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.

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 I’ve had better.

Draft at Eulogy. Opaque black pour with a large frothy tan head. Nice aroma. Dark roasted coffee. Chocolate nibs. Creamy bubbly pudding, though feels watery by the finish. Sweet charcoal notes in the mix as well. Works as an easy drinking session stout.

Tasted on 4/21/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours nearly black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sweet creamy malt with plenty of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is dark with a bit of a nutty note, along with the same lightly sweet creamy vanilla, dark chocolate, and coffee. The body is full and creamy with average carbonation and a long creamy coffee and dark chocolate finish.
