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.

Creamy black pour into Ciney glass. Aroma of coffee. Good smoky flavor with chocolate, coffee, salted nuts and oatmeal. This is smooth and creamy. Much better than anticipated.

Pours black, not much head. Roasted coffee slight chocolate. Not really a lot going on. Slight bitter finish. Overall not bad, but not great. I have a feeling this could be better on draft.

Deep brown body with a light tan head. Aroma reminiscent of pine. Taste is rich with oat and a chocolate but not bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’ve always liked this beer, good roasted coffee flavor, would prefer a little thicker, but overall a good drinkable stout.

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

Bonus bottle from Punkrkr27, thanks Steve... Pours black with a light mocha head.. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, some roasted malts and coffee...Flavor is dark chocolate, roasted malts and I can’t really pick up much else.. Lots of carbonation...Not sweet like I expected but it is pretty decent. Would have thought I was drinking a porter.

Pours near black with a touch of brown head. Nose is fairly potent roasted barley and oat with a little bitter hops and tangy, almost raisiny fruit. Flavor is much less tangy and quite sweet (for a stout), with a very good balance of roastiness/bitterness to the sweet oatmeal malt. Finish is weak and what little there is comes as sweetness.Medium body and very drinkable. Good stuff and great representation of a sweet oatmeal stout.
