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.

The commerical description states "stout is sheer beer poetry." Well whoever wrote must be reading Poetry for Dummies, this stuff is really disappointing. The utter taste of oatmeal isn’t in a good way. almost tastes like to way too much Oatmeal in the outmeal stout. Coffee and chocolate notes are really subtle. Boo!!!!

Beer pours a nice black with a decent two finger off white head light tan head. The head really sticks around on this beer. The nose starts with a very nice milk chocolate, followed by some slight bitter espresso notes and roasted barley notes. There is also a nice bitter dark chocolate note as well. The beer mainly follows the nose, but the best part is the tremendous mouth feel. The beer is only 5.2% and it feels like a 10% behemoth. Excellent!

Dark black and clear in color with a foamy white head that hugs the edge of the glass. Roasted barley and chocolate in the nose, a touch of shoe polish. Smooth mouth-feel, light in body, light-medium carbonation, with a lasting finish. Rich and malty with chocolate and roasted barley flavors. Finishes dry and roasted. A nice oatmeal stout, dry (not sure why it’s categorized as a sweet stout) with a good dance of chocolate and roasted flavors.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 bottle. pours translucent dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. leaves heavy lacing on the glass. strong oat and light chocolate aroma. taste brings in a lightly sweet (brown sugar) roasted element and a moderate bitter. carbonation was a bit high at first but after a short sit it reigned in nicely. moderate thickness is lasting. this is an extremely well balanced stout that brings a variety of flavors. very impressed.

The aroma was fruity and roasty when first poured. Chocolate and coffee came forth with a dark roasty note of espresso and some acidity from the dark grains. Some grassy hop aromas lurked in the background as did a smidge of caramel. The beer poured into the glass black with a ruby highlight and a beige head which retreated quickly to just barely manage to lace the glass. The flavor was nicely achieved with a moderate level of roasty espresso coffee and dark chocolate and a caramel presence which kept everything from going bone dry. The bittering was crisp and lightly grassy and the beer had a nice fruity aspect. The finish was dry with lasting chocolate and roast into the aftertaste. The body was medium full and the carbonation on the low side, yet the beer was creamy and smooth on the palate. A very nice stout, good job! 12 ounce bottle.

pours a traditional stout like black, but with a very thin head. Smells of roast coffee, chocolate, and malt. Wow, taste like a cup of coffee. Good beer for the price and style. I would have no problem buying again.
