nearbeer (5078) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft from Casual Pint. Opaque black with a lasting quarter inch of spongy foam. Nose is dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee with sour cream. Flavor is dark chocolate, graham cracker, ash, chicory, lightly tart berries and cream. Medium body is smooth, but tingly with acidity and a medium carbonation. Nearly a sweet stout, but mostly well-balanced, tasty, and an easy drinker.

From a 12 oz bottle/ Pours near black with a big tan head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing. Nose of chocolate malts. Medium body and a lactose mouth feel. Flavor is mostly roast chocolate malts. Finishes sweet. Pretty good.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Deep dark brown body. Aromas of malt, coffee and chocolate. Nice flavor of malt, coffee and chocolate as well. The finish was a little lighter than most, but still had a decent creaminess.

kidmartinek (4877) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Black gold. Quickly diminishing khaki head. Dark roasted malt aroma. Heavy carbonation which comes through fizzy on the palate. The beer has a long taste and almost tastes like smoked malt was used. Reminds me of urban camping. A bit thin in the body for a stout. Almost lagerish. Roasted malt aftertaste. Im not tasting the potatoes or anything else mentioned in the.description except for the southernness.

ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011
16 ounce pint - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

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 doesnt like coffee all that much. A bit of chocolate, vanilla. The nose isnt unpleasant, but it isnt 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 Bells Kalamazoo for the next round.

DialSquare (4618) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and nuts. Tart stachy quality. Chocolate, dark fruit, candy sugar. Strange one. Think I kind of like it.

chinchill (4515) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2014
(from 2012 notes) Growler fill from the first pour out of a new keg at Moondog Growlers. Poured about 1 hour later into a Porter Bar goblet. Pours a dark reddish-brown, and sits almost black in the glass. A modest but creamy tan head fades fast and leaves little lacing. Aroma: dark roasted chocolate malt, sweet with perhaps some sweet potato; faint earthy hop notes. T: A sweet and creamy flavor, with hints of milf chocolate and coffee. Blemished by a faint sour note that, to be fair, is characteristic of milk stouts. The taste actually deteriorates a little with warming, becoming more sour and less malty, unusual for a stout. M: Creamy smooth; full bodied; acceptable low carbonation. O: Another (with pecan beer) disappointing offering from this brewer, but better than the pecan ale and certainly a decent brew.

kerenmk (4504) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 15, 2014
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. Bodys a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.

DiarmaidBHK (4429) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft at Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours black with a thin khaki head that doesnt 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 Im not dying for another.
