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 you’ll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014. Poured a really dark brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma of burnt malt, marmite and dates. Thick, smooth mouth feel. Flavours of treacle, ash and dark fruit. Finish was building roast bitterness, coffee and burnt sugar.

Single 12oz bottle . Pour was perfect oatmeal stout. Thick creamy head that stayed and stayed. Rich chocolate and coffee notes abound. Malty richness from first sip to last drop. Find this one and give it a try.

Oly (46) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Black with nice tan head that lingers. Aroma is roasted malt and bitter chocolate. That carries through in the taste, which also carries some burnt sugar. Medium bodied. Very well balanced and drinkable stout.

12 oz bottle poured into a pub glass. Pours black with frothy tan head. Smells of chocolate, oats, roasted malt and molasses. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Nice and thick, creamy but not oily. Good beer would drink again.

Bendrixian (1174) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours a rich dark black with a lighty brown head with good head retention. Molasses, toast, chocolate and some bread on the aroma. On the palate those rich creamy notes amplify the toast and blend well enough with those choclate like malty notes. Good length. Good stuff!

from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - murky black beer under a solid and long lasting creamy beige head; roasted aroma of chocolate and black coffee; medium-bodied, a light tartness balanced by some lactic notes; long aftertaste of mocha and pretty roasted

Black pour tan head. Roasted malts and a touch of caramel on the nose. Slight bitter start that turns sweet. Medium bodied.
