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.

Appearance dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of a stout very little on the node. Taste bitter with coffee overtones lingers on the palate

Fritz123 (922) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip. Very dark, nearly black pour and mostly opaque. Off-white tan head of two fingers. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Taste was rather simple with coffee bitterness, chocolate notes, little dark fruit and a very dry finish. I was expecting a little bit more out of it. Mouth was also pretty carbonated compared to other stouts.

Vestlake (104) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is roasted malt with a little bit of chocolate. I didn’t get much sweet potato in the taste but still a very nice tasting milk stout. I enjoyed this one.

Black pour. Big tan head with some red highlights. A little bit of lacing. A creamy almost squash aroma. Some molasses. Taste is creamy malt and molasses. Not bad.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Vanilla and milk chocolate benefit from roasted edges and earthy potato depths for a nourishing dessert brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the brown-edged black.
-A fruity touch gives the flavour profile a little more complexity.
-The high sweetness and soft prickling of carbonation don’t help drinkability.
-When in the mood for dessert, this is a quality sweet Stout.
-The finish lacks bitterness or spiciness to balance out the sweetness.

Bottle.

2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours black with a fizzy light brown head. Aroma is very roasty with dark chocolate, coffee, and lactose. Taste is lots of dark roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, more tobacco than coffee, not much sweetness. Only a little roasty bitterness. Has a thin-medium mouthfeel, roasted dryness with a little carbonation burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

cmiller54hr (35) - 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
