look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bomber poured into a snifter. The brew pours black in color with 3 fingers of frothy khaki topping. It leaves a full webby pattern of lace on the glass as it slowly fades.

The aroma is burnt and roasty like charcoal and tobacco. Plenty of bitter bakers cocoa and earth. Lots of herbal hops overtop a fusel to solvent alcohol character. A bit of sulfur emerges when swirled.

The flavor is bitter roast and earth with a highlight of slight citrus to lighten things up. An abundance of bitter bakers chocolate with solvent alcohol seemingly numbing the palate. This is overly roasted espresso, tobacco and char into the aftertaste. It displays the most faint suggestion of milk chocolate.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A little rough around the edges and overall a brew that really doesnt display any of the advertised adjuncts. It quite honestly is not that enjoyable. I admittedly purchased 2 bombers of this when I saw it at a local shop. Upon opening the first one, I was disgusted and drain-poured it because more than a third of the bottle was filled with a slimy sludge mess that I have never witnessed in a beer before. I thought it might have been the advertised "marshmallow fluff" but wow it tasted horrible. I would approach this purchase with caution.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

This beer didn't deliver quite as much as the Smorter I had from Equinox. Looked fine, dark brown-black pour with a small beige head that receded to a ringlet. Smell of roasty dark malts, sweet, with a bit of chocolate in the mix. Taste is notably roasty, ashen, some sweetness, light notes of cocoa, and a bit of burnt marshmallow coming through in the finish. Mouthfeel was on the thinner side for a stout, about medium-bodied, low carbonation and well-hidden alcohol. Not too bad, but a little too burny, and kind of missed the mark overall.

Draft at The Perch Pub in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours pitch black with a one finger beige head that slowly fades into a lasting ring.  Sporadic streaks of lace left behind.

Slightly roasted dark makt aroma with silky chocolate, toffee and roasted oats.  There's a subtle marshmallow presence but I'm not picking up any of the graham cracker.  Doesn't really smell like a s'mores, more like a regular sweet stout.

Medium bodied but thinner than expected for the style with a balance of roasted and sweeter malt notes.  Dry and slightly smokey up front countered by boozy sweetness, dark chocolate and caramel.  Not much marshmallow fluff but there's a very subtle grainy graham cracker presence. After a while the sweetness overwhelms making it a bit one dimensional.  The ABV is well masked making it easy to drink but it's lacking complexity and could be a bit more viscous/full-bodied.  Overall it's a decent sweet stout, but it doesn't really smell or taste like s'mores.
