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.

smooth stout with only a touch of bitterness at the end...mild stout smell...ever so slightly too watery...but at least it isn’t overwhelming...

This pours a very dark brown with some light being let in from the sides, with a very small mocha colored head. The smell is basically chocolate with come coffee hint, the taste is very similar a lot of chocolate with some coffee bitterness to balance a bit. This beer is very sweet, but a good example of the style.

Bottle from trade. Thanks to umich43jm! Pours dark brown with a beige head that falls quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, a touch of smoke. Taste is dark roasted malt, dark coffee. Really nice full mouthfeel.

One of my favorite stouts. Highly suggested for those that don't necessarily want the after dinner heavy stout. It has a pleasant carbonation in the finish which makes this beer easy to drink a few. Balanced palate and just the right sweetness. Very enjoyable.

From a bottle. Tons of cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. Good roasted malt background. Rich chocolates aroma. Very tasty stout, but definitely on the sweeter side.

Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Jet black with a slight tan head. Ashy malts, plain chocolate, some sweetish prune fruit and semi-dry finish. Good.

Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Similar flavors. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Decent, but nothing outstanding.
