4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle with James and Dad. Pitch black with a decent tan head. Huge sugary aroma, molasses, toffee, roast malt. Flavour is deeply sweet, chocolate, some roast malt, vanilla. It leaves a rather sugary impression with only a little bitterness. It’s kind of smoky and increasingly toward the caramel side of the sweet spectrum--I love it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Very black with brownish-golden head. Sweet, some raspberry, some chocolate and then phenol in the nose. Sweetish taste, then bitter, then a little petroleum-like in the mouth. Smooth, full-bodied, long, a little sweet, like chocolate cake with raspberry sauce finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep black chocolate malt with some marshmallow notes clearly identifiable. Taste is also dominated by deep black chocolates notes with lactose which offset most of the roasted malt notes and some marshmallow. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. This beer is a novelty for sure but quite enjoyable nonetheless and as close as smores as you will find.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours pitch black with small tan head. Nose is dark fruits, sweet vanilla, chocolate and a definite marshmallow type smell. Taste follows the aroma. Can pick up a marshmallow like toastiness to it. Nice a sweet from the vanilla and chocolate but not overpowering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with an oily dark tan head. Nose is full of sweet vanilla and heavy milk chocolate with mild toasted marshmallow and some raisin. Dark fruits are definitely prominent but the milk chocolate and vanilla steal the show. Superb balance for such a big beer. Much better as it warms, the sweetness is never over the top as could be expected. Nice toasty marshmallow note with mild spice. Very good
