look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mason glass.

L: Black pour with faint tannish head. No significant lacing.

S: Roasted malts.. faint cocoa.

T/F: Roasted malt character is dominant... notes of cocoa and roast coffee but rather subdued. Not picking up on the sweet potato. Not as sweet as I was expecting, which isn't a bad thing. Somewhat thin, to be expected given the low ABV. Low carbonation. Finish is dry.

O: Pretty bland for a milk stout... lacking in any real dominant flavor. Low ABV so you could easily have a few of them... but then again... why would you want to.

Very sweet with some roasted grain flavor, not much else. Slightly tangy and not in a good way. Not undrinkable but sure nothing special. Little head, no lacing.

Pours a very thick dark color, the smell is for milk with a little hint of the sweet potato. The taste is milky with a thickness to it. I picked up on coffee and some chocolate flavor but not much of a sweet potato. Overall I would say a nice stout but really was looking for more flavor.

2.81/5  rDev -21.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Look-The look is dark.Very dark indeed.No head on this one at all.

Smell- The Smell is of burnt campfire wood and ash.This beer smells the way it looks ,very dark and mischievous.

Taste- The taste is very dark as well with notes of chickory and campfire.I do pick up on some sweetness but it is very faint.

Feel-Feels quite dull and too smokey for my liking.I have had beer with smoke flavor but in this beer i feel it does not fit.

Overall-Maybe not the worst i have had but this beer left me wanting more and i felt like something was missing and left much to be desired.I did not taste any sweet potato at all and was very dissappointed in that aspect.
