Draft. Deep brown/black body. Tan head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet coffee, milk. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Herbal flavor, along with a some metallic acidity, in the finish. Dry and drinkable but less than notable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great drinking beer! Served with a thick, creamy, fine tan head and some lace. Color was an opaque brown black. Aroma was chocolate, a bit of coffee, roasted malts. Flavor was like aroma plus nut meats and a great bitter to sweet balance. Body and carbonation were appropriate to style and good. Finish was like flavor and medium in length. Session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a party pig into a Lazy Magnolia pint glass.
Pours dark brown with only the slightest amount of light showing through the edges. The head was a massive light mocha which lingers as a cap and leaves good lacing.
The aroma is fairly mild and dominated by dark roasted malts and lactose. There is also some sweet sugary notes that might be attributable to the sweet potatoes.
The taste is even sweeter than the aroma suggests with some chocolate, brown sugar and sweet potatoes. There is still some roasted malts in the background but this a very sweet stout.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation.
This is an extremely drinkable stout and one of the better sessionable stouts I’ve had in a while. I’m glad I had the opportunity to pick this up, and it is, without a doubt, the best beer I’ve had from my home state of Mississippi.

Odd very thing and watery stout. Pours a brownish translucence and the flavor follows suit. Tastes watered down with no differentiating elements of sweet potato.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro at Avenue Pub. Black in colour with low carbonation. Aromas are of fruity English yeast, chocolate, and charcoal. Flavours are of milk chocolate, coffee grounds, lactose, and malted milk. A bit mouthcoating, but the charred malts cleans things up pretty well. An above average sweet stout. I doubt I could drink more than one pint of this in an evening.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black body with red highlights. Initially it poured with a thick brown head but if faded away almost completely. Aroma had a nice mix of roasted and coffee malts and a nice semi-sweet chocolate profile. Flavor seemed to have more of it roasted qualities present than its sweeter notes. It wasn’t a bold roasted flavor it was just the dominate flavor. A slight sense of smoke to it in the background. Aftertaste seemed to have more of a sweet potato peel flavor than the actual potato. It added a some sweetness and an earthy bitterness. Body was smooth and had a good mouth feel. No carbonation.

Black pour. Big tan head with some red highlights. A little bit of lacing. A creamy almost squash aroma. Some molasses. Taste is creamy malt and molasses. Not bad.
