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.

Smells of oats, milk chocolate, coffee, black licorice, light roasted malts and some hops. Dense black color with a sticky tan head. Tastes sweet and roasty at the same time but has an odd sour and salty aftertaste. Strangely, itís a drink that makes you thirsty. Itís a little thin and weak for my taste. Palate is not very good. I should have stuck to my guns on this one - I never trust a stout under 8% ABV.

Deep black pour with a thick creamy white head. The nose is really lovely. Nice oaty aroma with a deep rich chocolatey base. Has a really complex and lovely base. Toasted grain, milk chocolate, softly herbal and a little bit of umami. Unctuous and rich. Really delicious.
