3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was pleasantly surprised by this. I had major doubts about beer with sweet potatoes, but the flavor was very good, clearly a sweet stout. Palate was a little thin when compared to other stouts, but very good for being in a southern state. Very impressed.

bottle pour..fairly black color with tan decent head..nose has roasted nut character..some chocolate..bit of cinnamon..maybe nutmeg..mouthfeel is light bodied fairly thin palate with a little coating of sweetness..not really getting much of the sweet potato, but that is probably a good thing..happy to sample but real glad I only purchased a single of this..

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: dark brown, with a short-lived creamy tan head and no lacing. Aroma: beautiful smell of dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and milk chocolate, over a light earthy, toffee, leather note. Taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, vanilla, brulee’d sugar, with an earthy candied yam undertone. Finish: lingering bittersweet chocolate and vanilla cream, and again the earthy sweet potato note sticks around. Notes: Creamy palate, sweet but semi-dry flavors. Sweet potato adds a really nice note, and some other flavors (caramelized sugar, vanilla, etc) remind me of a Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole. Really quite enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a thick brown head.
Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma.
Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee.
Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Lactic chocolate malt, ash and sweet potato aroma. Black with moderate long lasting tan head. Sweet cocoa malt and roasted sweet potato flavor. Lightly bitter ash finish. Light body. Not bad - would have liked more body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, 1" creamy brown head, a few light strings of lace. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is thin, watery malt that grows much bigger in the palate, maybe adding some sweet potato in a somewhat burnt finish. Overall, it has a moment of big stout flavor, but mostly it doesn’t live up to the name.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours coal black w very minimal head. Can taste the sweet potato. Not as much of a coffee taste as most other stouts. A good beer I’d drink again but didn’t blow my socks off

Not as much sweet potato flavor as I had hoped for! I know this is the leading brewery in Mississippi and I love the name of their beers....just wish the taste matched!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from a BA trade from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, lactose creaminess, the sweet potatoes are faint but with warming became more noticeable, caramel, interesting combination of flavors, body is on the thin side.
