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 (1022) - 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 (482) - 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. pojo41 (315) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - APR 30, 2007
Draught. Beautiful, almost black color. Nice off-white head that goes the distance. Just slightly thin mouth feel for a stout. This is one fine stout. Great taste of roasted malt. After the Blue Heron, this is my favorite of the Lazy Magnolia beers I have tried. If you can get this where you live, count yourself lucky.

Tasting sample - Gulf Brew 2010 - Pours black w/ thick creamy head. Great smell to this brew. Roasted malt, coffee, caramel, smoke.... not much sweet potato to be tasted here (IMO), but sweet and healthy body, mouthfeel. I’d like some again with a dessert such as bread pudding with rum sauce. andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at a Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA...the butthole of America. Appearance is pitch black with a rich, robust light tan head, looks decadent. Aroma is very nice and unique, a bit of starchiness to it, light chocolate and cream. Taste is pretty outstanding, has a nice nutty flavor to it with obvious lactose presence, the sweet potato is great as a complimentary ingredient. Finishes a bit dry, moderate body and carbonation. Great stuff, probably won’t have many other brews from this small brewery but I’m enjoying this one for sure. drostj (113) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Rich, dark brown with a thick creamy head and a strong sweet malt fragrance. Very rich, full taste - roasted malt with some coffee flavor. Very full feel in the mouth - a really filling beer. FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Black color with gigantic head with the color and consistency of chocolate mouse. Nose of mocha. Rich flavor with notes of chocolate, coffee, nuts, caramel, honey, and mo lases. Finish of coffee and molasses.
