Pour is dark cola color with a caramel colored head. Nose is heavy fusel alcohol, plastic, stale graham cracker, faint hints of dark malt. Flavor is burnt, bitter, plastic, fusel alcohol burn in the back, some fudgy malt but watered down, thin bodied, bitterness lingers.

Love the aluminum bottle. Doesn't taste like snores but delicious none the less. Really enjoyed this one. Light bodied, but still flavorful. Strong chocolate flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown body, brown head, some retention, some lacing. Roasty malts, vanilla, and marshmallow aroma, warm, but overall a bit too faint. Taste is semi-sweet, with a medicinal roasty bitter aftertaste. Overall, not completely successful but enjoyable nevertheless.

Sampled at GABF 2015 with Andrew, Mel and Frank. Pours a deep brown body with tan lacing. Aroma is burnt roast. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of alcohol and roast. Despite being served along side freshly toasted marshmellows via blow torch at GABF, the beer was super underwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle/can from Liquor Outlet. Very dark in color. Pitch black in my goblet. Slick looking with low foam. Very dry roasted coffee nose. Roasted coffee up front with a little bit of sweetness. Very roasty with an interesting sweet note in the backend. Pretty rich and tasty. Not sure about the smores, but a tasty stout regardless.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Not very strong but subtle hits on chocolate, fruit smell, jet black color, light carbo, the taste is shocking in that it is very bitter, I mean I was expecting sweet marshmallows, but I got bitter. I must have gotten a bad batch, this was not what I expected. Will try another batch, not good at all.

Well this one is different with notes of chocolate covered figs, meaty smoke, woody earthiness, charred mallows and hazelnut coffee. Sharp yet ashy mouthfeel with just a bit of warming booze. Sort of digging the nuances but the whole package make me consider this a one and done.

September 11, 2015 - bottle from AV3. Black pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was roasted malt, chocolate and some smoke. Taste was dominated by the roast with a bit of sweetness, coffee and smoke that leaves a bitter finish.
