Draft @ Avenue Pub. Aroma is straightforward Irish stout, nice coal and asphalt mellow roast and if I search I can find caramelized sweet potato. Ok not really. There is no discernible sweet potato character but the beer has solid body is well constructed. Very dry. Nice stout.

Bottle (special tasting bottle -- not normally bottled). Nose is rich and smoky with coffee, chocolate, and orange notes. Pours an opaque brown-black with a light head. Not very sweet, with a round, glycerine mouthfeel and impressive notes of espresso; I can taste the sweet potatoes, and I like sweet potatoes, so bonus points there. One of the better examples of the style I’ve had.

Near black brew with some tan head. Aromas of yams, smoke, chocolate, and fresh coffee. Flavor is sweet - the sweet potatoes add some interesting spices. Would be amazing if it was a bit less sweet.

Bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium light brown head. A sweet nose of roast and lactose. The flavor is well done with light sweet roast, milky, some dark fruit, dusty dry potatoes, minerals. Really a lot of coal and minerals. Nice brew! Enjoyable.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and nuts. Tart stachy quality. Chocolate, dark fruit, candy sugar. Strange one. Think I kind of like it.

My first ever sweet potato stout, and it is pretty good. Aroma has coffee and dark cocoa on it. Decently sweet on the finish, but mainly roasted cocoa, a little coffee and toffee.

On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with brown edges and thin mocha head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with a molasses sweetness mixed in as well as a chocolaty earthiness. The taste is smooth and sweet with highly roasted malts mixing with sweet notes of molasses along with an earthy note I can’t put my finger on. It dries out a bit into the finish and after taste with dark roasted malts.

Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Big and rich character, and I don’t mean the country band. Sweet and quite creamy. Not a trace of any sweet potato, but after seeing the canned yams at the brewery in Kiln, I had to give this try. I’d guess they add the thick body, maybe some of the sweetness. Otherwise, you’d just find this as a nice milky, creamy sweet stout. (#4052, 12/18/2010)

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 On tap at Luna’s in lake charles, LA. Dark brown with a slight beige head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, smoke, and a bit of sweetness from the lactose/sweet potato. Tastes roasted and slightly sweet, with a mild coffee bitterness. Medium bodied, a little creamy, and moderately carbonated. Decent stuff.
