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.

12oz bottle to tulip pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a red tint, more amber than black, if that makes since. Low carbonation and a tan had that doesnt last, but does leave laces on the glass. Nose is toasted malt, some dark chocolate and coffee. Most of what is expected with this style. Flavor is very aggresive! Bitter with dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and basically replicating the nose, but amplified. Milkshake like mouthfeel but slightly lighter body than most of the oatmeal stouts I have tried, and im not sure if thats a good thing or bad yet. Finish is bitter and dry; making it very drinkable and enjoyable even after a pint, probably due to the balance this brew has. This is something I could session and recommend

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

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.
