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 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.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
12 oz bottle. Nice, easy drinking stout. Lots of nice roasty malts, but it was a little watery. Kind of reminded me of Guinness, minus the Nitro pour. That’s a compliment, but I have to admit I was expecting something a little thicker. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 nice stout that grew on me. smooth with good blend of flsvors. my only knock is that it is a bit thin for a stout - borderline porter.

Dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee and wood smoke. Tasty, roasted oats, caramel, and a touch of smoke. Slight abv. finish. Not a bad stout, nothing too spectacular though.

Pours very dark, almost black, very little foam. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Tastes smokey, coffee flavor and a bit of chocolate, bitter aftertaste. A bit thinner than I expected, but pretty good.
