Dark beer out of the bottle. There is very little carbonation in this bottle. I got some brown bubbles when I poured but no head and not much action on the tongue. Molasses, burnt grain and buttered toast in the nose. Lots of lactic sweetness with burnt chocolate, toast, sweetened coffee and some grassy hops in the finish. Okay novelty stout.

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.

On draft at the flying saucer in memphis and at J Clydes in birmingham. Very dark brown pour with no real amount of tan head. Nose is chocolate and has a slight nuttiness with coffee notes. Flavor is mainly a sweet chocolate. I was able to detect a hint of sweet potatoe on the finish, but I think that was only cause I was told to look for it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, 1" creamy brown head, a few light strings of lace. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is thin, watery malt that grows much bigger in the palate, maybe adding some sweet potato in a somewhat burnt finish. Overall, it has a moment of big stout flavor, but mostly it doesnít live up to the name.
