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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Big and rich character, and I don’t mean the country band. Sweet and quite creamy. Not a trace of any sweet potato, but after seeing the canned yams at the brewery in Kiln, I had to give this try. I’d guess they add the thick body, maybe some of the sweetness. Otherwise, you’d just find this as a nice milky, creamy sweet stout. (#4052, 12/18/2010)

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.

Light roast here and the potato makes for a good infusion here. Pretty easy to drink. Light bittersweet finish. Bottle.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy dark brown head that faded and left minimal lacing. The flavor was roasty, licorice, floral and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, roasty and malty with a hint of anise and moderate floral hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.
