4.19/5  rDev +24.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The color of espresso beans underneath a mocha colored head. The head tecedes leaving only a mocha collar, and light yet soapy spots of lacing remain.

Aroma: Loads of sugary lactose on top of some roasted grains and faint chocolate notes.

Taste: Not much in the way of sweet potatoes, but a really good milky and lactose sugar body. Perhaps a faint, earthy potato note comes in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, silky.

Overall: This is a really sweet and smooth cream stout. I think the sweet potatoes emerge as the beer warms.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, roasted malts, some sweet potato. Taste is much milder than the smell. Some smoke, light sweetness, a bitter at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

3.6/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: extremely dark hue with a thick head of creamy tan foam. Quite attractive.

Smell: nice roasty aroma with hints of coffee and a definite milk-stout sweetness. I fancy I can smell a hint of sweet potato as well. It is quite nice.

Taste: lightly roasty with a moderate sweetness. There's not as much character in the flavor as in the aroma. It's not bad at all, it's just that the volume on the flavor is turned way down.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a smooth creaminess appropriate to the style. Not bad.

Overall: this beer is definitely quite drinkable, but a little more strength of flavor would be great.

3.05/5  rDev -9.5%

12oz bottle, bottled 07/14/14. Served in a Libby globe stout/porter glass.

Appearance: Black on the table. When held up to the light, there is a dark cola/ruby red color. Thin tan ring of foam which slowly died away. No lacing.

Smell: Roasted malt, a bit metallic. With a swirl there is a hint of something else sweet and a bit of sweet potato.

Taste: Some sweet and chocolate notes up front, along with some roasted malt. The finish has some roasted/overcooked sweet potato to it. It’s not ashy/burnt, but it’s definitely overdone sweet potato that is bringing the bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel: Fizzy. Not very stout like at all.

Overall / Drinkability: Overall a so-so beer. It’s more like a stout soda than a beer. There is a good roasted malt profile, but the rest of the beer misses the mark in many ways. I tried to let the beer warm all the way up in the hopes it would take on more flavors and lose the fizziness. No luck. I wouldn’t recommend this beer – there are far better stouts out there.
