3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 %
