Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep black chocolate malt with some marshmallow notes clearly identifiable. Taste is also dominated by deep black chocolates notes with lactose which offset most of the roasted malt notes and some marshmallow. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. This beer is a novelty for sure but quite enjoyable nonetheless and as close as smores as you will find.

500ml brown bottle purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.

Pours a fairly light-weight brown colour, with clarity at the edges and some fine streams of carbonation. Top forms a pretty pocked, loose head of large bubbles with a little orange-chocolate coloured film. Some small leopard-spots of lace around the edges. It looks okay, but certainly not the big thick stout I was expecting.

Nose is also certainly muted. Mild, dusty coffee and toast notes come through—rather pleasantly, no doubt—but without a great deal of depth or complexity to it. As it warms there's a slightly spicy or pepper note to the brew and perhaps a slight rounded sweetness that could be marshmallows—I'm almost certainly projecting my desire for it on the beer though.

Taste is a little better, because here there is genuine richness and slickness, even if it may just be from the extra booze. Pleasant prickly alcohol notes give a tingle on the back that accentuates some of those spicier characters, while the rich stouty sweetness provides the meat around the edges. Again, marshmallow is only phantasmic, giving a slight aromatic hint towards the back of the palate, although this time I believe it's actually there. Feel is good—smooth and slick with a surprising lightness that comes through once the alcohol kicks in. This means it never gets to real heat or boozy burn territory.

Overall, it's a pretty good beer, but it's not nearly as interesting as it's made out to be. I still have a hard time convincing myself that I'm actually tasting anything other than a decent impy stout and not imagining the other characters. As far as the concept goes, High Water's Campfire Stout is much better.

The base brew of this beer is Hr Frederiksen and it's a collaboration with Off Color Brewing and is a play on the American campfire favourite s'mores and has some very unique ingredients added such as vanilla beans,marshmallows,graham crackers and cocoa beans and yeah looking forward to this one which pours a dark black hue with a creamy two finger head and a nice rim of lacing,the smell is booze,vanilla beans,caramel,milky chocolate and French vanilla roasted malts,the feel is full bodied,a touch creamy and silky smooth and has tastes of sweet French vanilla,chewy caramel,milky chocolate cake,roasted malts and finished with a creamy bittersweetness and overall it's quite sweet but also balanced and definately something that would age cheers.
