Nice rich roasted flavor with creamy inish to the palate. Rice chocolate dark color a nutty aroma and a medium betterness to the taste mmurray (3) - Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi, USA - JUN 25, 2006 does not count
Rich, full flavored with a slight bitterness. Great Sweet Potato finish. Not as thick as my favorite stout, Guinness but a nice niche with the sweet potatoes...
My favorite way to drink it?
Here in hancock County we make a drink called Prailines ’n Cream. It’s Southern Pecan and Jefferson Stout in a Black and Tan Fashion... Great with the combination of sweet potatoes and pecans... both flavors are truely southern... mtrain237 (12) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Another great selection by this brewery. No heavy flavor or taste. This beer is full of nice subtleties. The sweet potato is a great addition. I recommend this to anyone likes a great stout or someone who isnt too sure about dark heavy beers. This one is easy drinking and lighter than most stouts. tio (7) - Vicksburg, Mississippi, USA - MAY 29, 2011 does not count
The sweet potatoes is not very pronounced, but it is one of the best sweet stouts I’ve had. Has all the roasted flavors I like in a beer. MorganBaughman (147) - Long Beach, Mississippi, USA - JUL 15, 2012
This has got to be my favorite dark beer. I love the idea of having sweet potatoes as an ingredient. When we tried the unfiltered version of this beer, we found it had layers of flavor and surprisingly finished with a Thin Mint taste! Rob, unfortunately, is not a fan of dark beers, and he said the filtered version "tastes like a cigarette" to him. Every time someone pours him a bit of Jefferson Stout, he pours it into my glass when no one is looking, which is fine by me. :o)

Pours dark brown with a nice, light brown head. Smells of roasted malt, some molasses, spicy. Tastes roasty and chocolatey with a nice, full bodied finish. Cybercat (5740) - Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours a beautiful sable with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast coffee and molasses as well as burnt malt. Flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate tones with a hint of smoky wood. Full-bodied texture has some good fizz. Didn’t get any sweet potato or milk notes, but it is still a tasty and enjoyable stout. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Great stout. Kind of sweet to taste and just a smooth feel. Pours very dark with an espresso colored head. Good head but little lacing. Great overall stout. pharmassist (17) - Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Part of beer of the month club. Smells of dark nuts, coffee and cocoa. Taste is similar and very good. I do love a good stout and this one delivers. Made with sweet potatoes there is definitely a sweet finish to this one. I would definitely drink this again. biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - SEP 8, 2006
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 I’ve had all but one of the Lazy Magnolia brews and this is probably my favorite. Pours black with nice creamy head that hangs around until the end. This is made with sweet potatoes and a bit of milk lactose. I cant say that I taste either but this is one smooth stout.
