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.

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.

Draft at Barley’s in Knoxville. Pours orange-edged black with small khaki head. The aroma is roasty and coffee-ish with some dark chocolate, a somewhat sweet oat note, and some distant creosote. The flavor is weak coffee, peanut shells, slight saltiness, and a husky finish.

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.

The nose is pretty undefined - a bit of roast but not much else. Flavor again is pretty restrained - a bit of roast, some bitterness.

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.
