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 pour, tan head that fades to nice lacing. Smooth palate with nice roasted and chocolate flavoring with hint of coffee. Drinks smooth without leaving strong aftertaste.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours black with a average size frothy/fizzy light brown head. The head is mostly diminishing with a fair lacing. The aroma is of caramel and roasted malts along with some coffee. The flavor is mostly of coffee along with some caramel malts. The mouthfeel is medium to full with a creamy texture with soft carbonation.

ubamartian (155) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Pours dark, with a good tan head. Aroma of malts, molasses, and coffee/chocolate. The taste is a good blend of coffee, chocolate, and the malt, with a hint f hop bite. No alcohol flavors that I could detect. This a a very decent full stout that goes down very smooth. But just not quite there for me to like it a whole lot.

Great beer. Brought back from Michigan by a friend. Lovely midnight black body. Very smooth across the palate. Has that full, rich mouth feel from the oatmeal. Great roast and black malts fill the flavour. Exceptionally drinkable. Will have to add this to my shopping list on future cross-border adventures.

This was the surprise of the night for me -- VERY well brewed! This one inspires me to seek out New Holland more thoroughly.

Appearance: Black, black, black. Imposing in the glass.

Aroma: Oatmeal, for sure. Sweet and malty with a fine balance between the two.

Taste: Nice! Chocolate predominates, with a nice slight-hop presence. I take another sip. And another...

Palate: Smooth and spritzy, just the way I like it.

Overall: This is an excellent stout! Bravo, good friends at New Holland. Here’s one to revisit time and again. I’d love this with vanilla ice cream, or scallops for that matter. Or with my favorite movie.

Serving type: bottle

Bottle. Poured a opaque dark brown, with a chocolately head. Lacing observed. Nice malty aroma, some chocolate tones. Sweet, malty taste with some coffee and chocolate to it. Decent.
