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.

reebtogi (5593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours almost black in color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a milk chocolate sweetness with a light roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Overall, this is a solid stout, but there are better ones out there.

patricks110 (2409) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Rich and roasted well with a touch of cocoa nib and a light espresso bean. Smooth and a tad sweet with a full body and a creamy mouthfeel. Roasted and robust malt throughout with a heavy cocoa on the back end. Creamy in the middle.

valpoaj (729) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle pour - haven’t had this one in a long time, and surprised I haven’t rated it. Near black pour with a deep brown head that settles very quickly into a thin film with heavy effervescence. Aroma is very sweet and malty, caramel...hint of smooth roasted coffee, sweet chocolate - enticing! Flavor has a bit of a roasted malt character - lactose is evident. Good, but not ’great’. Mildly, not overpowering creamy mouthfeel. Nice drink...

MNAle (120) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Dark/black/opaque. Half-agressive pour results in a tall tan bubbly head, almost to the top of the Imperial Irish pint glass. Head recedes slowly, leaving thick lacing. Sweet, smoaky, roasted, nutty aroma. Thick, smooth feel. Taste is roasted but subdued. Sweetness & roastiness are there, but far from overpowering. Nice and smooth, but not as much roastiness as the aroma would suggest. Bitterness asserts in the middle and continues for a clean finish. An easy drinking stout, smooth and creamy.

Pours a black color with khaki head. As promised, gets better when it warms to 45 degrees
