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!
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!

Hey Friends, today I’m checking out New Holland Brewing’s Dragon’s Milk Reserve Mocha Mint which is an 11% Imperial Stout with Chocolate, Mint and Coffee flavors. The Dragon’s Milk Reserve line is the line that New Holland uses to test out some of their flavored Dragon’s Milk, and they usually put out about 3 or 4 of these a year. Being an imperial stout that’s bourbon barrel aged, I’m expecting to get some bourbon flavors on the back end. Check out about Mocha Mint at http://newhollandbrew.com/beer/dragons-milk-reserve-4/
