look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Nice aromas of roasted malt and some lactose, imparting notes of coffee with cream, freshly baked dark bread and notes of vanilla and dark molasses.

Taste: Pretty, good. Roasted malt and coffee up front, followed by some freshly baked dark bread, brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness, vanilla and slight touch of licorice. Not much in the way of hops or really any sweet potatoes or vegetables or fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. Some decent carbonation, much more than usually expect in a cream stout, but not enough to tickle the taste buds or anything. With an ABV of 4.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good milk stout, possessing nice malt, coffee and cream flavors, balanced nicely with some sweetness, but I didn’t get any sweet potato flavors or complementary spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, as you get in say a pumpkin beer or in sweet potato dishes, so in that area, this beer is a little bit of a disappointment. I’m glad I tried it, but I probably won’t get it again.

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.

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.

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.
