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.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Very dark and opaque. Aroma is roasty with malt. Interesting and pretty good. Sweet but not overly so, definite roastiness and some flavor of sweet potato. Also notice a slight metallic aftertaste

Had a bottle with a bowl of soup at five loaves in charleston. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and earth. Mouthfeel is medium but enough for a lunchtime brew. Balance is nice between sweetness of lactose and sweet potato (maybe too subtle) and bitterness of coffee and chocolate. Not much in the way of hops but not bad for a state I don’t think of as a brewing powerhouse.

drfabulous (6030) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle best by 5/14 on the bottle. Black with tan head. Creamy with a bit of milk stout taste to it. Not sure what sweet potatoes do. Taste is porter/light stout.

Draft at Felix’s Oyster House in NOLA. Pour is murky brown with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, cotton candy. Big hit of that sweet/sour sweet potato on the first sip. Very intriguing. Has almost a cloying effect but it was not unpleasant. The creaminess here intrigued everyone at the table. I see the low ratings but have to say this one did it for me. I’m a fan.

Bottle: Pours black with a thick brown head. Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee. Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness. Pretty tasty.

Aromas of sweet potato, vanilla, milk chocolate. Almost black but with a ruby tinge, moderately lasting tan head. Initial malt sweetness, roasty, coffee notes, a little sharp on the finish. Medium-full bodied.
