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. NachlamSie (3597) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2011

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 didn’t really get any sweet potato until I took a few sips. It’s kind of mild but provides a smoothness, for lack of a better word. It’s a pretty sweet beer with plenty of chocolatey flavor, but not over the top. This is one of the better things I’ve 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. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - FEB 1, 2013
Draught. This is a nice smooth stout that goes down well as an after dinner special. Mora2000 (6158) - 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.

black color, aroma of coffee, chocolate, graham crackers, same flavors, getting a little sweet potato, and slight lactose, not to creamy, rather chalky, but very seasonable and lots of flavor for the low abv Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malt, licorice, coffee. Little sweet at first, then turns bitter. I’m not picking up the potatoes, but I like this one. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle... Poured black with a moderate head. Malted tones, some roast, and a hint of sweet potato on the nose. It was nice. Nothing too crazy or special about this one. But a nice drinking beer none the less. Some hints of light cocoa and lactose. Sort of reminded me of that dish with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Some roast and toasted sugars/malts. Certainly a stout worth trying. kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting in Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. As Jeff Stout. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted yam and slightly chocolatey aroma, a little smoky bitterness in the mouth, along with vegetables esp. sweet potatoes. Body’s a bit too light, aftertaste that reminds me of the liquid that comes out of oven-roasted sweet potatoes and mild carbonation.
