Pours a translucent brownish black on tap with dissipating tan head. Aroma is lactose with a lot of roast behind it. Taste is smoke and roasted malt, no real creaminess or lactose. Meh.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is very disappointing for a sweet stout. No aroma very watery. Little flavor slight dark malt. But not like a milk stout at all. No sweet potatoe notes. Very disappointing.

Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is roasted malt with a little bit of chocolate. I didn’t get much sweet potato in the taste but still a very nice tasting milk stout. I enjoyed this one.

Pours deep dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roast and caramel. I did not pick up any sweet potato. Taste is sweet with a touch of acidic tartness. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with soft carbonation.

Poured from draft at the avenue pub in New Orleans. Milky and light. Slight but taste. One of the milkier stouts I've had. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured black with a moderate head. Malted tones, some roast, and a hint of sweet potato on the nose. It was nice. Nothing too crazy or special about this one. But a nice drinking beer none the less. Some hints of light cocoa and lactose. Sort of reminded me of that dish with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Some roast and toasted sugars/malts. Certainly a stout worth trying.

Poured a deep black with very thin head. No nose to speak of. In the mouth it is metallic and has no body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The aroma is chocolate and malts. The taste is similar, with a dry cocoa taste and bitter, dark chocolate finish. Something tastes iron-y/tinny in it, reminds me of some blood mixed in for some reason. Not bad, won’t get another. 5% alcohol.

If you are thinking sweet potato on this one forget about it. There is no sweet potato flavors at all in it that I could taste. I was really hoping for maybe a hint of baked sweet potatoes but one can only hope. Anyway this is one is a really mild stout in both flavor and body. Other than a little roast nut flavoring it doesn’t have much to separate it from any other beers and it tastes more like an oatmeal stout than anything.
