Bottle. Pours a near black color with a rather huge tan head on it. Nose is roasty and dry, but has none of the characteristics I would associate with a símore in there. Taste is roasty and has a bit of bitter chocolate to it, but thatís it. Good, but a bit underwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alumabottle:   Ashy stout, a little sweet, some graham cracker, mild bitterness.   A bit astringent on the backside, perhaps overly ashy.   Some roasted malts and even a bit of campfire in this one.   Not real big, which doesnít help.   Needs more maltiness to counter the dry bits.   Tiz okay, but leaves me thirsty after each sip.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz aluminum bottle. Aroma is chocolaty, like chocolate milk. Pours inky black with a medium tan head with good retention. Taste is bittersweet and savory with flavors of chocolate, licorice and dark fruit. Not bad but in this sweet stout comparison, I like the Elysian Split Shot I had before this a little more.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Packaging, can, and design is sexy as hell. Beautiful color, excellent head and retention. Opened alongside my buddy Ryan's own s'more stout, which is clearly superior.
Smells like oxidation and a touch of mild roast. Tastes soapy with mild astringency before the malt backbone takes over. Not awful, not good.

Can/bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a dark tan head. Interesting fruity/chocolate aroma. Med body. First impact is confusing, then itís marshmallow, chocolate, smooth burnt stout, followed by dark milky chocolate with is followed by something like banana. Itís much more dry than sweet. But compared to somethings itís not very dry. Really good earthy bitter chocolate finish.

Very hop forward for a sweet stout. Did get lots of marshmellow at the finish but the hop took away from the caramel and chocolate. Closer to a black IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz aluminum bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem.
Handsome looking beer here..black,pitch black body and a lovely thick and creamy tan head.
Aroma quite delicate,chocolate( milky) sweetness resembling marshmallow and toasted malts.
Taste is much the same as the aroma with the addition of strong brewed coffee.
Mouth feel is quite lively for the style and has a great bitter coffee after taste that lasts for ever or so it seems.
Nice winter drink and nice bottle..need to find a top i can use this for a great camping water bottle.
