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.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2007
Mondial de la bière 07. Bel robe noire opaque, mousse moyenne qui reste. Arôme de chocolat, café, caramel. Goût crémeux, chocolat, caramel, mais tout s’estompe abruptement, très mince, aqueux. Décevant.

blankboy (6435) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle courtesy of lewis13. Pours a very dark brown with ruby hues and an average size lasting tan head. Slightly mild aroma of roasted caramel malt, chocolate, coffee, oats, dark fruit and hops. Flavour: Yum! Creamy chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit, a hint of smoke and a good amount of hops -- very flavourful and a delight to drink. Average bodied, creamy mouthfeel. A great Stout, I want more!

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Robe noire claire surmontée d’une mousse beige épaisse qui persiste. Arômes légers de malt. Saveurs de café et de caramel. Finale astringeante.

cheap (4446) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Brown 12 oz bottle for $1.50 at Vintage Estates in Boardman, thanks Nuts. When you pour it, it has a really dark opaque color that hides all those swirling sediments that have been resting on the bottom of the bottle. Bready uncooked yeasty dough smell, pretty good aroma. Bitter dark tasting alky laced with bitter very dark chocolate and or black coffee. Also includes some burned wood that has been extinguished with water. Good welcomed carbonation. Not bad and a good representative for a dark brew. Overall pretty coarse and oppresive for a sweet stout. Probably should be in the stout or imp stout category. Nothing like Mackeson, Sammy Smith or Schell Snowstorm, they are all much better than this.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Black pour with small brown head. Sticky lace. Smells of chocolate and roasted coffee. Not very complex, a little thin. Easy drinking with muted flavors and a bit of bitterness in the finish.

ross (2120) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bottle from Ryan. Thanks. Pours out a dark black color with a little bit of a brown head. Smell is sweet and full of coffee and chocolate. Very thick, roasted, full bodied, creamy, and just good. Very easy to drink, and really a good beer as well. This is one that compares almost equally to New Glarus Coffee Stout. Really good stuff, glad I was able to try it.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Pitch black coloring. 1/2" head. Lacy. Cereal, malty, bready. Milk smooth entry with powerful and pleasing oatmeal nostril exhale. Body is thin - bordering on a little too watery, but flavor is rich and bountiful. A truly quality stout and a new favorite. Especially happy to find this in South Carolina in the land of ABV restrictions.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Poured from bottle. Dark with a huge tan foamy head. Smelled like sweet malts. Taste was sweet malt, coffee, toffee, and even some saltiness. Bitter finish, with a lingering coffee taste...Pretty light mouthfeel for a stout. I liked this. Very drinkable!

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Pours black with a nice tan lasting head and some pretty nice lacing. Aroma is malts, cocoa, touches of smoke, and coffee. Flavor is bigger coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts. A light bitter bite in the finish. Very good overall.

TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Pours a little light for a stout. The smell is very good, full of coffee, malt aroma. Taste is solid, but a little on the lighter side. Coffee + chocolate and a hint of alcohol, very drinkable.
