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.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 From the bottle. Black body. Large light tan head. The aroma is rich chocolate and coffee. Hints of coffee creamer. Slightly sweet. The taste is light coffee and not nearly as sweet as the aroma would have indicated. The mouthfeel is grainy with some dark bread. A nice light stout that would be a good session brew.

Ok Cheri I think this beer missed the bus myself. Well it has a black appearance. A faint to almost non exist chocolate aroma. Some sour notes with leftover coffee, grapes, and some charcoal. This one was a bit on the thin side and nothing horribly impressive. Overall ok

First, let me start by telling Shag that Snoop Doggy Dog is not a great poet and that listening to rap while sampling this stout does not inspire better notes.... Wonderful appearance -- Opaque black; however, flavors were thin and ordinary: chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Thanks again, Regal! Think I was more impressed by this brew than two white boyz trying to get jiggy, exclaiming they missed the bus...

very mild smooth aroma, lightly burnt malt and chocolate. average aroma, but better than average taste and palate--drinks like thick water but tastes very nice. too bad it’s only a winter seasonal.

It started out as just another stout but it got better as the glass went on. A very good stout - nice color, aroma and flavor.

Opaque black with a perfect creamy tan head that slowy erodes leaving light glass lace in its wake. The aroma is bitter chocolate, toasted bread, light citrus hops. The flavor is a light chocolate, roasted nutty malt, medium bitter citurs hoppiness. The palate is quite lively medium bodied. Decent stuff though nothing other than the look of it in the glass really stands out.

Pours as black as you’d expect - not much head. Malt nose. Its finish was a bit too sweet for my liking, but I guess that it lived up to its billing lol.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Thanks to atpayne for this. Pours deep black with a big, tan head. Aroma of malt, big chocoff, slight prunes. Tastes malty, with some molasses and chocolate at the finish. Firm palate with nice balance and complexity. A stellar sweet stout. Just marvelous.

Milky, chocolate, sweet, roasted cashews, leather, deep brown stout. Mostly a malt backbone, but some bitterness in the end. Medium palate. Enjoyable.

Coffee and roasted malt aroma, nose it long enough some chocolate comes through, initial taste is almost like a chocolate soda, vanilla aftertaste and as it warms some coffee bitterness comes in the aftertaste. Really good, but not quite as good as Bell’s
