Tap at SAMs. Damn keep losing my rating-twice in a row now. Fat Fingers. Anyway, this was bangin. Just like Harry Magills I had earlier in the week. On par quality-wise with some of the best batch 7000 bottles I’ve had. Spices are light ginger, nutmeg, brown sugar but incredibly well blended and some of the best mouthfeels ever. Wonder if they will sell me a growler after hours? :)

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe 3/4/09 Dark brown pour with a cream head, and good lacing. Aromas of cinnamon brown sugar and molasses kiss the nose. Upon first taste , notes of cinnamon, brown sugar, dark fruit, and nutmeg greet the tongue. Not much in the way of sweet potato flavor except for the non cloying sweetness. Smooth creamy texture with a slight bitter at the end. Sure would be nice to see this bottled.

ebmalon (62) - Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at roosters beak. Dark caramel color with half finger of tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice. Great mouth feel...very full and robust with little carbonation. Roasted malt, some coffee and a little bread up front. Finished with mellow sweetness that tied everything together. Overall very well balanced and enjoyable.

From tap to small nonic. Pours a very dark brown, nearly black, hazy, with a tan head. The head has decent retention and leaves some durable, sticky lacing. Smell: lightly roasted sweet malts with sweet potato - not dramatic but well-tempered. Taste: similar to the smell. Moderately sweet up front but not overly so, and more balanced by the finish. Light chocolate and dark fruit notes appear towards the finish. Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium-plus body with rather lively carbonation. Some dryness in the finish. Overall: You may already be inclined to try this sweet stout out of curiosity, but this is a pleasing and interesting beer that is worth seeking out as a high quality stout.

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.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe and served in an English pint glass. This stout poured a dark brown with a nice rocky head of orangish/tan foam that slightly lasted. Some faint lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer consisted of roasted malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavor was made up of mild coffee, roasted notes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and just a hint of sweet potato. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. This was a very interesting stout. I am usually not a huge fan of sweet potatos in general, but it worked well in this beer. Nice job!

Served on draft at Brewvival. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a large brown creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, tart fruits, potatoes and spicy notes. The taste is earthy and vegetal notes, potatoes, roasted malts, sugar and tart fruits. Medium bodied.
