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 opaque black, transmitted amber. spotty lacing. 1/2 finger head which disappated. roasted malt aroma. no visible bubbles but conditioning is active, but not overly so. first sip is heavenly. can’t really detect the oatmeal. dark malty goodness. excellent quality. tad bit of porter at the end if you’re looking for it.

12 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Dark brown, opaque, very moderate head. Nose is sweet, brown sugar, caramel. Body is full and creamy. Taste is also quite sweet, malty, caramel, dark bread, a hint of chocolate. Not bad, if you’re looking for a sweet stout.

Definite aroma of coffee with a little chocolate sprinkled in. I love the bottle design, the brew itself is dark and thick and luscious. Flavorwise, on the first sip, all I could taste was coffee, there was hardly even any beer taste to it, everything down to the aftertaste was like a straight black cup of coffee. After enjoying it a bit more, I can pick up a little chocolate, and maybe even a little vanilla. It feels like I’m drinking milk, very full and soft palate. Ridiculously smooth and comfortable, helps balance out the bite of coffee. Overall, I think this beer is lovely, but just not right for me. I would like to see a little more complexity in the flavor.

bellco33 (487) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Poured from bottle into tulip: Definitely the best of the bunch that we tried tonight. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, cracker malt, and roasted leaves. Taste is mildly sweet, cracker malts come through strong (again), but is pretty well balanced with cocoa and light coffee. Medium body, nice carbonation, decent stout.

Notes from Denver trip: At Sputino on 32nd. Black pour, tan head. Nose is coco and dark roasted grain. Bittersweet, lean sweet. Middle is sweet oats and molasses. Finish is sweet, mellow dark malt. Had this for desert with their chocolate cookie...so good I forgot my cap when I left.
