Nice dark color. This beer has a nice balance of flavor but it’s a little thin. Easy drinking.

Lazy Magnolia seems to be a mixed bag. This disappointing stout failed to impress and left me looking to another beer to salvage the evening. It lacks any glaring flaws but its forgettable nature and timid approach render it lost in a sea of thousands of similar beers.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid black base offers a bit of promise. Carbonation breaks the veil of creamy ochre head from time to time. Smoky malts, coffee, and sweet potato rise up with a strong burnt profile like toast left too long in the oven.

Flavor / Palate - Coffee scraped from the bottom of the pot chars the tongue with a burnt texture. Roasted ash briefly refreshes before a long lasting bitterness sticks to the throat. If it did not try to be so heavy handed it would have been far more enjoyable. Instead it takes things to such an extreme that it becomes immediately polarizing.

kerenmk (3205) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Body’s a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.

Via trade with Crajun. Lovely aroma of chocolate, cream, sweet potato, vanilla, light roast. The appearance is jet black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate, vegetable, roasty. Not as sweet as the aroma. Not quite as tick in body as it should be, actually middle of the road. The finish is roasty, light resin, vegetable. Good overall, some qualities better than others.

Sampled at the 8th Annual Music City Brewer’s Festival. Pitch black, tan head. Aroma is astringent roast, chocolate, coffee. Taste is the same, bitter astringent malt finish, typical stout flavors are slightly muddled.
