3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

Kind of strange, where did the aroma go? Some coffee notes. Likelwise not too strong taste, small coffee, some choclate, little bitter. (Austin 201505)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Might be a Winter seasonal, but it held up, in my opinion, besides Iím too excited to get my 49th state of the USA in for a beer, no way, am I about to let this beer review slip away.
This was poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy cap of a head. No lacing.
The aroma starts off with some roasty coffee bean, marshmallow, then toffee, creamy espresso sweetness comes in nicely to round out. Light cocoa bean plays in the background.
The flavor returns the roasty coffee bean to blend nicely into the sweet marshmallow and toffee. Dry sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice semi-sessionable feel to it. Dry roastiness seems to hit decently.
Overall, good milk/sweet stout I could have again. Just glad to knock off a Mississippi beer finally. Only one more state to have a beer from all 50.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Flying Saucer, Nashville. Pours black with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor is quite bitter- lots of roasted bitterness and mild bitter chocolate. Some saltiness like a potato skin. Robust palate. Pretty good stout, actually, although it wasnít what I expected (I was expecting something sweeter given the name).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tao at cooter Brownís. Aroma of chocolate, cream, sweet potato, vanilla, light roast. The appearance is jet black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate and roasty. Not as sweet as the aroma. Not quite as thick in body as it should be, actually middle of the road. The finish is roasty, light resin, vegetable. Good overall.

12oz bottle. So, why does this not have flavor? Light soft roast, maybe mild lactose sweetness. All decent stuff and then its just empty, dirty water flavor. Iím flummoxed. Chalky.
