From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. No lacing.. Roasted malt aroma. Fairly thin and astringent, but the flavors are nice - caramel and raisin notes.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, roasted nuts, light coffee, and a hint of dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger light brown head that quickly fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and caramel. There is some moderate sour fruits in the middle. The finish has light-moderate coffee, light roasted nuts, and dusty flavors. Its medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the sourness is clearly not supposed to be here and really hurts my rating.

Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Big and rich character, and I dont mean the country band. Sweet and quite creamy. Not a trace of any sweet potato, but after seeing the canned yams at the brewery in Kiln, I had to give this try. Id guess they add the thick body, maybe some of the sweetness. Otherwise, youd just find this as a nice milky, creamy sweet stout. (#4052, 12/18/2010)

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Pours dark brown with a nice, light brown head. Smells of roasted malt, some molasses, spicy. Tastes roasty and chocolatey with a nice, full bodied finish.

Patrickctenchi (6314) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle: 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.

kramer (6293) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a pitch black body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is roasty and sweet with some coffee notes and lactose. The flavor is not overly sweet, just the right balance between the lactose and the roasted malt. Cant say I would ever even think there was sweet potato in here, but it is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clinginess on the finish from the lactose, light fizzy carbonation. Think I might like to try this on nitro maybe. Pretty nice all in all. One of the better Lazy Mag beers.

Suttree (6191) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewers Jam. Black. Smokey, sweet aroma. Flavor is coffee and stout, plus some odd background notes. I see that that it is brewed with sweet potatoes. When I sampled it, I got some odd flavors and smells, but I didnt immediately think sweet potato. But it works, I guess.
