New Holland Dragon’s Milk Oak Barrel Ale Beer Review

Article by FisterRoboto of

Brewed by New Holland Brewing Co.

$9.99/Four Pack

Style: American Stout

10.00% ABV

Serve at 45-50 Degrees

Enjoyed from a DFH Signature Glass

A: Black opaque color with one finger of thin, beige head. Very little lacing.

S: Ugh. Booze and more booze. If you can past the booze, there’s hints of vanilla, cocoa, and bourbon.

T: Bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and more booze. Between the booze and the sweetness, I’ll be surprised if I get through this.

M: Just what you would expect. So alcohol-heavy and syrupy that it’s overpowering.

O: I take a lot of crap for this, but I still haven’t had a single brew from New Holland that’s impressed me at all. I set myself up for disappointment every time. I really hoped this was going to be good, but the sweetness, the syrupy mouth-feel, and the undrinkable astringency ruined this quickly. This is about the point I just stop wasting my time with New Holland. I was about to write them off after I tried their pumpkin ale last fall. It’s hard to create a pumpkin ale that tastes like cologne, but NH pulled it off. Pass on this one.

  1. Can’t say that I’ve seen much from New Holland around here – looks like I’m not missing much.
