This one got better as I drank more...

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.

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

A: Dark chestnut to black. Medium tan head. Short lasting, no lacing.

S: A subtle sweet potato is hard to get at. Covered up by stronger and not as subtle scents of cocoa powder, cinnamon, marshmallow, brown sugar.

M: Medium bodied, but not too sweet. Low-mod carbonation. Has a residing astringency like bitter coffee grounds. Creaminess is not noteworthy, on par to slightly below for style.

T: This beer ends up tasting like the burnt skin of a sweet potato. I can get where they were going, wanting to use the starch of a sweet potato and the flavors that dress said sweet potato (marshmallow and whipped cream sweetness, brown sugar molasses, earthy sweetness, cinnamon) to compliment the naturally acrid espresso flavors in a stout. Ends up tasting like burnt coffee with a touch of cinnamon on top. Smoky, roasted nut flavor. It gets better as it warms, and I definitely get some marshmallow sweetness, which is very nice on the palate; however, overall it's more bitter than sweet, and misses it's niche. Nice, but no need to revisit.
