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!

Tasted On: 03-25-2014
Freshness: Best by 03-28-2014
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Mug
Purchased: Single from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville

Appearance has a black and opaque beer topped with a modest off-white head. The head fades fast and leaves no lacing behind.

Aromas are light, with milk chocolate, malts, and some fruit/vegetable notes that may be from the sweet potato?

Taste has flavors of roasted malts and coffee, but the bitterness is not high nor is it astringent. Other tastes include semi-sweet chocolate and a hint of vanilla.

The mouthfeel is creamy and I get a moderate amount of carbonation. Toasted grains, light coffee, and a touch of sweetness make for a pleasing finish.

Overall, this beer is an enjoyable stout with some areas for improvement in the appearance and aromas.
