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 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.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Pours a brownish-black with a fizzy cream-colored head and minimal lacing. Scents of roasted malt, and maybe an underlying espresso and mocha. Tingly mouth feel was definitely not what I was expecting, wanted something a little smoother. Some dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee flavors that lingers throughout from start to finish. Pretty decent stout.

on tap at the oasis in rockford. poured dark. a very smooth brew with some nice chocolate. I would call this a single chocolate. Just a great beer with no bite.

Black color with an good, long lasting head. Chocolate with heavy coffee and cream flavors. Tasted a bit watered down and too sweet for my liking.

Deep, dark brown, nearly black. Tastes of coffee blended with sweet caramel. Another new favorite.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pitch black, nice long lasting tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt(similair to Whoppers candy) and coffee with heavy cream. A slight toastyness completes the nose making it almost perfect. Full bodied and creamy this beer was a touch bitter right out of the bottle. Mellowed out with time but I would love to try this on tap.
