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, it’s creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good sweet stout, but I don’t think "sweet potatoes" when drinking it, because I didn’t 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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Black. Smokey, sweet aroma. Flavor is coffee and stout, plus some odd background notes. I see that that it is brewed with sweet potatoes. When I sampled it, I got some odd flavors and smells, but I didn’t immediately think sweet potato. But it works, I guess.
