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.

Pour with thin head and dark brown color. Aroma is full of chocolate and caramel. Taste is failrly full and finish is bitter.

Pours a deep black with a thin beige head. Sweet chocolate, roast, and oats on the nose. Body is heavier than expected, but then again it is an oatmeal stout. Mouthfeel is sliky. Sweet chocolate on the palate. Finish is like candy with a slight bitterness.

Dark, Delicious, and Damn good. Roasted malts and dark chocolate delivered to the fullest, with an excellent aftertaste.

Aroma is a pleasant mix of oatmeal and loads of bitter chocolate. Chocolate continues into the flavor and the oatmeal becomes more assertive in both the flavor and the ultra-creamy texture. It’s almost like velvet in a glass. Hops come in at the back end and linger. Phenomenal balance with sweetness from the oats and charred malt. Just wonderful.

Roasty, thin and not the black hole darkness that I like. Pretty good stout, but when in Michigan, hit up Bell's Kalamazoo Stout.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours a dark brown....almost black...with slight tan head. Aroma is a bit unremarkable, but I can pick up the roast and chocolate. Taste is smooth and even with roast and chocolate and suprising light for a stout. Couldn’t really identify the coffee flavoring.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Pours jet black with a nice tan head. Aroma is musty roasted malts, with hints of coffee. In the mouth it’s well carbonated and creamy. Flavor is a little weak, but still nice, with hints of coffee, chocolate and, well, sugar. Thanks to dra19 for the bottle!

Bottle. A light black/dark brown pour with a very small head that was gone instantly into a ring. Aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, roasted malt. A "light" tasting easy drinking stout. Heavier on the aroma than the taste. Enjoyable, but not much there really. Everything in the aroma is there, but its not very thick in the taste. Too thin for me. With the palate, you taste it an its gone. About it. Overall, its alright, but definitely not what I hoped for.

TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Pours a little light for a stout. The smell is very good, full of coffee, malt aroma. Taste is solid, but a little on the lighter side. Coffee + chocolate and a hint of alcohol, very drinkable.

Pitch black with a thin tan head. Strangely bitter aftertaste, but it is the bitterness of dark chocolate. Taste is fairly bitter dark chocolate as well, with coffee notes.
