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.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - NOV 22, 2011
32oz growler shared with tasting group, poured into a Tilquin tumbler. Typical stout vibe...pitch black with a cm of tan head. Not too much going on in the aroma, yet I do pick up small traces of roast and coffee creamer.Taste contains lactose sugars, light roast, fruity ale yeast, and cream. A great sweet stout, but a detectable level of coffee/chocolate would have made this a winner.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011
16 ounce pint - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Very dark brown, nearing black in color with a scant, tan-hued head up on top.

Smell: Lightly roasty scent, hinting at a cup of weak coffee brewed for someone on a strict coffee budget or someone who really doesn’t like coffee all that much. A bit of chocolate, vanilla. The nose isn’t unpleasant, but it isn’t one to reach out and grab you.

Taste: A sweetish taste of dark maltiness, though not overtly flavorful following the example of the aroma, offering up only mild flavors of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness reminiscent of sweet grape. Very subtle bitterness. Semi-dry, malty, lightly minerally finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A pedestrian brew, lacking presence. It left my hankering for something better, so I opted for a Bell’s Kalamazoo for the next round.

growler. big chocolate nose with lighter marshmallow notes. almost black with a small tan head. flavors of milk chocolate and some ash. i don’t notice sweet potato, but i figure that would be ha hard flavor to pick up. medium bodied.

nbondi (201) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Very dark espresso. Almost black with very little tan head. I have a bit of a cold, but smell absolutely nothing for a nose. Medium-heavy body with good carbonation. Tastes of lactose, some smoke, leather. Not over-bearing, but pretty darn nice. With a 5% abv, I’d be happy to try this many more times today.

Draft. Awesome palate; super smoky and chocolatey. Dry and tart finish. Very good.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
On nitro at Avenue Pub. Black in colour with low carbonation. Aromas are of fruity English yeast, chocolate, and charcoal. Flavours are of milk chocolate, coffee grounds, lactose, and malted milk. A bit mouthcoating, but the charred malts cleans things up pretty well. An above average sweet stout. I doubt I could drink more than one pint of this in an evening.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2011
draft. Creamy vanilla on the nose with hints of chocolate. Pours black with a dense off white head. Creamy with bitter chocolate with vanilla notes and milk chocolate. Starts out creamy but finishes very dry, nice session beer!

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2011
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.
