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.

Pours from the bottle to a dark brown qwith thin off-white head and no lacing. Fortunately, appearance was the only thing lacking with this beer. Aroma was a strong, pleasant malty chocolate-oatmeal biscuit scent. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and a little chewy, and the taste carried over where the nose left off. Rounded to a good long sweet finish. Interesting label too.

12 oz. bottle. Poured black with a thick tan head. Aroma of light coffee, roasted malts and subtle chocolate. Taste was sweet and mild coffee flavored.

Dark, with medium head. Pours so thick the last couple drops looked like syrup. Smell is more hoppy than I expected from a stout. Feels as thick in the mouth as it looked pouring. Taste is very good too, smooth and very little bitterness. Not quite Dragonís Milk, but so far New Holland is batting 1.000 with me.

Itís just too bitter. Itís a lovely chocolate malt aroma, it pours into this beautifully dark and rocky beer. Then youíre just overwhelmed with this bitterness. Iíve had other stouts Iíve liked, but I canít get into this one.

Dark pour. Nice head. Smooth going down. Not a ton of chocolate taste but a great tasting stout.

Poured into tulip glass, dark brown with thin head. Full bodied and creamy, roasty malt flavor and finish. Did not pick up much chocolate in the taste.

Deep brown body with a light tan head. Aroma reminiscent of pine. Taste is rich with oat and a chocolate but not bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reebtogi (5347) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours almost black in color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a milk chocolate sweetness with a light roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Overall, this is a solid stout, but there are better ones out there.

Rich and roasted well with a touch of cocoa nib and a light espresso bean. Smooth and a tad sweet with a full body and a creamy mouthfeel. Roasted and robust malt throughout with a heavy cocoa on the back end. Creamy in the middle.
