Draft at big bold beer fest. Pours a deep brown with a thin light brown head. Aroma is sweet, yams, light roasted malts. Same in the flavor. Light yam sweetness. Decent, kinda thin.

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.

Imaena (2193) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - DEC 14, 2014
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.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2014
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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2014
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.

Patrickctenchi (6037) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Draft: 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.... Great stuff....
