3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Toasted malt aroma with a khaki diminishing head. Initial toasted chocolate taste finishing with a sour yeast above average lasting finishing. I do not tend to like stouts but this one I could drink.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear dark ruby-brown with a large fizzy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of mild roast, lactose, spice. The taste is roast, potatoes, earth, lactose, tart finish. Thin-medium bodied, decent balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Suttree. Pours opaque brown with ring of khaki head. Aroma: milky; chocolate; sweet potato pie, baking spice and all. Taste: chocolate, some spice, moderately sweet; sweet potato really comes through surprisingly. Again, like pie. Light bitterness in the finish. Medium body, creamy texture. Overall: I came looking for a random state tick, I left with a surprisingly tasty beer. Nice!

Bottle shared with Chris -- thanks. Mississippi tick, oh yeah! Pours dark (obviously) with a tan head. Gently sweet, roast and ash, mild sourness, definitely lactic, sweet potatoes all up in your face (though I wouldn’t even know it except for the recent SN beer camp 12-pack experience). A bit thin but otherwise unobjectionable.
