On tap at eccentric cafe. Black pour with a sixteenth of an inch of offwhite head on top. Smells sweet and kind of like pumpkin or possibly sweet potato pie. Medium mouth feel with foamy carbonation. Vanilla licorice and sour taste, sour and bitter blends with spices like cinnamon. Finish is clean and watery, a little bit sour creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at whole foods, Auburn Hills. Pours dark chestnut, creamy tan head. Christmas Stout, sweet potato, cinnamon, roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is similar. Oh man, this would be such a great Christmas beer. I like this bad boy.

From an old note, couple months back I think. Draft, Giant Eagle, Grandview: brown pour, red tint, tan head. aroma of cocoa and spice. tastes are same with malty, nutmeg, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee. light dry finish.

on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, beige rim head, dots of lace. Taste is heavy malt laced with, yes, sweet potato. Very light fizz on the swallow, barely hopped (the potato is quite enough). Huge body, complex, quickly filling, but not a winning combo.

On Draught
Pours basically black with a big head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is roasty and earthy with some light sweetness. It’s somewhat spicy smelling and certainly features sweet potato.

The flavor is chocolaty and lightly smoky with a nice sweetness to it. The bitterness is mild but comes off in a sort espresso kind of way. The sweet potato flavor is pretty forward but also is pretty well controlled. There is some light caramel.

Everything plays well together in this one for sure.

Draft sample. The beer is a darker brown with a mhaki head of foam. The aroma is very reminiscent of sweet potatoes and brown sugar, like what you would have for a holiday meal. Somewhat sweet and a bit roasty. Medium body and belvety carbonation.

tap - Pours near black and smells of roasted malt and chocolate. It tastes of sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and maybe a little spice. Honestly I don’t notice anything that tasted or smelled like sweet potatoes, but it’s an enjoyable stout just the same.

Draught at Hop Cat. Nutmeg all over. Sweet potato pie. Thanksgiving desert. Maple syrup.

ContemplateBeer (1926) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 11, 2016
6 oz. pour at Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons). Aroma: Fairly straightforward chocolate with a lighter sweet, starchy component. Not as blatantly sweet potato infused as Lazy Magnolia’s sweet potato beer. Appearance: Solid black pour with light carbonation holding up a foamy light tan cap. Flavor: Lightly sweet chocolate malts up front with a touch of sweet potato towards the finish, which is mostly dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: For a Bell’s stout/porter, it was a pretty mundane experience.

On tap at Studio 35 at the Dude-a-Thon on 1/17/16. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, cinnamon, caramel and some roast. Malt and cinnamon flavor with a roasty finish.
