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 (6898) - 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 (3276) - 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 (4229) - 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).

Big thanks to jzzbassman for this one! Pours a cola brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, and most definitely some potato starch. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, roasted coffee, fruity sweetness, and nice level of sweet potato. Interesting and pretty nice! jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Tap. Oh, how good this beer could be with a slightly bigger malt bill to make this a thicker body; blame the stupid Mississippi beer laws for that one.. Flavor is really nice, malt and chocolate balanced with a nice hop level to keep it from being sweet, with the sweet potato smoothing out the edges. kramer (6975) - 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. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Draft at Pizza Joint Evans. Jet black pour with a thin tan head. Scent is roasty, licorice and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee and hops. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Very dark brown pour, brown head. Raisins, prunes, pumpernickel bread, chocolate, coffee and roast in the nose. Flavor leads with dark fruit, lactose sugar, prunes, roasted malt, chocolate. Pretty good stuff.
