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.

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.

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.

djd07 (3699) - 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.

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.

RobertDale (3550) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2013
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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land
Pours a deep black with brown highlights. Flavor is every-other-stout chocolate and coffee. Nose is plastic chocolate and coffee. Average mouthfeel. Meh.

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer, Nashville. Pours black with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor is quite bitter- lots of roasted bitterness and mild bitter chocolate. Some saltiness like a potato skin. Robust palate. Pretty good stout, actually, although it wasn’t what I expected (I was expecting something sweeter given the name). 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

zvikar (3492) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft at Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours black with a thin khaki head that doesn’t leave any lacing. Not much on the nose. Some dark chocolate and raisin on the tongue. A bit of tartness and lactose on the finish. Solid but I’m not dying for another.

Cybercat (3375) - Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours a beautiful sable with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast coffee and molasses as well as burnt malt. Flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate tones with a hint of smoky wood. Full-bodied texture has some good fizz. Didn’t get any sweet potato or milk notes, but it is still a tasty and enjoyable stout.
