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.

Black color with solid oatmeal and roasted malts on the nose. Slightly watery finish with a similar flavor profile to the aroma.

The only thing missing from this Sweet Stout is head! I poured three from a bottle and not a single one had head. There was nice lacing though. Aroma is great -- malt and cocoa; flavor matches and has a little coffee too. If there were a light brown or tan head this might be my top-rated stout.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark roasted coffee color; medium tan head with lacing keeping patterns on the sides of the glass. Sweet, chocolate-laden aroma, showing some milk chocolate and cocoa; roasted coffee. Medium-to-full, creamy mouthfeel: chewy toffee and chocolate presence upfront - especially creamy and milk chocolaty throughout - with a dry roasted coffee presence coming through mid-palate. Ends slightly dry, with nuts and bitter chocolate.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. This oatmeal stout poured a super dark brown color with a thin, bubbly, dark tan head that quickly faded away. No lace. The aroma consisted of milk chocolate, roasted malts, a note of mocha coffee, and also a slight hint of hops at the backend. The flavor was made up of strong, rich milk chocolate, coffee, and just a hint of roast. The roasted malt definately took a backseat to the chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and lightly creamy with minimal carbonation, finishing just slightly bitter. An excellent stout.

bottle - Pours very dark brown with a one finger head. The aroma has plenty of chocolate and dark roast malt. Similar flavors are abundant and very tasty. Medium with some light hops in the finish, this stout is very good.

joergen (28955) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2007
Bottle. Clear red brown coloured with an off white ehad. Roasted aroma of malts, fruits, spices and berries. Light roasted flavour of chocolate, fruits and spices.

yespr (47039) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2007
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy and deep brown with a slight spiced notr. Clear roasted note and a slight chocolate flavour. Dry malty finish. Lacks a lot of body imho.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy chestnut brown with a handsome, beige head that leaves some lacework. There’s a weak aroma of roasted malt. Medium body with lightly roasted malt notes and a dry, slightly bitter finish. A VERY thin finish. Disappointing. 150807

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle: Strong aroma and flavor of coffee and chocolate. Creamy, thick palate. Very good stout.
