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.

Amazingly smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The aroma makes you almost hungry. One of my favorite Oatmeal Stouts, which is saying something. On tap, this is truly incredible. In a bottle, its still pretty awesome.

An excelent oatmeal stout, not as bitter as many stouts, but also not as dark a flavour. It has a lighter, nutter flavour.

Semi-opaque dark pour with a lightly colored khaki head. The aroma is oddly fruity with an equally odd absence of roast. Oooh that’s nice and different. The flavor is complex with some spice, fruit, licorice, floral and a delicate bitterness inside of a creamy textured body. Maybe its because I just had a different stout minutes before, but I cannot detect more than a very small hint of roasted barley. This almost defies the simple category of sweet or oatmeal stout. Much more complex than just roast & coffee or chocolate. This is special. I resist giving this 20 out of 20 but why not, this is as good & 3 dimensional as any trappiste ale.

Aroma is a pleasant mix of oatmeal and loads of bitter chocolate. Chocolate continues into the flavor and the oatmeal becomes more assertive in both the flavor and the ultra-creamy texture. It’s almost like velvet in a glass. Hops come in at the back end and linger. Phenomenal balance with sweetness from the oats and charred malt. Just wonderful.

The Poet. An Oatmeal stout from New Holland brewery in Holland, Michigan. Appearance dark brown/black with a creamy 1.5 finger head beige in color. Very nice lacing Aroma roasty malty slightly sweet with hint if chocolate. Not floral at all Taste very smooth and creamy malty chocolate flavor with just a slight coffee undertone. Minimal hops bitterness Mouthfeel smooth and cream, lightly carbonated Overall. One if the best oatmeal stouts I have had. Wish I could get it In Louisiana and would of brought more homes from Ohio ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
