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.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
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.

chinchill (1656) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2014
(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.

tomer (1644) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2014
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, creamy long lasting light brown head, very dark brown but not completely opaque, aroma of mollases, dark bread and some pruness, dark chocolate, and some sweet potatoes in the back, flavour of coffee, mocha and charred wood, quite dry, light bodied,. the aroma promises much, the flavour dissapoints. Fair.

Leafs93 (1644) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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.

Fairly typical stout with a nice creaminess. No sweet potato comes through in the taste but there’s a bit of chocolate and coffee.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12oz bottle. Near black brew with some tan head. Aromas of yams, smoke, chocolate, and fresh coffee. Flavor is sweet - the sweet potatoes add some interesting spices. Would be amazing if it was a bit less sweet.

Tap. Oh, how good this beer could be with a slightly bigger malt bill to make this a thicker body; blame the stupid Mississippi beer laws for that one.. Flavor is really nice, malt and chocolate balanced with a nice hop level to keep it from being sweet, with the sweet potato smoothing out the edges.

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Aroma: Sweet potato is not apparent in the nose; lactose more noticeable along with pleasant coffee notes and very light chocolate. Appearance: Dark chestnut brown with a slim tan head that culminates with a bubbly ring. Flavor: Almost like a session foreign stout; a touch of light berry esters up front that transitions into coffee; chocolate is nearly absent and still no sweet potato. Palate: Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Despite the lowish rating, I could drink this all day. It doesn’t have the flavor presence of the top tier stouts, but it’s a fascinating little beer. After rinsing my palate with a glass of water- a lingering, but unmistakable sweet potato flavor finally made an appearance. A concept worth repeating. Bottle at 4.5%
