The Poet pours a black color, with a nice large lacing tan head. There is a strong sweet aroma, good hints of roasted malt. The taste has a nice big roasted malt flavor, with big hints of sweetens. Nice flavors, but a bit on the watery side. Overall very flavorful, but a bit watery.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
Beer is a deep, dark brown with a tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves some lingering lacing down the glass.
A strong roast aroma with hits of chocolate and coffee.
The taste is very nice, smooth and roasty with sweet chocolate and some coffee notes and a hint of dark fruit.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy and luscious.
Overall, one of the better oatmeal stouts I've tatsed.
