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.

Pours a deep black with a tan head that reduces to a small thin layer. Smells strongly of smokey roasted malts A well balanced taste that starts with roasted malts and ends with a hint of chocolate and coffee Really a nice oatmeal stout and would recommend to give this one a try.

pours nearly opaque black-brown with a thick, chocolatey head that lasts forever. nose of mocha, licorice, caramel. flavor is heavy semisweet chocolate and black coffee, with licorice, caramel, and roasted malt. malty aftertaste. sits heavy in your stomach, with the palate of chocolate milk, thick and creamy...forget dessert. this IS dessert.

let it warm till 45 degrees? whoa, i’ve got to try that. it was pretty darn good anyway. i was pretty darn impressed with this brew, other than its frequent over-the-top headiness...

This pours a very dark brown with some light being let in from the sides, with a very small mocha colored head. The smell is basically chocolate with come coffee hint, the taste is very similar a lot of chocolate with some coffee bitterness to balance a bit. This beer is very sweet, but a good example of the style.

Pours opaque, light tan head. Smell is largely burnt toast and coffee. Flavors of coffee and black bread dominate, with a buttery finish.

12 oz bottle. Pitch black, nice long lasting tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt(similair to Whoppers candy) and coffee with heavy cream. A slight toastyness completes the nose making it almost perfect. Full bodied and creamy this beer was a touch bitter right out of the bottle. Mellowed out with time but I would love to try this on tap.

Poured a dark black, minimal head, little laciong after the pour. Had this one with my meal and found that it was a loittle to sweet for the steak. Otherwise a decent brew with a distinct sweet caramel and light coffee undertones. Wasn’t as thick as I thought it would be.

An average stout. A little harsh tasting and not to balanced but not bad.

Pours as black as you’d expect - not much head. Malt nose. Its finish was a bit too sweet for my liking, but I guess that it lived up to its billing lol.
