3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
8 ounce pour - $8.00 at The Porter in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Dispensed black from the tap and topped with half an inch with tan froth. Coating lace on the descent.
Smell: Predominately, a scent of well-roasted malts, with bitterish dark chocolate, cinnamon-dosed pie crusts with light touches of dark fruit.
Taste: Roast malt, burnt cream with an understated taste of bitterish chocolate. The graham cracker flavor sure feels infused with a heavy dose of powdered cinnamon. Minor, fleeting touches of the vanilla and marshmallow. Dark fruitiness, a little bit tangy. Drying, roasty finish, and, I swear, still so cinnamon-y.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation, though feeling fairly soft on the tongue.
Overall: Though interesting and well worth a try, I was a little thankful for the scant serving size of a mere eight ounces.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a black with a small white head. Aroma is a bit of chocolate malt with some Hershey’s syrup. Flavor is more of the chocolate malt with a thick syrup. I did not get a smores flavor. It’s just a thick kinda chocolate malt. No real alcohol burn and it remains sweet throughout. Decent at best.
