If you are thinking sweet potato on this one forget about it. There is no sweet potato flavors at all in it that I could taste. I was really hoping for maybe a hint of baked sweet potatoes but one can only hope. Anyway this is one is a really mild stout in both flavor and body. Other than a little roast nut flavoring it doesn’t have much to separate it from any other beers and it tastes more like an oatmeal stout than anything.

12 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roased malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and some smoke. Didn’t get much sweet potato in aroma or taste. Interesting.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Very dark and opaque. Aroma is roasty with malt. Interesting and pretty good. Sweet but not overly so, definite roastiness and some flavor of sweet potato. Also notice a slight metallic aftertaste

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 wasn’t 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. I’m 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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
