COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout is sheer beer poetry. Let it warm to about 45 F and pour it into a glass to fully experience its rich, roasty flavors and hints of coffee and chocolate. One glass and youíll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Bottle. Date unknown. Pours jet black with thin tan head. Aroma is a bit of coffee, some floral notes. I pick up some acidity in the flavor (orange?) and some biscuit/bready notes as well. Oatmeal adds nice depth though itís drier and more bitter than a traditional sweet stout.

Barreras (948) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours a dark black color with roasted aroma of hops. Chocolate oatmeal taste with a clean aftertaste. A smooth flavorful beer that looks ominous but is easy drinking. Dry on the palate after the swallow but rich oatmeal flavor left over.

keanex (1400) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Opaque chestnut body with a tall and dense darker tan head on top with great retention.
Aroma: Very weak aroma with a subtle fruit leaning bias. Hints of chocolate are noticed with a dash of caramel.
Taste: The flavor is mildly sweet with a dash of roast, a dash of smoke, a dash of caramel and a dash of chocolate. A little of everything but nothing is prominent.
Palate: Creamy and full-bodied.
Overall: Really unimpressive. Itís not that itís a bad beer, itís that it lacks focus. Thereís a lot of subtle flavors, but nothing that stands out. Everything sort of gets lost.

Nice beer taste and smell is just like spent grain. Dark head that fades but takes a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BAMF (78) - Albion, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Aroma is roasted malt and cereal with no hop and no esters. The appearance is black and mostly opaque with a light tan tall head with moderate retention. The flavor is very Rosi with oatmeal and cereal. The roasting this follows through and comes out a little burnt. The mouth feel is very creamy due to the oatmeal and style with low carbonation. Overall it's nice and smooth creamy roasted beer with a slightly unpleasant Burnt aftertaste.

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is very coffee-like with a lot of roasted malts. Taste follows the nose. Not as smooth or silky as I usually expect from an oatmeal stout. Not bad, but Iíve had better.
