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: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Deepest black color with a thick caramel head with good retention.
Aroma full of predominant chocolate and cocoa notes.
Bold flavor with notes of licorice, homemade coffee, mild sour milk, mild charcoal, molasses, caramels, cocoa and vanilla. The sweet potatoes might be the missing piece in the puzzle. Quite dry aftertaste with a lingering espresso coffee note.
Medium body with good carbonation. Smooth sensation.
A roasted milky stout, gladly not overly sweet and with predominant coffee and cocoa notes.
