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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
