very sweet. dark, excellent. You taste the marshmallow as well as chocolate. Very smooth too. Four pack did me well. Got the same thing with each bottle. Im very pleased with off color for this great beer that have thought up.

bhensonb (12581) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours very dark brown with a slight dark tan head that left rapidly. Aroma of sugar, chocolate and graham flour. Almost full bodied, but not quite. Flavor is chocolate, graham flour and vanilla. Should say smooth burnt malt, but it’s kind of hidden. Tasty, and the heat isn’t obnoxious. Still, and I don’t recall putting this in a rating before, it, to me, is a bit overrated. More "body" might help. Or not.

maxwelldeux (4169) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a smallish tan head on there. Nose is definitely roasty, with some chocolate and vanilla coming through, as well as just a bit of spiced breadiness I can attribute to the graham crackers. Taste is a bit roasty and definitely sweet, with hints of smores to it. Interesting brew...

ChainGangGuy (4551) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2015
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.

JulienHuxley (4318) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle shared. Oily flat black pour. Aroma is roasty, lots of vanilla, marshmallows, fruity. Taste is sweet, roasty with a lot of vanilla, light acrid roastiness. Palate is unfortunately a bit flat med bodied with light carbonation, a bit watery.

tom10101 (4006) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
UPDATED: APR 20, 2015 Live from NH. Bottle (12 oz). Shared by Chris, thanks! Split 3-ways.

Appearance: Murky brown with a small tan head and little lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla notes,maple syrup and caramel notes.

Taste: Much more flavorful than the aroma with tons of marshmallow, cocoa, vanilla, caramel and medium to heavy sweetness.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Marshmallow finish.

Overall: Quite flavorful RIS, but it does get hard a bit hard to drink because of all going on in this one. Tasty.

marcus (7671) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours near black with a huge tan head and a chocolate and marshmallow aroma. There is a rich chocolate and vanilla flavor with marshmallow finish. It does taste like a smore with alcohol.

33cl bottle @Dangerous Bottleshares 7.0 thanks to Baron! Pours pitch black with a small, light brown head. Aroma has graham! Sweet grains, crackers, vanilla, marshmellows, milk chocolate and some caramel. Taste has a lot of chocolaty sweetness, slight roast and some graham dryness/even some bitterness. Malts, vanilla, fudgy caramel, milk chocolate. Full body and medium high carbonation.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2015
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.
