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.

Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and light vanilla. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and carmel with a smooth malty finish.

Not a bad stout just a boring one.

jtclockwork (10306) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2010
UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Tasty light oatmeal stout. A little watery. Low-bodied. Black pour. Chocolate, oat and coffee mouthfeel. It’s good if you want an oatmeal stout and don’t want to sip on just one all night. Rated 4/6/10

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Courtesy of Sammy. Brow/black with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. The flavour has a nice sweetness, a smooth, full body, notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and it ends slightly dry. It’s nice, charming and uncomplicated.

Bov (10182) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2014
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

daknole (10100) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Pretty nice stout. Black pour wtih a small brown head. Aroma is pretty weak, but i do smell the typical coffee and cocao. Some molasses on the nose and togue. Beer is faintly sweet and has some nice balance. Nice beer to try, but not one to seek out on a regular basis.

hopscotch (9956) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle... Black ale with a mid-sized, frothy, well-tanned head. Good retention. Milk chocolate and caramel aroma. Well rounded, burnt, chocolaty notes in the flavor. Medium bitter with good balance. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Roasted, mildly burnt, lightly bitter finish. Lots of milk chocolate overall. Reminds me just a bit of Weyerbacher’s Old Heathen. Thanks go out to WBC for the bottle!

adnielsen (9901) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Tasted on tap at the International Tap House in St. Louis, Missouri. Dark orange-brown appearance (a bit off for a Stout). Nice sweet stout aroma . Flavor is pretty smooth but dark malts aren’t as obvious in the flavor as a stout should be.
