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

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. This oatmeal stout poured a super dark brown color with a thin, bubbly, dark tan head that quickly faded away. No lace. The aroma consisted of milk chocolate, roasted malts, a note of mocha coffee, and also a slight hint of hops at the backend. The flavor was made up of strong, rich milk chocolate, coffee, and just a hint of roast. The roasted malt definately took a backseat to the chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and lightly creamy with minimal carbonation, finishing just slightly bitter. An excellent stout.

bottle - Pours very dark brown with a one finger head. The aroma has plenty of chocolate and dark roast malt. Similar flavors are abundant and very tasty. Medium with some light hops in the finish, this stout is very good.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy chestnut brown with a handsome, beige head that leaves some lacework. Thereís a weak aroma of roasted malt. Medium body with lightly roasted malt notes and a dry, slightly bitter finish. A VERY thin finish. Disappointing. 150807

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2007
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.

SturmWulf (65) - USA - AUG 3, 2007
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.
