UPDATED: MAY 24, 2010 Draft pint from Cooter Brown’s. Pours a very dark brown with a tiny tan head. The aroma isn’t particularly strong, but has notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and coffee. The flavor is much stronger than the aroma leads you to believe, and is smoky, roast coffee, malts, and burnt toast. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with medium-to-heavy body. Roasty, smoky finish and burnt toast aftertaste. Re-rate: May 21, 2010. I think this must have been too warm at Cooter Brown’s when I had it in September, because the sweet potato notes really came through this time. Bartender warned me and a few buddies that it would be an 8-minute pour and she was right. Beautiful dark opaque brown with a cascading brown head. The roasty and smoky notes I remembered mellowed out and were replaced with sweet potato, cream, toasted brown sugar, and just lightly roasted malts. So smooth and sweet, with some dark fruits coming through later and the creaminess growing. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Very nice beer.
