Beer Review – New Holland Dragon’s Milk Reserve Orange Chocolate Stout

Here we go again! Yet another Dragon’s Milk expression from the fine folks at New Holland Brewing Company. This time around, the subject of our review is their Reserve Orange Chocolate Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout. Here’s what they have to say about it:

What would we pair with this beer?

Would we drink it again?
