I was skeptical walking into this one. A S'more Stout? *scoffs* Plus I tend to prefer imperial stouts to traditional ones. It was a recommendation from a BevMo! employee who happens to know my taste in beer very well so I had to trust his opinion.

A: I drank it from the bottle friends, it looks like the freaking picture. I gave them a high mark on this because of the eco-friendly packaging, which happens to be lighter, shatter-proof, fully opaque(prevents UV from harming the beer), and contains a food-grade liner so the metal doesn't effect the flavor.
S: Sweet, malty, caramel, small chocolate.
T: Fucking delicious. I was honestly surprised by how good this beer was. Chocolatey, malty, little bit sweet. These words don't do the balance of this beer justice.
M: With an ABV of 7.7, it truly drinks more like an imperial which was a plus for me. Thicker than your average stout, but not quite syrupy yet. Does not leave a sticky residue on the side of the bottle.
O: Base Camp impressed me. Definitely worth a try by anyone who loves stouts. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Cheers.

Devine simply Devine. The toasted marshmallow made me smile.

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.
