3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I finally got to try this, itís 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 Iíve 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.
Canít wait until this is available in bottles.

Odd very thing and watery stout. Pours a brownish translucence and the flavor follows suit. Tastes watered down with no differentiating elements of sweet potato.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip. Very dark, nearly black pour and mostly opaque. Off-white tan head of two fingers. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Taste was rather simple with coffee bitterness, chocolate notes, little dark fruit and a very dry finish. I was expecting a little bit more out of it. Mouth was also pretty carbonated compared to other stouts.

A bit more bland than I wouldíve thought and Iím not sure what the sweet potato added to this. Nice mouthfeel, though, very creamy. Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.

on draft at husk brewing, just an ashy thin weak stout, not sweet really at all, very plain and cheap tasting.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. No lacing.. Roasted malt aroma. Fairly thin and astringent, but the flavors are nice - caramel and raisin notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Sweet but surprisingly dry finish. Typical lightly roasted malts with a bit of vanilla coffee. Slight lactic bite. nothing special.
