Blck, big frothy brown head. Smells like...Chocolate vanilla and graham cracker, big surprise. Taste is also a Símore, but maybe a símore with a cup of coffee.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Hop N Bean in Sisters, OR. Pours a full haze deep black. Webby mocha foam. Nose is salty, caramel, weak grassy hops, heavier roast and chocolate cake. Taste is thicker chocolate, grassy hop balance, big bitter cocoa. Palate is superlative with thick chocolate but a big hop balance. Almost Black IPA given the hop forwardness. Not a sticky sweet stout at all.

On tap at the brewpub. Possibly the first and last beer Iíll drink with a marshmallow on the side. Deep black shade with a thin light brown head. Creamy aroma, just like the marshmallow, or is that contributing to it? Taste is sweet with roasted malt and caramel. Decent stout.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Base Camp, Portland, OR on 1 June 2013.
Poured a black with a thin brown head and a little tasted marshmallow on the glass rim. Aroma of strong vanilla, milk chocolate and marshmallows. Initial flavour has some roasted malt and bitter coffee with caramel. However supercharged sweetness comes knocking pretty soon after and itís Hershey bars, sugar and cappuccino... Not my bag at all, just canít abide sweet stouts.

Solid black with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, oak, coffee, smoke. Slick mouthfeel, smoky on the palate. Taste is smoke, chocolate, caramel, oak. Good stout but doesn't really say s'mores to me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Base Camp, PDX, 22/05/13.
Mid black with a thin tan head and a marshmallow perched on the side of the glass!
Nose is sweet sugars, chocolate, dark malt, sugar rush !
Thankfully the taste wasnít as sweet as the nose suggested, roast malt, chocolate, molasses and liquorice subdued the sugar rush somewhat.
Medium bodied with a little kick, fine carbonation.
Ok sweet stout.

Of all the Base Camps we tasted at Platypus Pub the other night, this was the best they had to offer. A solid chocolaty stout. Only had a sample...a full pint might have been nice.
