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.

4.03/5  rDev -1.2%

Pours really thick solid black in color with little to no head on a hard pour.

Smell is malt forward, primarily chocolate and cracker malt aromas. Vanilla and a fair amount of smoke are the dominating aromas in the mid section and biggest components of the smell. A very faint grassy hop aroma is in the finish.

Taste is very sweet with chocolate caramel and vanilla flavors forward before a mild earthy bitterness cuts through the middle. More chocolate and a very light almost undetectable amount of smoke in the finish and exhale.

Mouthfeel is thick. Very sticky and little carbonation makes this a sipping beer. Very heavy body that coats the mouth fully and stays well after the swallow

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!

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a brief but substantial khaki head. Thick collar. Wispy surface.

Smell - Marshmallow and dark chocolate. Light spicy aroma.

Taste - Dark chocolate. Lightens up with the marshmallow flavor, which almost lends a fruitiness. Finishes with a kind of artificial sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Seems very sweet but not a very heavy body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Very artificial. Didn't bother me at first, but after a while it was cloying.
