New Holland The Poet

What the brewers say

“Oats bring a creaminess and soft mouthfeel to rich, roasty malt character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “This smells like my dad’s study: pipe tobacco, vanilla, plus a little milk chocolate and hints of dark cherry and blueberry.”

Flavor: “Fairly chewy mouthfeel accentuated by the high level of fine-bubbled carbonation. The roast and cocoa cut the silkiness leading to a roasted acidity and dry finish. The esters on the nose are also on the palate but are more subtle.”

Overall: “Classic British oatmeal-stout character. A well-made beer. The acidity lingers a bit longer than some may care for, but overall it is very drinkable.”
