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.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2005
12oz bottle pours black with a tan head that settles quickly back to a film and laces a little down the glass. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste is mostly roasted. Notes of chocolate and coffee also abound. Palate is smooth, mouthcoating and carbonated just about right. Nice roasty aftertaste stays with you for a bit. Also some detectable hops at the end. A nice stout. Malty roasty and delicious.

A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, and chocolate, as well as light wood notes. The finish is like a good bitter dark dessert chocolate.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Sharp aroma I can’t really place, but it smells vaguely of cheese wax. Dark brown to black with a MASSIVE mocha head. Bitter fore with some very mild roastiness and even milder chocolate notes in the middle and finish. Body is thin giving this an almost porter-like feel.
