3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a thick black color with a medium tan head that fades quickly to a ring atop the liquid. The aroma blends a strong vegetal sweet potato scent with undercurrents of cream and roasted malts. The taste is initially mildly umami, but that quickly subsides to a heavy sourness, slight malt bitterness, and mild sweetness; however, the aftertaste returns to a strong roastiness. The palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, roasted nuts, light coffee, and a hint of dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger light brown head that quickly fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and caramel. There is some moderate sour fruits in the middle. The finish has light-moderate coffee, light roasted nuts, and dusty flavors. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the sourness is clearly not supposed to be here and really hurts my rating.

Bottle->nonic. Deep brown with thick creamy tan head. A: chocolate and roasted malt, lactose. T: bitter cocoa, malt, metallic notes. An odd note of what presumably is sweet potato. Thin. Not particularly good.

Keg @ Boylan Heights. Deep brown with a small tan head. Nose is pretty creamy and sweet. Hazelnut coffee creamer. Brown sugar. Chocolate syrup. Taste is similar. Slightly thin nutty chocolate water. Nutella and brown sugar. Light body, creamy mouthfeel. Sort of boring.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, compliments of shrubber85, poured into a shaker. Black with small dark brown highlights and medium/small light brown head. Aroma is light lactose, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly creamy texture, and good medium-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt, some sweet potato, and hints of lactose. Not overly sweet, pretty good, shrubber85 with a state tick.

Malt and fresh bread on the nose. Creamy dark head. Toasted malt, spice, and molasses. Not my favorite, but interesting. I don't get much sweet potato

Bottle. Sweet smell. Pours a dark chocolate brown with tan head. Tastes of spices, sweet cream, bitter cocoa, and a little coffee. Lingering coffee bitterness. Very thin. I was expecting more.

nice potato soup thickness and a caramel and sweetish milky body with light flavor of dark cocoa that is slightly burnt. a bit of pecan in the sweetness and perhaps a bit of vanilla.
