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.

Iphonephan (3712) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, 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.

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.

Cybercat (3571) - 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.

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 (3505) - 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)

alexanderj (3349) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle; dark brown color with a light brown head. Aroma of lactose, veggies, cocoa and caramel. Mineral finish, before surprising caramel note. Some veggie, char and caramel. Some sweetness.

thegreenrooster (3341) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pour is a black with a very small tan head. Aroma is a decent roast malt with some bitter chocolate. Flavor is a nice char malt with some sweetness and caramel. I did not get an sweet potato but that’s alright it’s not my favorite thing. Decent stout though. This beer from this brewer I thought I would like the least I actually liked this best.

kaser (3306) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Poured from draft at the avenue pub in New Orleans. Milky and light. Slight but taste. One of the milkier stouts I've had. Very good.

BelgianBeerGal (3254) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle, possibly from Gatlinburg. Dark stout pour with a light brown head that dissipates quickly. Sweet coffee aroma. Flavor is a touch thin but leads with some coffee. Okay.
