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.

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.

Very dark, almost black in color. Practically no head. Aroma and taste is typical of an oatmeal sweet. High in maltiness and chocolate. Not bad.

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2007
very opaque black, transmitted amber. spotty lacing. 1/2 finger head which disappated. roasted malt aroma. no visible bubbles but conditioning is active, but not overly so. first sip is heavenly. can’t really detect the oatmeal. dark malty goodness. excellent quality. tad bit of porter at the end if you’re looking for it.

sthlm (1276) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2007
[Bottle] Brown with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma is oats, sweet, roasted malt, coffee and a little alcohol. Taste is pretty sweet and malty with the roasted malt and notes of coffee very present in the finish. Fairly thin and smooth with a long finish. Pretty good, but too thin and aside from the finish could stand to have a little more flavor.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Pours a deep, dark brown with garnet highlights and a finger of creamy, light tan head that leaves creamy lace in its wake. Dark roasted malt, coffee and cream with a backing of milk chocolate on the nose. Medium-bodied, slick and creamy with a roasted, bitter finish. Dark roasted malt and coffee with lighter notes of milk chocolate and faint lactose in the background transitioning toward a lingering, bitter, roasted coffee finish. This one is pretty tasty.

Black with decent, creamy tan head / Milk chocolate nose / Full, creamy body with balance of malt and hops / Flavors of milk chocolate, oats, and medium roast coffee, with toasty dry finish / Not a monster, but balanced and elegant.
