[ bottle ][ 1oz ][ @DC tasting ][ ? ][ mini tumbler ][ 02.15.15 ]
sepia with a thin coffee ring, large bubbled. Cigarette ash nose, oppressively smoky, lightly earthy. Sugary front palate hides smoke, but oxidized and woody through the sticky, thin finish.

A bit more bland than I wouldíve thought and Iím not sure what the sweet potato added to this. Nice mouthfeel, though, very creamy. Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by me... in the library... just now.
Pours basically black with a big tan head and some nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lightly roasty and mildly sweet. It does smell like sweet potatoes and I canít get upset about that. Itís got some mild molasses and coffee in there, fine enough.
The flavor is very very molasses like with a roasty bitterness and a medium level of sweetness. The sweet potatoes are noticeable but less so than they are in the aroma. Itís got some baking cocoa, some espresso, and a light bit of caramel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(from 2012 notes)
Growler fill from the first pour out of a new keg at Moondog Growlers. Poured about 1 hour later into a Porter Bar goblet.
Pours a dark reddish-brown, and sits almost black in the glass. A modest but creamy tan head fades fast and leaves little lacing.
Aroma: dark roasted chocolate malt, sweet with perhaps some sweet potato; faint earthy hop notes.
T: A sweet and creamy flavor, with hints of milf chocolate and coffee. Blemished by a faint sour note that, to be fair, is characteristic of milk stouts. The taste actually deteriorates a little with warming, becoming more sour and less malty, unusual for a stout.
M: Creamy smooth; full bodied; acceptable low carbonation.
O: Another (with pecan beer) disappointing offering from this brewer, but better than the pecan ale and certainly a decent brew.

Pour is a black with a very small tan head. Aroma is a decent roast malt with some bitter chocolate. Flavor is a nice char malt with some sweetness and caramel. I did not get an sweet potato but thatís alright itís not my favorite thing. Decent stout though. This beer from this brewer I thought I would like the least I actually liked this best.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Bodyís a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a translucent brownish black on tap with dissipating tan head. Aroma is lactose with a lot of roast behind it. Taste is smoke and roasted malt, no real creaminess or lactose. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, possibly from Gatlinburg. Dark stout pour with a light brown head that dissipates quickly. Sweet coffee aroma. Flavor is a touch thin but leads with some coffee. Okay.
