COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnolia’s original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnolia’s version of the ideal Southern-Style Stout. Jefferson Stout is brewed with sweet potatoes and lactose (milk sugar). The sweet potatoes provide the background to an impressive taste with added notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, roasted nuts, light coffee, and a hint of dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger light brown head that quickly fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and caramel. There is some moderate sour fruits in the middle. The finish has light-moderate coffee, light roasted nuts, and dusty flavors. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the sourness is clearly not supposed to be here and really hurts my rating.

Bottle->nonic. Deep brown with thick creamy tan head. A: chocolate and roasted malt, lactose. T: bitter cocoa, malt, metallic notes. An odd note of what presumably is sweet potato. Thin. Not particularly good.

Keg @ Boylan Heights. Deep brown with a small tan head. Nose is pretty creamy and sweet. Hazelnut coffee creamer. Brown sugar. Chocolate syrup. Taste is similar. Slightly thin nutty chocolate water. Nutella and brown sugar. Light body, creamy mouthfeel. Sort of boring.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, compliments of shrubber85, poured into a shaker. Black with small dark brown highlights and medium/small light brown head. Aroma is light lactose, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly creamy texture, and good medium-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt, some sweet potato, and hints of lactose. Not overly sweet, pretty good, shrubber85 with a state tick.

Malt and fresh bread on the nose. Creamy dark head. Toasted malt, spice, and molasses. Not my favorite, but interesting. I don't get much sweet potato ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toasted malt aroma with a khaki diminishing head. Initial toasted chocolate taste finishing with a sour yeast above average lasting finishing. I do not tend to like stouts but this one I could drink.
