Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnolia's original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnolia's version of the ideal Southern-Style Stout.

A-black, thin light tan head

S-surprisingly i'm not picking up not much more than a light hint of sweet potato, and possibly some cream. very very unique for stout

T-I'm getting some coffee notes with a sweet potato after-taste but more than anything this beer is just watery. it is absolutely a terrible stout. I'm not sure what kind of beer you're wanting to drink if you enjoy this. If you're expecting a stout or anything that resembles one, this beer will disappoint you.

M-I don't think there is actually any carbonation. It goes down more like orange juice.

D-not drinkable whatsoever. only my respect for beer kept me from spilling this down the drain.

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.

Arrives black with a tan head that dissipates quickly but looked creamy. Left very little lacing.
Smell is malty, caramel and coffee though quite weak throughout. I really had to search to find this much.
Taste is much better, a decent balance of malt, coffee and caramel.
Medium bodied with a light effervescence. Overall, a middle-of-the-road kind of brew. Given the other reviews, I hope that this one might just have been off a bit. I will look for others from this brewer in hopes they are better.
