Dragon's Milk Reserve Maple Oak is an 11% Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout from New Holland Brewing Company in Holland, Michigan. This is the latest in New Holland's Dragon's Milk Reserve…
The third in New Holland’s Dragon’s Milk Reserve line for 2018 is Banana and Coconut. I have to admit I was a little skeptical when I heard that banana was involved. Much like my opinion on coconut, bananas can be good when done right, but there’s a fine line between being good and too much, which will almost always put you squarely into “yuck” territory for me. Well today I’ll be taking a look at Banana Coconut Dragon’s Milk Reserve, which is New Holland’s premiere bourbon barrel aged stout. With a much classier new label design, does the beer inside match the facelift that was provided on the outside? Watch and find out more!(more…)
New Holland’s first Dragon’s Milk Reserve for 2018 is Cherry Chocolate, following last year’s Mocha Mint, and Salted Caramel (which I’ll link to below). In the meantime, New Holland’s commercial description for this beer is: “Introducing the next addition to our Dragon’s Milk Reserve series… Cherry Chocolate! We decided to combine these two classic flavors with the rich and creamy taste of Dragon’s Milk to create a delightfully smooth treat.”
Is it a worth addition to the Dragon’s Milk reserve line? There’s no better way to find out than to watch!

Fresh on the heels of their last Dragon’s Milk Reserve release, New Holland is now unleashing a blast of salted caramel on the masses. Salted caramel (the candy) is one of those things that I didn’t realize I loved until after I had it, and after having a salted caramel porter from Pigeon Hill in Muskegon, I knew that it was also a flavor in beer that I loved. Who does it better? Pigeon Hill with their porter, or New Holland with this bourbon barrel aged stout? Keep watching to find out!
