3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tao at cooter Brownís. Aroma of chocolate, cream, sweet potato, vanilla, light roast. The appearance is jet black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate and roasty. Not as sweet as the aroma. Not quite as thick in body as it should be, actually middle of the road. The finish is roasty, light resin, vegetable. Good overall.

[March 11, 2011]
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 didnít really get any sweet potato until I took a few sips. Itís kind of mild but provides a smoothness, for lack of a better word. Itís a pretty sweet beer with plenty of chocolatey flavor, but not over the top. This is one of the better things Iíve had from Lazy Magnolia.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, Lazy Mag isnít nailing appearance. In fact, this one wasnít a "stout" (flavor or mouthfeel) at all in my book. Nevertheless, this was tasty, a nice coffee porter, imo. Pour was brown, nothing close to black, and the head was small (even in a full sized pour) with weak lacing. The aroma was mostly of coffee. The flavor was also mostly of coffee with a mouthfeel that was somewhat thin, especially for a stout. Yet, this was also quite drinkable, one Iíd recommend trying if you donít expect the average "stout."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(from 2012 notes)
Growler fill from the first pour out of a new keg at Moondog Growlers. Poured about 1 hour later into a Porter Bar goblet.
Pours a dark reddish-brown, and sits almost black in the glass. A modest but creamy tan head fades fast and leaves little lacing.
Aroma: dark roasted chocolate malt, sweet with perhaps some sweet potato; faint earthy hop notes.
T: A sweet and creamy flavor, with hints of milf chocolate and coffee. Blemished by a faint sour note that, to be fair, is characteristic of milk stouts. The taste actually deteriorates a little with warming, becoming more sour and less malty, unusual for a stout.
M: Creamy smooth; full bodied; acceptable low carbonation.
O: Another (with pecan beer) disappointing offering from this brewer, but better than the pecan ale and certainly a decent brew.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours dark unclear thick coffee black with a big creamy dark beige head.baroma is light with roasted caramel malts and light earthy potato notes. Flavor starts out with some sweet caramel and definitely sweet potato presence. Then a sweetness of lactose sugars helps end with suggestion of vanilla, a nice blend.

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.

Odd very thing and watery stout. Pours a brownish translucence and the flavor follows suit. Tastes watered down with no differentiating elements of sweet potato.

12oz bottle. So, why does this not have flavor? Light soft roast, maybe mild lactose sweetness. All decent stuff and then its just empty, dirty water flavor. Iím flummoxed. Chalky.
