Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is solid black, nitro presents a head that is super dense and tan in color, initial depth of 1/4 of inch, then lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is big graham cracker, more limited chocolate and roasted malt, some vanilla, no marshmallow.

Taste again big graham cracker, a bit more chocolate and roasted malt than aroma, some vanilla, background thick sweetness that is not really marshmallow but kind of viscous and sweet like dark chocolate syrup.

Mouthfeel is low carbonation/smooth nitro, moderate/strong sweetness, low bitterness and low boozy drying.

Overall a big chocolate-graham cracker beer - I don't get the marshmallow aroma/flavor but i do get some vanilla.

Black body with a long lasting, thick & creamy tan head. It smells like Twinkies, the junk food snack that supposedly lasts forever. Slightly sweet. Flavor: it does taste like a s’more, lots of vanilla, with milk chocolate, Graham cracker, marshmallows & malt. The nitro makes a massive contribution to it creamy feel although it’s feels thinner than expected. The mouth didn’t detect any alcohol but the stomach did. Overall, a great pastry stout.

Served in a twku glass from 9.6oz can.

Appearance: Medium bubbles creating a somewhat thick tan head rising three quarters of an inch off the body.

Smell: Sweet vanilla aroma which hovers the nostrils and feels like I'm breathing in a mocha infused yellow cake.

Taste: The taste granted not bad, a pastry nitro stout which has an artificial feel to it...reminds me of the dragons milk series. It's sweet with chocolate vanilla and barely any marshmallow note.

Mouth: has a very soft carbonation and it's ridiculously sticky but overly sweet in my opinion. The sweet finish might be intriguing to some but has a flat feel and seems almost like an artificial sugar was used.

Overall: for the price of the brew it was worth it but considering they are better pastry imperial stouts out there. Salud!

Nitro poured, so the head is amazing (that's what she said) and sticks around forever. Definite notes of cocoa and vanilla. High ABV, but the alcohol is not front or back. This one could sneak up on you. The graham cracker is very light, but adds to the sweetness. This is a definite sipper. Served at about 50 degrees in a tulip glass.

12/3/21 Bacon, Bourbon and Beer on tap.

Beautiful thick tan head. Dark dark dark

Smell is certainly graham cracker, vanilla and chocolate

Taste is exactly like the nose. Very sweet, obviously. Certainly an excellent sipper!

Appearance:
A starry night in a glass: jet black with tiny, diamond-like bubbles, dimly visible within. The head is a flawlessly compact, beige horizon; being a nitro, its retention is eternal and it laces like heavy cream.

Bouquet:
Like snapping a big, thick graham cracker in half and taking a whiff. Beyond this grand vanguard of graham are milky marshmallows and traces of hot cocoa mix.

Feel:
Full of body and low of carbonation. Has a luscious backend of uniquely spongy, marshmallow give.

Taste:
Bitter stout malts mingled with graham cracker dryness, followed closely by an overflowing tablespoon of deeply chocolatey syrup. Unfurled above it all like a hot air balloon is marshmallow; but it’s so thoroughly air-puffed that its presence is stretched to subtlety and its sugars are suitably redacted.

Overall:
Uncomplicated, bittersweet, and exactly as advertised. More beer than dessert but it’s still a dessert beer.

9.6 FL. OZ. can
Served in an imperial nonic pint glass

This beer pours black and is topped with a couple inches of tightly bubbled, tan head that leaves little head.

They do a good job of replicating the vanilla, chocolate, and graham cracker aroma. It is on the sweet side of aromas.

Chocolate and vanilla flavor right off the bat. The chocolate carries throughout the taste. I don't get much of the graham cracker that I smelled. Lots of chocolate and vanilla though.

Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel

It is pretty good.

Very surprised to see this has a 95. Honestly something about this smells and tastes like a peanut butter milk stout. I didn't get much s'mores here which was the most disappointing part. A decent beer but doesn't hit the spot for s'mores.

Pours dark brown with creamy tan foam. Chocolate aroma. Rich chocolate marshmallow body. Bitter roasted malt finish. Very smooth. You can taste the alcohol. Excellent as always. I wouldn't have too many of these s'mores or you might fall in the fire.

Poured from a tap into pint glass in October 2021.

Appearance: Very dark black with a thin dark brown head. Head was about 1 finger high, and lasted a minute. It leaves only a little lacing on the glass, and ended with a thin tan head still on the beer.

Smell: Aroma of chocolate and some roasted grain. There is also some caramel and a little coffee, but overall the chocolate dominate the others.

Taste: There is pronounced chocolate flavor as well as some smokie roasted flavors. Also some coffee and a little amount of bitter hop flavors to enhance the taste. There is a strong alcohol presence, which matches the 10% on the label.

Mouth-feel: Full with a smooth body.

This is a good Stout, and I enjoyed the mix of chocolate and other flavors. It is very smooth and enjoyable to drink.

Pours a deep dark brown to black color with well over a finger of head. The nose has chocolate notes but the graham cracker essence is both out front and outstanding. The flavor is nicely chocolatey with hints of crackers. But, I was disappointed that a real hearty roast was absent in this offering.

I love creamy beers. I love chocolate. This hits both spots! Eruption of chocolate aroma on opening, more vanilla hints as you pour. Head swirls at first, then builds. I love when each note stands on its own, and this does that- the toasted graham cracker, the choc, the vanilla and the alcohol all take their turns. A dangerously good high-power beer.

A s’mores beer throughout with a heavy dose of alcohol, which is hidden well. Overall, another favorite desert beer from southern tier.

Pours a standard black with two fingers of beige nitro foam. One of the most aromatic and best smelling beers I have ever encountered. Pungent aroma of graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla. Taste follows the nose. It is a bit sweet, and I don’t personally like milk stouts very much, and I avoid nitros like the plague, and yet I am still enjoying this concoction. Has a bit of roasted malts and bitter hops on the finish. Overall the best use of graham cracker I can remember, and much better than I expected.

12 oz can, canned 4/11/19. Pours dark black with a huge creamy tan cascading nitro head.

The aroma is sweet chocolate and graham cracker with lactose and vanilla and a bit of balancing roast coffee and a only a hint of nitro.

The flavor is a bit more muted and washed out by the nitro - sweet vanilla and chocolate with a big, slightly harsh, heavy bitter roast finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit thin like most nitro beers.

Overall, it smells great, but the flavors aren't well blended and get muddled by the nitro.

12 oz can with an April 2019 canning date stamp on the bottom. $3.59

Pours foamy, with more has released upon popping the tan than usual, but soon settled to a near black body with a very durable and creamy beige head.
Enticing aroma with notes of vanilla, chocolate and roasted nuts.
As expected, especially given the brewer, this is quite sweet. The sweetness, however, fits with the other aspects of the flavor profile and is countered by some hop bitterness in the finish.
Creamy smooth feel with soft nitro carbonation, but it seems a touch thinner than optimal.

Quite possibly the best dessert beer I have had to date...

Isn't it fun to pour a nitro? Yes it is, and this one is not only fun but delicious as well. What I take away from this beer are three things: One, the beautiful blackness of the brew with its creamy, frothy, nitro-infused head; two, the smell is absolutely delicious and sweet - full of chocolate, malt, with a hint of a boozy background; three, (well kinda three and four) the mouthfeel is creamy at first though becomes a bit watered down as it warms, but the taste is superb - the chocolate notes, caramel, even some dark roast - all of it hiding the 10% ABV. You gotta be careful with this one, you'll want to guzzle it but it will hit you hard in return.
