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.

I really enjoyed this one. It has a sweetness that is very pleasant, and doesnít have that cloying taste/palate that some stouts can have. Very easy drinking for a stout.

Pours almost black with a short fairly long lasting cream head. Aroma of mild coffee and a little chocolate. Relatively thin mouth feel but very smooth taste of coffee and chocolate. Not TOO sweet (as compared to say a mild stout). Very easy to drink but not too complicated

12 oz. bottle. Poured black with a thick tan head. Aroma of light coffee, roasted malts and subtle chocolate. Taste was sweet and mild coffee flavored.

zubblwump (44) - Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2016
Dark, with medium head. Pours so thick the last couple drops looked like syrup. Smell is more hoppy than I expected from a stout. Feels as thick in the mouth as it looked pouring. Taste is very good too, smooth and very little bitterness. Not quite Dragonís Milk, but so far New Holland is batting 1.000 with me.

Itís just too bitter. Itís a lovely chocolate malt aroma, it pours into this beautifully dark and rocky beer. Then youíre just overwhelmed with this bitterness. Iíve had other stouts Iíve liked, but I canít get into this one.

Dark pour. Nice head. Smooth going down. Not a ton of chocolate taste but a great tasting stout.
