New Holland The Poet

12 oz bottle, thanks to Grant for the chance to try this one.
Jet black body but the head is rather poor and somewhat white in color. Retention is not great either and of course, neither is the lace. Some spotty film on the surface of the beer. I thought that the head might be better than this ultimately produces.
No mistaking this an an oatmeal version of the stout genre. Very smooth in the mouth with some residual sweetness created by the grain.
Leaves a nice coating on the teeth and tongue again that comes with a residual suagr note.
The light toasted/roasted malts do not provide much bitterness and the beer rounds out to be pretty smooth on the whole.
Nice, simple and drinkable. Style hit nicely and a decent version. Tasty.
