12 oz bottle poured into a New Holland imperial pint.
5.2% ABV, 37 IBUs.
Pairings: Mushrooms, beef, blooming, soft-ripened cheeses, and chocolate.

A - Despite being a brooding, black-colored beer, clarity is visible through the pour and highlights of dark brown manage to escape. Stubborn, sparkly tan foam cakes the pint glass as the plush froth plateaus and sinks.

S - Heavily roasted malt emits semi-sweet chocolate and some coffee essence with dry cocoa and undertones of rich milk chocolate. Complex and deep, the bold aroma is finished by a smooth oatmeal-like scent.

T - The Poet tastes like a chocolate candy bar topped with oats. Dark chocolate chunk and freshly ground coffee-like bitterness are evened out with smooth milk chocolate and soft, whipped nougat.

M - Rich and voluptuous, this full-bodied beer has a silky smooth feel from the oats and a perfectly balanced roasted malt bitterness to even things out!

O - Though dark and sinister in appearance, The Poet is a seductive, chocolaty beer that's silky smooth yet roasted and bitter for an exceptional balance and long-lasting finish. Quite possibly the benchmark for the style, The Poet is one of New Holland's stunning achievements in zymurgy.
