3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A delicious and robust stout with depth of flavor and character. Has a slight hint of the lactose sweetness added to it, and while I pick up the abundant coffee I'm missing sweet potato, although exactly what that should taste like in a beer is beyond me.
Creamy on the front pallet with sufficient carbonation, this is a winter's perfect beer, best enjoyed right after the coffee pot has run dry.

Draft in pint glass. Typical opaque stout. Thinner and more watery than the typical stout. I wondered what that unusual taste was on the finish until I looked it up on Ratebeer. I didn’t guess sweet potato . . . guessed pickles!

Great stout. Kind of sweet to taste and just a smooth feel. Pours very dark with an espresso colored head. Good head but little lacing. Great overall stout.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Pours out with a deep chocolate head. Aroma is of chocolate and bitters.
Has a slightly bitter finish, earthy flavor, and it leaves a thick, full palate.

32 ounce growler bought in Greenville, poured a dark black color with aroams of light chocolate, roast, some brown sugar and a touch of milk. Flavors are the same with light sweet patato comming though, you have to really let this sit out for a bit to get the sweet patato flavor, but decent overall.

Pours black with a decent tan head that stays around for while. Aroma of coffee and dark malts with a coffee taste on the initial drink. I could not detect the Sweet Potato but will try on the another attempt. Slightyly dry finish.

Near black pour with a nice khaki head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is the same with some caramel sweetness. Really nice flavor overall, sweet potato doesn’t contribute much. Easy to drink.

Tap. Poured a deep black with a two-finger caramel-colored head. Didn’t get the sweet potatoes coming through as advertised but did pick up the roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors. Great, typical stout - not too sweet from the lactose but just sweet enough to be very drinkable without losing the classic stout flavor (instead of being a milk stout).

Pours a deep black with brown highlights. Flavor is every-other-stout chocolate and coffee. Nose is plastic chocolate and coffee. Average mouthfeel. Meh.

Deep black, fluffy off white head. Aroma of roasting sweet potatoes. Flavor is nothing, very thin, some roasty malt bit more like skim milk and cigarette butts.
