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.

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.

Tasting sample - Gulf Brew 2010 - Pours black w/ thick creamy head. Great smell to this brew. Roasted malt, coffee, caramel, smoke.... not much sweet potato to be tasted here (IMO), but sweet and healthy body, mouthfeel. I’d like some again with a dessert such as bread pudding with rum sauce.

Enjoyed on tap at a Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA...the butthole of America. Appearance is pitch black with a rich, robust light tan head, looks decadent. Aroma is very nice and unique, a bit of starchiness to it, light chocolate and cream. Taste is pretty outstanding, has a nice nutty flavor to it with obvious lactose presence, the sweet potato is great as a complimentary ingredient. Finishes a bit dry, moderate body and carbonation. Great stuff, probably won’t have many other brews from this small brewery but I’m enjoying this one for sure.

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Rich, dark brown with a thick creamy head and a strong sweet malt fragrance. Very rich, full taste - roasted malt with some coffee flavor. Very full feel in the mouth - a really filling beer.

Great drinking beer! Served with a thick, creamy, fine tan head and some lace. Color was an opaque brown black. Aroma was chocolate, a bit of coffee, roasted malts. Flavor was like aroma plus nut meats and a great bitter to sweet balance. Body and carbonation were appropriate to style and good. Finish was like flavor and medium in length. Session beer.

JDBaker11058 (1230) - 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.
