3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle labeled "Lazy Magnolia Jeff Stout" from the Beer Of The (Every Other) Month club. Opaque brown hue, sweet aroma of sweet potato and rock candy with some good roasted malt character, flavor of coffee/roasted malt/some sweetness with a little chemical taste distracting from the flavor somewhat. Body is a bit thin for a stout but not bad overall.
Tasted on September 7, 2013.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An unusual aroma - spry, doughy/spicy with just a hint of dark overcast. OK bottle - standard longneck. Poor labeling from a marketing standpoint - not particularly informative, attractive or readable. The beer itself has no residual head much, and is a dark, dark brown-black (as expected.) Oooh - twangy. Very sour up front, almost like a Berliner. Sourness dominates even the roast. Not very bitter. Blind, I would have never guessed that this was a stout - I’d have been very hard pressed to identify it. Pla doh aftertaste. Meh. ABC, Bull Run. Something is wrong with this beer, I will give it another shot on another day.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and nuts. Tart stachy quality. Chocolate, dark fruit, candy sugar. Strange one. Think I kind of like it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of a buddy who got it through a monthly craft beer club. My first Mississippi brew. Intriguing description and novel use of sweet potatoes but it fell a bit flat for me. Poured a light syrupy deep brown with a thin khaki head. Mild coffee and cocoa aroma. First sip was thinner Han expected and he the texture was lackluster overall. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and a touch of charred toffee. Glad I had a chance to sample this Deep South brew but a bit disappointed in the end.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a translucent brownish black on tap with dissipating tan head. Aroma is lactose with a lot of roast behind it. Taste is smoke and roasted malt, no real creaminess or lactose. Meh.
