On tap at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Pours black with a medium dense off white head. Has a roasted aroma that whimpers away. Fairly watery and unsatisfying due to the thin body. I have no idea what the sweet potatoes were supposed to contribute, but this is quite the pedestrian stout.

On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with brown edges and thin mocha head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with a molasses sweetness mixed in as well as a chocolaty earthiness. The taste is smooth and sweet with highly roasted malts mixing with sweet notes of molasses along with an earthy note I canít put my finger on. It dries out a bit into the finish and after taste with dark roasted malts.

I finally got to try this, itís been on my wishlist for some time. I took my wife shopping, she took me to the mellow mushroom in flowood. Unfortunately, they have the habit of serving every beer icecold so I had to try to wait a bit to sample it. It was hard to get much aroma from it - definite maltiness and hint of sweet potato (could have been my imagination).
Medium, dark complexion without much head (I have a feeling they poured it off, as Iíve seen them do that before). Nice mouthfeel. Definitely has a coffee/malt complexion. Very solid beer and easy to drink. Got better as it warmed.
Canít wait until this is available in bottles.
