New Holland "Dragons Milk"
New Holland Brewing Company - Holland, Michigan USA
American Strong Ale (ABV 10%)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 4.1/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a very deep dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy medium brown head that was mostly diminishing leaving behind a decent amount of residue lying on top allowing for some really excellent lacing to form that totally sheeted the glass.

The aroma was sweet and malty of roasted caramel malts, a very slight indication of a resin hop and a mild sweet yeast with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, oak and a hint of bourbon.

It tasted malty sweet with a note of caramel and a touch of milk chocolate in the beginning, then a mild bitterness set in with a nice large dose of dark fruit and a bit of oak with a very large alcohol ending. The flavor lingered for a long duration, with the alcohol presence being the most dominant as time went on.

Mouthfeel was a few shades past medium in body with a dry yet syrupy texture and having a mild carbonation.

Overall a brew I suggest everyone should try at least once. It's big, bold and fruity with a very smooth, drinkable alcohol presence and had just a touch of a woody tinge at the end.
