On tap at Bell's for All Stouts Day.
A- Pours a dark brown almost black in color. 1 1/2 finger tannish head dies down a little after a short period. Lacing is light and clinging to the sides of the glass then slides down back into the beer.
S- This is a very mild smelling stout. Sweet potato is in the nose but in the background until it warms up where it comes around a little more. Nice light roasted malts in the forefront of this beer. Almost a light chocolate note to it.
T- Roasted malts come through in the front of this beer. Sweet potato comes in faintly at first but like the aroma whn it warms up there is a little more presence in the beer. I get a mellow semi-sweetness to this beer in the background of this as well.
M- This is a medium-heavy mouthfeel. The carbonation is good for the stout style. A light sweet toasted malt taste in the palate. Nice light malt aftertaste. Clean tasting.
D- This is a very drinkable stout. Easy on the palate and on the stomach as well. I had a couple of these while there today. This is a fantastic stout that I think most people would enjoy. If you like sweet potatoes then you will like the notes of it in this stout.

From tap to small nonic. Pours a very dark brown, nearly black, hazy, with a tan head. The head has decent retention and leaves some durable, sticky lacing.
Smell: lightly roasted sweet malts with sweet potato - not dramatic but a well-tempered, natural addition not enhanced by spices.
Taste: similar to the smell. Moderately sweet up front but not overly so, and more balanced by the finish. Light chocolate and dark fruit notes appear towards the finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium-plus body with rather lively carbonation. Some dryness in the finish.
Overall: You may already be inclined to try this sweet stout out of curiosity, but this is a pleasing and interesting beer that is worth seeking out as a high quality stout.
