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.

Dark beer with thin tan head. Hints of chocolate and coffee at first but seemed to weaken as the beer warmed a little. Overall nice flavor.

Loved the richness of this beer. I did take there suggestion and let it warm up some which totally made a difference in its taste!

Bottle into stout glass. Looks like it should. Pleasing aroma of chocolate oak. Similar taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Roasty tasty stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful sort of. Smooth and soft with bite. Milky, bitterness throughout, roasted almonds, brown sugar, light coffee, licorice. The hops are sizzly. The bitterness feels good but in the end I prefer my oatmeals much quieter. Great aftertaste.

Pours almost black with a short fairly long lasting cream head. Aroma of mild coffee and a little chocolate. Relatively thin mouth feel but very smooth taste of coffee and chocolate. Not TOO sweet (as compared to say a mild stout). Very easy to drink but not too complicated
