The Poet ~ New Holland

Appearance: dark blacks and browns; more clear along the edges with tobacco and espresso crema hues. Tan head fades into a broken bubbly film bordered by a broken bubbly collar. Swirls okay.

Nose: pitted dark fruits with a nip of tartness in the back; faint. Dry chocolate graham crackers underneath. A touch dusty. Powdered chocolate, chocolate bark. Burnt brittle ashy wood. Dryness of roasted oats which are ironically more dry than toasted; again – dusty.

Palate: medium mouthfeel; bit thin for an oatmeal stout. Raisins and prunes first with chocolate underneath which mingles well with the dark fruit meatiness. Dry powdered chocolate atop the tongue. Tartness in the back. Still a bit simple for a big bold oatmeal stout. Further quaffing reveals chocolate powdered oats. Growing nondescript bitterness in breath and top middle of tongue.

Final Thoughts: not too shabby but overall not a slap in the face of tastebud blowing flavor. Solid and dependable if a bit simple, I’d nonetheless quaff of the poet’s designs once again.
