Part of beer of the month club. Smells of dark nuts, coffee and cocoa. Taste is similar and very good. I do love a good stout and this one delivers. Made with sweet potatoes there is definitely a sweet finish to this one. I would definitely drink this again.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Pours a dark, dark brown with a one finger light brown head that very quickly fades away. Nose of licorice, roasted malt. The taste starts out with some coffee notes and typical stout roasted malts, but then becomes almost sour - my guess is that is the influence of the sweet potato. Did not like it - less enjoyable the 2nd time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A black body with red highlights. Initially it poured with a thick brown head but if faded away almost completely. Aroma had a nice mix of roasted and coffee malts and a nice semi-sweet chocolate profile. Flavor seemed to have more of it roasted qualities present than its sweeter notes. It wasnít a bold roasted flavor it was just the dominate flavor. A slight sense of smoke to it in the background. Aftertaste seemed to have more of a sweet potato peel flavor than the actual potato. It added a some sweetness and an earthy bitterness. Body was smooth and had a good mouth feel. No carbonation.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malt, licorice, coffee. Little sweet at first, then turns bitter. Iím not picking up the potatoes, but I like this one.

Bottle - pours black with a thin tan head. Has a coffee aroma and a smoke flavor. Had a thin malty body (too thin) and a sweet malty finish.

Pours nice reddish black with minimal foam. Nice aroma, sweet dark malt, some bitter coffee notes with a hint of chocolate. Maybe just a faint touch of sweet potato starchy sweetness in the nose. Taste is surprisingly thin for what was in the nose. I can only guess that may be a factor of working with lactose? Anyway, not bad... Not as good as I had hoped.

Says this is a Winter Seasonal, but it was available at the Owl Cafe Tap Room in the middle of summer. Not sure what, if any, effect this had on the beer. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Thin smell of coffee matches well with rather thin flavor. Seemed a touch thin and bubbly for style. One and done forever. Draft - Owl Cafe Tap Room - Apalachicola, FL

Bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium light brown head. A sweet nose of roast and lactose. The flavor is well done with light sweet roast, milky, some dark fruit, dusty dry potatoes, minerals. Really a lot of coal and minerals. Nice brew! Enjoyable.

Just poured out of the glass. Itís pitch black with a thin head. Looks rather heavy, like dark italian or french roasted java. It smells like black eyed peas, i actually smell sweet potato, and ground coffee...dare I say asparagus? Taste is where this beer is now leaving me behind. Itís like bland sweet potatoes and cold black coffee brewed with mineral water. It smells interesting, looks great and has a wonderful full bodied feeling in your mouth but the taste is just not for me. I can imagine many people liking this but the taste isnít for me. Regardless of my disappointment, itís a well made beer.

Deeply black with a dark brown hue. An almost sour roastiness - dark dried fruit, fig, plum. The flavor is embodied by aggressive roast on a chalky tart delivery. A decent novelty that had me thinking of gently sour porters. Of course, this may not have been intended.
