Dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a light amount of char as well as some heavily roasted malt. There is also a hint of sugary sweetness. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Courtesy of Nick

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, roasted nuts, light coffee, and a hint of dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger light brown head that quickly fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and caramel. There is some moderate sour fruits in the middle. The finish has light-moderate coffee, light roasted nuts, and dusty flavors. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the sourness is clearly not supposed to be here and really hurts my rating.

Keg @ Boylan Heights. Deep brown with a small tan head. Nose is pretty creamy and sweet. Hazelnut coffee creamer. Brown sugar. Chocolate syrup. Taste is similar. Slightly thin nutty chocolate water. Nutella and brown sugar. Light body, creamy mouthfeel. Sort of boring.

Suttree (5339) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Black. Smokey, sweet aroma. Flavor is coffee and stout, plus some odd background notes. I see that that it is brewed with sweet potatoes. When I sampled it, I got some odd flavors and smells, but I didn’t immediately think sweet potato. But it works, I guess.

Brown black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is roasted malt and light coffee. Flavor is slightly sweet start with light chocolate, a hinto coffee, and roasted malt. Good malt bitter. Medium bodied and a touch fizzy. Bitter lingers on the back of the tongue. Ok beer

kramer (5243) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a pitch black body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is roasty and sweet with some coffee notes and lactose. The flavor is not overly sweet, just the right balance between the lactose and the roasted malt. Can’t say I would ever even think there was sweet potato in here, but it is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clinginess on the finish from the lactose, light fizzy carbonation. Think I might like to try this on nitro maybe. Pretty nice all in all. One of the better Lazy Mag beers.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Aroma is straightforward Irish stout, nice coal and asphalt mellow roast and if I search I can find caramelized sweet potato. Ok not really. There is no discernible sweet potato character but the beer has solid body is well constructed. Very dry. Nice stout.
