3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro. Hazy light amber body, large creamy white head, soapy lacing. Nose shows bready sweetness, caramel, and a bit of earthy sweet potato. Flavor is similar with a general muddled bread/potato sweetness dominating. Medium bodied, creamy carbonation, moderately lingering finish. Its tough to make a potato beer drinkable beyond the first few sips. This one is decent, but it still isnít something Iíd want again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a tulip pint. Nitro-tap.
Hazy amber with 1 finger of creamy head. Low carbonation.
Caramel, bread, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Bread, caramel and brown sugar. The sweet potatoes take on a flavor similar to pumpkin but is, obviously, sweeter. Light spices of cinnamon and nutmeg round out the finish.
Light-medium bodied, uber-creamy and incredibly smooth. The
nitro pour does this justice.
Whatever category you want to throw this in, itís a damn good Autumn beer (Or anytime for that matter). Incredibly balanced, easy drinking and delicious! I will be back for more, Vault.
