2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a silky, nearly black with a rich taupe-brown head. Creme brûlée, coffee, and a light scorched note on the nose. Moderately thick and slick, but disappointingly lifeless mouthfeel. The scorched note in the aroma dominates the flavor. It even lingers after the finish. Quick not of brown sugar sweetness underneath. Whit of a tart taste runs through. Horehound candy is noted as well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black body with subtle mahogany highlights beneath a frothy, evenly textured, khaki head fading back to a thin, incomplete ring and very minimal lace
Pleasant aromas and flavors with mild richness focused on vanilla and chocolatey roots with dark caramel and subtle treacle and smoke opening to a layer of coffee offering a compliment to the earthy potato tones, just a hint of clear sweet potato notes as this one builds up through the delicately coating, mildly spritzy, softly drying, light-plus body offering minimal roasty-sweet residuals

Bottle in fl. Very sweet aroma. No resemblance to stout. Hard to place despite familiar taste. Caramel galore. Just not very good

The strangest beer I've ever tasted. Oddly lacking in any noticeable aftertaste

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.
