3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting. Thanks Mikko!
Black/brown stuff with soon vanishing small head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste follows aroma - lot of chocolate. Little bit watery, could be better with 1-2% more ABV. Easy.

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark brown pour with a thick and puffy tan head. Heavy roasted aroma with tons of cocoa and a light graham cracker note. Flavor is cocoa, chocolate, light smoke, graham cracker and a mild hint of marshmallow at the end. Definitely tastes like drinking a s’more.

Bottle. My first from this brewery. Black with a medium head that was slow to dissipate but the wait was worth it.. Chocolate dominates with coffee also floating around. A bit predictable but still very drinkable.

22 oz bottle thanks to Wittales. Pours deep dark brown with ample frothy khaki head. Good lacing. Aroma: cola, vanilla cream soda, toasted marshmallows. Taste: Cherry cola syrup. Copper. Light roast/ash. I could see this as a sorta wonky s’more. Palate: medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Overall: I’d like a little more campfire.

Aroma - chocolate!!!! Chocolate milk, chocolate sauce, chocolate.
Appearance - black as night. Small head.
Taste - amazingly smooth milky chocolate stout with very little grainy character.
Palate - a little carbonation bite in the middle of my tongue, dissipates quickly into a smooth finish.
Overall - really great desert beer. Decadent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at World Craft Beer Tasting 2014. Aromas of cocoa, heavier chocolate, marshmallow, Dark brown. Mild chocolate, thick raost malt, more chocolate, and it fades slowly. Thin-medium body, a bit too thin in mid and final. Nose is very sweet. Not quite off-putting, but nearly. Flavors are not as strong. Tasty for what it is. But hard to finish one glass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at World Craft Beer Tasting 2014. Huge cocoa and graham cracker nose. Before knowing what it was, I said, "Smells like s’mores." I guess that means they nailed it. More cocoa and chocolate. Sweet cocoa, marshmallow, graham crackers. A bit too thin when you consider the flavor. Can’t drink a lot, but I like it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours pitch Black with a dense, fluffy, light Brown head. Aroma has chocolate and caramel malts, sugary sweetness, vanilla, milk chocolate and a Nice little roast. Taste is packed with candy. Marshmallows, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and so on. Sweet, but not over the top. Only thing to put on this, is that it could carry more alcohol. The alcohol there is, is really really well hidden. Pretty full body and a mild carbonation. One of the better non-imperial stouts i've had for sure!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 Tap. Pours black with a brown/ruby edge and tan creamy but small head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, and a lot of it! Vanilla, marshmallow, some subtle coffee. Taste is sweet with same notes as aroma and a bit roast. Really soft and smooth. Finish has a pleasant light dryness. Great interpretation that doesn’t get too sweet. Calling for a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
