From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. No lacing.. Roasted malt aroma. Fairly thin and astringent, but the flavors are nice - caramel and raisin notes.

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.

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 that’s alright it’s not my favorite thing. Decent stout though. This beer from this brewer I thought I would like the least I actually liked this best.

A bit more bland than I would’ve thought and I’m not sure what the sweet potato added to this. Nice mouthfeel, though, very creamy. Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.
