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.

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.

Bottle, possibly from Gatlinburg. Dark stout pour with a light brown head that dissipates quickly. Sweet coffee aroma. Flavor is a touch thin but leads with some coffee. Okay.

Nice dark color. This beer has a nice balance of flavor but it’s a little thin. Easy drinking.

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.

Wow, Lazy Mag isn’t nailing appearance. In fact, this one wasn’t a "stout" (flavor or mouthfeel) at all in my book. Nevertheless, this was tasty, a nice coffee porter, imo. Pour was brown, nothing close to black, and the head was small (even in a full sized pour) with weak lacing. The aroma was mostly of coffee. The flavor was also mostly of coffee with a mouthfeel that was somewhat thin, especially for a stout. Yet, this was also quite drinkable, one I’d recommend trying if you don’t expect the average "stout."

Via trade with Crajun. Lovely aroma of chocolate, cream, sweet potato, vanilla, light roast. The appearance is jet black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate, vegetable, roasty. Not as sweet as the aroma. Not quite as tick in body as it should be, actually middle of the road. The finish is roasty, light resin, vegetable. Good overall, some qualities better than others.
