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.

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.

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.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft at Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours black with a thin khaki head that doesnít leave any lacing. Not much on the nose. Some dark chocolate and raisin on the tongue. A bit of tartness and lactose on the finish. Solid but Iím not dying for another.

magsinva (876) - Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Tap @ flying saucer Nashville - pours pitch with a tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, not getting the advertised sweet potato. Taste is sweet with a dry finish. Mouth feel is full like milk. Overall, solid effort, but I still feel cheated by the missing sweet potatoes.

This has got to be my favorite dark beer. I love the idea of having sweet potatoes as an ingredient. When we tried the unfiltered version of this beer, we found it had layers of flavor and surprisingly finished with a Thin Mint taste! Rob, unfortunately, is not a fan of dark beers, and he said the filtered version "tastes like a cigarette" to him. Every time someone pours him a bit of Jefferson Stout, he pours it into my glass when no one is looking, which is fine by me. :o)

daknole (8950) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Very dark brown pour, brown head. Raisins, prunes, pumpernickel bread, chocolate, coffee and roast in the nose. Flavor leads with dark fruit, lactose sugar, prunes, roasted malt, chocolate. Pretty good stuff.

Cybercat (3230) - Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours a beautiful sable with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast coffee and molasses as well as burnt malt. Flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate tones with a hint of smoky wood. Full-bodied texture has some good fizz. Didnít get any sweet potato or milk notes, but it is still a tasty and enjoyable stout.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Draft. Deep brown/black body. Tan head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet coffee, milk. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Herbal flavor, along with a some metallic acidity, in the finish. Dry and drinkable but less than notable.
