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.

Tap at Mccormicks in Wayzata. Black with medium tan head with excellent lacing. Smells roasted and sweet. Sugary, boozy, bitter and then sweet. Good body and decent balance.

(Bottle). Better as it warms. Pours a brown-black complexion with little head and lacing. Aroma of charred malt. Flavors of toasted malt with hop balance. Thin but smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. A- Chocolate, caramel, cake, subtle smoke. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T-Cocoa, slightly watery, subtle smoke. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Pretty fair but not extraordinary. A bit more roasty and smoky notes than Iíd have presumed would be in here and not near as sweet. Overall it drank fine but wasnít a wowzer.

Quoth the raven, "Nevermore." As black as the Nightís Plutonian shore, The Poet ought to be the drink of choice for mourning narrators who want only to be left with their misery over love lost but instead have to converse with ravens who insists on perching above their chamber doors. Also, this may be a good choice if you enjoy Oatmeal Stouts. Rich, velvety smooth, and bittersweet palate. Notes of dark chocolate, cream, coffee, roasted barley, and black licorice. Itís at its best when slightly warm. Another fantastic New Holland Stout.

slowrunner77 (8356) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Nice stout...not quite as good as Iíd hoped, but as advertised - subtle hints of coffee and chocolate, and a nice firm malt bill. Smooth if not big bodied.

tfontana (373) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass. Aroma is light roasted malts, milk chocolate, dark fruits, coffee. Appearance is dark brown with some reddish-orange at the edges, 1/2 finger width foamy light brown head that dissipates quickly and fair lacing. Taste has more roasted quality than aroma, moderately strong sweet and bitter balance, more chocolate dominant than coffee. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick texture, above average carbonation and pleasant long bitter finish. Overall, this is smooth, rich and delicious without being too heavy.

One of the best oatmeal stouts EVER! Pours a dark beer with a small head. Chocolate, coffee and roast taste. Very good dark brew and very drinkable as opposed most other dark stouts!!!

Nice oatmeal stout. Lower alcohol helps make it pretty drinkable and a very versatile beer for pairing with food.
