New Holland The Poet poured a nice dark black colored body with a small tan head. The aroma was coffee and chocolate. The taste followed suite with the coffee and chocolate flavors with additional hints of nuts. Overall solid, drinkable, but not as good as others. jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Nice and roasty. Hints of coffee and chocolate. Only complaint is its a little sweet. Not terribly thick on the mouthfeel. Theres some hops in there too, which come out better when its warm. Overall its nice. Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
12 oz bottle. Nice, easy drinking stout. Lots of nice roasty malts, but it was a little watery. Kind of reminded me of Guinness, minus the Nitro pour. That’s a compliment, but I have to admit I was expecting something a little thicker. Pretty good. BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2007
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. aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2007

Dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee and wood smoke. Tasty, roasted oats, caramel, and a touch of smoke. Slight abv. finish. Not a bad stout, nothing too spectacular though. Headbanger (4020) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2007

Pours very dark, almost black, very little foam. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Tastes smokey, coffee flavor and a bit of chocolate, bitter aftertaste. A bit thinner than I expected, but pretty good. LinusStick (3497) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2007
I drank this colder than I should have, but even cold this beer is awesome. Pour was a dark black with a thin little tan head. Aroma of cream, chocolate and Werthers. Nice creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. Thick chocolate, with come coffee notes in the background. Nice bitter aftertaste. After drinking mostly wheats and pilseners for this beginning of summer, it was refreshing to drink something with some meat to it again.
