Had this beer on tap at Mugshots on Saturday Night. I've almost made my way through their entire portfolio.
A: beer came in a 22oz mug with a half inch of a fluffy tan head. beer was black as night just like a stout should.
S: smelled like roasted malts with a little bit of sweetness. Nothing out of the ordinary and not very robust aromas.
T: slightly bland and watery but inoffensive roast malt flavor with a kiss of chocolate and coffee. Very sweet and lingering aftertaste. This beer vaguely reminds me of Left Hand Milk Stout with the taste but Jefferson Stout has a much sweeter aftertaste. This caused it to loose points because it wasn't something I found desirable.
M: Thin and watery for a stout with typical minimal carbonation that was only apparent from the prickly feeling it left on the swallow.
D: Heavy on the stomach like a typical stout so one was enough to satisfy me.
Overall: Not bad, but not something I'm going to go hunting for on tap since they don't bottle the entire line. It almost made sitting at the bar listening to the obnoxious Bama fans tolerable.
I don't know if it's because I'm used to drinking big beers, the southern style they have or if its the terrible beer laws they are forced to abide by here but most every beer has been fairly lackluster and disappointing.

A- deep deep garnet with a cola rim, thick khaki head. Well defined rings of lacing. The head fades quickly to a thin layer, but it never goes away completely.
S- cocoa, and sweet potato.
T- starts off with smoky cocoa and a light hint of coffee, but the finish is all about the sweet potato. It comes across caramelized, but not too sweet. There's some citrus from the hops as well.
M- lighter than I thought it would be. Irish dry stout light. Almost watery finish.
O- I just wish it had a fuller body...

This was surprisingly smooth. It was very easy to drink and had a lighter body than some of the other milk stouts on the market. As it sits, the taste changes from heavier chocolate tone to a lighter one; and the sweet potato undertone makes its appearance. Would definitely buy this one again!
