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.

djd07 (5022) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2012
On tap Petrol Station. Pours a dark brown with ruby hue. The aroma is light roast and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with a rich coffee malt and lingering dry finish. Easy to drink a very good stout from Lazy Magnolia.

nuplastikk (4901) - 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.

Light roast here and the potato makes for a good infusion here. Pretty easy to drink. Light bittersweet finish. Bottle.

Aurelius (4559) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (4506) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle: Pours black with a thick brown head. Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee. Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness. Pretty tasty.

drfabulous (4484) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle best by 5/14 on the bottle. Black with tan head. Creamy with a bit of milk stout taste to it. Not sure what sweet potatoes do. Taste is porter/light stout.

ChainGangGuy (4482) - 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.

dmac (4474) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2015
12oz bottle via trade. Poured a medium density dark black with a smaller fizzy brown head. Aroma has an odd earthy sweetness that fades into a sugary bad chocolate. Body seems a little flat, softer carbonation and a milky watery mouthfeel. Flavor is the same as the aroma.

on draft at husk brewing, just an ashy thin weak stout, not sweet really at all, very plain and cheap tasting.
