Appearance: Black body with a thick dark khaki head. The head is full, fluffy, and leaves good lacing.

Aroma: I get a sweet burnt caramel aroma that tends to be slightly acrid...a bit like opening an old charcoal grill. It's not really a bad smell it just isn't something that draws me in.

Taste: It delivers a good combination of slightly bitter burnt chocolate flavor with a bit of a sweet caramel ending. I didn't taste any sweet potato.

Mouthfeel: It feels pretty light and watery for a milk stout. Very little body and not especially smooth.

Overall: It's a fairly average stout but it edges towards the lower side when it does not deliver much of a mouthfeel and presents a mediocre aroma and flavor. There isn't a whole lot to say about this beer. I would pick an alternate stout if I could get one, but this is good enough to enjoy if nothing else is available. The "sweet potato" is a bit misleading because I don't taste it at all. I had it fresh from the brewery and in the bottle and I got zero sweet potato both times. It's just a straight-forward sweet stout without the body.

I was so excited to try this. I'm not sure if it's just not my style or what. But this was so close to a drain poor. It smells AMAZING. But there is just some kind of nastiness to the taste of this beer.

The flavor is very simple and subtle. Not much roastiness to the stout, and a little bit of sweet potato flavor. It's probably good that the stout flavor is so subtle because otherwise you couldn't taste the sweet potato at all.
