2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An unusual aroma - spry, doughy/spicy with just a hint of dark overcast. OK bottle - standard longneck. Poor labeling from a marketing standpoint - not particularly informative, attractive or readable. The beer itself has no residual head much, and is a dark, dark brown-black (as expected.) Oooh - twangy. Very sour up front, almost like a Berliner. Sourness dominates even the roast. Not very bitter. Blind, I would have never guessed that this was a stout - I’d have been very hard pressed to identify it. Pla doh aftertaste. Meh. ABC, Bull Run. Something is wrong with this beer, I will give it another shot on another day.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured black with a moderate head. Malted tones, some roast, and a hint of sweet potato on the nose. It was nice. Nothing too crazy or special about this one. But a nice drinking beer none the less. Some hints of light cocoa and lactose. Sort of reminded me of that dish with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Some roast and toasted sugars/malts. Certainly a stout worth trying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft from Casual Pint. Opaque black with a lasting quarter inch of spongy foam. Nose is dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee with sour cream. Flavor is dark chocolate, graham cracker, ash, chicory, lightly tart berries and cream. Medium body is smooth, but tingly with acidity and a medium carbonation. Nearly a sweet stout, but mostly well-balanced, tasty, and an easy drinker.

32 ounce growler bought in Greenville, poured a dark black color with aroams of light chocolate, roast, some brown sugar and a touch of milk. Flavors are the same with light sweet patato comming though, you have to really let this sit out for a bit to get the sweet patato flavor, but decent overall.
