COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices on the nose.  A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate and fig fruits diving into a semi-dry finish of truffle and cherry.

I got to finish off my fiancé's at the Matchbox last night. A lot sweeter than I was expecting, but it is a delicious beer. Might be tough to knock down multiple in a session, but great in its own. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at denver beer co. pours dark brown with little head and lacing. Aroma is sweet and chocolatey. Definitely taste the graham cracker as it warms up. Mouthfeel is full, but flavor is thin. Overall the novelty is the best part.

Pass the s'mores! This porter is hefty and has the unique taste of graham cracker! I even taste a marshmallow in there somewhere, along with vanilla and a bit of cherry on the finish. Decent lacing, not-so-great head, but the experience is pure summer camp-out fun! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Denver Beer Co. Pour is deep brown with light red hues and a frothy tan head; great lacing. Big sweet chocolate aroma - vanilla, graham crackers, light coffee, roast, lacto, and hit chocolate. Nice. Taste is roasty, malty, sweet milk chocolate, somewhat earthy, light espresso, grassy, and bready. Medium body with medium-to-high carbonation. Really nice porter, but could benefit from more body - still probably their best offering.

nimbleprop (4975) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2012
16oz pint at the brewery. Pours a watery, translucent near black with some off white head. Nose of vanilla, some ritz cracker, a little caramel, malty, light chocolate. Flavor is sweet, malty, vanilla, cookies, chocolate, light spice, light coffee. Medium bodied, dry finish. Wife loved it. Sweet but not cloying.

Sampled at GABF 2012. Started out quite well but then faded a bit. Could have been a bit bigger and viscous. A little watery by the end. The flavor is nice though. Good chocolate notes.
