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.

Very dark, almost black in color. Practically no head. Aroma and taste is typical of an oatmeal sweet. High in maltiness and chocolate. Not bad.

alexanderj (3462) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle picked up this summer; poured a dark, cola brown with a small to medium light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt,/coffee milk sweetness and hints of chocolate. Just slightly thin on the palate, but the palate was nice overall. Flavor had some light chalkiness in the finish. Flavor was a blend of chocolate, roasted malt, oats and sweetness. Easy drinking and solid brew.

The beer pours a medium to dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma is of coffee, malt, and chocolate. The beer is extremely smooth in the mouth. The main flavors are coffee and chocolate with a bit of malt mixed in. The only complaint I have about this beer is it doesn’t have a great aftertaste. This beer’s flavor is on the lighter side for n oatmeal stout, but it’s not a bad beer.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with reddish-amber highlights and a modest, coarse, short-lived head that leaves pretty good lacing. Aroma is of coffee grounds, dark roasted malts and a touch of cream. Flavor is mostly of watered down coffee grounds and dark malt. Dry. Medium-light body, smooth palate, low carbonation, a bit watery. Not a bad beer, but a bit one-dimensional and weak. "A rich, creamy brew of epic proportions" is an exaggeration!

Bottle pours black with a 1 inch off white head that clings to the glass - perfect. The aroma is bitter chocolate and roasted coffee; perhaps some brown sugar or molases. The flavor is milk chocolate, oatmeal, some milk (2%), and weak coffee. The palate is thin to medium with some carbonation. Overall, not my favorite, but still a decent beer.

12oz Bottle: Pours dark brown w/ a minimal tan head. Very nice aroma, light coffee, roasted malt & chocolate. Flavor is rich & roasty w/ a hint of creaminess. Nice full-bodied stout w/ just enough bitterness to balance things out. Good stuff.
