My Bottom Line:arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Vanilla and milk chocolate benefit from roasted edges and earthy potato depths for a nourishing dessert brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the brown-edged black.
-A fruity touch gives the flavour profile a little more complexity.
-The high sweetness and soft prickling of carbonation don’t help drinkability.
-When in the mood for dessert, this is a quality sweet Stout.
-The finish lacks bitterness or spiciness to balance out the sweetness.
Pour out of 12 bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, hints of slight lactose into some slight acidic malt, hints of a earthy note in there as well. Taste is a mix of sweet sugary notes, slight lactose into some earth, hints of roast, coffee, slight chocolate, finishing slightly acidic, dry. blipp (9295) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malty aroma, with coffee and sweet malts. The flavor has hard roasted malts, coffee, and a light nutty sweetness. Pretty good. douglas88 (9193) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium light brown head. A sweet nose of roast and lactose. The flavor is well done with light sweet roast, milky, some dark fruit, dusty dry potatoes, minerals. Really a lot of coal and minerals. Nice brew! Enjoyable.

Coffee roast aroma. Dark coloured rich and smooth on the palate. Hoppy with a little dryness and bitterness in a crisp coffee roast finish. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Light roast here and the potato makes for a good infusion here. Pretty easy to drink. Light bittersweet finish. Bottle. drowland (8760) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2014
4/11/14. 12oz bottle thanks to rdixon77! Black pour with a nice tan head. Crazy aroma... Definitely hits the sweet potato mark, much more than I expected. Sweet potatoes, some caramel and chocolate, malty. Reminds me of a biscuity barleywine or something. Another surprising dose of sweet potato in the flavor, I can’t believe how present they are, with some chocolate, vanilla, and cream. Interesting. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2010
On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with brown edges and thin mocha head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with a molasses sweetness mixed in as well as a chocolaty earthiness. The taste is smooth and sweet with highly roasted malts mixing with sweet notes of molasses along with an earthy note I can’t put my finger on. It dries out a bit into the finish and after taste with dark roasted malts. Hansen (8594) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2015
Dark brown coloured and clear. Has a light brown head. Heavy cocoa-aroma, sweet sugars too.
