Lazy Magnolia's description included this: "The sweet potatoes provide the background to an impressive taste with added notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors." I detected no chocolate or coffee in this. It tastes like an amber lager.

A-black, thin light tan head

S-surprisingly i'm not picking up not much more than a light hint of sweet potato, and possibly some cream. very very unique for stout

T-I'm getting some coffee notes with a sweet potato after-taste but more than anything this beer is just watery. it is absolutely a terrible stout. I'm not sure what kind of beer you're wanting to drink if you enjoy this. If you're expecting a stout or anything that resembles one, this beer will disappoint you.

M-I don't think there is actually any carbonation. It goes down more like orange juice.

D-not drinkable whatsoever. only my respect for beer kept me from spilling this down the drain.

Drain pour. Very disappointing watery, thin mouthfeel. The taste is a combination of sour milk stout and dirty sweet potatoes. It's as if they pulled them right out of the ground, didn't wash them, and chucked them in the beer.

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.
