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. Very dark with frothy tan head and good lacing. Smells roasty and chocolatey. A bit metallic and herbal, but also chocolaty and roasty. Dry finish.

Oly (43) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Black with nice tan head that lingers. Aroma is roasted malt and bitter chocolate. That carries through in the taste, which also carries some burnt sugar. Medium bodied. Very well balanced and drinkable stout.

12 oz bottle poured into a pub glass. Pours black with frothy tan head. Smells of chocolate, oats, roasted malt and molasses. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Nice and thick, creamy but not oily. Good beer would drink again.

Bendrixian (1162) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours a rich dark black with a lighty brown head with good head retention. Molasses, toast, chocolate and some bread on the aroma. On the palate those rich creamy notes amplify the toast and blend well enough with those choclate like malty notes. Good length. Good stuff!

from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - murky black beer under a solid and long lasting creamy beige head; roasted aroma of chocolate and black coffee; medium-bodied, a light tartness balanced by some lactic notes; long aftertaste of mocha and pretty roasted

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Rich black pour with a generous fluffy light khaki head. Nice sweet and earthy roasty nose with a touch of chocolate and a wee kiss of cinnamon and roasted black malt. Smooth rich deep flavor with earthy cocoa and some roastiness and a smooth rounded finish from oats. Very enjoyable and dark and semisweet yet earthy.

Just delicious, chocolatey, oatmeal stout goodness! I love the fall and the beers it brings. I need to stop drinking though or do I?!? DAMN The Poet, I love your velvety smooth taste!

Spab (2519) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a nearly black, dark brown with average-sized beige head. Aroma is predictably dark and roasty with notes of coffee and chocolate. Flavour is also quite roasty with lots of coffee and cocoa, as well as hints of dark fruit that provide a subtle sweetness. Plus body. Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

Concealer (827) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark reddish brown with a thin, foamy tan head that laces. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee and vanilla. Flavor is the same with some underlying sweet malt/dark fruit notes. Medium bodied, smooth with a slightly dry end.
