Tennessee Brew Works "Country Roots Stout"
on tap @ ACME Fee & Seed, Nashville, TN
$6 per pint

Recommended to me by the bartender at ACME Feed & Seed, I was happy to try Country Roots. I had no idea it was made with sweet potatoes, and I wouldn't have known that to this day had I not seen it here (of course in the mash the sweet potato just becomes another starch to be converted; if there's some flavor passed through I'm pretty sure the roasted barley just overtakes it). What I found was a well-rounded and balanced stout that had notes of toast, grain, caramel malts, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, black coffee, and cream. It wasn't particularly hoppy (nor do I feel it should have been), but there was a bit of grassiness in the back. A moderate bitterness balanced it, and it was a remarkably pleasant, creamy-smooth, and gently roasty stout that I enjoyed steadily sipping at while the band played. Worth trying.

I am told that this stout is made with sweet potatoes. I could not detect this. It is black in color with little head showing up on the plastic glass. No lace.

The flavor is mild for the style--not much coffee. Decent body and the carbonation is also good.
