Dragon's Milk


  • SRM Color : 57
  • Brewer: New Holland Brewery
  • Brewer's Description: The beer you hold in your hand, Dragon’s Milk Ale, is a crown jewel of New Holland Brewing Company. It is the unrivaled result of painstaking processes – both creative and scientific. We could tell you about the centuries-old tradition of the term, Dragon’s Milk, or we could tell you about the history, craftsmanship and challenges of what’s important, the beer inside this bottle. Roasty malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones, all dancing in an oak bath
  • Recommended Glassware: A Goblet
  • Russ' rating: 10 of 10
  • With the brew: Sartori
  • Comments: Pouring dark and aromatic this beer has a mysterious aspect that makes you salivate from the moment you crack the bottle. There is very little head at all, but the average size bubbles ( 0.5m - 0.7mm ) lace the glass the entire time, and I never felt like it was flat. The base flavor of this beer is a rich malt sweetness with hints of vanilla and the oak barrels it is aged in. It has a mouth feel that is lighter than most stouts, but packs an incredible rich complexity that is warm and exciting every single time it touches your lips.
