3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

Cloudy cool rainy day. Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip. Medium chilled. Two finger light tan fluffy head dissipates in about five minutes. Some moderate lacing. Beer is black. Light to medium roasted malt aromas with a touch of earthy yeasts. Taste is lightly bitter with some woody notes and a touch of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied beer with a oily to creamy texture. Average carbonation. Somewhat long but smooth roatsty lingering finish. Overall good beer. Not as creamy smooth as expected. Have had enjoyable experiences with several New Holland brews so far.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour, mahogany pinstriping when illuminated beneath a short, fading, mostly tight khaki head which creates a solid ring and pair of short peninsulas of lace
Aromas and flavors of coffee infused vanilla, treacle and caramel with biscuit accents on a medium body with a dense character cut with plenty of lively carbonation leading to smoke, damp wood and subtle soy sauce with nuances of slightly wonky umami - flash of creamed corn - chocolate in the finish and residual, ultimately a welcome heavy feel and richness considering the alc %
