A strong caramel aroma. Sweet and heavy. Plain body and coke-like carbonation. Almost no aftertaste. Not outstanding in any way.

Meh. Very dark stout. Minimal head with slight caramel color. Mild hints of coffee and chocolate. Almost no hops taste. Aftertaste is just kinda flat and not memorable. It is not bad or anything but there are so many of the same sort of stouts out there that all taste the same. flat and easily forgotten afterwords. 12oz bottle poured into glass. A six pack of this was hard to get through.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown color with a slim glazing of off-white foamy head. Barely any lacing but what there is slides down. The smell had a rich sweet chocolate to roasty coffee, decadent. The taste was rich and subtly sweet smooth chocolate. Light vanilla adds to balance and leaves a slight sticky sweet aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability to sipping quality about it. It’s got a good thickness running in and out along my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good oatmeal stout ranging on the sweet side.

12oz bottled 2/22/17 poured into a pint glass at fridge temp 5.8% ABV. The beer is very dark brown and shows no highlights, even if held to the light. The head is light brown and short lived with no lacing. The aroma is sweet chocolate. The taste follows with sweet chocolate and a slight heat from either alcohol or carbonation. Mouthfeel is full but this bottle seems over carbonated causing a sharp bite to the tongue and non-hoppy bitterness. Overall, good. I've had this before and loved it. I'm not familiar enough with New Holland to know if inconsistency in bottling is a resounding issue for them or not. Try this if you're a fan of the style, preferably in a nucleated pint glass.
