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.

piscator34 (1946) - 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.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Poured from a party pig into a Lazy Magnolia pint glass. Pours dark brown with only the slightest amount of light showing through the edges. The head was a massive light mocha which lingers as a cap and leaves good lacing. The aroma is fairly mild and dominated by dark roasted malts and lactose. There is also some sweet sugary notes that might be attributable to the sweet potatoes. The taste is even sweeter than the aroma suggests with some chocolate, brown sugar and sweet potatoes. There is still some roasted malts in the background but this a very sweet stout. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation. This is an extremely drinkable stout and one of the better sessionable stouts I’ve had in a while. I’m glad I had the opportunity to pick this up, and it is, without a doubt, the best beer I’ve had from my home state of Mississippi.

crazyvin (1901) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
A black body with red highlights. Initially it poured with a thick brown head but if faded away almost completely. Aroma had a nice mix of roasted and coffee malts and a nice semi-sweet chocolate profile. Flavor seemed to have more of it roasted qualities present than its sweeter notes. It wasn’t a bold roasted flavor it was just the dominate flavor. A slight sense of smoke to it in the background. Aftertaste seemed to have more of a sweet potato peel flavor than the actual potato. It added a some sweetness and an earthy bitterness. Body was smooth and had a good mouth feel. No carbonation.

Draft sample at the Free the Hops 2009 Blastoff Party. Black in the glass with a tan head that had some lasting a light lace. Roasty malt aroma with milk chocolate undertones. The flavor also found roast and chocolate with some coffee. Medium body with a coffee aftertaste. Tasty!

Draught. This is a nice smooth stout that goes down well as an after dinner special.

Holy lord did i do some work to score this beer. I got it at a place called Last Call in jackson ms. There were alot of gangsters shooting pool listening to pantera and two butch as fuck lesbians making out outside on a car, making me sick. The beer was solid, the waitress made me have a sample before ordering a full pint due to the disgust most local patrons found with the brew. I found it to be quite decent. It was dark, thick, nothing stood out, but it wasnt that weak ass biersch/hops stout. this was a good beer, i wouldnt expect anything less from a brewery that is located in the hometown of brett favre.

Deep black, fluffy off white head. Aroma of roasting sweet potatoes. Flavor is nothing, very thin, some roasty malt bit more like skim milk and cigarette butts.

Pours deep dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roast and caramel. I did not pick up any sweet potato. Taste is sweet with a touch of acidic tartness. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with soft carbonation.
