Comments:
This review will not be written in iambic pentameter just because the beer's name is 'The Poet'.

Feel free to regard it as shotgun free verse. That's very post-modern.

This is a dark beer,
black as a raven
on a moonless night.

At least, that is how it looked at night
in the living room
without much light.

That's a good color for a beer.
Whether there is a moon or not.

There is not much of a nose,
much like a raven,
On a moonless night.

Unlike a raven,
on any night,
the beer had a nice, creamy head.

It's flavor was smooth,
like a raven's feathers
on a moonless night.

It was malty,
with malty finish
the best finish
to a moonless night.
