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 youíll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Dark brown stout. Took a few sips to begin enjoying this one, as the sweet malty oatmeal taste began to kick in. Very smooth, very enjoyable beer.

Pours pitch black with a massive head that lingers for a very long time and leaves nice, fairly thick rings of lacing. 4 on appearance. Aroma is mild, but has some roasted malt, bread, and purple fruit. Silky mouthfeel, roasted malts, and more purple fruit in the flavor. This is really, really tasty. A close associate agreed. Iím surprised this isnít more highly rated. One of the smoothest stouts Iíve had. The purple fruits really balance the roast well also. Actually would appeal to Belgian Strong or Imperial Porter fans (that would be me) in the mood for something a little lighter. Gambled on a six-pack of this - attractive packaging, seemed interesting - and I won. Would be a 4 if the aroma were stronger.

ChrisFields (70) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours dark black coffee with almost no head to speak of. Aromas of licorice and chocolate. Taste is sweet malt, chocolate and doughy bread. Light carbonation and medium body leaves a silky mouthfeel and makes for a pretty smooth drinking stout. Overall pretty pleased with this one. Opens up nicely as it warms.

Poured from the bottle a deep brown/black with a beautiful tan head. Not much aroma, but a bit of chocolate and raisins. Malty and rich, balanced with distant hops. This beer has a silky mouthfeel. A delight to drink.
