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 (6682) - 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. Can’t 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. vyvvy (6639) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours brown with a tan head. The aroma has smooth roast, lactose, mild squash and smooth veggie notes that kinda work. It has a medium body with very soft carbonation. The flavor starts with roast, chocolate, sweet potatoes and some milk. The finish is dry and a bit chalky. luttonm (6634) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2015

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. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the sourness is clearly not supposed to be here and really hurts my rating.
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewer’s 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 didn’t immediately think sweet potato. But it works, I guess. jgb9348 (6434) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of lactose, cream, alcohol, roasted malt and a bit of coffee - decent, but not too strong. Light-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with a nice sweet potato and lactose flavour showing the sugary side, but the earthy, ashy flavours are also noticeable without much malt support. Aftertaste shows some smokey notes with a bit of peat and grain with a touch of sugars, some mild alcohol notes and a hint of bitterness from the coffee. Overall, not such a great beer, but worth trying if you like the style. I sapled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by a teammate and sampled after a hockey game on 23-March-2014 in Ballston (Arlington), Virginia. dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2015
12oz bottle via trade. Poured a medium density dark black with a smaller fizzy brown head. Aroma has an odd earthy sweetness that fades into a sugary bad chocolate. Body seems a little flat, softer carbonation and a milky watery mouthfeel. Flavor is the same as the aroma.
