Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnoliaís original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnoliaís 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.

It is a Sweet Potato Cream Stout, AWESOME! Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. 08 may 09. Dark brown pour. Aroma of roast and some coffee. Flavor has a nice roast, odd sweetness, some chicory, and light coffee. Considering it is a beer from Mississippi, this beer is awesome. A+

Growler from my buddy Aaron. Pours black with a thick off white head. Huge coffee, lactose, sweet potato, chocolate and roasted grain aroma. Taste is smooth and creamy with notes of chocolate and roasted grain. Complex, tasty and very sessionable stout.

Tap. Poured a deep black with a two-finger caramel-colored head. Didnít get the sweet potatoes coming through as advertised but did pick up the roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors. Great, typical stout - not too sweet from the lactose but just sweet enough to be very drinkable without losing the classic stout flavor (instead of being a milk stout).

Poured from draft at the avenue pub in New Orleans. Milky and light. Slight but taste. One of the milkier stouts I've had. Very good.

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.

Black pour and dark brown head. Aroma is earthy, roasted malt, a bit sweet. Full bodied. Earthy, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, a bit of black coffee. Not overly heavy or difficult to drink. Really nice stout.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head, one to two fingers. No lacing. The color and the pour are pretty. Well, thereís some lacing as you swish it around.

Aroma is amazing! I smell coffee, but not real strong. I smell chocolate, but not too strong. I smell fresh cream, that is pretty strong. I smell sweet potato, but thatís not real strong. As far as nose goes, this is perfect!!

After al that hype and all that teasing with the aroma, the taste is somewhat of a let down. First off, itís not a very heavy body. Itís thin, and itís somewhat watery. However, I do taste the coffee and the chocolate. The cream is there, but it comes in late. The sweet potato is there, I can taste it, but itís more in the finish and aftertaste. The more I drink, the more pronounced it becomes. But it also has a sweetness, perhaps molassess...? After all that, it needs some body to it.

Mouthfeel is too thin. Needs body, needs some bitterness too it. Itís slightly bitter toward the end. But the sweet potato (yes, I can taste it) sort of takes over. Itís more of sweet potato skin than anything. It could use some work.

Overall, this is my first ever sweet potato beer. I was excited to see it on the shelf. Iím excited to try it. Iíll be excited to try it again...just not this one probably. Not that I donít like it, but I know there are other sweet potato beers out there, and Iíll search them out before I try this one again.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2010 Draft pint from Cooter Brownís. Pours a very dark brown with a tiny tan head. The aroma isnít particularly strong, but has notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and coffee. The flavor is much stronger than the aroma leads you to believe, and is smoky, roast coffee, malts, and burnt toast. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with medium-to-heavy body. Roasty, smoky finish and burnt toast aftertaste. Re-rate: May 21, 2010. I think this must have been too warm at Cooter Brownís when I had it in September, because the sweet potato notes really came through this time. Bartender warned me and a few buddies that it would be an 8-minute pour and she was right. Beautiful dark opaque brown with a cascading brown head. The roasty and smoky notes I remembered mellowed out and were replaced with sweet potato, cream, toasted brown sugar, and just lightly roasted malts. So smooth and sweet, with some dark fruits coming through later and the creaminess growing. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Very nice beer.
