, dried white grape.
T: Tastes darker than it looks, bourbon barrel, dried fruit, toasted malt, mild bitterness, tangy woody hops, some spicy notes.
M: Medium body, smooth and creamy, low-ish carbonation.
O: Interesting kind of like a barrel aged Cream Ale, would drink a second if I had one.

Dragon's Milk White New Holland Brewing Stout White / Golden

Milky malt sweetness with creamy barrel wood style flavor's.. Super smooth and silky feel, a white stout is very interesting because you're constantly fooled by the color.. (what am I drinking?!!) Very easy drinking for 1:: a stout and 2: Barrel aged.

Appearance: Pours a completely clear, medium orange/golden color with a strong white head. SRM of 9-10. (4.00)

Aroma: Strong aromas of coffee roast, bittersweet chocolate and cocoa. (3.75)

Flavor: Strong flavors of coffee roast, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Some coffee roast, bitterness lingers. (3.75)

Feel: Medium-bodied, Moderate carbonation. Bitter finish. (3.75)

Compared to Whole Hog White Stout 1/2023: Pours darker, stronger head. Stronger aromas. More coffee roast. More bitter with coffee.

Overall: A decent white stout here. Lots of coffee roast actually which I didn't expect. Not as much vanilla or bourbon as other have mentioned. Roasty and drinks like a coffee stout to me, but slightly more flavors evolve as it warms. (Rating: 3.82)

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Dark golden yellow color with nice creamy white head that fades pretty fast. Decent lacing. The smell is a bit nondescript but there is come vanilla and a hint of bourbon. Taste of vanilla, apricot, and some coffee and cream. Satisfying feel.

Pours a golden orange color with a thin but retentive head.

Smells very yeasty and grainy.

Wow, tastes nothing like it smells.

Very vanilla flavor in the beginning that quickly fades into a coffee flavor. Not espresso but coffee. Through to the finish. Leaves no lacing.

From an Advent calendar. Canned July 21st 2022.

Pours a hazy amber with a good head of foam that shrinks rather quickly. Still, it has some pretty good lacing.

Smells of vanilla, light coffee, light nose from the barrel aging.

Vanilla and coffee are at the forefront, light Bourbon, pretty darn sweet, the finish has a decent burst of the Bourbon.

Light bodied, carbonation seems to low.

Not something that I would drink again.

Bought this beer at Bottle Craft in San Diego. 12 oz can, poured into a snifter. 2.99 for a single. Canned 11/30/21, consumed 10/25/22.

A&S: Looks like a hazy IPA, burnt orange-colored opaque beer with unfiltered chunks and carbonation. Head pours a half finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Smells like a sweet oatmeal stout. Nutty, sweet malts, raisins, and caramel.

T&M: Taste similar to the smell with some addition of some spice in the finish. Thick and chewy on the palate.

Overall: I enjoyed the concept of this beer. This doesn't happen often for me, but, in my mind, this beer is very comparable (outside of appearance) to Keweenaw Brewing Company's Widow Maker.

Poured a dark gold color with an inch or white foam head. Unlike other reviewers, I noted pleasant aroma of vanilla, chocolate, and some coffee. Taste followed the aroma with a mellow conclusion, no bitterness. Felt a bit creamy, on the cusp of a little too much for my liking, but didn't detract. Good beer to sip and would buy again.

Purchased by my wife as part of Father’s Day beer haul 2022. She got it because I’ve never had a white stout. I love dragons milk original though so it might be hard to compare to that. Today I drove 6 hours from New Orleans to Memphis and I’m plum tuckered out. I went to order something at the hotel bar and the bartender looked at his watch and said to me “it’s 10:01, we closed at 10 and cannot serve you”. Said like a Snide little 23 year old dick. So I’m up here with the dragons milk white and a cheap plastic hotel cup. Looks like it’s a dark golden first pee of the morning kind of color with a bright white half inch head. This beer has zero smell. I tried swirling the cup and still nothing. Maybe it’s the stupid little 6 oz cup. I don’t know. Well it’s certainly not getting too many points for scent. Now a taste. This tastes a bit like a severely taste impaired Guinness but with way less char and dark toasty flavors. It’s like a watered down stout. There’s not a lot of flavor popping here. Nothing that makes it stand out or gives it a unique taste. I can’t even believe this stuff was BA. I get no bourbon traces whatsoever. Mouthfeel is thin and bubbly. Overall I’m definitely not impressed. Maybe this was a gimmick beer? I’ll definitely stick with original DM because that is truly a delicious and flavorfully strong brew.
