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.

Black color with smallish creamy tan head. Aroma is creamy, malty, notes of currants. Flavor is full of roasted barley, hints of vanilla, with a mix of bitter malts and bitter hops in the finish.

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2006
dark pour w/ hints of reds and a nice full tan creamy head w/ some nice lace. Aroma is very nice, some sweet fruits fig and possibly plum w/ a good roasty malt and some light coffee and chocolates. Palate is lightly creamy fairly well coated. Flavor is a chocolate w/ hints of coffee and some light sweet sugars. Very sweet. a good sweet stout but not a style I like very much.

Aroma is like very sweet caramel, sugary, malty. Flavour is not too exciting, like watery coffee. Average beer.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Looks like a promising stout. Dark with a fairly dense creamy head. Smells like roasty yeast with hints of sweet coffee. The palate is a little thin for a stout, though not unpleasant. Sweet and roasty, I canít taste much of the chocolate hint they claim is in here, but still decent. Not a lot of dimensions to the flavor, but not at all unpleasant, very drinkable.

Deep black with ruby highlights (in bright sunlight), a thin head faded but lingered above as a tan halo. Striking aromas as coffee with light fruitiness (but the fruits just seem to get in the way of the great coffee roastiness). Awesome depth of flavor with the persistent coffee persona beneath light sweetness within a full body that carries the roasts to their full potential. Like this review, New Holland Poet was quite a mouthful.

Brigadier (3225) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2006
12 oz bottle from Woodmans

Creamy tan head protected a deep black body. Scents of chocolate, oatmeal, grains and roastd coffee beans. First impression was of oatmeal, grain, barley and coffee. Soon after picked up smoky and chocolately tones. Mildly chewy. Dry, smooth creamy finish. Very pleasant to drink.

12 oz bottle. Thin white lacing, fell in on itself. Sweet, smokey flavor. A hint of alcohol. Actually, quite tasty.Itís worth a shot!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Very creamy in the mouth, tasting of roasted barley, dark malt, coffee, and a drop of chocolate. Pretty much how it smells, too. Hints of smoke. Nice dark brown body with a short-lived brown head.

On tap at The Map Room. Nearly opaque with a small head. Roasted malts and coffee with hints of smoked wood. Finishes with a subtle hop kick. A solid stout.
