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 youll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Draft pour very dark brown to back. Nose of some roast and toffee. Taste roast, coffee, but more so chocolate. A malty roasted finish. Decent bitterness throughout.

On tap at Churchkey. Dark brown body with soapy head. Nose is caramel, toasty and sweet. Taste is sour, caramel, malty, plummy and sour too. With coffee in there as well. Enjoyable.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown, with a decently quickly dissipating head, leaving a decent lace on the glass. The aroma is mostly roasty malt, very thin. And there is a hint of some form of milk. The taste is heavy malt, and it's just overly sweet. The palate is pretty thin, and it just leaves so much more to be desired ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very dark brown almost black color with a thin cream colored head. Lightly roasted grainy aroma. Body is thin, semi-sweet with an astrigent grainy flavor which I'm assuming is from the oats. Smooth, though, with a lightly hoppy roasted finish. A respectable oatmeal stout.

dried blood scarlet, dark nearly unto blackness; an oatmeal cookie colored head with a short attention span. aroma was somewhat secretive, but with a bit of prodding, it gave up some intelligence that i could use: coffee soaked oreos, burlap, and black licorice. flavor of fudge brownie and burnt grass-- at once both bitter and sweet . if it's soft carbonation, trim -if not thin -body, and quaffable palatte was a person, he'd be offering to check my luggage-- yep, it's a porter, and not a bad one. if you want a poetic sweet stout, though, let me direct your attention to a certain mr. shakespeare filed in the card catalogue under 'rogue'.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 A nice sweet stout, this one has a good roastiness to it in both flavor and aroma. This, however, strikes me as one of those beers that is difficult on which to comment. No feature is so exceptional or incredibly weak to really stand out, and so this stout, also, will not stand out. Its pretty good...but has no real distinguising character to really make the style its own. It is, however, fairly thin for a stout of any variety.

loose, foamy, chocolatey brown head dissipated rather quickly. Deep ruby body is completely transluscent. I can actually see through it, Im skeptical. Nose of chocolate and caramel with a strong cola suggestion. Thin, watery mouthfeel, relativelylively dries out leaving a coffee& dark chocolate flavor that highlights the beer. A sweeter, milk chocolate develops as it goes.

Opaque black with creamy tan head. Aroma is somewhat roasted but a bit thin for a stout. Flavor is a nice medium feeling roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Its smooth in flavor with a good bitterness and an easy finish. I get some dusty chocolate warmth in the finish to end it.

Has a mild roasty tone in the nose and taste. Gets somewhat sweet then finishes on the dry side, medium-bodied.
