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.

Bottle. Sweet smell. Pours a dark chocolate brown with tan head. Tastes of spices, sweet cream, bitter cocoa, and a little coffee. Lingering coffee bitterness. Very thin. I was expecting more.

Emeister84 (1038) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
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.

BREWMUSKCLES (2260) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2014
nice potato soup thickness and a caramel and sweetish milky body with light flavor of dark cocoa that is slightly burnt. a bit of pecan in the sweetness and perhaps a bit of vanilla.

bpatrick01 (6) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
Toasted malt aroma with a khaki diminishing head. Initial toasted chocolate taste finishing with a sour yeast above average lasting finishing. I do not tend to like stouts but this one I could drink.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear dark ruby-brown with a large fizzy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of mild roast, lactose, spice. The taste is roast, potatoes, earth, lactose, tart finish. Thin-medium bodied, decent balance.

Prufrockstar (1017) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2014
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!

OldMrCrow (1869) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle shared with Chris -- thanks. Mississippi tick, oh yeah! Pours dark (obviously) with a tan head. Gently sweet, roast and ash, mild sourness, definitely lactic, sweet potatoes all up in your face (though I wouldn’t even know it except for the recent SN beer camp 12-pack experience). A bit thin but otherwise unobjectionable.

I was pleasantly surprised by this. I had major doubts about beer with sweet potatoes, but the flavor was very good, clearly a sweet stout. Palate was a little thin when compared to other stouts, but very good for being in a southern state. Very impressed.

Pours black with low light tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, light vanilla, light roasted malt. Taste is light chocolate bitter. Light body with soft to average carbonation.
