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 from the bottle to a dark brown qwith thin off-white head and no lacing. Fortunately, appearance was the only thing lacking with this beer. Aroma was a strong, pleasant malty chocolate-oatmeal biscuit scent. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and a little chewy, and the taste carried over where the nose left off. Rounded to a good long sweet finish. Interesting label too.

trapped (1654) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 18, 2015
Draught @ Ginger Man. Clear dark brown with reddish tint, small beige creamy head, faint roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet roasted malt taste, thin body, medium bitter roasted finish. Very smooth and easy to drink.

Aromas of roasted malts, anise, char, and dark fruits. Taste is roasted malts and black licorice with some char and chocolate.

It looks and tastes like soda pop. I was really anticipating something extraordinary based on the reviews, so perhaps that build up has left me flatter than this stout. Damn.

Semi-opaque dark pour with a lightly colored khaki head. The aroma is oddly fruity with an equally odd absence of roast. Oooh that’s nice and different. The flavor is complex with some spice, fruit, licorice, floral and a delicate bitterness inside of a creamy textured body. Maybe its because I just had a different stout minutes before, but I cannot detect more than a very small hint of roasted barley. This almost defies the simple category of sweet or oatmeal stout. Much more complex than just roast & coffee or chocolate. This is special. I resist giving this 20 out of 20 but why not, this is as good & 3 dimensional as any trappiste ale.

An excelent oatmeal stout, not as bitter as many stouts, but also not as dark a flavour. It has a lighter, nutter flavour.

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Black with a small tan head. Sweet with oat, chocolate, caramel and some light coffee. Medium mouthfeel. A descent one.

Looks good in the glass. Has a nice flavor but slightly lacking in its aroma. Drinkable.
