Think of a marshmallow, lightly toasted over an open firepit. Just enough where the skin is golden caramel color and slightly crusty, and the inside is gooey but not liquified. Place the marshmallow on a few pieces of a Hershey bar and let it sit so the warmth melts the surface of the chocolate to a slick film. Leave the Graham cracker in the box. Now eat the chocolate and marshmallow.

That's Rochester Mills Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake Stout.

Courtesy of @superspak's BIF box. Canned 2/18/2017. Poured into stout glass. It pours jet black with a finger of foamy, mocha-colored head and lacing that dissipated quickly. It's quite fragrant with a lot of sweet lactose, nuts, and cocoa. The taste has a milky quality, and it does taste like marshmallow but I'm not tasting the chocolate. It finishes with a slight burnt bitterness. For a stout, its body is rather thin, with low carbonation and a virtually invisible 5.2% ABV. This is clearly a novelty beer and it works insofar as its taste resembles marshmallow. This literally is a campfire beer.

Thin black pour yielding a 1/2 finger of head.

Aromas of exactly that. Toasted marshmallows on a stick. Only thing that would complete this aroma would be a faint ash of camp fire. There is some plastic aroma as well...perhaps someone tossed a solo cup in the bonfire.

Flavor is pretty much all plastic, with super glue, some cake with gasoline frosting, and finally a little vanilla roastiness. So many flaws here, they just keep popping up.

Feel is rather thin, slightly roasty.

Overall, I recently brewed a marshmallow porter that was a hair better than this - and it was my 2nd brew ever, from extract too. This is a terrible fail for a professional brewery.

Smells and Taste of pure Dark Chocolate, Invites you in and matches expectations. Really surprised by this one, asked the bartender to pick and she picked the last one i would have chosen, was best beer i had that night.

I picked up a can of Rochester Mills Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake Stout for $2.29 at The Lager Mill. I've tried the last few versions of this beer, so I might as well give this one a try too, lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a tall 16oz can into a snifter.

A- The can looks good, the design goes well with this beer and it's eye catching. It poured a nice black color that didn't really let any light come through and it had a little under a fingers worth of somewhat lighter tan head that died down to a thin ring that eventually faded away and it left some spotty lacing behind. This is a pretty nice looking stout, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of sweetness with a big milk chocolate, cocoa and dark chocolate aromas being the first to show up and it goes right into the marshmallow that imparts an authentic marshmallow like aroma and it's followed by a little bit of doughy yeast that leads into the malts which impart some light dark malt, roasted malt and sweet malt like aroma with more of chocolate syrup aroma sowing up towards the end. This beer has a good aroma, it's robust and lives up to it's name.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma, but it's a little less balanced and it starts off with a higher amount of sweetness with the chocolate aspects still being the first to show up and they are the aspect that sticks out the most about this beer and it imparts all the same aspects. Up next comes the marshmallow which is a little lighter than it was it in the aroma, but it imparts all the same vanilla and marshmallow aspects and it's followed by the malts which impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time they impart more of a roasted malt and grainy aspect. Towards the end comes a little bit of doughy yeast with a little more of those chocolate flavors coming through and on the finish there's pretty much not bitterness with some sweetness taking it's place and it has a sweet, chocolaty and marshmallow like aftertaste. This is a pretty nice tasting beer, the flavors are pretty much just as advertised, but I wish the balance was better.

M- Smooth, slightly crisp, slightly creamy, on the slight thicker side of being medium bodied with a slightly lower amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer

Overall I thought this was a pretty nice beer and solid example of the style, it had pretty much all the aspects that I was looking for and if the balance was a little better than I would have much to complain about. This beer had ok drinkability, one is enough for me, the sweetness would start to wear on me after more than one. What I like the most about this beer is the aroma, it's good, well balanced and it was the highlight of this beer. What I like the least about this beer was the balance, it would be nice if the chocolate was toned down just a little to let more of those marshmallow flavors come through. I might buy this beer again when looking for a dessert beer and I would recommend it to anyone looking for the same. All in all I liked this beer, but I didn't love it and I thought it was just a little rough around the edges, but other than that it still did live up to it's name. It's not a favorite Rochester Mills beer, but it's a solid example of the style. Nice job guys, this is a solid Dessert beer, keep it up.

What a tasty treat! This beer looks, smells and tastes delicious!! More like a s'mores than just toasted marshmallow. I love this brew!
