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 black, not much head. Roasted coffee slight chocolate. Not really a lot going on. Slight bitter finish. Overall not bad, but not great. I have a feeling this could be better on draft.

pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is malt, biscuit, and just a hint of coffee. Thick creamy mouth feel. Taste is malty, faintly sweet. Just a hint of bitter on a quick finish. Good beer!

I’ve always liked this beer, good roasted coffee flavor, would prefer a little thicker, but overall a good drinkable stout.

Bonus bottle from Punkrkr27, thanks Steve... Pours black with a light mocha head.. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, some roasted malts and coffee...Flavor is dark chocolate, roasted malts and I can’t really pick up much else.. Lots of carbonation...Not sweet like I expected but it is pretty decent. Would have thought I was drinking a porter.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours near black with a touch of brown head. Nose is fairly potent roasted barley and oat with a little bitter hops and tangy, almost raisiny fruit. Flavor is much less tangy and quite sweet (for a stout), with a very good balance of roastiness/bitterness to the sweet oatmeal malt. Finish is weak and what little there is comes as sweetness.Medium body and very drinkable. Good stuff and great representation of a sweet oatmeal stout.

3.5
BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours an oily black with a darker cappuccino head. Aroma is coffee, creamy, chocolate, caramel, warm buttery toffee, weak anise/licorice. Taste is dry dark chocolate, black coffee, then the oats and creaminess, lots of malt and a slight note of darker stone fruits. Overall a very drinkable oatmeal 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.

Truly enjoyed this delicious stout from New Holland Brewery. Great dark brown to black colored pour, with a thin disappearing cream/tan colored head. A nice oat balance with malt backbone, roasted wheat flavors dominate. Great pour!
