I got this in a trade with my local buddy, Sam Knocken, so I am delving into something other than CANs or IPAs as is usually my wont.

From the bottle: "Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnolia's original Sweet Potato Cream Stout and our version of the ideal Sweet Southern Stout, is brewed with roasted Southern-grown sweet potatoes and lactose (milk sugar). The sweet potatoes provide the background to an impressive taste with added notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors."; "If you're pondering something tasty to pair with Jefferson Stout we suggest raw oysters, ice cream or chocolate cake."; "Malt beverage brewed with sweet potatoes and lactose."; "The ideal sweet southern stout".

Man, but the pour seemed to create a faux cascade, no matter how gently I poured, especially since it threatened to overflow the glass. I got two fingers of dense, foamy, deep-tan head with good retention as a result. Color was an inky deep brown, allowing no light penetration (SRM = 44). Mouthfeel was full, creamy, rich with dark chocolate, smoke, charcoal and a general roastiness. Finish lingered with a smoky chocolatiness. It was not totally sweet, per se, but it was definitely a stout. It was an interesting diversion on a Sunday afternoon.

A: Dark. Black almost. Made a brown bottle look very light as I poured into a pint glass. Little to no head with minimal lacing.

S: Smells like a cream stout. Similar to a guiness in smell. Malt. Wheat. Lightness.

T: Burnt Coffee. Malt. Cinnamon. Alcohol.

M: Light on the tongue. After taste is more alcoholic and has a sense of metal. Similar to other Lazy Magnolia brews in that sense.

O: Wow. I like a lot of Lazy Mag. beers. This one comes in as my new go to when it comes to marinades. I can tell it will make a hell of a marinade like the sweet pecan does. As for drinking... it is too dark to gulp, and too light to really sip. Its a good in-between-er. Oddly enough, I taste no sweet potatoes.
