12 oz. bottle. Vintage 2016. 11.5% ABV per the label. Pours a thick, well retained beige head, with extensive lacing, over a clear, brownish black (SRM 35) body.......nose is heavy roasted malts, with chocolate, light coffee notes, heavy dried fruits with plum, fig, dried cherry notes, light herbal hops, balance to the malts......taste is moderately sweet with brown sugar, light molasses, toffee/caramel notes, dried fruits including plum, fig, cherry, later hints of umami, finishing almost dry with light herbal hop bitterness, balance to the malts......mouth feel, heavy, sticky body, alcohol warmth present, carbonation makes for creaminess. This is a tiny bit on the sweet side of the style, but is otherwise nicely complex in both aroma and flavor, and is easy drinking despite the overall richness. BJCP 9/3/16/4/8

Bottle with $8.99 price tag, I think approaching 2 years old aged at basement temperature. Black, somewhat syrupy pour; tan head. Nose shows chocolate, roast, raisin, and something a little astringent in there as it warmed (alcohol, I suppose, but sharper). Flavor sweet, caramel, chocolate, roast, alcohol. Medium-full body, too sticky for me to love. Too much alcohol character to be world-class, for sure. Decent though.

Frothmeister (759) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2015
1pt 6fl oz bottle. Vintage year 2013. You have to love that first giant stout of the year when the weather is finally cold enough to want such a thing. In the cellar since September of 2013. Pours black out of the bottle with an audible "glug" and leaves a one finger beige head. On the nose, big raisin notes, molasses, butterscotch, dark chocolate, dark rum, and brandy. I guess what Im trying to say is, it smells incredible. Full bodied with the sweetness you would expect from an imperial stout with again raisin up front, molasses, coffee, light earthiness, light caramel and espresso that leads into huge roasty malt notes, light ash, espresso with a very long finish that kind of diminishes into strong dark roast coffee notes. A repeat buy for sure.

This was a strong stout which didnt have any overly dominant flavors. The alcohol was masked nearly completely. The flavor was roasted but not burnt. Darker fruit, chocolate mostly. Not too creamy.

ebone1988 (1669) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest. Aroma is licorice, roasted malt. Appearance is dark brown, khaki head, smoke. Taste is balanced, lots of licorice, roasted malt, cocoa. Mouthfeel is boozy, too carbonated, but oily and thick. Overall, still the best New Holland beer Ive had.

Bottle from Rays in Tosa. Black pour with a tan head. Nose has initially big raisin, with chocolate and caramel. Some molasses. Not bad in the blend. Taste is of sweet caramel, chocolate, rum raisin ... and alcohol. Later down in the glass it gets a burnt caramel alcoholly slant with marshmallow to it. Medium to full bodied. With alcohol. Finishes nicely bittersweet with an alcohol kicker. As ever with New Holland, pieces are there, but the overall fails. A bit more chocolate and a bit less alcohol, and this is quite good. 13.7

12 oz single bottle from Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits in Muscatine, poured into a snifter. Vigorous pour results in a black appearance with a small khaki head that lingers. Aroma of dark malts, molasses, dark chocolate, roast, light vanilla, light espresso, a touch of dark fruits and a slight hint of alcohol at times. Similar flavor, rich, dark and roasted with a moderately sweet, light bitter finish. Full body with a smooth, creamy feel and soft carbonation. Good stuff, better than their Dragons Milk IMO. Give Dr. Johns Gris-Gris album a spin while you sip on this one.
