Reem brought me some lovely WI beer including:
- Ale Asylum's Ballistic (YUM)
- but also Sprecher's Hard Root Beer which is not yum. Be forewarned.
- Locally I've enjoyed Short's Good Humans. And probably some other stuff.
Dragon's Milk Stout from New Holland (Holland, MI) on tap somewhere and I couldn't stand it and never tried it again. Until recently when I bought a bottle of it, deciding to give it another shot. UM, DELICIOUS. What happened the first time? I'm glad I tried it again.
It looks like coca-cola but a little darker. Not much to smell at first, but as it warmed the bourbon, vanilla, and toasted notes came out. Very strong flavors. I gave my dad a taste, and he described it accurately by exclaiming, "WOAH!! Jesus." The bourbon and vanilla notes for sure stand out, along with dark fruits and boozy booze.
It's creamy and thick, and drinkable considering the 10% alcohol by volume and strong flavors. It's probably one to sip and to share.
Dragon's Milk Stout, I'm glad I didn't give up on you. A-
