When we launched BorrachaBaker made us some s'mores shaped like dinosaurs for our launch event. Then, we made an imperial stout with graham flour, marshmallow fluff, vanilla, and cocoa nibs with Amager and West Lakeview Liquors. Then, we brought this beer to the Brewpub Shootout and paired the beer named after the food with a food the beer wasn't named after. People were confused and named it best beer (or was it food?) at the Shootout.

On tap during the Hellshire release. Incredible beer. This is like drinking an oreo cookie stout, but with lots of vanilla and marshmellow as well. The beer comes across as actually fairly light on the palate, but the beer delivers plenty of flavor, and finish is long and chocolate smore filled.

An amazing beer. Would love to be able to have this around on a regular basis. Delicious stuff.

Missing those s'mores flavors to me. Better as it warms.

Interesting marshmallow notes but the rest is just harsh and not cohesive

How much does word-of-mouth and marketing releases affect perception? My go to craft beer store owner very favoribly described the flavors to be found in the beer as well as other marketing sources. Is it a good imperial stout - yes - a great one - no. It does have wonderful light chocolate and dark chocolate flavors, and some vanilla - that one might be persuaded is marshmallow. A sweeter imperial stout that begins to cross the border into dessert beer. Abv exceptionally well hidden.

This beer smells incredible. It also delivers on its name. It tastes like a s'more in a beer. Taste is dark and sweet chocolate, some Bosco, marshmellow, vanilla, and light cracker. Did not like some of the Bosco syrup taste, but overall this was a really good beer. It added something new to the RIS concept and still stayed true to the style. Worth seeking out.

Look: 4.25 - Black but not BLACK black, with a thin, tan head.

Smell: 4.25 - Malt, surprisingly some graham cracker, faint vanilla. Not a very strong scent, but it does actually resemble s'mores. I wish the nose was a little stronger.

Taste: 4.75 - Holy hell that's delicious. WOW! I'm actually really surprised. It tastes like some damn s'mores. There's a fabulous marshmallow, chocolate, graham cracker taste. I actually really love this. Way to go, Dinosmores, way. to. go. I can't even taste the 10.5% alcohol.

Feel: 5 - Feels good. Feels real good to drink smores beer. AND it's super easy-drinking. Such smores. Much dino. Wow.

Overall: 4.5 - I f*****g love this beer. Yes dinosmores. YES!! A!
