Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought cinnamon, ginger, some dark fruit with a hint of slight yam, hints of cocoa, roast, and coffee as well. Taste is cocoa, coffee, some yam into cinnamon, some yam and veggie note into a bit of slight dark fruit, finishing spicy.

Draught. This is a fairly lackluster brew in the overall Bells spectrum. It has a slight off edge that hints at an infection in the brew. I have worked with sweet potatoes before and it is complicated. Maybe skip it.

Sampler at brewpub. Pours black with a khaki head. Some sweet potato on the nose. Bigger sweet potato notes on the tongue though they faded a bit as I drank it. Not bad but certainly not spectacular.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Bells: Nealy black with deep mahogany edges. A light tan film & collar quietly sits on top. Aroma is kind of earthy & dirty, much like a dusty potato skin would be. Hints of dark, roasted malt, light caramel, & a little bit of gumminess. Some vague autumn-y spices, ginger seeming to be the strongest. Maybe some clove, too. Taste actually seems to have some more cinnamon to it, though the ginger & clove vibe is still quite present. Strong earthy vibe, dirt, yam, ginger, burnt caramel, & light hints of cocoa dust. A bit of residual sugar sweetness balances the earthiness of the brew. Semi-creamy body. It’s a little sweet & maybe too strange to fully enjoy a pint, but it’s still a tasty & interesting brew in smaller serving sizes.

Very nearly black....with a small tan head.
Cola, chocolate, sweet potato aroma.
Taste is more of the same....nicely carbonated....
This one works...really nicely....
