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.

Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a cola color with a off-brown head. Garnet highlights. Aroma is somewhat faint chocolate with some toffee and some oatmeal. Taste is smooth chocolatey, toffee - a bit thin. Indeed without the hint of oatmeal, I would say "porter". Smooth. Finishes fairly light. Some body and thickness would help it significantly as the flavor is good.

Via trade with Ernesto987. The aroma is chocolate, light roast, molasses. The appearance is slightly translucent black, reddish hue. The flavor is sweet, molasses, dark chocolate. Medium in body, slightly thin. Not appropriate for the style. Normally oatmeal adds a lot of body to a beer. The finish is roast, light pine. Decent, not truly great.

Strong oatmeal aroma and amber black pour leads to a strong coffee chocolate taste and pleasant mouthfeel. An easy drinking stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of chocolate, oatmeal and some roasty notes. The taste was very chocolatey with a bit of coffee and some oatmeal. Tasty.

Bottle poured black with a medium frothy tan head and notable lacing. Aroma includes coffee beans, cocoa, bakers chocolate, and oatmel. Oats are more evident in the taste joined by roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. Enjoyable finish and nice mouthfeel.

Okay, but this is a little too light for my palate. There’s a good dark bitterness, but not balanced.

From the bottle poured a dark brew with a generous light brown head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. Medium/full bodied smoky malt flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate.

Dark beer with thin tan head. Hints of chocolate and coffee at first but seemed to weaken as the beer warmed a little. Overall nice flavor.

Decent stout, not too bad, dark and smooth but decent. Drank at beer tasting.
