Chucks66 (85) - Beachwood, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Dark brown color, thick looking, malty and chocolaty aroma, thinner bodied than expected, drinks more like a porter than a stout, very nice chocolate and roasty flavors, mild hop flavor.

Dark brown body with a small tan head that quickly fades. The aroma is roasted coffee, dark chocolate and molases. The flavor is roast, slightly burnt, light chocolate and brown sugar. Medium body with a slightly thin and watery texture.

Stine (1774) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 Thick black color, with a brown, disappearing head. Apparently New Holland has ingratiated itself with an entirely uninspiring brand of poetry. Bland aromas and flavors characterized by old coffee grounds and bitter dark chocolate, a bit. Just dull, and slightly soapy and astringent. Gritty, ugly.

Bottle. Solid black color with a laced brown head. A nice and strong roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and light fruit (sour) aroma. Rich coating malts with a long chocolate finish. Initially sweet, finishs dry, with milk chocolate.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2006
pours black and muddy, creamy brown head. Aroma is heavyly malted, cookies, toasted chocolate. Flavor is well balanced great example of style, finishes lightly bitter with toasted malts. Meduim to full bodied oily and creamy softly carbonated. Overall very nice, cant wait to try it on tap.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle. Sweet milk chocolate aroma . Ruby-pitch pour is darker than normal and complimented by a short light brown head. Taste is sweetly roasted malt, strong milky chocolate. Roast is very restrained. Medium body. No real hops or bitterness. Decadent creaminess is this brews chief virtue, though it lacks in potency of flavor. Good fit to style, yet not worthy of a rave.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Nice black pour, Very thin, light beige head. The aroma is a strong roasted malt. This very full bodied beer has a strong coffee flavor through out. There finish starts off the smokey / roasted malt flavor. The smokey and malt grow until the long slow finish. Good Stout!
