12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and nuts. Tart stachy quality. Chocolate, dark fruit, candy sugar. Strange one. Think I kind of like it.

Nice dark color. This beer has a nice balance of flavor but it’s a little thin. Easy drinking.

Lazy Magnolia seems to be a mixed bag. This disappointing stout failed to impress and left me looking to another beer to salvage the evening. It lacks any glaring flaws but its forgettable nature and timid approach render it lost in a sea of thousands of similar beers.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid black base offers a bit of promise. Carbonation breaks the veil of creamy ochre head from time to time. Smoky malts, coffee, and sweet potato rise up with a strong burnt profile like toast left too long in the oven.

Flavor / Palate - Coffee scraped from the bottom of the pot chars the tongue with a burnt texture. Roasted ash briefly refreshes before a long lasting bitterness sticks to the throat. If it did not try to be so heavy handed it would have been far more enjoyable. Instead it takes things to such an extreme that it becomes immediately polarizing.

Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Body’s a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.

Via trade with Crajun. Lovely aroma of chocolate, cream, sweet potato, vanilla, light roast. The appearance is jet black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate, vegetable, roasty. Not as sweet as the aroma. Not quite as tick in body as it should be, actually middle of the road. The finish is roasty, light resin, vegetable. Good overall, some qualities better than others.

Sampled at the 8th Annual Music City Brewer’s Festival. Pitch black, tan head. Aroma is astringent roast, chocolate, coffee. Taste is the same, bitter astringent malt finish, typical stout flavors are slightly muddled.

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.

Wow, Lazy Mag isn’t nailing appearance. In fact, this one wasn’t a "stout" (flavor or mouthfeel) at all in my book. Nevertheless, this was tasty, a nice coffee porter, imo. Pour was brown, nothing close to black, and the head was small (even in a full sized pour) with weak lacing. The aroma was mostly of coffee. The flavor was also mostly of coffee with a mouthfeel that was somewhat thin, especially for a stout. Yet, this was also quite drinkable, one I’d recommend trying if you don’t expect the average "stout."

1/2 pint at Trappeze Pub. This is rather dark with a decent head. The aroma is sweet with lots of chocolate and caramel with a nuttiness. I didn’t really get any sweet potato until I took a few sips. It’s kind of mild but provides a smoothness, for lack of a better word. It’s a pretty sweet beer with plenty of chocolatey flavor, but not over the top. This is one of the better things I’ve had from Lazy Magnolia.
