On tap at Flying Saucer, Nashville. Pours black with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor is quite bitter- lots of roasted bitterness and mild bitter chocolate. Some saltiness like a potato skin. Robust palate. Pretty good stout, actually, although it wasn’t what I expected (I was expecting something sweeter given the name).

Big thanks to jzzbassman for this one! Pours a cola brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, and most definitely some potato starch. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, roasted coffee, fruity sweetness, and nice level of sweet potato. Interesting and pretty nice! jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Tap. Oh, how good this beer could be with a slightly bigger malt bill to make this a thicker body; blame the stupid Mississippi beer laws for that one.. Flavor is really nice, malt and chocolate balanced with a nice hop level to keep it from being sweet, with the sweet potato smoothing out the edges. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a pitch black body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is roasty and sweet with some coffee notes and lactose. The flavor is not overly sweet, just the right balance between the lactose and the roasted malt. Can’t say I would ever even think there was sweet potato in here, but it is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clinginess on the finish from the lactose, light fizzy carbonation. Think I might like to try this on nitro maybe. Pretty nice all in all. One of the better Lazy Mag beers. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Draft at Pizza Joint Evans. Jet black pour with a thin tan head. Scent is roasty, licorice and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee and hops.

Very dark brown pour, brown head. Raisins, prunes, pumpernickel bread, chocolate, coffee and roast in the nose. Flavor leads with dark fruit, lactose sugar, prunes, roasted malt, chocolate. Pretty good stuff. Pershing (567) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Pours black with a decent tan head that stays around for while. Aroma of coffee and dark malts with a coffee taste on the initial drink. I could not detect the Sweet Potato but will try on the another attempt. Slightyly dry finish. nuplastikk (6358) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Tap on Bourbon Street. Thick opaque black with a steady oily beige head. Mellow roasty chocolate aroma. Classic stout, big mossy chocolate tones. Medium to full bodied, quite sessionable. Mild roasty coffee notes. Straightforward, a well done offering. ronaldtheriot (1963) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 9, 2013
Lazy Magnolia Jefferson Stout has a thick, tan head and a dark (almost black) brown appearance, with some reddish highlights at the edges. Only a little lacing is left behind. The aroma is of sweetness, malt, and cream. Taste is similar, with charcoal, coffee, a touch of chocolate, maybe some sweet potato, and a decent amount of underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, yet watery on some ways. Lazy Magnolia Jefferson Stout finishes wet, sweet, and drinkable. Overall, this is excellent. RJT

Pours a dark brown black pour. Nose is sweet chocolate with hints of brine. Taste is sweet with a off vegetable taste. Finish is sweet, slightly lingering with some " off flavors " , presumably the sweet tubers. Decent ! Quaff Score 7 / 10
