Tmoney99 (12415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Draft sample. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex toasted malt, sweet potato aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy roasted sweet starch dry finish of moderate duration. This is a solid complex brew.

DrSilverworm (9107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2014
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 it’s 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.. I’m surprised by how much I ended up liking this. Clearly, Bell’s knows stouts. And they’ve done almost every type, apparently. Now sweet potato. Keep ’em coming!

arminjewell (8853) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2014
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.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Pint at the Eccentric Cade, Dec 22, 2007. Dark black and brown in color. A bit of a strange flavor, of course, with some chewy, starchy flavors and a hefty foreign-stout like quality, but I’m not really getting the sweet potatoes. It’s more like a sweet or foreign stout that used regular potatoes, because the potato flavor and the starches are there, but that sweet tuber flavor of the yams is missing. Has a bit of a pasty dryness in the back, with light roast.

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.
