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.

Iím actually quite impressed with this. Itís everything a good stout should be. Good color, slightly sweet aroma, and a good coffee flavor. Bravo to New Holland!

Appearance: pours black and lets no light though. Very good head that slowly disappears. Amora: dark chocolate and coffee. Taste: pretty sweet flavor with some chocolate and oats. Palate: medium body with good carbonation. Sweet up front that gives way to a slightly bitter finish. Overall: this beer is very good. Another good effort from New Holland. Will buy again.

Pours black with a tint of red...no head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, molasses...some ash and maybe some earth hops. Flavor is sweet and the palate is thin and kind of boring. Has potential and is an easy drinker.

The commerical description states "stout is sheer beer poetry." Well whoever wrote must be reading Poetry for Dummies, this stuff is really disappointing. The utter taste of oatmeal isnít in a good way. almost tastes like to way too much Oatmeal in the outmeal stout. Coffee and chocolate notes are really subtle. Boo!!!!

Beer pours a nice black with a decent two finger off white head light tan head. The head really sticks around on this beer. The nose starts with a very nice milk chocolate, followed by some slight bitter espresso notes and roasted barley notes. There is also a nice bitter dark chocolate note as well. The beer mainly follows the nose, but the best part is the tremendous mouth feel. The beer is only 5.2% and it feels like a 10% behemoth. Excellent!

Smells of oats, milk chocolate, coffee, black licorice, light roasted malts and some hops. Dense black color with a sticky tan head. Tastes sweet and roasty at the same time but has an odd sour and salty aftertaste. Strangely, itís a drink that makes you thirsty. Itís a little thin and weak for my taste. Palate is not very good. I should have stuck to my guns on this one - I never trust a stout under 8% ABV.

Dark black and clear in color with a foamy white head that hugs the edge of the glass. Roasted barley and chocolate in the nose, a touch of shoe polish. Smooth mouth-feel, light in body, light-medium carbonation, with a lasting finish. Rich and malty with chocolate and roasted barley flavors. Finishes dry and roasted. A nice oatmeal stout, dry (not sure why itís categorized as a sweet stout) with a good dance of chocolate and roasted flavors.
