2.82/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

12 oz bottle poured into my lost abbey stemware glass

Pours clear black with an average, creamy tan head, medium retention with good lacing.
Aroma is malty ( toffee, chocolate ) , light hops, and light esters (fruity) with notes of sour milk
Flavor is heavy malt , light chocolate, lactose , light watery coffee , little roasted light hops ,
Not a big succes in my eyes
Medium body, carbonation, and creaminess, medium dry finish.
This isn't a really great beer , to light / soft / watery ,

3.6/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says 08 23 13.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and spotty surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Milk chocolaty dark roast with notes of vanilla and some nuttiness.

T- Moderate dark roast with some chocolate and char on the back end. A bit sweet as well that balances out the bitter roastiness.

M- Moist and a bit sharp from the roast. Medium carbonation and a mostly full body.

O- Not bad but I'd recommend the Jefferson Stout over this.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
