3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a thick brown head.
Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma.
Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee.
Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Pours black with a medium dense off white head. Has a roasted aroma that whimpers away. Fairly watery and unsatisfying due to the thin body. I have no idea what the sweet potatoes were supposed to contribute, but this is quite the pedestrian stout.

On tap Petrol Station. Pours a dark brown with ruby hue. The aroma is light roast and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with a rich coffee malt and lingering dry finish. Easy to drink a very good stout from Lazy Magnolia.

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 wasn’t what I expected (I was expecting something sweeter given the name).

12 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roased malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and some smoke. Didn’t get much sweet potato in aroma or taste. Interesting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours black with a thin khaki head that doesn’t leave any lacing. Not much on the nose. Some dark chocolate and raisin on the tongue. A bit of tartness and lactose on the finish. Solid but I’m not dying for another.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful sable with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast coffee and molasses as well as burnt malt. Flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate tones with a hint of smoky wood. Full-bodied texture has some good fizz. Didn’t get any sweet potato or milk notes, but it is still a tasty and enjoyable stout.
