Tap - small foamy head, medium copper color, definite sweet potato aroma and flavor, mild cinnamon/clove spice, overall pretty good, wasn't sure what to expect but definitely something a little different and good

Draft, sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Cinnamon, nutmeg and other baking spices. Interesting concept, but nothing too special here.

On tap at the Rock Island location, pours an amberish orange with a thin white head, the aroma is of veggies like yams and spices, the flavor has a good amount of spices on the front end with a wierd finish, I really donít like sweet potatoes so itís probably just me, but not a fan.

On tap at the brewpub. (2007) Delicious spices and vanilla make this beer for me. (2008) Not as good this year... not enough vanilla... still tasty and interesting though!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at the brewery. Golden and slightly hazy. Floral nose of straw, potatoes, some spices like coriander and then some sweet potpourri notes. Almost squash-like. Flavor is fresh, bready, starchy, with a light Belgian yeast spice, overall fairly mild but itís noticeable. Very interesting, finishing with a floral vanilla note. Overall tasty.

You could have told me that this was a pumpkin ale and I would have believed you. Itís a hazy, straw colored beer sporting a creamy white head. The aroma is all spice, including allspice, as well as cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet but not cloyingly so, the flavor is all about the spices as well. Drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange color with thin white head. Smells of malty caramel and vanilla. Sweet on the tongue with cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and sweet potato pie flavors. Very interesting beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I love sweet potatoes: pie, soup, baked, fries, whatever. This sounded interesting. From another growler from good beer buddy Rob (RooftopRogue). Burnt orange in color with a small beige head. The aroma was mostly spices: cinnamon, nutmeg. The sweet potato aroma and flavor are overshadowed. The texture is thin and watery and the carbonation is lively. A decent novelty beer but one that would soon grow old.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at the brewpub. Normally I donít care for spice-vegetable beer, but this was different. Aptly named as the aroma and flavor of sweet potatoes is right up front with some nutmeg, cinnamon notes in the background. slightly overcarbonated, but it had a nice crisp finish. for a style I donít usually enjoy, this was a very nice surprise.
