3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro at Avenue Pub. Black in colour with low carbonation. Aromas are of fruity English yeast, chocolate, and charcoal. Flavours are of milk chocolate, coffee grounds, lactose, and malted milk. A bit mouthcoating, but the charred malts cleans things up pretty well. An above average sweet stout. I doubt I could drink more than one pint of this in an evening.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Music City Brewer’s Fest. Draft. Pours dark with a light tan head. No sweet potatoes detected, but quite tasty. Fairly sweet, a bit of fruitiness, touch of licorice, chocolate, and coffee. Don’t have a real strong memory of this one. I should try it again.

The sweet potatoes is not very pronounced, but it is one of the best sweet stouts I’ve had. Has all the roasted flavors I like in a beer.
