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.

ExpendableHero (748) - Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Dark brown, almost black, beer with a tan head. Aroma is mainly of roasted coffee. Tastes of dark coffee, some dark chocolate and earthy bitterness. Bittersweet, coffee finish. Chalky and a bit dry. Not nearly as creamy or lactose sweet as one would expect, where are the sweet potatoes? A bit one dimensional, but this is still a solid brew.

Poobah (264) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Poured with a thick head that dissipated quickly. Opaque and dark brown with a sweet potato, dark chocolate nose. Smooth intro with a mildly carbonated mouthfeel followed by a hint of sweet potato and a New Orleans Roast coffee and chicory finish.

Tap at Avenue Pub pour jet black with beige head. Nose is light chocolate and coffee. Tastes of coffee and coffe ice cream which are different you know. also choclate, reson, maybe a touch of sweet potato though you have to know to look for it. some wood and milk. a touch thin but if you want a session stout then not a bad choice

Westchesterco (866) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
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 (963) - 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 (134) - 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.

suprchunk (2151) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2013
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 (7779) - 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.
