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.

Pours very dark, almost black, very little foam. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Tastes smokey, coffee flavor and a bit of chocolate, bitter aftertaste. A bit thinner than I expected, but pretty good.

I drank this colder than I should have, but even cold this beer is awesome. Pour was a dark black with a thin little tan head. Aroma of cream, chocolate and Werthers. Nice creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. Thick chocolate, with come coffee notes in the background. Nice bitter aftertaste. After drinking mostly wheats and pilseners for this beginning of summer, it was refreshing to drink something with some meat to it again.

12 oz Bottle: Nice malt aroma with some scents of nuts, chocolate, espresso, and a light amount of plum.(maybe) Pours a dark brown almost black almost opaque and a small sized tan head. A chocolate taste upfront, malts, coffee, a bit of smokiness, roasted nuts, caramel, and some cinnamon. Palate is nice a chocolate and malts that linger on for a while. Overall, I like this chocolate bomb. A really coffee and chocolate beer, Seriously!

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 (6776) - 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!

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.
