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.

Pours a dark brown with coca head. Head recedes to sides of glass, curtain laceing. Aroma of roasted malts, grain and basement. Taste of dark roasted malts, chocolate, burnt bread. Taste gets deeper with warming. Has a just creamy mouthfeel. Roasted malts linger longer into the finish. Nicely done, enjoyed.

0.4 draft. Clear, dark brown color and a small, tanned head of poor retention. Aroma of dark malts, some roast, grains, hints of coffee, and oats. Medium body, creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and chocolaty. Overall not a bad beer, served a tad too cold though.

Dark brown with brown head. Light roast the Coco aroma (and I sense some oats but that's probably the power of suggestion). Flavor is very roasty and dry. character of lightly sweetened black coffee, taste of roasted malt and medium bittering. classic oatmeal Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Ginger Man. Clear dark brown with reddish tint, small beige creamy head, faint roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet roasted malt taste, thin body, medium bitter roasted finish. Very smooth and easy to drink.

It looks and tastes like soda pop. I was really anticipating something extraordinary based on the reviews, so perhaps that build up has left me flatter than this stout. Damn.

Semi-opaque dark pour with a lightly colored khaki head. The aroma is oddly fruity with an equally odd absence of roast. Oooh that’s nice and different. The flavor is complex with some spice, fruit, licorice, floral and a delicate bitterness inside of a creamy textured body. Maybe its because I just had a different stout minutes before, but I cannot detect more than a very small hint of roasted barley. This almost defies the simple category of sweet or oatmeal stout. Much more complex than just roast & coffee or chocolate. This is special. I resist giving this 20 out of 20 but why not, this is as good & 3 dimensional as any trappiste ale.

An excelent oatmeal stout, not as bitter as many stouts, but also not as dark a flavour. It has a lighter, nutter flavour.

gyllenbock (7553) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Black with a small tan head. Sweet with oat, chocolate, caramel and some light coffee. Medium mouthfeel. A descent one.
