COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnoliaís original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnoliaís 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.

Near black pour with a nice khaki head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is the same with some caramel sweetness. Really nice flavor overall, sweet potato doesnít contribute much. Easy to drink.

Tap. Poured a deep black with a two-finger caramel-colored head. Didnít get the sweet potatoes coming through as advertised but did pick up the roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors. Great, typical stout - not too sweet from the lactose but just sweet enough to be very drinkable without losing the classic stout flavor (instead of being a milk stout).

Pours a deep black with brown highlights. Flavor is every-other-stout chocolate and coffee. Nose is plastic chocolate and coffee. Average mouthfeel. Meh.

Rustyham (1711) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Deep black, fluffy off white head. Aroma of roasting sweet potatoes. Flavor is nothing, very thin, some roasty malt bit more like skim milk and cigarette butts.

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Rich, dark brown with a thick creamy head and a strong sweet malt fragrance. Very rich, full taste - roasted malt with some coffee flavor. Very full feel in the mouth - a really filling beer.

Black gold. Quickly diminishing khaki head. Dark roasted malt aroma. Heavy carbonation which comes through fizzy on the palate. The beer has a long taste and almost tastes like smoked malt was used. Reminds me of urban camping. A bit thin in the body for a stout. Almost lagerish. Roasted malt aftertaste. Iím not tasting the potatoes or anything else mentioned in the.description except for the southernness.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Nashville Flying Saucer. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts and dark grains up front with a hint of underlying sweetness. Flavor does have a sweet potato note that works well with the dark grains and roasted malts.

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12oz bottle. Near black brew with some tan head. Aromas of yams, smoke, chocolate, and fresh coffee. Flavor is sweet - the sweet potatoes add some interesting spices. Would be amazing if it was a bit less sweet.

degbert (1001) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle (special tasting bottle -- not normally bottled). Nose is rich and smoky with coffee, chocolate, and orange notes. Pours an opaque brown-black with a light head. Not very sweet, with a round, glycerine mouthfeel and impressive notes of espresso; I can taste the sweet potatoes, and I like sweet potatoes, so bonus points there. One of the better examples of the style Iíve had.

Enjoyed on tap at a Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA...the butthole of America. Appearance is pitch black with a rich, robust light tan head, looks decadent. Aroma is very nice and unique, a bit of starchiness to it, light chocolate and cream. Taste is pretty outstanding, has a nice nutty flavor to it with obvious lactose presence, the sweet potato is great as a complimentary ingredient. Finishes a bit dry, moderate body and carbonation. Great stuff, probably wonít have many other brews from this small brewery but Iím enjoying this one for sure.
