I finally got to try this, it’s been on my wishlist for some time. I took my wife shopping, she took me to the mellow mushroom in flowood. Unfortunately, they have the habit of serving every beer icecold so I had to try to wait a bit to sample it. It was hard to get much aroma from it - definite maltiness and hint of sweet potato (could have been my imagination).
Medium, dark complexion without much head (I have a feeling they poured it off, as I’ve seen them do that before). Nice mouthfeel. Definitely has a coffee/malt complexion. Very solid beer and easy to drink. Got better as it warmed.
Can’t wait until this is available in bottles.

This is the opposite of a Duplass brothers movie. They undersell and hope people are impressed. The name here promises a lot, but doesn’t deliver much.

Pours brown with a tan head. The aroma has smooth roast, lactose, mild squash and smooth veggie notes that kinda work. It has a medium body with very soft carbonation. The flavor starts with roast, chocolate, sweet potatoes and some milk. The finish is dry and a bit chalky.

Smells kinda like milk. Smooth and creamy. Nice sweetness. Hard to pick up sweet potatoes. Slight chocolate at the end.

Bottle. Smelled and looked great. Unfortunately the sweet potato was barely there, and overall the taste was quite average.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy dark brown head that faded and left minimal lacing. The flavor was roasty, licorice, floral and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, roasty and malty with a hint of anise and moderate floral hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.
