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.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2005
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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy chestnut brown with a handsome, beige head that leaves some lacework. There’s a weak aroma of roasted malt. Medium body with lightly roasted malt notes and a dry, slightly bitter finish. A VERY thin finish. Disappointing. 150807

Bottled. Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Wonderful chocolaty, roasted malty aroma with hints of cream (fudge). Chocolate, roasted malt and some soapish hints in flavour. Also some wooden hints in flavour. The flavour is kind of weak link in this one though.

cgarvieuk (13921) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle at home ... Big thanks to Beer Bill for this ... black ... think bubbly tan head ... light sweet roast malts with a little chocolate ... bit thin in palate .... dark berries and cherries ... little creamy ... little oatmeal ... little coffee ... tasty but just lacking a bit in body.

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled
Almost opaque black, not much head. Slightly hoppy aroma with strong milk chocolate presence. Not really strong nose. Chocolaty, medium-bodied, despite of roastiness a bit bland. Roasted aftertaste.
