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.

Definite aroma of coffee with a little chocolate sprinkled in. I love the bottle design, the brew itself is dark and thick and luscious. Flavorwise, on the first sip, all I could taste was coffee, there was hardly even any beer taste to it, everything down to the aftertaste was like a straight black cup of coffee. After enjoying it a bit more, I can pick up a little chocolate, and maybe even a little vanilla. It feels like I’m drinking milk, very full and soft palate. Ridiculously smooth and comfortable, helps balance out the bite of coffee. Overall, I think this beer is lovely, but just not right for me. I would like to see a little more complexity in the flavor.
