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. Itís a little sweet & maybe too strange to fully enjoy a pint, but itís still a tasty & interesting brew in smaller serving sizes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6oz on tap at Keystone in Hyde Park. Near-black color. Some clear red around the edges. Thin tan head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Good-looking stout. Medium-plus body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Good moderately full mouthfeel for the ABV. Good light spiciness in the aroma. Nice sort of darker chocolate. Sort of subtle sweet potato, but itís definitely there and it works well with the rest of the beer, the whole thing is pretty well integrated. Light roast. Moderate bitterness, moderate spice. Light sweet. Great stuff, really.. Iím surprised by how much I ended up liking this. Clearly, Bellís knows stouts. And theyíve done almost every type, apparently. Now sweet potato. Keep íem coming!

Draft at BottleMixx. Let me preface this by saying I absolutely hate sweet potatoes and was hesitant to try this. Thankfully, it was not like sweet potatoes and was amazing. very nicely done.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Bells. Translucent black with not much of a head. Aroma was all sugar, like caramel. I got caramel and very faint hints of sweet potato flavors.This was my first sweet potato beer mainly because i hate sweet potatoes, but this works. Solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Looks solid; a semi-transparent cola with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, sweet potato, and related spices. Tastes like it smells, only better and more well-balanced. Solid on the palate. An interesting spin on the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bellís - pours pitch, some head, a trace of lacing. The sweet potatoes are understated leaving a nice sweet brown sugar infused stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Sidetrack. The pour is a dark brown, with minimal head and no lace. The aroma is heavy in cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The taste is very similar to autumn maple by the Bruery, and disappointing by taste of a stout. The finish is dry, but not stout like. Not drain-pourable
