A lot closer to the Florida-style pastry stout than their other stuff, this starts with sweet cocoa and a little barrel char. Fitting for the setting, this definitely has that hot chocolate marshmallow packet flavor to it, but still that thick yet wonderful pillowy, silky body Kane is known for, with a soft, tingly carbonation finishing semi-dry and slightly sticky. Pretty great, but I prefer the regular and rye ANTEADs personally.

On tap at EBF. This was number one on my list to try at EBF and it ended up being my favorite overall. The ANTEAD base is a can't miss and this new treatment added some very nice flavors that, typical for Kane, were nicely balanced and not overbearing. So well done.

On tap at EBF in Boston, MA.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells like huge globs of marshmallow and vanilla, with chocolate, espresso, fudge and bourbon.

This does really well at evoking the campfire treat in the name. There's a touch of graham cracker, and lots of marshmallow and vanilla. There's some oak spice, and a hint of silky bourbon, plus loads of chocolatey goodness.

This is medium bodied, rich and creamy, with a decent level of drinkability, and no real booziness, which is nice.

This was an easy slam dunk here.

Poured jet black with thin brown head on top. Smelled roasty and sweet. The taste was similar to the taste. The feel was slick robust. Overall a solid varient of the style.
