2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Dark copper color. Small size, dark beige head, stays. Pine needles, dirty, wax, earthy, metallic, copper and some far behind all that in aroma. Very weird aroma. Earthy, starchy, pine needles, roast and grainy taste. Starchy roast in aftertaste. Tingly hops and medium bitterness. Very weird brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown red. Below normal head volume with little retention or lacing.
The nose is rather nice, sweet potato, molasses, light caramel and maybe other vegetables or fruit.
Light body with a texture a bit heavier than water. Below normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish.
The flavor is unique, but not bad if you like sweet potatoes. Sweet potato becomes the base with a bit of hop bitterness arriving in the middle. As it progresses, the sweetness takes on a molasses note with a hint of caramel.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malt, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, bitter, caramel, alcohol, and malt. Overall: ok, a bit too boozy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish-brown beer, small beige head. Nose is sweet, raisins, bready and malty caramel. Flavor is malt, some bread, caramel, more raisins, slighty vegetal. Finishes with more booze than I expected and sweet potato notes. A bit weird.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
L: pours a lovely dark reddish copper, with a quickly dissipating head.
S: some mild scents, a little sweet potato, malt, sweetened caramel, a bit like raisin chocolate.
T: quite boozy but nice, definite caramel, the sweet potato is coming through more, quite earthy. Lower down the taste of brown sugar really takes over.
F: a touch of alcohol burn at the backend, a bit of spritz up front.
O: it’s good, the most complex of Coedo’s regular line-up. Would have again.

On tap at Watermans Beer Market 170515. I must say that I didn’t detect much sweet potato in the flavour or the aroma. Deep amber colour with plenty of maltiness.
