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.

Great roast with solid coffee and cocoa notes. The oatmeal accentuates the creamy mouth feel and makes the roasting as of the malts really pop. Not sure this is a sweet stour, but itís quite good. Finishes with a light bitterness with solid roast, and bitter cocoa powder.

Very sweet stout with hints of chocolate, bread and a little smoke. I donít get much coffee. Low bitterness for a stout. Pretty good but a little too mild-mannered overall and lacking complexity.

Great oatmeal stout. A little bland, but for an oatmeal stout it is great.

probstblueribbon (3297) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
12 oz bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown with ruby highlights and a decent light tan head. Aroma: Distinctly meaty and lightly smoky, there is an aggressive, stinging tart aroma...it stings the nostrils, some nice roasted malts lurk in the wings, overall though, a mess. Palate: Medium+ body, moderate, creamy carbonation. Flav.: Wet cardboard, somewhat meaty, not getting the smokiness from the nose, reasonable roasted malt, still messy, but in a different way; dry with moderate bitterness and a surprisingly clean, roasted malt finish.

Are you accepting crappy beer or is it deteriorating in storage...?

The beer pours a solid coca-cola black with a brown creamy head. Aroma was nutty malt, chocolate, and coffee. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was bitter coffee, sweet chocolate, and a hint of molasses.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014. Poured a really dark brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma of burnt malt, marmite and dates. Thick, smooth mouth feel. Flavours of treacle, ash and dark fruit. Finish was building roast bitterness, coffee and burnt sugar.

Single 12oz bottle . Pour was perfect oatmeal stout. Thick creamy head that stayed and stayed. Rich chocolate and coffee notes abound. Malty richness from first sip to last drop. Find this one and give it a try.
