COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout is sheer beer poetry. Let it warm to about 45 F and pour it into a glass to fully experience its rich, roasty flavors and hints of coffee and chocolate. One glass and you’ll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Bottle into pint glass, very deep ruby-brown color with light tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt sweetness, coffee, nuttiness and light earthiness. Taste adds oatmeal, cocoa, dark fruits and faint smoke. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with almost sour-like roast finish. Pretty straightforward, solid oatmeal stout.

SteveOrz85 (104) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Cloudy cool rainy day. Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip. Medium chilled. Two finger light tan fluffy head dissipates in about five minutes. Some moderate lacing. Beer is black. Light to medium roasted malt aromas with a touch of earthy yeasts. Taste is lightly bitter with some woody notes and a touch of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied beer with a oily to creamy texture. Average carbonation. Somewhat long but smooth roatsty lingering finish. Overall good beer. Not as creamy smooth as expected. Have had enjoyable experiences with several New Holland brews so far.

Great flavor profile without an overwhelming hop flavor. Roast and warm with a smooth finish.

HourGlass13 (328) - North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours a very dark redish brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is roast, and a hint of sweet spice. Taste is roast and a mild sweetness of chocolate and there is some coffee also in the mix though fairly muted. Medium body. Good brew.

M82 (407) - Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2015
Black pour, mahogany pinstriping when illuminated beneath a short, fading, mostly tight khaki head which creates a solid ring and pair of short peninsulas of lace

Aromas and flavors of coffee infused vanilla, treacle and caramel with biscuit accents on a medium body with a dense character cut with plenty of lively carbonation leading to smoke, damp wood and subtle soy sauce with nuances of slightly wonky umami - flash of creamed corn - chocolate in the finish and residual, ultimately a welcome heavy feel and richness considering the alc %

12 oz bottle code K184 09:43 served at 45º into 14.7 oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter
