Thanks, I guess, to rudzud for sharing this growler.

Big frothy creamy head fades slowly with great lacing, reddish burnt orange hazy beer.

Nose is very weird, sweet sugar, tangy almost sour fruity sugar, with very light sweet potato note, little earthiness, lots of sugar and fermented sugar mess.

Taste is better, sweet candy, marshmallow fluffy sugar, some earthy sweet potato, a bit of a tart raisiny fruit thing like glog almost, little phenolic booze note, candied sweet potato, little gourd like. Finish is bitter and a bit tannic, little sharp, flemmy somehow, mild phenols estery booze.

Mouth is med but little lighter bod, little booze, decent carb but a bit light.

Overall interesting but not great. Marshmallow came through nicely, but rest of beer was meh.

Shared with JLindros. Been waiting two years to try this one.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy burnt orange, pie filling esc. Really nice one finger head that leaves loads of lacing and a nice blanket. Beyond impressive for the ABV and style.

S - Aromas of faint vegetable, faint sweet marshmallow. Still, rather bland on the nose. I get a raw sweet potato on the finish. Light sugar sweetness. Quite underwhelming.

T - Taste is more like it. Lots of sweet marshmallow, lightly vegetable, sweet potato is there but not super prominent. Mostly just marshmallow with some alcohol phenols in the middle. The finish is rather bland. Definitely a marshmallow heavy beer with the sweet potato playing second fiddle. Some esters on the finish too.

M - Mouthfeel is alright, alcohol is hidden nicely though it is a little thin.

O - Overall this beer was rather underwhelming. The marshmallow is really nice, however, the sweet potato is rather underwhelming. A shame there isn't more. Really a let down.
