Poured from 22oz aluminum bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown, nearly black; head is a finger of frothy tan foam with a moderate retention. Not bad.

Smell: relatively rich and rather chocolatey, with some alcoholic strength. Not particularly s'morey, except for the chocolate, but still a pretty good-smelling beer.

Taste: chocolate and roastiness. Bizarrely enough, I'm also definitely getting a toasted-marshmallow flavor. Unfortunately, there's also an unwelcome chemical flavor; whether that's a byproduct of fermentation or has something to do with how the do the marshmallows, I'm not sure. It's not terrible, but I probably won't go after this one again.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge carbonation and massive, mouth-filling creaminess. Spectacular.

Overall: I don't know if I've ever had a beer with such disparity between flavor and texture. It has its redeeming qualities, but that weird chemical taste, while mild, is just too much for me.

Not bad at all. Tastes primarily like a decent stout: I thought the s'more taste might be overwhelming, but in fact it's the reverse: very subtle, barely present.

Flavor is solidly decent, very competently made, no off notes. A little lighter on the body/mouthfeel than I like for a stout. Finish is a bit short, light.

The can/bottle/container is awesome.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery. They toast a marshmallow on the glass and it is AMAZING. Bottle may be different, but on tap this is a great offering from a tiny brewer.

Appearance is standard but the presentation is incredible.

Taste is exactly like a campfire.

Feel is a great olfactory and taste experience. If you have the opportunity I suggest it

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and marshmallow aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and slight smoke flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with solid aromas. but the bitterness in the taste is a bit too much in my opinion.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.

A- Poured black with off-white fluffy head that left webbed lace.

S- Chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla, roasted malt, and some smokiness.

T- Chocolate, roasted malt, marshmallow, vanilla, and a hint of smoke.

M- Medium body, smooth, soft carbonation, and dry.

O- A nice sweet stout with those s'more flavors that were advertised. The roasted malt and hint of smoke kept the sweetness in check and this was a very drinkable stout.
