3.69/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed out of a 12 oz brown bottle with a hard-to-read bottling date of 06-02-13. Poured into a 16 oz tumbler.

Appearance - Aggressive pour yields a frothy cocoa-colored foam with a mottling of medium sized bubbles amidst effervescent microbubbles. Dissipates over the course of five minutes to a half finger layer of foam. Leaves lacing that creeps back down into the liquid. Body is pitch black, no discernible light getting through, even around the edges.

Smell - The sweet potato is more present than I expected. Aroma is predominantly roasty and bittersweet chocolate, there is a noticeable characteristic of yam and brown sugar. Finishes with some element of coffee beans.

Taste - Again, the sweet potato is present, accompanied by some burnt sugar sweetness and a finish with a hint of dry that appears to come from notes of tree bark and cocoa nibs.

Mouthfeel - A little slimy for my taste, and there is a strange lightness to the body that doesn't sit quite right with the heartier notes I get from smell and taste. Carbonation is light.

Overall, a solid attempt, and different than any other milk stout I've had. Successful when it comes to infusing that sweet potato characteristic without overpowering. But the feel of this one impacts negatively in a way that influences the smell and taste.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25

A- deep deep garnet with a cola rim, thick khaki head. Well defined rings of lacing. The head fades quickly to a thin layer, but it never goes away completely.

S- cocoa, and sweet potato.

T- starts off with smoky cocoa and a light hint of coffee, but the finish is all about the sweet potato. It comes across caramelized, but not too sweet. There's some citrus from the hops as well.

M- lighter than I thought it would be. Irish dry stout light. Almost watery finish.

O- I just wish it had a fuller body...

This was surprisingly smooth. It was very easy to drink and had a lighter body than some of the other milk stouts on the market. As it sits, the taste changes from heavier chocolate tone to a lighter one; and the sweet potato undertone makes its appearance. Would definitely buy this one again!
