12 ounce bottle, bottled on date of 02/10/14. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, it smells like roasted malt, chocolate, nuts, and some vanilla. It tastes like milk chocolate, nuts, vanilla, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, and cream. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good sweet stout, but I don't think "sweet potatoes" when drinking it, because I didn't notice any. Certainly worth a try.

12oz brown bottle with a pry off cap poured in a dimpled mug. Purchased in New Orleans on a recent trip.
Black and opaque. Lets practically no light through at all. Brown head is 1/8 inch on the pour but quickly disappears leaving a little ring around the edge, but almost nothing. No lacing to speak of.
Aroma is very faint, difficult to pick anything out. What little scent I can discern is coffee, burnt malts and bitter dark chocolate.
Flavour is fairly muted as well. Dark coffee, chocolate, dark malts, hints of caramel. Also has a faint tinny character during the carbonation rush in the middle.
Full bodied. Strangely has lots of aggressive pin pricks of carbonation which seems excessive, even though there's no head.
This is ok, but nothing special. I thought the sweet potato would give it more character and complexity, but I really can't tell it's even in there.

A-dark brown color that appears to be clear, when the light gets though, with a brown head that faded quick, and leaves a slight lace
S-roasted, sweet caramel malt and nutty aroma
T- roasted caramel malt taste that is sweet at first then you get a roasted caramel malt and hop bitterness in the aftertaste that last til the end
M-full body and low carbonation
O-I could see myself drinking this on a hot summer day.

Purchased in Laurel Ms.
Pours a very dark black with a frothy, foamy head.
Aroma has strong burnt odors. Burnt malts, burnt chocolates along with some raisins.
Taste, has a lot of the raisin, some molasses. I get a sour after taste.
Body which looks like it would be thick is actually pretty thin.
Didn't care for this one at all.

Pours to a thin, tan head that dies. Opaque mahogany color. Aroma is cafe mocha and half-and-half with some roasted nuts and vanilla. Flavor is coffee, nuts, roasted malt and milk sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and co2 is pleasantly low. Overall a solid quaff.
