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.

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.
