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.

Not as rich as I was expecting for a stout. Otherwise, it was a pretty decent drink.

On tap at brewery, pours a very dark color with a thick tan head, has nice smooth chocolate aroma and very roasty flavor, overall this good but seems a little thin.

Bottle. Pours black, but clear and thin looking under a medium sized beige head. Chocolate and vanilla, big sweet oats. Flavors follow the nose with chocolate and vanilla. Decent overall, nice sweetness, chocolate and roast on the finish.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle from Cavie. Black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, malty, and full of chocolate. Taste is bitter, dry, and very roasted. The finish hits very late with a nice chocolate/coffee finish.

weitz15 (406) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Black pour, thick brown head. Aroma of coffee and hops. Flavor seems to be a decent mix of coffee and hops as well, with an even balance giving this beer a nice finish.

mansquito (4196) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Marvin’s, DC bottle ($7): Pours a black colour with a brownish head. Aroma of coffee, a little bit of chocolate, and roasted malts. Body was thinner than expected and that left the beer to be a thin experience overall. However, the chocolate and coffee tastes were quite good and the tastes were balanced overall. This would be a good stout to session because it isn’t hard to drink like some of the more bitter stouts out there. Not outstanding, but good.

Decent Oatmeal stout, started out very nice, got a little boring by the end, but overall good.
