Fatehunter (2243) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Formed two fingers of tan head on a pitch black body. Looks great. Well, it smells like a campfire: chocolate, marshmallows and coffee. Impressive. The taste is roasted malt, a touch of chocolate and coffee, and a mild bitterness at the end. It’s complex. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation and a heavier body. Here’s a well put together ale.

22 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown almost black in color with a smooth layer of tan colored foam at the head that shows good retention and slowly settles to a thin film. Some sudsy lacing are left behind in a wash. The aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, graham cracker, caramel, toasted vanilla and marshmallow. The flavor follows suit with the dark chocolate, caramel and toasted vanilla up front to go with notes of graham cracker and some earth roast to add some balancing bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth with subtle carbonation leading to a dry, sweet, and toasted vanilla finish. Nice easy drinking stout that reminds you of a s’more, which is definitely a childhood favorite.

Creamy and complex and good but I did not find it stood out enough in any way to be great. I had to guess at the marshmallow notes, yeah the cracker and chocolate are there. On tap at the Playhouse.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2016
750ml bottle shared at the New Glarus R & D Release #1 (New Glarus, WI). Pours a darker brownish black hue, a more opaque body with some brownish carmelized glow on the edges and bottom. Tannish frothy head atop is a firm layer, nice enough lacing dies down to a filmy layer, mellow lacing throughout is foamy like hot chocolate. Aromas are a bit toasty, roasty, subtle vanilla and marshmellow meet caramel, biscuit, graham cracker, and cocoa. Initial is medium bodied, not as thick as you’d expect with some richer caramel, graham, and cocoa nibs. Vanilla and marshmellow appeal into the backend is a bit sweet and soft, some roasty appeal grows. Brown malt, earthy, chocolate remnants. Not as rich flavors as you’d expect but lighter, an easier drinker. Nice.

Dark brown pour with beige head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, roasted malts and hops. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, graham crackers and hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced. Good solid stout.

Nocturne (1795) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Keg at Cafe Beermoth, Manchester. Black with lasting brown head. Vivid marshmallow aroma. Thick, robust, powerful taste with chocolatey notes. Well balanced taste but I would prefer a bit more sweetness personally. Very good overall.

Nice mild graham cracker aroma. Nothing in this beer is overpowering, which makes the unique s'more flavour they're going for much nicer. Good stout with a twist. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours near black with a dark tan head. Yep, tastes like s’mores. Graham crackers, chocolate, and lighter marshmallow. Like many sweet gimmick beers, this is great in a small pour.
