It is a Sweet Potato Cream Stout, AWESOME! Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. 08 may 09. Dark brown pour. Aroma of roast and some coffee. Flavor has a nice roast, odd sweetness, some chicory, and light coffee. Considering it is a beer from Mississippi, this beer is awesome. A+

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had several times on tap @ J. Clyde
A - Pours a handsome dark brown color with a very thin head which disappears very quickly. Iíve never experienced any lacing on the glass with this beer.
S - Nice aromas of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate...smells very robust. Hop aromas are not present but still smells very nice.
T - Disappointing flavor follows such a fine smelling beer. The flavors present in the aroma just donít pop in the taste. It has a relatively thin/watery feel which seems to take away from the big flavors I expect to find. Slight bitterness balance out the dark malt flavors.
M - Thinner than I like in a stout
D - This is a very easy drinking stout. Itís relative light body make it very drinkable and one could have a ton of these in a drinking session.

Another great selection by this brewery. No heavy flavor or taste. This beer is full of nice subtleties. The sweet potato is a great addition. I recommend this to anyone likes a great stout or someone who isnt too sure about dark heavy beers. This one is easy drinking and lighter than most stouts.

Draft sample at the Free the Hops 2009 Blastoff Party. Black in the glass with a tan head that had some lasting a light lace. Roasty malt aroma with milk chocolate undertones. The flavor also found roast and chocolate with some coffee. Medium body with a coffee aftertaste. Tasty!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the flying saucer in memphis and at J Clydes in birmingham. Very dark brown pour with no real amount of tan head. Nose is chocolate and has a slight nuttiness with coffee notes. Flavor is mainly a sweet chocolate. I was able to detect a hint of sweet potatoe on the finish, but I think that was only cause I was told to look for it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a party pig into a Lazy Magnolia pint glass.
Pours dark brown with only the slightest amount of light showing through the edges. The head was a massive light mocha which lingers as a cap and leaves good lacing.
The aroma is fairly mild and dominated by dark roasted malts and lactose. There is also some sweet sugary notes that might be attributable to the sweet potatoes.
The taste is even sweeter than the aroma suggests with some chocolate, brown sugar and sweet potatoes. There is still some roasted malts in the background but this a very sweet stout.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation.
This is an extremely drinkable stout and one of the better sessionable stouts I’ve had in a while. I’m glad I had the opportunity to pick this up, and it is, without a doubt, the best beer I’ve had from my home state of Mississippi.

on tap at Hal & Malís-pours a rich foamy brown head and black color. Aroma is sweet dark malt-roasty/molasses/chocolate, hint of earthy hops bite. Taste is sweet dark malt-roasty/coffee/molasses/chocolate, secondary earthy hops bite. Borderline porter. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is roasted malts and barley. Lovely very dark with thin off white head. This beer is really dominated by the barley flavors of toast and bitterness. Light very nice influence of sweet potatoes. Nice mouthfeel. As a lover of beers with dark roasted grains this was an enjoyable one. Second only to Blue Heron in the Lazy Mag lineup. Well crafted.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Pours a deep, dark brownish black with a huge beige head. Subtle earthy malt aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet wit ha toasted malt thing going and lots of lactic smoothness and creaminess. Didnít get much of the sweet potatoes. Very, very smooth and creamy on the palate ... almost too smooth. You could drink this stuff like water. Very tasty.
