3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours a dark brown with small tan head that settles to a ring and leaves a very minimal amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is marshmallow, graham cracker, light chocolate, a bit of vanilla, and a light roastiness. The taste has quite a bit of Initial sweetness with marshmallow and vanilla. There is also some graham cracker and light chocolate. The finish has a light roastiness with a lingering marshmallow. Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. There is a lot going on here, but I didn’t find it to work that well. A bit too sweet for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chocolate fills my nose with a hint of marshmellows. A dark brown almost black appearance with a medium brown head. Seemed like a very full body brew. A very chocolately taste. Almost like cold melted chocolate. There is a light sweet marshmellow flavor. Almost overly sweet. Low carbonation. Very full bodied, very rich. Overall not bad its worth a buy espically if its cold out and you wanna split a brew with some friends.

Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. Nice vanilla/chocolate and graham cracker scent. Taste is similar, almost has a band aid flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Dark brown, low beige head. Aroma is very sweet, lots of vanilla, chocolate, and some burnt sugars. Taste is similar, although less intense than the aroma. Quite sweet, but somehow lacking in body. The vanilla has an extract quality to it that I’m not crazy about. Also, for a "campfire" stout it is missing the most fundamental campfire trait: smoke. I think a little woodsy smoke and more malt body would have made this a better beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber thanks to Jimmy. Nose is roasty, vanilla. Taste is the same but fairly mild. Pretty light overall for a stout with just a hint of alcohol. Mediocre.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dominate aromas and flavors of milk chocolate, brown bread and mildly roasted malt. Creamy layers of marshmallow, creamy chocolate and brown bread wash the palate. Not the heaviest stout I have tasted, though the weight is pleasant and the texture smooth and creamy.
--- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours opaque black with a small tan head and great lacing. Aroma is coffee, graham crackers, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of smoke. Flavor is quite sweet, same as above with a light smoky, light bitter finish. Creamy and full bodied, and quite an interesting twist on the standard stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Burger in Santa Cruz. Nearly black in color with a thin but lasting tan head. Nice chocolatey aroma with roasty notes. The flavor is nice if a bit artificial seeming. Tootsie Roll, toasty burnt marshmallow, and earthy tones. Tasty brewski. Medium-bodied with a pretty standard mouthfeel. I like this overall.
