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.

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.

sepia with a thin coffee ring, large bubbled. Cigarette ash nose, oppressively smoky, lightly earthy. Sugary front palate hides smoke, but oxidized and woody through the sticky, thin finish.

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 (3509) - 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)

thegreenrooster (3423) - 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.

alexanderj (3381) - 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.

BelgianBeerGal (3316) - 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.

ads135 (3290) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 2, 2013
A bit more bland than I would’ve thought and I’m not sure what the sweet potato added to this. Nice mouthfeel, though, very creamy. Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.

Draft at Pizza Joint Evans. Jet black pour with a thin tan head. Scent is roasty, licorice and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee and hops.
