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 youíll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Pours jet black with just a trace of tan head. Aroma is not as stong as Iíd expect, chocolate and burnt malts. Taste is malts and oatmeal with a wave of hops coming through for a bittersweet finish. Thick mouthfeel. Overall an excellent oatmeal stout.

From bottle. Part of October Dayton Beer Tasting event. Poured near-black with scant tan head. Aromas of coffee and malt. Thinner mouthfeel than expected. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Easy drinking.

I donít know if this was an "off" batch or what. But it has an aroma like a used ashtray. Taste is slightly better than the aroma but it is not a very good oatmeal stout IMO. I see others have rated it alot higher than me, so Iíll get another bottle later and re-evaluate then.

Bottle. Pours near-black with a small tan head. Aroma is of coffee and sweet roast malt. Flavor is mostly coffee - canít really taste the oatmeal. Quite smoky. Not bad.

marv3mania (182) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is very coffee-like with a lot of roasted malts. Taste follows the nose. Not as smooth or silky as I usually expect from an oatmeal stout. Not bad, but Iíve had better.

poured out see through brownish ruby colored with a finger thick head that was of white mocha colored which was bubbly but thick. there is lacing around around the glass and the head fell fast but "slowly". you can tatse bitter sweet chocolate and roasted coffee which all go together very well. it finishes really nice with a plesent aftertaste which will please your palate.

12oz bottle. Pours dark dark brown with light white head. Not a ton of flavor and not real bitter. Taste is roastiness with hints of coffee. Lacks something that other great stouts have. Decent and drinkable though.

hopmelt (172) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours almost black, finger and a half creamy dense tan head, lots of lacing. Aroma chocolate, roast, toasty, slight coffee and earthy hops. Taste creamy milk chocolate, lactose sweetness, roast, hint of coffee and bready malt. Mouthfeel fuller body, lower carbonation, very creamy, sweet finish. Overall tasty, well made, perhaps not my favorite style, but this is a classic example.
