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.

On tap Petrol Station. Pours a dark brown with ruby hue. The aroma is light roast and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with a rich coffee malt and lingering dry finish. Easy to drink a very good stout from Lazy Magnolia.

kramer (4700) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a pitch black body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is roasty and sweet with some coffee notes and lactose. The flavor is not overly sweet, just the right balance between the lactose and the roasted malt. Can’t say I would ever even think there was sweet potato in here, but it is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clinginess on the finish from the lactose, light fizzy carbonation. Think I might like to try this on nitro maybe. Pretty nice all in all. One of the better Lazy Mag beers.

On tap at Taco Mac in Chattanooga. Pours dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, and some sweet potato. Flavors of roasted malts and chocolate, and a bit of underlying sweet potato. Body is a little thin, but very drinkable stout.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Draft at Barley’s in Knoxville. Pours orange-edged black with small khaki head. The aroma is roasty and coffee-ish with some dark chocolate, a somewhat sweet oat note, and some distant creosote. The flavor is weak coffee, peanut shells, slight saltiness, and a husky finish.

Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
Very dark colour. Looks quite appetizing. Chocolatey nose. Chocolatey, fudgey stout with light roast at the back and a generally sweet finish. Not getting much sweet potato but this is good stout.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Aroma is straightforward Irish stout, nice coal and asphalt mellow roast and if I search I can find caramelized sweet potato. Ok not really. There is no discernible sweet potato character but the beer has solid body is well constructed. Very dry. Nice stout.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malty aroma, with coffee and sweet malts. The flavor has hard roasted malts, coffee, and a light nutty sweetness. Pretty good.

nearbeer (3442) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft from Casual Pint. Opaque black with a lasting quarter inch of spongy foam. Nose is dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee with sour cream. Flavor is dark chocolate, graham cracker, ash, chicory, lightly tart berries and cream. Medium body is smooth, but tingly with acidity and a medium carbonation. Nearly a sweet stout, but mostly well-balanced, tasty, and an easy drinker.

Tap. Oh, how good this beer could be with a slightly bigger malt bill to make this a thicker body; blame the stupid Mississippi beer laws for that one.. Flavor is really nice, malt and chocolate balanced with a nice hop level to keep it from being sweet, with the sweet potato smoothing out the edges.

Big thanks to jzzbassman for this one! Pours a cola brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, and most definitely some potato starch. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, roasted coffee, fruity sweetness, and nice level of sweet potato. Interesting and pretty nice!
