COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To triumph over mountain, wave, wind, or boulder, you need a good Base Camp. Your Base Camp helps you rally your adventurous spirit to conquer the next challenge. Cozy up and take a break from your winter trek with our Símore Stout. The Símore 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 chocolatey malt and hints of smoke mingling with rich caramel and dark fruit. We recommend topping it with a roasted marshmallow to enjoy the ultimate Símore Stout experience!

22 oz bottle pour. Pours near black with a lasting foamy head. Strong mocha aroma. A lot of chocolate and roasted coffee bean flavor. This doesnít quite stand out as a símore flavored stout, but tastes good either way. Finishes with a bitter roasted malt and more chocolate. Doesnít stand out as a super good stout, but I enjoyed this. Good stuff.

Tap at barhop, Toronto. Pours a dark cherry brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet vanilla, light coffee, chocolate... Light to medium body, medium carbonation. A touch thin. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate cake, a pleasant dryness which prevents too much sweetness. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At base camp with Steven. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, classic stout aroma. Taste is smooth roasted malt, light sweetness. Not really savory, just still tasty and drinkable for a stout.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown with a big brown head and great lacing. Roasty malty, marshmallows, graham crackers, grassy, bread, and earthy aroma. Taste is toasted bread, light smoke, dark chocolate, grapefruit hops, graham crackers, and vanilla with a roasted bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice stout.

Very very nice. Complex. Starts smoky and with a very rich roastiness, preceded by a surprisingly syrupy pour for the ABV. Slight sweetness in the middle, with a hint of chocolate and, yes, marshmallows. Finishes dry. A+ for all thatís going on here, and it works well.

22 oz unique Base Camp aluminum bottle- Pours black with a one finger tan head that reduces slowly. Aroma is some chocolate, sweet, molasses. The taste is better, I kind of get the smores idea, sweet molasses and chocolate, dry somewhat bitter finish. Not bad.

Sampled at the brewpub - pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has cocoa, vanilla, marshmallow, sweetness and richness, but for what itís going for it works here. It has a medium rich body with light carbonation. The flavor starts off drier with vanilla, roast, slight char, cocoa and some nice burntness. The finish has pleasant roast and lightly burnt, but pleasing malt. Really nice.

Woah. Interesting dip into the stout world here. Definitely gotta give them credit for trying something a bit different. Kinda too much in the candy department to be really awesome. Hope to come across it again to give it a better try.
