look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a very dark kola hue with a chocolate laden three finger creamy head and lacing everywhere,out of all the brews that I've had that claim it tastes like s'mores this is the closest,the smell starts off with vanilla marshmallows,chocolate sauce,crackers and cocoa very inviting,the mouthfeel is full bodied with above moderate carbonation and the tastes just like smell are heavily s'more influenced with vanilla creamy marshmallows,milky chocolate,peanut butter and finished with cocoa bittersweetness and overall I like this brew it's a great dessert beer but also one of a kind cheers for actually tasting what you say cheers.

Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/23/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roast, graham cracker, dark bread, light coffee, vanilla, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced dark/roasted malt, graham cracker, and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roast, graham cracker, light coffee, dark bread, vanilla, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roast, graham cracker, dark bread, light coffee, vanilla, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, graham cracker, and spice flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good spiced stout. All around well balanced dark/roast malt, graham cracker, and spice flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Color is black--only shows a bit of dark brown near the surface when held up to a bright light. Thin milk chocolate colored head, nice lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, rich toffee, and chocolate, w some vanilla also. Flavor is dark, rick, smokey, with dark-roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, and mildly stated hops. Mouthfeel is medium thin. Overall this is a unique and outstanding stout--a real treat!
