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 youíll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Draft... on a trip to The Great American Ballpark. A stand that sells microbrews at a baseball game canít be a bad thing. This beer is a dark brown in color-almost black. It was a foamy chocolate brown head. The aroma is a toasty coffee with a bit of sweet sugar. This beer is loaded with sweet chocolate and coffee flavors. Delicious.

Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, coffee and banana (!). Poured a nice black, with a good creamy tan head that slowly receded into a creamy cap. Left nice lacing. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate. Medium body with creamy and oily texture. Soft carbonation. Unique finish that is sweet chocolate, then mild coffee in a long mildly bitter finish. A very nice stout. I will definitely buy again. A very good job by New Holland in what I consider to be a very unique stout. Served in a Pint.

Bottle, nice rich aromas, touches of cream and oats, Pours fairly dark wtih a mild lacing of creamy head. Nice dark creamy, light roasted malts, finishes slightly bitter and dry. Not as sweet as I was thinking which was nice to me. Its not a bad brew at all, pretty easy to drink I could drink more than one of these.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, and some coffee. Then an astringent irony taste kills everything in itís path. Seriously this chalky taste on my tongue sucks and is borderline drain pour.

12 oz. bottle pours a dark brown with some ruby illuminating at the edges. Head is rather spare, tan, but durable with some decent lace. Distinct espresso and dark chocolate, some earthiness and nuttiness in the background. Medium body and carbonation, mild astringency. Burnt sugar and treacle are offset by a piney bitterness. Finishes fairly dry for a sweet stout, but not at all unpleasant.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Chocolate-covered raisins in a bottle. Itís that chewy. It would be good at a movie theater. It was fine in my living room.

A generous amount of roasted malt is evident in the aroma. Dry oats, light coffee, milk chocolate, and moderate banana scents contribute to a very enticing aroma. Dark, very dark brown pour producing a huge slowly diminishing tan head and wavy lacing. Creamy and rather smooth, but the body is slightly lighter than it should be. Nice aftertaste with a bitter finish. Flavor is decent but is not as welcoming as the friendly aroma. Bitter roasted malt, milk sugar and smooth oats. Light chocolate and cream. Pretty tasty but itís slightly off, perhaps itís too bitter.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours black with a average size frothy/fizzy light brown head. The head is mostly diminishing with a fair lacing. The aroma is of caramel and roasted malts along with some coffee. The flavor is mostly of coffee along with some caramel malts. The mouthfeel is medium to full with a creamy texture with soft carbonation.

New Holland The Poet poured a nice dark black colored body with a small tan head. The aroma was coffee and chocolate. The taste followed suite with the coffee and chocolate flavors with additional hints of nuts. Overall solid, drinkable, but not as good as others.

Nice and roasty. Hints of coffee and chocolate. Only complaint is its a little sweet. Not terribly thick on the mouthfeel. Theres some hops in there too, which come out better when its warm. Overall its nice.
