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.

On tap at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Pours black with a medium dense off white head. Has a roasted aroma that whimpers away. Fairly watery and unsatisfying due to the thin body. I have no idea what the sweet potatoes were supposed to contribute, but this is quite the pedestrian stout.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, 1" creamy brown head, a few light strings of lace. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is thin, watery malt that grows much bigger in the palate, maybe adding some sweet potato in a somewhat burnt finish. Overall, it has a moment of big stout flavor, but mostly it doesn’t live up to the name.

Pours a deep black with brown highlights. Flavor is every-other-stout chocolate and coffee. Nose is plastic chocolate and coffee. Average mouthfeel. Meh.

Bottle; dark brown color with a light brown head. Aroma of lactose, veggies, cocoa and caramel. Mineral finish, before surprising caramel note. Some veggie, char and caramel. Some sweetness.

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.

Kind of strange, where did the aroma go? Some coffee notes. Likelwise not too strong taste, small coffee, some choclate, little bitter. (Austin 201505)

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

Ron (3389) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 21, 2015
On tao at cooter Brown’s. 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.

Draft at the Rocket City Brewfest. Clear brown body. Cocoa powder nose. Thin disappointing.
