rougeau13 (1943) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2011
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.

dchmela (2600) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2011
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.

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.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
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)

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Black. Smokey, sweet aroma. Flavor is coffee and stout, plus some odd background notes. I see that that it is brewed with sweet potatoes. When I sampled it, I got some odd flavors and smells, but I didn’t immediately think sweet potato. But it works, I guess.

The nose is pretty undefined - a bit of roast but not much else. Flavor again is pretty restrained - a bit of roast, some bitterness.
