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.

Pours as black as you’d expect - not much head. Malt nose. Its finish was a bit too sweet for my liking, but I guess that it lived up to its billing lol.

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.

12 oz bottle. A great oatmeal stout the balance of flavors, hops malts is near perfection. the chocolate with the oatmeal is a real treat.

Looks like a stout should. Creamy. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Drink this.

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.

thehinge (283) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 6, 2005
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.

Aroma is like very sweet caramel, sugary, malty. Flavour is not too exciting, like watery coffee. Average beer.

smells like nuts, not very strong, same nutty watery taste, watery even for a sweet stout

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.
