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. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
My first ever sweet potato stout, and it is pretty good. Aroma has coffee and dark cocoa on it. Decently sweet on the finish, but mainly roasted cocoa, a little coffee and toffee. HuskerTan (2202) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAY 1, 2016
A- Chocolate syrup, milk, subtle coffee, roasty.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Chocolate syrup, milky, sweet, slightly roasty, slightly dry, subtle coffee bitterness.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- Wanted this mostly for the novelty of being brewed with sweet potatoes. Can’t say that I really got much sweet potato. It definitely added to the sweetness but didn’t have a pronounced flavor. It was good though. I expected it to be a weird novelty beer and in turn it was actually very tasty. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Might be a Winter seasonal, but it held up, in my opinion, besides I’m too excited to get my 49th state of the USA in for a beer, no way, am I about to let this beer review slip away.
This was poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy cap of a head. No lacing.
The aroma starts off with some roasty coffee bean, marshmallow, then toffee, creamy espresso sweetness comes in nicely to round out. Light cocoa bean plays in the background.
The flavor returns the roasty coffee bean to blend nicely into the sweet marshmallow and toffee. Dry sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice semi-sessionable feel to it. Dry roastiness seems to hit decently.
Overall, good milk/sweet stout I could have again. Just glad to knock off a Mississippi beer finally. Only one more state to have a beer from all 50. zoucrew102 (1879) - - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with notes of caramel, coffee, milk sugar, chocolate and some sweet potato. Pours dark brown with a large caramel head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavors with notes of chocolate, caramel and coffee. Finishes extremely smooth with milk sugar sweetness and some sweet potato flavor that ends very clean on the palate. Pretty nice stout.

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. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Big and rich character, and I don’t 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. I’d guess they add the thick body, maybe some of the sweetness. Otherwise, you’d just find this as a nice milky, creamy sweet stout. (#4052, 12/18/2010) rougeau13 (3014) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2011
UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 On tap at Luna’s in lake charles, LA. Dark brown with a slight beige head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, smoke, and a bit of sweetness from the lactose/sweet potato. Tastes roasted and slightly sweet, with a mild coffee bitterness. Medium bodied, a little creamy, and moderately carbonated. Decent stuff. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Draft. Awesome palate; super smoky and chocolatey. Dry and tart finish. Very good. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer, Nashville. Pours black with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor is quite bitter- lots of roasted bitterness and mild bitter chocolate. Some saltiness like a potato skin. Robust palate. Pretty good stout, actually, although it wasn’t what I expected (I was expecting something sweeter given the name).
