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.

Draught at the brew pub. Dark reddish-brown color. Red around the edges. Head was tan and left some lace on the glass. Light roasty aroma with a touch of malty cereal grain. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes with a roasty bitterness.

Chucks66 (85) - Beachwood, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Dark brown color, thick looking, malty and chocolaty aroma, thinner bodied than expected, drinks more like a porter than a stout, very nice chocolate and roasty flavors, mild hop flavor.

Dark brown body with a small tan head that quickly fades. The aroma is roasted coffee, dark chocolate and molases. The flavor is roast, slightly burnt, light chocolate and brown sugar. Medium body with a slightly thin and watery texture.

Stine (1599) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 Thick black color, with a brown, disappearing head. Apparently New Holland has ingratiated itself with an entirely uninspiring brand of poetry. Bland aromas and flavors characterized by old coffee grounds and bitter dark chocolate, a bit. Just dull, and slightly soapy and astringent. Gritty, ugly.

Bottle. Solid black color with a laced brown head. A nice and strong roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and light fruit (sour) aroma. Rich coating malts with a long chocolate finish. Initially sweet, finishs dry, with milk chocolate.
