Notes/Commercial Description:
S'more Money S'more Problems came out of the brain of Friends With Benefits member Keith Lonergan. With Keith's help we mashed this behemoth in with copious amounts of chocolate malt, roasted barley, golden naked oats and crushed graham crackers. Then, after primary fermentation was finished we added cacao nibs, vanilla bean and natural marshmallow flavor. The resulting beer is a big, chewy, dark nectar reminiscent of our days in Cub Scouts; sitting around the campfire, drinking imperial stouts. Great now or after a prolonged camping trip in the back of your temperature controlled bottle camp site.

A- Pitch black, mocha medium lacing with medium legs. Nice and thick, gums up the glass when swirled around.

S- Nice campfire s'mores taste here. Really great chocolate malty backbone giving tons of body to this thick brew. Marshmallow and graham cracker are noticeable, but not overbearing.

T- Follows the nose to a T here.

M- Nice and thick. Smooth! Minimal carb that totally works with this non-ba stout.

O- I don't usually like Pipeworks, but this one I for sure did!

A - Pours very thick and black. Very minuscule milk chocolate head. Leaves a pretty thick set of legs on the glass.

S - Vanilla, graham, sugar, malts. Smells very sweet, as is expected.

T - Right off the bat I'm impressed with how balanced this drinks. The vanilla is very present, but not overwhelming. Light, dry chocolate. Not picking up the graham in the taste, but this is a very well balanced brew. Not over the top vanilla like Imperial Donut. Very drinkable. No booze is present which is great for a 10 percenter.

From 08/19/14 notes. 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Batch 395-396. Thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one, I loved it.

Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one inch of tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Smells of s'mores straight up...pretty awesome. Lots of graham crackers, sweet whipped cream, marshmallows, and sweet chocolate. Taste has more spice, nutmeg, and dark chocolate to it. Medium body and low carbonation, very easy to drink.

Overall I loved this one; I imagien it is exactly what you would want if you were making a "S'mores" beer. Very interesting and well executed, would love to have it again.
