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.

My kind of stout, really. Dark and roasty, malty but balanced, sweet but not at all cloying. Quite big and satisfying.

A solid stout, with complex roasty notes that aren’t overpowered by a lot of lactose sweetness like a lot of other stouts - still, it’s sweet enough to avoid being over-dry - nice.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Bottle from brad. Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. Nose is smokey and malty. Taste is that of light chocolate, not much smoke flavor and roasted malts. Has a velvety feel to it.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2005
12 oz. bottle: Pours a murky black though not completely opaque with a brown sustaining head. Aromas are a strong roasted malt presense and bitter dark chocolate. Flavor is slightly watery (but not overly so) coffee, dark chocolate with the hops showing themselves in the end and on into the finish.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Cocoa, bitter and caramel in the flavorful aroma. Dark reddish-black body with barely a head. Dry, with a decent lingering chocolate finish. A little thin-bodied, but a nice stout for warmer weather if you happen to have it in the summer.

Panzuriel (1283) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Dark Black Brown liquid with a fine mocha colored head of fine foam. Nose is a dry but creamy malt aroma. Taste is a nice roasty black coffee bitterness but mildly restrained, not overpowering. Mouthfeel is fluid and full. Finish is more coffee with toasty bitterness growing.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Thin head, very dark brown body. Aroma is light yeast and chocolate. Very, very thin body, way to watery. Taste is soy with some roasted malts. Sour finish.

lonelybeergeek (36) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Tasted with Crosling and B-rizzle at Crosling’s sauna. Strong, sweet coffee in the aroma, slight sourness from age. mild flavor, but very tasty. I wish I could get six-packs of this one.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Black color. Small, filmy mocha colored head with good density. Subtle roast aroma with hints of chocolate and sour fruits. Thin body, watery texture. Dry cocoa and chocolate flavors with vinous qualities.
