Funky Buddha Sweet Potato Casserole

This was the last beer that I had at The Pour House. Funky Buddha has recently expanded their offerings to bottles, so I see more of them in the Philly area now. Let’s see how this one was.


ABV: 7.9%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Strong Ale with Sweet Potatoes, Vanilla, and Spices.
Drop the dressing and ditch the pumpkin, Sweet Potato Casserole is fresh out of the oven and ready to party. This fall treat is just like moms used to make – only if moms had penchant for gooey marshmallow, fall spices, and gobs of sweet potato cavorting in one sinful glass. Bottoms up.”

Random: This came in at 30 IBUs.

The beer poured with half a finger of off-white head. It went away quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was slightly hazy and copper-colored with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with cinnamon, nutmeg and burnt marshmallows. There was also a touch of sweet potato and butter. The taste had the same spices as the nose, imparting, nutmeg, cinnamon and butter. Allspice came through too. The alcohol was present, but was quickly covered up by the burnt marshmallow note. Sweet potato came through next. The body was on the medium side with a lot of carbonation to it. It had a lengthy finish with marshmallow. I enjoyed this beer, especially since it was a unique take on a pumpkin beer and I loved the marshmallow flavor. If you see this bottle in the Fall, grab one. You won’t be disappointed.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
