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.

Had This on draft at Teller’s in Hyde Park a suburb of Cincinnati..If you have not had this on draft i highly recommend trying it on draft to enjoy the true beauty of this stout. Creamy sweet nice carmel roasted malt overtones. Gentle on the palette and easy to drink alcohol hidden very well and was an awesome choice with my steak dinner!

Bottle. A light black/dark brown pour with a very small head that was gone instantly into a ring. Aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, roasted malt. A "light" tasting easy drinking stout. Heavier on the aroma than the taste. Enjoyable, but not much there really. Everything in the aroma is there, but its not very thick in the taste. Too thin for me. With the palate, you taste it an its gone. About it. Overall, its alright, but definitely not what I hoped for.

Black with no head. More chocolate than coffee flavor. Roasted malts with just a bit of a bitter finish. A bit thin. A nice complex easy to drink stout.

alexanderj (3503) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle picked up this summer; poured a dark, cola brown with a small to medium light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt,/coffee milk sweetness and hints of chocolate. Just slightly thin on the palate, but the palate was nice overall. Flavor had some light chalkiness in the finish. Flavor was a blend of chocolate, roasted malt, oats and sweetness. Easy drinking and solid brew.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an extremely dark ruby red with a small off white head. The aroma is light chocolate, roasted malts, with an earthiness. The flavor is pretty standard for the style with semi sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and a smooth finish. The finish is a touch dry. Medium mouthfeel.
