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.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Very dark and opaque. Aroma is roasty with malt. Interesting and pretty good. Sweet but not overly so, definite roastiness and some flavor of sweet potato. Also notice a slight metallic aftertaste

Bottle thanks to Suttree. Pours opaque brown with ring of khaki head. Aroma: milky; chocolate; sweet potato pie, baking spice and all. Taste: chocolate, some spice, moderately sweet; sweet potato really comes through surprisingly. Again, like pie. Light bitterness in the finish. Medium body, creamy texture. Overall: I came looking for a random state tick, I left with a surprisingly tasty beer. Nice!

OldMrCrow (1810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle shared with Chris -- thanks. Mississippi tick, oh yeah! Pours dark (obviously) with a tan head. Gently sweet, roast and ash, mild sourness, definitely lactic, sweet potatoes all up in your face (though I wouldn’t even know it except for the recent SN beer camp 12-pack experience). A bit thin but otherwise unobjectionable.

I was pleasantly surprised by this. I had major doubts about beer with sweet potatoes, but the flavor was very good, clearly a sweet stout. Palate was a little thin when compared to other stouts, but very good for being in a southern state. Very impressed.

Pours black with low light tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, light vanilla, light roasted malt. Taste is light chocolate bitter. Light body with soft to average carbonation.

HeadyDE (499) - Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2014
bottle pour..fairly black color with tan decent head..nose has roasted nut character..some chocolate..bit of cinnamon..maybe nutmeg..mouthfeel is light bodied fairly thin palate with a little coating of sweetness..not really getting much of the sweet potato, but that is probably a good thing..happy to sample but real glad I only purchased a single of this..

JDBaker11058 (1246) - Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Appearance: dark brown, with a short-lived creamy tan head and no lacing. Aroma: beautiful smell of dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and milk chocolate, over a light earthy, toffee, leather note. Taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, vanilla, brulee’d sugar, with an earthy candied yam undertone. Finish: lingering bittersweet chocolate and vanilla cream, and again the earthy sweet potato note sticks around. Notes: Creamy palate, sweet but semi-dry flavors. Sweet potato adds a really nice note, and some other flavors (caramelized sugar, vanilla, etc) remind me of a Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole. Really quite enjoyable.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle: Pours black with a thick brown head. Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee. Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness. Pretty tasty.

shrubber85 (7553) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Lactic chocolate malt, ash and sweet potato aroma. Black with moderate long lasting tan head. Sweet cocoa malt and roasted sweet potato flavor. Lightly bitter ash finish. Light body. Not bad - would have liked more body.

rondphoto (1925) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, 1" creamy brown head, a few light strings of lace. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is thin, watery malt that grows much bigger in the palate, maybe adding some sweet potato in a somewhat burnt finish. Overall, it has a moment of big stout flavor, but mostly it doesn’t live up to the name.

cmiller54hr (45) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 1, 2014
12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours coal black w very minimal head. Can taste the sweet potato. Not as much of a coffee taste as most other stouts. A good beer I’d drink again but didn’t blow my socks off
