Pours a dark brown with minimal quickly dissipating head. Aroma is very sweet and chocolaty. Flavor is more roast than chocolate and actually a bit harsh. Fairly thin bodied. Finishes drier than I had expected. Overall good beer.

No head, but it is a sweet stout with no bite to and a bit on the thin side for my taste. It?s not a bad beer if you like sweet stout you should give it a try.

Slightly sweet smell, taste is smooth and creamy...slight bitterness over the maltyness...finishes crisp, smooth and a touch watery

Bottle. Not bad. Very dark almost black in color. No head to speak of. Didnít smell or taste very much sweet potato. Taste is more traditional stout in flour.

Aroma: Sweet potato is not apparent in the nose; lactose more noticeable along with pleasant coffee notes and very light chocolate. Appearance: Dark chestnut brown with a slim tan head that culminates with a bubbly ring. Flavor: Almost like a session foreign stout; a touch of light berry esters up front that transitions into coffee; chocolate is nearly absent and still no sweet potato. Palate: Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Despite the lowish rating, I could drink this all day. It doesnít have the flavor presence of the top tier stouts, but itís a fascinating little beer. After rinsing my palate with a glass of water- a lingering, but unmistakable sweet potato flavor finally made an appearance. A concept worth repeating. Bottle at 4.5%

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Appearance: this beer is pitch black, even when held up to the light itís only transparent on the outermost edges, pours with a large creamy tan head Aroma: sweet, heavy cream, strong coffee, chocolate, Taste: sweet, coffee, dark roasted malt, has a very light bitter finish, I can taste the milk too Palate: this is where this beer shines in my opinion, has a very soft velvety mouthfeel, minimal coffee bitter aftertaste, average carbonation Overall: the more stouts I drink the more I like them, this one has a low abv and would actually be a session stout, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

c/o GreatDane1632 - Thank you Dane! 1st MS beer. Aroma - this is the only place where the sweet potato showed up for me. Itís the yam/sweet potato candied thing going on, but you have to hone in on it. You can tell itís going to be sweet in taste, there is also nice roast quality to it. There is also a little coffee tucked in there as well. Appearance - body is black; liquid is opaque; the head is light brown/tan starts about 1/2" and it eventually settles into a thin slice Taste - is primarily sweet, there is a bit of roast, some chocolate, and a bit of roast. Palate - body is full; the texture is creamy; the carbonation is average; the finish is a nice mild roast, very silky smooth and enjoyable.

Pour out of 12 bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, hints of slight lactose into some slight acidic malt, hints of a earthy note in there as well. Taste is a mix of sweet sugary notes, slight lactose into some earth, hints of roast, coffee, slight chocolate, finishing slightly acidic, dry.

Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Bodyís a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.
