Black pour. Big tan head with some red highlights. A little bit of lacing. A creamy almost squash aroma. Some molasses. Taste is creamy malt and molasses. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An unusual aroma - spry, doughy/spicy with just a hint of dark overcast. OK bottle - standard longneck. Poor labeling from a marketing standpoint - not particularly informative, attractive or readable. The beer itself has no residual head much, and is a dark, dark brown-black (as expected.) Oooh - twangy. Very sour up front, almost like a Berliner. Sourness dominates even the roast. Not very bitter. Blind, I would have never guessed that this was a stout - I’d have been very hard pressed to identify it. Pla doh aftertaste. Meh. ABC, Bull Run. Something is wrong with this beer, I will give it another shot on another day.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and nuts. Tart stachy quality. Chocolate, dark fruit, candy sugar. Strange one. Think I kind of like it.

Bottle courtesy of a buddy who got it through a monthly craft beer club. My first Mississippi brew. Intriguing description and novel use of sweet potatoes but it fell a bit flat for me. Poured a light syrupy deep brown with a thin khaki head. Mild coffee and cocoa aroma. First sip was thinner Han expected and he the texture was lackluster overall. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and a touch of charred toffee. Glad I had a chance to sample this Deep South brew but a bit disappointed in the end.

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.

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.
