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.

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 (1628) - 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.

pours black and muddy, creamy brown head. Aroma is heavyly malted, cookies, toasted chocolate. Flavor is well balanced great example of style, finishes lightly bitter with toasted malts. Meduim to full bodied oily and creamy softly carbonated. Overall very nice, cant wait to try it on tap.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle. Sweet milk chocolate aroma . Ruby-pitch pour is darker than normal and complimented by a short light brown head. Taste is sweetly roasted malt, strong milky chocolate. Roast is very restrained. Medium body. No real hops or bitterness. Decadent creaminess is this brew’s chief virtue, though it lacks in potency of flavor. Good fit to style, yet not worthy of a rave.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Nice black pour, Very thin, light beige head. The aroma is a strong roasted malt. This very full bodied beer has a strong coffee flavor through out. There finish starts off the smokey / roasted malt flavor. The smokey and malt grow until the long slow finish. Good Stout!

New Holland The Poet 12 oz bottle Recent bottling, prosed 10/06 Medium pour in a dimpled mug. Poured black with brown highlights, with a medium light brown frothy quickly diminishing head with a tiny lacing ring. Smelt of light roasted grain and coffee. Taste was upfront moderate bittersweet roast and nuts with mild chocolate feel followed by a nutty taste and light bitter coffee taste with a slightly sour soy sauce that transforms into an average length light dark chocolate finish with a perfumey hop kick. Mouthfeel was light to medium, oily, softly carbonated and slight astringency. Overall, a fairly easy going standard oatmeal stout, kinda light, simple and short, but drinkable in the summer.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2009 Beautiful black stout. Lots of roast flavor and aroma. Limited hop bitterness. Not overly sweet, which is a plus for me.
