Very exceptional beer, light chocolatey taste at the end. Perfect for cold days, and customers love this beer at my restaurant.

Hey beeradvocate followers, just found thede brew at the local liquor store was intrigue intrigued when i saw the Gabf seal specialty winner 2014&2016 gold seal. Had to give it a go. So
Look: typical blackish brown color subtle kahaki color head that disappated fast.
Aroma: just like the beer described lots of vanilla chocolate and marshmallow sweetness with graham cracker crazy.
Taste : chocolate and vanilla with some graham cracker and that marshmallow sweetness very tasty.
Mouthfeel: ok a bit thin in my opinion needs to be a little chewy.
Overall i give it a 8.5 out of 10 could be even better with a little tweeking Cheers!!!

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.
