Bouteille achete chez Intercaves. Belle surprise que cette bire la patate douce. Une belle rondeur agrmente de notes de vin cuits. On soriente vers du vieux vin trs liquoreux. A dcouvrir !

I really liked this despite the average low rating. Hints of sweet potato and herbs with an earthy essence. Nice color and medium weight. Easy to drink.

The_Osprey (7631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
December 2016 - Bottle share at Leightons. As Coedo Beniaka Imperial Sweet Potato Premium Amber Lager - Super Premium Japanese Craft Beer, 7%, brewed by Kyodo Shoji. Very dark orange, slight red hue, translucent, foamy off-white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is airy, sugary, light berry. Body is light, tingly carbonation, frothy. Taste is earthy, boiled sweets, not getting sweet potato really but its quite sweet, some toffee, dry finish. Interesting to try. (3.0)

Scipio (946) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours a clear, dark amber with a thin off white head. The aroma is a bit sweet. Its dominated by floral hops and complimented by raisin and mild caramel and nuts. The taste remains sweet with a slight bitterness. Heavy brown sugar and caramel, light floral and herbal hops, and hints of earthy malts. I do get the sweet potato in here. The aftertaste is rather weak, but it does stick with you, and it consists of brown sugar. This one is light in body, has a thin texture, and is average in carbonation. Decent I suppose, though I wouldnt go out of my way to find this.

This was okay. Didnt really notice the sweet potato in any meaningful way. Like a mix of a brown and an amber.

Scopey (13797) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle shared to Danny. It pours clear deep red - brown with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet, rich, sticky, sweet potato casserole, toffee, honeycomb and dried fruits. The taste is dry, bitter, rivita, varnish, dried fruits, brown sugar, sweet potato, toffee, alcohol hit, chewy and sticky action with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A touch sweet perhaps. Not bad.
