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.

This beer poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma of this beer smelled of booze, oak, and caramel and roasted malts, with hints of chocolate. The taste of this beer is smooth. The aroma is very deceiving, its a balanced beer, very smooth. The mouthfeel is full, more of a thicker mouthfeel. All in all its very drinkable.
