Draft at Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours black with a thin khaki head that doesn’t leave any lacing. Not much on the nose. Some dark chocolate and raisin on the tongue. A bit of tartness and lactose on the finish. Solid but I’m not dying for another. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011

Appearance: Very dark brown, nearing black in color with a scant, tan-hued head up on top.
Smell: Lightly roasty scent, hinting at a cup of weak coffee brewed for someone on a strict coffee budget or someone who really doesn’t like coffee all that much. A bit of chocolate, vanilla. The nose isn’t unpleasant, but it isn’t one to reach out and grab you.
Taste: A sweetish taste of dark maltiness, though not overtly flavorful following the example of the aroma, offering up only mild flavors of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness reminiscent of sweet grape. Very subtle bitterness. Semi-dry, malty, lightly minerally finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A pedestrian brew, lacking presence. It left my hankering for something better, so I opted for a Bell’s Kalamazoo for the next round.
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. SinH4 (4794) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2017
Bottle. Black color with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, lacto, and really some sweet potato. Taste is sweet potato, lacto, chocolate. A bit mineralic finish. Medium carbonation. Interesting!

Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Body’s a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation. jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pours a translucent brownish black on tap with dissipating tan head. Aroma is lactose with a lot of roast behind it. Taste is smoke and roasted malt, no real creaminess or lactose. Meh. Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2014
BTBF. Dark brown color. Sweet chocolate aroma, milky, grains, more chocolate. Flavor is dry, lightly sweet, bitter and dark roast. A tad bit rough. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2013
A bit more bland than I would’ve thought and I’m 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. jsquire (4489) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Dark beer out of the bottle. There is very little carbonation in this bottle. I got some brown bubbles when I poured but no head and not much action on the tongue. Molasses, burnt grain and buttered toast in the nose. Lots of lactic sweetness with burnt chocolate, toast, sweetened coffee and some grassy hops in the finish. Okay novelty stout.
