473 ml can served at cellar temperature into a pint glass. Beer 4 of 6 from this mixed pack.

Appearance - very dark chestnut brown with two fingers of light tan head that fizzle off inside two minutes. Minimal lacing.

Smell- marshmallow, graham cracker and some milk chocolate. Very sweet with no other discernible aromas. Quite intense.

Taste - not as robust as the aroma. Hints of dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, marshmallow and subtle caramel as well as a very solid graham cracker base.

Mouthfeel - thin and a bit watery, but also slick. Carbonation is pretty low.

Overall - another gimmicky flavoured stout, this is probably the easiest to drink and least gimmicky of the bunch as the graham crackery bits do bring some balance to this brew. Quite good for what it is.

Dark walnut brew with a big head that settles to nothing pretty quickly. Nose reminds me of a coffee liqueur. A sweet stout with lots of chocolate and coffee flavours happening. The marshmallows lend a lot of roastiness and sweetness but don't stand out by themselves. Makes for a decent beer overall, not as hard edged as some other stouts, and probably for the dessert minded. A better rendition than the chocolate cheesecake version.

Pours a brown black in color with a nice thumb and a half of off white head. Breaks rather quick, but leaves a nice cap and collar. Sparse lacing.

Smell is really quite nice. A big burst of vanilla, along with a touch of coconut. Then comes the chocolate, nice and bitter. Some roasts are also there.

Taste follows the nose nicely,however I find the vanilla is tamed a bit. The cocoa is really nice though. These two flavors work well together.

The feel is a little light, which is a bit of downer for this beer. The carbonation is good and the vanilla and chocolate linger on.

Quite a nice dessert beer. I will it was a little fuller, but that is my only real complaint. Worth a try, especially after a meal on a cool night.

just an absolutely amazing stout. Its so sweet and aromatic, like smelling a roomful of fresh coffee in a boutique. The flavor is almost exactly like the smell, sweet, sweet toasted malts and 'the way coffee smells' but as a taste. Thin head, which is very sweet and disappears quickly. All in all this is a fantastic experience, and I'd say its almost worth making the drive back north.

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.
