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: 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.

I bought a bottle of Base Camp S'more Stout in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a back walnut color, opaque, with a thin beige head.

Smell is mostly a smoky charcoal aroma.

Taste is a smoky dark fruit flavor up front, with chocolate and hint of bourbon flavor along side, and a bitter charcoal finish.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and cloying, but with a wet character.

Overall a decent stout. A little sweet, and long on the dark fruit and bourbon flavors.

Charred brown with a minimal tan film.

Smell is really roasty and smokey, verging on chocolate covered bacon.

All of that comes through potently in flavor, settling on smoked meats, savory cocoa, and finishing ashy dry. No real marshmallowiness or graham to equate this to a "S'more."

22 oz. aluminum bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black in color. I thought it was flat because it made no sound when I pried the cap off, and it had to pour aggressively to get any head. The little bit of head I managed to generate was mocha colored and left no lacing.

The aroma is dark chocolate and roasted malt. I get no s'mores smell.

The taste begins with bitter, dark chocolate. I get some black coffee and a light smokiness in the finish. One would expect a sweet dessert beer with a name like S'mores Stout.

Full mouthfeel with very little carbonation

I feel that the name is very misleading. There is nothing that resembles s'mores in this beer unless you associate bitter chocolate with your s'mores. I guess the mild smokiness evokes campfire thoughts, but I am bitterly disappointed in this beer. I'm glad I did not pay for it, directly.

Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a wee bit of smoke. No marshmallows that I can detect but the flavours here are right up in my comfort zone.

Near black pour from this cool aluminum bottle.

Awesome packaging. Pours opaque, black in color, with minimal head. Taste is cocoa, dark chocolate and faint vanilla and cracker. Medium bodied, sweet with roasty bitterness. Appears more chocolate stout than s'more stout. Was expecting more given the name. Wow, never thought I would be recommending Saranac, but that is how you do a s'more beer. This pales in comparison. Pass on this.
