3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 nice stout that grew on me. smooth with good blend of flsvors. my only knock is that it is a bit thin for a stout - borderline porter.

Pours a dark chocolatey brown with a small tan head. The nose is coffe and chocolate with a twinge of licorice. The flavor follows through with nice coffee and slight nuttiness. Nice little hoppy bitterness on the finish.

Bottle. Pours clear dark brown, big lasting creamy light brown head and great lacing. aroma of chocolate, burnt malt, coffee. Lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average to lively fine carbonation and a too brief too light bitter finish.

Dark black/brown color. Small light brown head. The dry bitter taste is not as good as its aroma. Coffee and dark chocolate with a pretty full body. Thick and creamy texture with some staying power. Decent brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is like very sweet caramel, sugary, malty. Flavour is not too exciting, like watery coffee. Average beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a large off white head.
Lacing is good. Aroma is reminiscent of grass.
Mouthfeel is medium....not real heavy.
Taste has a heavy hint of coffee and just a little bitter in the end. I don’t taste the chocolate that New Holland touts.
This is just so-so.....I wouldn’t write home about it.

OK stout - nothing to talk about. Definate coffee aroma and taste. Not much of a stout, more of a bland porter. Not a repeat buy.
