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.

Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Body’s a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.

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.

Pours a translucent brownish black on tap with dissipating tan head. Aroma is lactose with a lot of roast behind it. Taste is smoke and roasted malt, no real creaminess or lactose. Meh.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malt, licorice, coffee. Little sweet at first, then turns bitter. I’m not picking up the potatoes, but I like this one.

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.
