Had on tap. Black with hints of brown when held up to light, with a mocha head. S'more aromas: marshmallow creme, milk chocolate, graham cracker, and general creme. Taste is very sweet but doesn't get to cloying, marshmallow is huge but vanilla laden, with chocolate and graham cracker being folded in by fudgy waves. Thick, chewy, sticky, and viscous feel, no booziness at all, but very sweet. The wife liked it

Tasted in a snifter from draft at More Brewing Co on February 29, 2020. Imperial stout brewed with chocolate, graham cracker and vanilla. Nice balance of flavors.

Thickest beer I've ever had. Definitely getting s'mores on the nose. Initially sweet, then chocolate and vanilla come out, and finally some roast. Consumed from a glass after being poured from a bottle, which my brother was very kind enough to pick up for me.

Geez these are insanely consistent. Only Henna base beers have this nose that already indicates how creamy and silky the mouthfeel will be. Yeah on the nose you get that. With absolutely no disappointment to follow, taste amazing starting with graham crackers up front with some vanilla and huge chocolate finish on the finish. Just a tad short of S'more Luv but this is fantastic.

Good feel but not as thick as some of the RAM stouts I had. Heavy Hershey's chocolate flavor, almost no vanilla (even when warm) and no graham cracker. Good beer but so far I've had b2 and b3 and neither live up to the RAM stouts.

Great thickness per usual. The first sip I got slight s'more flavor. Really good beer. I prefer the other batches of Henna more. Not sure if i'm getting spoiled but this felt kind of safe to me. By all means, it's a top notch dessert stout, but nothing that has me chasing more down.

Released 2/16/18; drank 2/18/18 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a minimal tan head; minimal lace.

Rich vanilla, milk chocolate & graham cracker notes in the nose.

Creamy, medium thick mouthfeel.

Straight up liquid s'more: vanilla, milk chocolate & graham cracker flavors. No booze heat.

A touch sweet, obviously, but they nailed what they were going for. Absolutely delicious.

This was fantastic. My first experience with a really well done S'More stout. Right away you can smell the vanilla. Pours dark and thick with a slight tan head that dissipates into a lingering residue. First sip is marshmallows covered in semi sweet chocolate. I noticed immediately the thick chewy mouthfeel that sticks on the taste buds. As it finishes I get that extra hint of graham cracker that nicely balances out the chocolate. This is one of the best stouts I've had the luck of trying. Very well done.

L: Jet black, slight head.
S: Marshmallow and chocolate, slight graham cracker.
T: Chocolate dominates this beer, as it warmed up the marshmallow and graham came out.
F: Thick as chewy like all the henna batches.
O: Can't wait to get some bottles of this to share with friends.

On draft at More Brewing Co.

Extremely dark appearance with no foam head upon pour. Aromas of chocolate and marshmallows dominate. Flavors are of s'mores that you would make over a camp fire. Loaded with chocolate and marshmallow while cold, the graham crackers become very noticeable as it warms. It's like s'mores turned into a candy bar, turned into a beer. Rich and sweet, with a thick mouthfeel typical of Shaun Bern's adjunct stouts.

If you've tried S'more Luv from Ram-Schaumberg, this is quite similar except with thicker mouthfeel.
