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.

burg326 (5369) - Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2012
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.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Aroma is straightforward Irish stout, nice coal and asphalt mellow roast and if I search I can find caramelized sweet potato. Ok not really. There is no discernible sweet potato character but the beer has solid body is well constructed. Very dry. Nice stout.

JStax (5219) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a darker brown with a fizzy head of khaki foam that fizzles down to a ring around the edge of the glass. The aroma has a lot of roast character to it with moderate vanilla bean notes. The taste lends some zippy sweetness akin to marshmallow and vanilla. The sweet potato does not really come through for me. Lighter to medium in body and higher in carbonation. Slick, prickly mouthfeel.

Cybercat (5121) - 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.

sonnycheeba (5078) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, sweet potatoes, light earthiness, some chocolate, and faint lactose. Flavor is dry and bland with just some roast, chocolate, and very sweetness. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

Aurelius (5070) - 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.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Deep dark brown body. Aromas of malt, coffee and chocolate. Nice flavor of malt, coffee and chocolate as well. The finish was a little lighter than most, but still had a decent creaminess.

nearbeer (4879) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4803) - Woodstock, 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.

snoworsummer (4700) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2015
From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes sweet, like light pecans, starchy potatoes, light chocolate, toasted malt, creamy. Light body and low carbonation. Light starchy sweet potato aroma, with some chocolate, caramel, and toasted malt.
