3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great amber - a faint hint of sweet potato in there that works very well with the sweet taste of caramel from the malt and spicy notes from the hops. Quite light and watery - worked very well chilled and accompanying Japanese food. Great find.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle from Tokyu Food Garden, Tokyo. Dark amber - brown. Sweet taste from the sweet potatoes. Not too sweet, though. Sweet as Belgian ales. Not a bad idea at all, but not for hoppy heads.

Dark mahogany color with a small light tan head.
Dark fruits, vomit, fermented rowan and sickly sweetness in the aroma.
Dark fruits, raisins, sweetness and malt in the flavor. Watery. Hides the 7% very well though. But unfortunately quite bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours clear mahogany brown with no head. Pleasant aroma - candy / caramel with hints of bread, raisins. Medium body with reasonable carbonation. Taste is sweet but not unbalanced; there’s some tart notes in the foretaste and a hint of bitterness in the finish. The sweetness is caramel toffee. There’s some interesting peppery spicy boozy otes in the mid palate. Pleasant and unusual, wouldn’t know it was sweet potato.

I like the idea. Bit boozy and bity taste a bit sweet but not sure if it is from sweet potato. Overall not that exciting beer.

Can't tell what color. 12o bottle pour somewhere weird in Chicago. White head. Rotten and sour aroma and taste. Gross mostly.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
333ml bottle. Poured mahogany color with a thick white head. Sweet malty, cereals, toast. Had this quite warm, but don’t get that much aroma of it. Flavor has sweetness, caramel malt, biscuity notes and toast. Long sweet finish. Hides 7% well but quite dull. Quite bulky at times.
