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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured black with a moderate head. Malted tones, some roast, and a hint of sweet potato on the nose. It was nice. Nothing too crazy or special about this one. But a nice drinking beer none the less. Some hints of light cocoa and lactose. Sort of reminded me of that dish with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Some roast and toasted sugars/malts. Certainly a stout worth trying.

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. Bodyís a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.

c/o GreatDane1632 - Thank you Dane! 1st MS beer.
Aroma - this is the only place where the sweet potato showed up for me. Itís the yam/sweet potato candied thing going on, but you have to hone in on it. You can tell itís going to be sweet in taste, there is also nice roast quality to it. There is also a little coffee tucked in there as well.
Appearance - body is black; liquid is opaque; the head is light brown/tan starts about 1/2" and it eventually settles into a thin slice
Taste - is primarily sweet, there is a bit of roast, some chocolate, and a bit of roast.
Palate - body is full; the texture is creamy; the carbonation is average; the finish is a nice mild roast, very silky smooth and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle labeled as Jeff Stout, bottled on date of 02/10/14. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, it smells like roasted malt, chocolate, nuts, and some vanilla. It tastes like milk chocolate, nuts, vanilla, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, and cream. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy with moderate carbonation. I think itís a good sweet stout, but I donít think "sweet potatoes" when drinking it, because I didnít notice any. Certainly worth a try.

12 oz bottle from a BA trade from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, lactose creaminess, the sweet potatoes are faint but with warming became more noticeable, caramel, interesting combination of flavors, body is on the thin side.

Bottle thanks to Suttree. Pours opaque brown with ring of khaki head. Aroma: milky; chocolate; sweet potato pie, baking spice and all. Taste: chocolate, some spice, moderately sweet; sweet potato really comes through surprisingly. Again, like pie. Light bitterness in the finish. Medium body, creamy texture. Overall: I came looking for a random state tick, I left with a surprisingly tasty beer. Nice!
