Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnoliaís original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnoliaís version of the ideal Southern-Style Stout.

The sweet potatoes provide the background to an impressive taste with added notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors.

Bottle: Pours black with a thick brown head. Sweet potato, coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste is creamy, roast chocolate and coffee. Not a lot of sweet potato, just enough to impart a light, earthy sweetness. Pretty tasty.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Poured from a party pig into a Lazy Magnolia pint glass. Pours dark brown with only the slightest amount of light showing through the edges. The head was a massive light mocha which lingers as a cap and leaves good lacing. The aroma is fairly mild and dominated by dark roasted malts and lactose. There is also some sweet sugary notes that might be attributable to the sweet potatoes. The taste is even sweeter than the aroma suggests with some chocolate, brown sugar and sweet potatoes. There is still some roasted malts in the background but this a very sweet stout. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation. This is an extremely drinkable stout and one of the better sessionable stouts I’ve had in a while. I’m glad I had the opportunity to pick this up, and it is, without a doubt, the best beer I’ve had from my home state of Mississippi.

Draft sample at the Free the Hops 2009 Blastoff Party. Black in the glass with a tan head that had some lasting a light lace. Roasty malt aroma with milk chocolate undertones. The flavor also found roast and chocolate with some coffee. Medium body with a coffee aftertaste. Tasty!

1/2 pint at Trappeze Pub. This is rather dark with a decent head. The aroma is sweet with lots of chocolate and caramel with a nuttiness. I didnít really get any sweet potato until I took a few sips. Itís kind of mild but provides a smoothness, for lack of a better word. Itís a pretty sweet beer with plenty of chocolatey flavor, but not over the top. This is one of the better things Iíve had from Lazy Magnolia.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malty aroma, with coffee and sweet malts. The flavor has hard roasted malts, coffee, and a light nutty sweetness. Pretty good.

Draught. This is a nice smooth stout that goes down well as an after dinner special.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a light amount of char as well as some heavily roasted malt. There is also a hint of sugary sweetness. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malt, licorice, coffee. Little sweet at first, then turns bitter. Iím not picking up the potatoes, but I like this one.
