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.

Aurelius (4651) - 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.

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

wlajwl (4617) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Aroma is chocolate, mild coffee and a hint of sweetness potatoes. The flavor is chocolate, dark malts, mild coffee, slight potato funk and a n acidic finish.

bytemesis (4599) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Tap. Pours dark black, large creamy brown head, nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, cocoa, rubber. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, bit of chocolate candy, a touch odd. Medium body. Not bad.

ChainGangGuy (4531) - 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.

Iphonephan (4437) - 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.

unclemattie (4357) - 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+

nick76 (4314) - 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.
