3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Might be a Winter seasonal, but it held up, in my opinion, besides I’m too excited to get my 49th state of the USA in for a beer, no way, am I about to let this beer review slip away.
This was poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy cap of a head. No lacing.
The aroma starts off with some roasty coffee bean, marshmallow, then toffee, creamy espresso sweetness comes in nicely to round out. Light cocoa bean plays in the background.
The flavor returns the roasty coffee bean to blend nicely into the sweet marshmallow and toffee. Dry sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice semi-sessionable feel to it. Dry roastiness seems to hit decently.
Overall, good milk/sweet stout I could have again. Just glad to knock off a Mississippi beer finally. Only one more state to have a beer from all 50.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12fl.oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a huge most good lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt, vanilla and earth. Taste of sweet roasted malt, chocolate, lactose and vanilla, quite nice!

Brownish beer. Coffee, caramel, tart and sweet potatoes come back in taste and aroma. Funny.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from bottle at the 2016 Tanglefoot Fest. It poured a very dark brown colour with beige foam, lasting with lace. With sweet potato and lactose, so a lot going on, aroma definitely better than flavour. Seemed very boozy and bourbon-like, despite only 4.7% abv. The best toasty/roasty aspects of a stout were kinda overpowered. Medium body and carbonation, mushy and sticky sweet aftertaste. Not great.

Klares dunkelbraun mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Röstmalzig, süßlich, dunkle Schokolade, etwas Kaffee, würzig, die Süßlartoffel mit Fantasie, interessant.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of lactose, cream, alcohol, roasted malt and a bit of coffee - decent, but not too strong. Light-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with a nice sweet potato and lactose flavour showing the sugary side, but the earthy, ashy flavours are also noticeable without much malt support. Aftertaste shows some smokey notes with a bit of peat and grain with a touch of sugars, some mild alcohol notes and a hint of bitterness from the coffee. Overall, not such a great beer, but worth trying if you like the style. I sapled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by a teammate and sampled after a hockey game on 23-March-2014 in Ballston (Arlington), Virginia.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep chocolate brown beer with a medium foamy tan head. Nose of condensed milk, semi-sweet chocolate, and almonds. Flavor is similar with a sweet chocolate core overlaid with light coffee and brown sugar. I don’t really taste sweet potatoes and find that to be a good thing. Somewhat light textured for a stout, this is decent, but nothing unusual or special.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown almost motor oil with a thick creamy viscous head. Aromas medium smoke, aged wood, earth, cocoa and slight olive. Flavors medium olive, aged wood, medium smoke. There really is no per say "potato taste". I guess it comes out through the noted complexities. Its lightly sweet and almost goes into a sour note (olive). The smoke aftertaste lingers but lightly. If this was sweeter it would be more likable. Interesting ingredient.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz pour from bottle into tulip. Pours dark, opposite, decent brown head. Nose is sweet, malty, a little spice, notable sweet potato here. Body is suprisingly light, almost thin for a stout. Taste boarders on dry with a little sweet potato on the finish. Moderate maltiness throughout. Mild as stouts go, though.
