Wonderful aroma and solid taste of s'mores. Pour and mouthfeel seems a little thinner than other stouts I'm drinking along with it.

Poured from a 22oz bottle with no best by date; into a pint glass.
Appearance-a deep black with just a touch of mohagany at the bottom of the glass against the light. Carbonation bubbles stream up along the glass and help maintain a medium thick dark beige head. Leaves patchy lacing!
Smell - this literally smells like a s'more, from the graham cracker, to the chocolate, to the marshmallow; amazing!
Taste - is far less s'more and much more dark roast coffee with a touch of cream.
Feel - medium body, creamy and bold; a bit like a piece of rich dark chocolate melting in your mouth!
Overall - this is an incredible beer that just leaves the slightest bit of disappointment after the spectacular s'mores nose fails to deliver that in the taste. Complex, fun beer here.

Nice and roasty but nothing else that really punches through and grabs my taste buds.
