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.

Food Pairing - Lindt 90% cocoa. Pretty great in terms of matching bitter for bitter, but the flavors are maybe too similar and became muddled.
A - Opaque black with some dark cherry red around the thinnest edges. Low head, little lacing
S - Inviting, soft, toasted sugar and cream, caramel, faint dark dried fruits
T - Much stronger than hinted at by the smell but not overpowering. Bitter carbon and singed sugar is there indeed. Unfortunately there's no graham cracker to mitigate this, and that ashy taste tends to linger...but if you're into burned marshmallows, hey! Dark fruityness of raisin and plum appear toward the end as well.
M - Rich, slightly syrupy, bitterness packs a punch. All enjoyable.
O - It's rare for beer with gimmicky names to actually deliver, but this one does a pretty decent job of it. Regardless, this is a solid stout by any measure.

22 oz aluminum bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem. $4.99 Handsome looking beer here..black,pitch black body and a lovely thick and creamy tan head. Aroma quite delicate,chocolate( milky) sweetness resembling marshmallow and toasted malts. Taste is much the same as the aroma with the addition of strong brewed coffee. Mouth feel is quite lively for the style and has a great bitter coffee after taste that lasts for ever or so it seems. Nice winter drink and nice bottle..need to find a top i can use this for a great camping water bottle.

22oz (aluminum) bottle poured at fridge temp (41 F) into a pair of pint glasses. If there's a bottled on or best by date, I can't find it. My wife picked it because of the interesting packaging and the word "s'more".
Pours opaque brownish-black with a big, long lasting head light brown head. Smell is yeasty, chocolatey. Kind of bland.
Taste is bitter. Lots of coffee flavor. Some hint of the chocolate from the smell.
Mouthfeel is thickish and a little gritty. Overall, not bad.
