BEER INFO

Base Camp Brewing Company
Oregon, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The S'more Stout is an absolute all-star: Aromas of chocolate, coffee, fig, and smoke invite you in to a gigantic maltiness that is distinct in its smooth and refined character, with flavors of chocolate and hints of smoke mingled with rich caramel, fruit, and warming alcohol. Top it with a roasted marshmallow and you have the ultimate S'more experience!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3

L - black body with ruby red edges. Three fingers of off-white head

S - Coffee-forward, some raisins and plums. Thought there would be vanilla/marshmallow in this thing, but nope.

T - Dark roast coffee and dark malts, more of the dark fruits, a touch of smoke. Seriously? Is there no vanilla or marshmallow in a beer called "S'more Stout"?

F - Thick body, feels bigger than it is. No alcohol.

O -Perfectly acceptable for the style. Nothing wild. No marshmallow or vanilla flavor. Not a s'more at all

The beer pours from the 22 oz can a very dark brown with a figer worth of tan head that drops rapidly.

The smell does not deliver a S'mores experience. Rather bland chocolate notes and otherwise typical stout. There is no smoke, coffee or caramel. For a 7-ish percnter beer, seems a little "hot".

The taste is oretty much straight stout, but their is a strange acidity to it that seems out of place. Again, nothing at all to remind me of the namesake. And indeed there is a decnt "burn" given the ABV.

Medium bodied, suitably carbonated for a stout.

Overall, it is a serviceable stout but it does not deliver what the name suggests. Can't really recommend it overall.

A: [2.75] The can lists the ABV (7.2%) and there is a canned date (03/20/2017). Woah... at least 4 fingers of dense nougat head. The beer is dark brown to black.

S: [2.75] Synthetic chocolate, coffee, cocoa nibs,

T: [1.75] Smoked hardwood chips, then the weird synthetic plasticy taste. Awful.

M: [3.50] Smooth and decent body.

O: [2.00] OMG something is wrong. This beer is only 3 months old. Why is there so much head? Why does it smell and taste like burning tires? I poured it out. It was literally offensive to drink.

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a dark brown color with a one finger off white to tan foamy color with a slow dissipation all around. The smell starts off with sweet milk chocolate, light dark chocolate with a good roastiness all around. Light smoke and vanilla ride in on the balance with subtle dark fruits riding in underneath. The taste takes on a mainly sweet persona through the previously mentioned flavors. Dry semi-nutty and caramel to chocolatey aftertaste runs into a dry sweet chocolatey finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good for a sweet stout. Overall, for my first beer by Base Camp, hey, I’d say it was pretty good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: This was an average low lighting situation for me and it appeared to be a deep brown with a white to brown head.
Smell: Chocolate and loads of it! This even seemed more on the milky side of chocolate.
Taste: Sort of an odd taste that reminded me of root beer.
Feeling: A hefty amount of carbonation that was pleasing.
Overall: Enjoyable beer that I wouldn't avoid but also wouldn't aim for it at a package store.

Pours smooth, with little head. Dark but not too thick. fantastic smell. Chocolate and coffee comes through strongly. Taste is excellent. Definitely a stout but some of that Porter smoothness. Overall, a very nice beer.
