Pours brown with a tan head. The aroma has smooth roast, lactose, mild squash and smooth veggie notes that kinda work. It has a medium body with very soft carbonation. The flavor starts with roast, chocolate, sweet potatoes and some milk. The finish is dry and a bit chalky.

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.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 ounce pint - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Very dark brown, nearing black in color with a scant, tan-hued head up on top.
Smell: Lightly roasty scent, hinting at a cup of weak coffee brewed for someone on a strict coffee budget or someone who really doesn’t like coffee all that much. A bit of chocolate, vanilla. The nose isn’t unpleasant, but it isn’t one to reach out and grab you.
Taste: A sweetish taste of dark maltiness, though not overtly flavorful following the example of the aroma, offering up only mild flavors of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness reminiscent of sweet grape. Very subtle bitterness. Semi-dry, malty, lightly minerally finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A pedestrian brew, lacking presence. It left my hankering for something better, so I opted for a Bell’s Kalamazoo for the next round.

It is a Sweet Potato Cream Stout, AWESOME! Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. 08 may 09. Dark brown pour. Aroma of roast and some coffee. Flavor has a nice roast, odd sweetness, some chicory, and light coffee. Considering it is a beer from Mississippi, this beer is awesome. A+
