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.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Nice aromas of roasted malt and some lactose, imparting notes of coffee with cream, freshly baked dark bread and notes of vanilla and dark molasses.

Taste: Pretty, good. Roasted malt and coffee up front, followed by some freshly baked dark bread, brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness, vanilla and slight touch of licorice. Not much in the way of hops or really any sweet potatoes or vegetables or fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. Some decent carbonation, much more than usually expect in a cream stout, but not enough to tickle the taste buds or anything. With an ABV of 4.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good milk stout, possessing nice malt, coffee and cream flavors, balanced nicely with some sweetness, but I didn’t get any sweet potato flavors or complementary spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, as you get in say a pumpkin beer or in sweet potato dishes, so in that area, this beer is a little bit of a disappointment. I’m glad I tried it, but I probably won’t get it again.

Pours mahogany with 2 fingers of caramel colored head. Traces of lacing & even less head retention

S: Carob & cocoa, some dark chocolate as this warms

T: Follows the nose, iron & Baker's Chocolate & dryness up front. Carob, a bit of raisin, iron & molasses as this warms, faint lactose flavor as well & a little bit of dark chocolate. Finishes dry with lactose & iron & a touch of cocoa sweetnesss

MF: Medium bodied with modest carbonation, thins out a bit once warm, dry-ish

Didn't really taste any sweet potato, but a decent milk stout none the less. Easy to drink

Pours to a thin, tan head that dies. Opaque mahogany color. Aroma is cafe mocha and half-and-half with some roasted nuts and vanilla. Flavor is coffee, nuts, roasted malt and milk sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and co2 is pleasantly low. Overall a solid quaff.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, roasted malts, some sweet potato. Taste is much milder than the smell. Some smoke, light sweetness, a bitter at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
