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 opaque, light tan head. Smell is largely burnt toast and coffee. Flavors of coffee and black bread dominate, with a buttery finish.

koleminer20 (432) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown, with a decently quickly dissipating head, leaving a decent lace on the glass. The aroma is mostly roasty malt, very thin. And there is a hint of some form of milk. The taste is heavy malt, and it's just overly sweet. The palate is pretty thin, and it just leaves so much more to be desired ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very dark brown to raven black. Hints of ruby in the light. Generous tan head that settles into about a quarter inch and grabs the sides of the glass like its hanging in for dear life. Aroma is a nice blend of chocolate roasts, oats and malt. Taste turns up the heat on the roasted flavor an introduces some coffee and creaminess to the chocolate malt-tones. Very soft in the mouth and sweet but with a nice depth of flavor. Slightly bitter at the finish. I like this stout very much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, and a touch of coffee. Very nice Sweet Stout.

Bottle poured a dark brown in color with a ring of tan head. Aroma has malts, mild oats, and chocolate. Mouth feel is a medium and there is average carbonation. Flavor has a bit of chocolate, mild roast, oat richness, mallts, and a smooth finish.

Lemke10 (683) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2013
This pours a dark brown color with only a slight off-white head. The aroma is mild with hints of robust malts and toasted oats. The taste is sweet, smooth, and full of rich flavor. It has a nice texture for its pricing as it’s not the heavy syrup stouts you would get from a $15-4pack. Drinks very nice and is well made.
