UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Good stout. Sweet potato was a good idea but not very noticeable. Chocolate roasty aroma. Taste is very similar to left hand. Sweet clean finish. ---Rated via iPhone

Brownish beer. Coffee, caramel, tart and sweet potatoes come back in taste and aroma. Funny.

Sampled from bottle at the 2016 Tanglefoot Fest. It poured a very dark brown colour with beige foam, lasting with lace. With sweet potato and lactose, so a lot going on, aroma definitely better than flavour. Seemed very boozy and bourbon-like, despite only 4.7% abv. The best toasty/roasty aspects of a stout were kinda overpowered. Medium body and carbonation, mushy and sticky sweet aftertaste. Not great.

Klares dunkelbraun mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Röstmalzig, süßlich, dunkle Schokolade, etwas Kaffee, würzig, die Süßlartoffel mit Fantasie, interessant.

Dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of lactose, cream, alcohol, roasted malt and a bit of coffee - decent, but not too strong. Light-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with a nice sweet potato and lactose flavour showing the sugary side, but the earthy, ashy flavours are also noticeable without much malt support. Aftertaste shows some smokey notes with a bit of peat and grain with a touch of sugars, some mild alcohol notes and a hint of bitterness from the coffee. Overall, not such a great beer, but worth trying if you like the style. I sapled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by a teammate and sampled after a hockey game on 23-March-2014 in Ballston (Arlington), Virginia.

floydslip (342) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Deep chocolate brown beer with a medium foamy tan head. Nose of condensed milk, semi-sweet chocolate, and almonds. Flavor is similar with a sweet chocolate core overlaid with light coffee and brown sugar. I don’t really taste sweet potatoes and find that to be a good thing. Somewhat light textured for a stout, this is decent, but nothing unusual or special.

Pours dark brown almost motor oil with a thick creamy viscous head. Aromas medium smoke, aged wood, earth, cocoa and slight olive. Flavors medium olive, aged wood, medium smoke. There really is no per say "potato taste". I guess it comes out through the noted complexities. Its lightly sweet and almost goes into a sour note (olive). The smoke aftertaste lingers but lightly. If this was sweeter it would be more likable. Interesting ingredient.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 24, 2016
12 oz pour from bottle into tulip. Pours dark, opposite, decent brown head. Nose is sweet, malty, a little spice, notable sweet potato here. Body is suprisingly light, almost thin for a stout. Taste boarders on dry with a little sweet potato on the finish. Moderate maltiness throughout. Mild as stouts go, though.

Nice looking stout, bubbly beige head. Aroma of roasted nuts, tobacco, caramel and toffee. Pretty light and thin for a stout. Tastes like a not very sweet Mr. Goodbar...some earthiness too. Not bad, very drinkable.

12 oz bottle poured. Bottled on 1/21/16. Picked up in St. Pete. Mississippi beer! Took forever. Pours midnight black with a tan active fizz head. Sweet chocolate, slight metallic, and almost a pumpkin presentation aroma. Flavor is sweet cream, milk chocolate, hints of roast, and an all around sweet finish. Not a bad stout here. A little different. I like it.
