3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Music City Brewer’s Fest. Draft. Pours dark with a light tan head. No sweet potatoes detected, but quite tasty. Fairly sweet, a bit of fruitiness, touch of licorice, chocolate, and coffee. Don’t have a real strong memory of this one. I should try it again.

The sweet potatoes is not very pronounced, but it is one of the best sweet stouts I’ve had. Has all the roasted flavors I like in a beer.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 On tap at Luna’s in lake charles, LA. Dark brown with a slight beige head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, smoke, and a bit of sweetness from the lactose/sweet potato. Tastes roasted and slightly sweet, with a mild coffee bitterness. Medium bodied, a little creamy, and moderately carbonated. Decent stuff.

Growler from my buddy Aaron. Pours black with a thick off white head. Huge coffee, lactose, sweet potato, chocolate and roasted grain aroma. Taste is smooth and creamy with notes of chocolate and roasted grain. Complex, tasty and very sessionable stout.

[March 11, 2011]
1/2 pint at Trappeze Pub. This is rather dark with a decent head. The aroma is sweet with lots of chocolate and caramel with a nuttiness. I didn’t really get any sweet potato until I took a few sips. It’s kind of mild but provides a smoothness, for lack of a better word. It’s a pretty sweet beer with plenty of chocolatey flavor, but not over the top. This is one of the better things I’ve had from Lazy Magnolia.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Big and rich character, and I don’t mean the country band. Sweet and quite creamy. Not a trace of any sweet potato, but after seeing the canned yams at the brewery in Kiln, I had to give this try. I’d guess they add the thick body, maybe some of the sweetness. Otherwise, you’d just find this as a nice milky, creamy sweet stout. (#4052, 12/18/2010)
