I appreciate the effort, but this didn’t work for me. Aroma was ok, roasted stuff and something else - wtf does sweet potato smell like?? taste was odd in middle; someone else stated play doh - that sounds about right - maybe vegetal?? lactose also in taste. NO. beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JAN 13, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Slightly hazy dark brown color with a small mocha head.
Sweet chocolaty nose, with some earthy notes and fresh coffee.
Thin coffee flavors, with dark cocoa, sweet creamer and mild bitterness.
Light-med body, somewhat oily, a bit creamy and overall not rich enough. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:woodychevy (874) - - JAN 4, 2014
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.
Had a bottle with a bowl of soup at five loaves in charleston. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and earth. Mouthfeel is medium but enough for a lunchtime brew. Balance is nice between sweetness of lactose and sweet potato (maybe too subtle) and bitterness of coffee and chocolate. Not much in the way of hops but not bad for a state I don’t think of as a brewing powerhouse. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle labeled "Lazy Magnolia Jeff Stout" from the Beer Of The (Every Other) Month club. Opaque brown hue, sweet aroma of sweet potato and rock candy with some good roasted malt character, flavor of coffee/roasted malt/some sweetness with a little chemical taste distracting from the flavor somewhat. Body is a bit thin for a stout but not bad overall.
Tasted on September 7, 2013.

16 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is malts and chocolate. Sweeter then usual.

12oz bottle pours an inky black with some creamy, beige head. Nose is earthy, bread, malt, dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, bready, chocolate, cola, dirt. Earthy, dry finish. suprchunk (2994) - 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. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2013
im not getting a lot of sweet potato from this one, maybe just a little. its kinda thin and watery too. not super exciting but decent enough. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2013
An unusual aroma - spry, doughy/spicy with just a hint of dark overcast. OK bottle - standard longneck. Poor labeling from a marketing standpoint - not particularly informative, attractive or readable. The beer itself has no residual head much, and is a dark, dark brown-black (as expected.) Oooh - twangy. Very sour up front, almost like a Berliner. Sourness dominates even the roast. Not very bitter. Blind, I would have never guessed that this was a stout - I’d have been very hard pressed to identify it. Pla doh aftertaste. Meh. ABC, Bull Run. Something is wrong with this beer, I will give it another shot on another day.
