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.

BadAprilia1000 (404) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours an oily black with a darker cappuccino head. Aroma is coffee, creamy, chocolate, caramel, warm buttery toffee, weak anise/licorice. Taste is dry dark chocolate, black coffee, then the oats and creaminess, lots of malt and a slight note of darker stone fruits. Overall a very drinkable oatmeal stout.

Bottled. Pours dark black with a medium tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, toast and coffee. Smells better than it tastes. Chocolate and roasted malt. I was expecting more sweetness with an oatmeal stout. Finishes with a burnt toastiness. decent

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Pitch black coloring. 1/2" head. Lacy. Cereal, malty, bready. Milk smooth entry with powerful and pleasing oatmeal nostril exhale. Body is thin - bordering on a little too watery, but flavor is rich and bountiful. A truly quality stout and a new favorite. Especially happy to find this in South Carolina in the land of ABV restrictions.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - APR 1, 2008
Pours a dark black with brown highlights and a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Nose is musty, earthy, with strong coffee notes and a wooden smokiness, like the smell of a campfire on a cold night. Not too heavy on the palate but smooth, with added body from oats along with a correlative cereal taste, a mild vanilla sweetness and again a dominant oaken smoke character. Finishes very faintly medicinal, with a lingering but gentle herbal bitterness. A pretty decent sweet stout.

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Murky brown with a tan head that quickly fades away. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. Roasted malt dominates the taste with notes of coffee followed by a lonf dry chocolate finish. Chewy body.
