Appearance: dark brown, with a short-lived creamy tan head and no lacing. Aroma: beautiful smell of dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and milk chocolate, over a light earthy, toffee, leather note. Taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, vanilla, brulee’d sugar, with an earthy candied yam undertone. Finish: lingering bittersweet chocolate and vanilla cream, and again the earthy sweet potato note sticks around. Notes: Creamy palate, sweet but semi-dry flavors. Sweet potato adds a really nice note, and some other flavors (caramelized sugar, vanilla, etc) remind me of a Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole. Really quite enjoyable.

Pours black with a thick brown head.
Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma.
Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee.
Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness.
Pretty tasty. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Lactic chocolate malt, ash and sweet potato aroma. Black with moderate long lasting tan head. Sweet cocoa malt and roasted sweet potato flavor. Lightly bitter ash finish. Light body. Not bad - would have liked more body. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, 1" creamy brown head, a few light strings of lace. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is thin, watery malt that grows much bigger in the palate, maybe adding some sweet potato in a somewhat burnt finish. Overall, it has a moment of big stout flavor, but mostly it doesn’t live up to the name. cmiller54hr (48) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 1, 2014
12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours coal black w very minimal head. Can taste the sweet potato. Not as much of a coffee taste as most other stouts. A good beer I’d drink again but didn’t blow my socks off

Not as much sweet potato flavor as I had hoped for! I know this is the leading brewery in Mississippi and I love the name of their beers....just wish the taste matched! alexsdad06 (10818) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from a BA trade from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, lactose creaminess, the sweet potatoes are faint but with warming became more noticeable, caramel, interesting combination of flavors, body is on the thin side. thegreenrooster (4562) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pour is a black with a very small tan head. Aroma is a decent roast malt with some bitter chocolate. Flavor is a nice char malt with some sweetness and caramel. I did not get an sweet potato but that’s alright it’s not my favorite thing. Decent stout though. This beer from this brewer I thought I would like the least I actually liked this best. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle; dark brown color with a light brown head. Aroma of lactose, veggies, cocoa and caramel. Mineral finish, before surprising caramel note. Some veggie, char and caramel. Some sweetness. rader58 (926) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 14, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours dark black. Aroma of brown sugar, coffee, cocoa. Flavor of coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, hint of the sweet potato. Not bad.
