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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Aroma is straightforward Irish stout, nice coal and asphalt mellow roast and if I search I can find caramelized sweet potato. Ok not really. There is no discernible sweet potato character but the beer has solid body is well constructed. Very dry. Nice stout.

Suttree (5118) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Black. Smokey, sweet aroma. Flavor is coffee and stout, plus some odd background notes. I see that that it is brewed with sweet potatoes. When I sampled it, I got some odd flavors and smells, but I didn’t immediately think sweet potato. But it works, I guess.

kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a pitch black body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is roasty and sweet with some coffee notes and lactose. The flavor is not overly sweet, just the right balance between the lactose and the roasted malt. Can’t say I would ever even think there was sweet potato in here, but it is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clinginess on the finish from the lactose, light fizzy carbonation. Think I might like to try this on nitro maybe. Pretty nice all in all. One of the better Lazy Mag beers.

12oz bottle pours an inky black with some creamy, beige head. Nose is earthy, bread, malt, dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, bready, chocolate, cola, dirt. Earthy, dry finish.

ChainGangGuy (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011
16 ounce pint - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Very dark brown, nearing black in color with a scant, tan-hued head up on top.

Smell: Lightly roasty scent, hinting at a cup of weak coffee brewed for someone on a strict coffee budget or someone who really doesn’t like coffee all that much. A bit of chocolate, vanilla. The nose isn’t unpleasant, but it isn’t one to reach out and grab you.

Taste: A sweetish taste of dark maltiness, though not overtly flavorful following the example of the aroma, offering up only mild flavors of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness reminiscent of sweet grape. Very subtle bitterness. Semi-dry, malty, lightly minerally finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A pedestrian brew, lacking presence. It left my hankering for something better, so I opted for a Bell’s Kalamazoo for the next round.

nuplastikk (4321) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Tap on Bourbon Street. Thick opaque black with a steady oily beige head. Mellow roasty chocolate aroma. Classic stout, big mossy chocolate tones. Medium to full bodied, quite sessionable. Mild roasty coffee notes. Straightforward, a well done offering.

nick76 (4209) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2013
The aroma is toasted malt with coffee, chocolate, and nuts. The appearance is dark brown. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is a bit thin.overall underwhelming with no discernible sweet potato but drinkable if you can take lactose.

unclemattie (4155) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2009
It is a Sweet Potato Cream Stout, AWESOME! Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. 08 may 09. Dark brown pour. Aroma of roast and some coffee. Flavor has a nice roast, odd sweetness, some chicory, and light coffee. Considering it is a beer from Mississippi, this beer is awesome. A+

boFNjackson (4124) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle... Poured black with a moderate head. Malted tones, some roast, and a hint of sweet potato on the nose. It was nice. Nothing too crazy or special about this one. But a nice drinking beer none the less. Some hints of light cocoa and lactose. Sort of reminded me of that dish with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Some roast and toasted sugars/malts. Certainly a stout worth trying.

Aurelius (4104) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2013
An unusual aroma - spry, doughy/spicy with just a hint of dark overcast. OK bottle - standard longneck. Poor labeling from a marketing standpoint - not particularly informative, attractive or readable. The beer itself has no residual head much, and is a dark, dark brown-black (as expected.) Oooh - twangy. Very sour up front, almost like a Berliner. Sourness dominates even the roast. Not very bitter. Blind, I would have never guessed that this was a stout - I’d have been very hard pressed to identify it. Pla doh aftertaste. Meh. ABC, Bull Run. Something is wrong with this beer, I will give it another shot on another day.
