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 beer with thin tan head. Hints of chocolate and coffee at first but seemed to weaken as the beer warmed a little. Overall nice flavor.

hopmelt (152) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours almost black, finger and a half creamy dense tan head, lots of lacing. Aroma chocolate, roast, toasty, slight coffee and earthy hops. Taste creamy milk chocolate, lactose sweetness, roast, hint of coffee and bready malt. Mouthfeel fuller body, lower carbonation, very creamy, sweet finish. Overall tasty, well made, perhaps not my favorite style, but this is a classic example.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap @ Pi Pizzeria. Very dark brown pour with a khaki head. Smells a bit smokey and ashy. Lots of roasted malt, some coffee grounds, and a bit of dark chocolate. There’s a pleasant bitterness to the flavor, mostly coffee and roast. Semi-sweet chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and lots of ash. Mild smoke and a touch of oatmeal cookie.

At a tasting, smallish creamy head, very dark brown but not completely opaque colour, aroma of cocoa, chocolate, some charred wood and toasted bread, flavour of dark toasted bread, roasted coffee and some chocolate., quite mellow. Really nice and enjoyable.

on tap @ Flipdaddy’s / Union KY --- Opaque dark brown with a thin head cover and small splotches of lace. Taste is roasted caramel malt that grows in the palate, adding bitter chocolate to balance in the finish. A really solid stout, big well beyond the abv, almost too much for food, great on its own merits. Recommended.

ROBC3366 (533) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours dark brown with small, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of piney hops, roasted malt, sour cream and some coffee. Body is full and slightly crisp. Taste is of roasted malt, burnt grain, coffee, brown sugar, herbal hops and some sour notes. Finish is long and bittersweet. On the whole it is good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A phenom in the oatmeal stout world. I absolutely love this beer and it is my favorite from New Holland.

Bottle. Date unknown. Pours jet black with thin tan head. Aroma is a bit of coffee, some floral notes. I pick up some acidity in the flavor (orange?) and some biscuit/bready notes as well. Oatmeal adds nice depth though it’s drier and more bitter than a traditional sweet stout.
