Deeply black with a dark brown hue. An almost sour roastiness - dark dried fruit, fig, plum. The flavor is embodied by aggressive roast on a chalky tart delivery. A decent novelty that had me thinking of gently sour porters. Of course, this may not have been intended.

Odd very thing and watery stout. Pours a brownish translucence and the flavor follows suit. Tastes watered down with no differentiating elements of sweet potato.

Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip. Very dark, nearly black pour and mostly opaque. Off-white tan head of two fingers. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Taste was rather simple with coffee bitterness, chocolate notes, little dark fruit and a very dry finish. I was expecting a little bit more out of it. Mouth was also pretty carbonated compared to other stouts.

A bit more bland than I would’ve thought and I’m not sure what the sweet potato added to this. Nice mouthfeel, though, very creamy. Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.

on draft at husk brewing, just an ashy thin weak stout, not sweet really at all, very plain and cheap tasting.

Appearance dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of a stout very little on the node. Taste bitter with coffee overtones lingers on the palate

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. No lacing.. Roasted malt aroma. Fairly thin and astringent, but the flavors are nice - caramel and raisin notes.

Fairly typical stout with a nice creaminess. No sweet potato comes through in the taste but there’s a bit of chocolate and coffee.
