Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnolia’s original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnolia’s version of the ideal Southern-Style Stout.

The sweet potatoes provide the background to an impressive taste with added notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors.

32 ounce growler bought in Greenville, poured a dark black color with aroams of light chocolate, roast, some brown sugar and a touch of milk. Flavors are the same with light sweet patato comming though, you have to really let this sit out for a bit to get the sweet patato flavor, but decent overall.

Butters (3844) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2009
On draft at the flying saucer in memphis and at J Clydes in birmingham. Very dark brown pour with no real amount of tan head. Nose is chocolate and has a slight nuttiness with coffee notes. Flavor is mainly a sweet chocolate. I was able to detect a hint of sweet potatoe on the finish, but I think that was only cause I was told to look for it.

nearbeer (3840) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft from Casual Pint. Opaque black with a lasting quarter inch of spongy foam. Nose is dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee with sour cream. Flavor is dark chocolate, graham cracker, ash, chicory, lightly tart berries and cream. Medium body is smooth, but tingly with acidity and a medium carbonation. Nearly a sweet stout, but mostly well-balanced, tasty, and an easy drinker.

Black gold. Quickly diminishing khaki head. Dark roasted malt aroma. Heavy carbonation which comes through fizzy on the palate. The beer has a long taste and almost tastes like smoked malt was used. Reminds me of urban camping. A bit thin in the body for a stout. Almost lagerish. Roasted malt aftertaste. I’m not tasting the potatoes or anything else mentioned in the.description except for the southernness.

12 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roased malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and some smoke. Didn’t get much sweet potato in aroma or taste. Interesting.

Iphonephan (3629) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. No lacing.. Roasted malt aroma. Fairly thin and astringent, but the flavors are nice - caramel and raisin notes.

zvikar (3612) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 5, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Pours Brown to black with a nice beige head, aroma of chocolate, honey, malt and sweet potato, flavor is slightly roasted with chocolate and cherry acidity, medium bodied.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 16, 2010
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.
