Whether The Poet is beer-poetry or comfort-beer is your up to you. Whichever you choose, it is an oatmeal stout with rich, smooth malt character enveloped in tones of roast and chocolate. A soft mouth-feel brings luxurious flavors and soothing aroma. Any time of year, The Poet is as versatile as it is delicious. It pairs wonderfully with earthy flavors such as mushrooms and beef, while remaining the perfect accent to any chocolate dessert. to Oats bring a creaminess and soft mouth-feel to rich, roasty malt character.

    This stout entered Ontario as a brand new entry into the stout race and started near the top. This is a black beer with brown edges and a creamy light brown cap. Lots of coffee and roasted malt in the aroma and the flavour is nicely balanced between the sweet chocolate notes and the bitterness of the coffee and roasted malt

    12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy tan head that retains well and lace the glass a little.

    The aroma is sweet roasty chocolate malt and oatmeal.

    The flavor is sweet chocolate malt, some acidic roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a solid oatmeal stout.

    Pours a large frothy brownish head and has a fairly dark brown appearance with ruby highlights. Good lacing all around. Aromas of mild coffee, sweet malt and vanilla. Flavours of chocolate, coffee and cocoa notes, vanilla, and the oatmeal is somewhat mainly in the finish. Pretty good retention and mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Quite enjoyable.

    The beer pours a solid coca-cola black with a brown creamy head. Aroma was nutty malt, chocolate, and coffee. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was bitter coffee, sweet chocolate, and a hint of molasses.

    Pours a jet black that you can see visible light through. Sub-one finger head that disappears very fast. Aroma is very chocolatey and full of roasted malts. Very dry and fizzy to the tongue. Taste is of dull metal and malts. Somewhat bitter. Finishes off very dry. For an oatmeal stout it is very very dry, which is somewhat different that the others I have had. Very drinkable but it lacks in the taste department.

    Chocolate, roasted malt and cherries... both in aroma, color and flavor. Dark ruby to brown in color with a finger and a half head, slight retention and nice lacing. Medium to full bodied and pleasantly so. Very nice, indeed.

    Sampled at GABF on 9/17/2010. This sweet stout pours a dark brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, semi sweet. A medium bodied sweet stout. The malts are chocolate and coffee. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. Good balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
