This should be called the smores beer. It had campfire aroma, with a marshmallow, milk chocolate taste. The smores taste goes away fast. The campfire smokey notes last.
Very solid beer from Stone. Not as dramatic as some of there other brews, but it was nice to sit down to on a cold note. Very warm like a campfire.
Serving type: bottle

Shared pint at the 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle, SC).
The aroma indicates that is over-loaded with vanilla, Tasting confirms this impression. The mix of sweet malts and vanilla compound each other, and the ale would be better if one or the other were reduced a bit. So much vanilla I can barely detect the smoked malt.
Feel: smooth with very good, medium-light carbonation.
O: too much vanilla.
Serving type: on-tap
