Rich, full flavored with a slight bitterness. Great Sweet Potato finish. Not as thick as my favorite stout, Guinness but a nice niche with the sweet potatoes...
My favorite way to drink it?
Here in hancock County we make a drink called Prailines ’n Cream. It’s Southern Pecan and Jefferson Stout in a Black and Tan Fashion... Great with the combination of sweet potatoes and pecans... both flavors are truely southern...

Another great selection by this brewery. No heavy flavor or taste. This beer is full of nice subtleties. The sweet potato is a great addition. I recommend this to anyone likes a great stout or someone who isnt too sure about dark heavy beers. This one is easy drinking and lighter than most stouts.

This has got to be my favorite dark beer. I love the idea of having sweet potatoes as an ingredient. When we tried the unfiltered version of this beer, we found it had layers of flavor and surprisingly finished with a Thin Mint taste! Rob, unfortunately, is not a fan of dark beers, and he said the filtered version "tastes like a cigarette" to him. Every time someone pours him a bit of Jefferson Stout, he pours it into my glass when no one is looking, which is fine by me. :o)

The sweet potatoes is not very pronounced, but it is one of the best sweet stouts I’ve had. Has all the roasted flavors I like in a beer.

Great stout. Kind of sweet to taste and just a smooth feel. Pours very dark with an espresso colored head. Good head but little lacing. Great overall stout.

Pours dark brown with a nice, light brown head. Smells of roasted malt, some molasses, spicy. Tastes roasty and chocolatey with a nice, full bodied finish.

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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 I’ve had all but one of the Lazy Magnolia brews and this is probably my favorite. Pours black with nice creamy head that hangs around until the end. This is made with sweet potatoes and a bit of milk lactose. I cant say that I taste either but this is one smooth stout.

Draught. Beautiful, almost black color. Nice off-white head that goes the distance. Just slightly thin mouth feel for a stout. This is one fine stout. Great taste of roasted malt. After the Blue Heron, this is my favorite of the Lazy Magnolia beers I have tried. If you can get this where you live, count yourself lucky.
