Poured from a 12oz bottle into a lager glass. L: Weak head, thin ring throughout drink. Black opaque. S: Wonderful smoke, sweet cream aroma. Coffee mocha. T: creamy mocha. Hint of sweetness, smokey overtones. Root vegetable mineral hints impact the taste and feel. F: a bit thin, but decent cling to teeth. O: not much to look at, but the aroma is inviting, the taste follows, and the finish is smooth. Pretty good.

Bottle. Highly carbonated. Dull flavor profile. Coffee, dark chocolate notes. Disappointing.

Pours dark with only amber showing through at the edges. Thick brown head that dissipates and leaves only a speck of lacing. Smell is charred bitter malt with a faint sweetness and a hint of sweet potato. The taste is charred marshmallow and sweet potato with a burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly light for a stout.

Deep black liquid, oily and smooth appearance, beige head, 1/3", good appearance overall. Aroma has some roast, didn't gather anything from the sweet potatoes.

Taste delivered some chocolate, the lactose/sweetness was done well in the taste and mouthfeel. Carbonation on point. Sweet potato as it warms. Kind of complex when you think about it, the roasted malt, lactose, sweet potato, coffee malt residuals. Nice low abv beer which carves itself out a place in the beer world.
