3.31/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a thick black liquid with a 1 finger coffee color foam head.

Smell: Whiffs of coffee and roasted malt and licorice.

Taste: This is interesting. On the front end the beer has a very coffee forward taste. Very sweet, very easy to drink. The back end is more "vegetably" which I suppose is due to the sweet potatoes. This makes it difficult to continue drinking, although the mouthfeel is very nice. Coffee, Sweet potatoes, roasted malt, honey, chocolate, and "gamey" notes.

Mouthfeel: It is very silky and very light for a stout. The viscous appearance is not at all seen in the mouthfeel. However i feel that that helps this beer because the vegetable aftertaste is tough to get down for me, but that is just a personal preference.

Overall: This beer is just ok. The vegetable added to a stout may just not be my style. Recommended for outdoor barbecues or get togethers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you to shan8454 for this beer in trade.

Appearance: Black, no light will shine through this one. No head or lacong on this one.

Smell: Faint malts and coffee.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth full bodied. Taste of faint alcohol, coffee, malts, and some starches.

Overall: This was an OK brew, not my favorite.

3.34/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - milky black with a dark brown head, pretty.

Smell - Cinnamon and roasted malts. Smell reminded me of thanksgiving sweet potatoes, you know with the layer of marshmallows on top.

Taste - Initial chocolate flavor, moderately sweet but the finish is a subtle earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - A short lightly creamy finish but all the flavor vanishes away with the liquid.

Overall - The beer is worth trying simply due to the novelty of a sweet potato stout. The beer smells fantastic but the taste/flavor was lacking. The brown head of the beer makes it look like it's going to pack some flavor (think Old Rasputin) but it simply doesn't.

Serving type: on-tap

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 and worth searching out.
