ajnepple (4897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2016
On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Almost black in appearance with a brown head. The nose is licorice, molasses, light roasted grain and light earthy notes. The flavor is better, adding chocolate malt, coffee, light vanilla and light marshmallow. Medium to full body. A little off, but a solid imperial stout overall.

Like drinking a chocolate marshmallow drowning in malt. I love this beer. Itís one of my favorite dark beers.

HonkeyBra (4025) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Blackish pour with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and sugar. Some vanilla and marshmallow notes. Flavor is sweet, with chocolate and roasted malt to balance it out a little bit. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel, with coating carbonation. Finishes sweet with a touch of booze. Not my style, but not straight sugar like I was expecting.

Turboninja (469) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Strong, bit pungent aroma with sweet notes of marshmallow, vanilla and some alcohol on the background. Pitch black/red with no head. Strong, smooth and balanced taste with slightly bitter and bit sweeter notes of vanilla and a hint of cocoa and marshmallow. some roasted malts and licorice. Medium/wide taste spectrum and long malty aftertaste with a hint of licorice. Strong/medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, quite successful, bit different specialty. Could have more body and a bit more taste for this percentage.

Beachmaster (435) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours jet black, with a minimal head. Decent lacing. Nose is cocoa and dark chocolate malt. Taste follows, but with a pronounced marshmallow sweetness. I was prepared to hate this, but itís actually pretty good. A little too sweet for my tastes, but not bad at all.

Man, this is a hedonistic Imperial Stout. Thatís just the way I like them. Black as night and sinfully rich. DinoSmores is exactly what I need to brave this bastard cold. Pour is thick and low on carbonation - very little foam. Aroma of graham, cocoa, and charred sugar. Taste is huge on toasted milk chocolate and creamy vanilla. Okay, fine, so the graham cracker didnít translate hugely into the flavor aside from some subtly spicy malt, but with flavors this good, who cares? This is a sipper, but itís one hell of an easy brew to tip back.

Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and banana. Taste is marshmallow fluff and chocolate with a marshmallow chocolate alcohol finish. Pretty impressed with it.

HuskerTan (1566) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. A- Cocoa, roasty, vanilla. A- Black color, black liquid, minimal brown head. T- Anise, cocoa, roasty, smoke, tobacco, vanilla. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, strong finish. O- A good beer that was everything I didnít want yet managed to be good. If that could make any less sense. The aroma was faintly of a símore but only if you were looking for it. A hint of marshmallow that I think came across more as alcohol.The taste in no way resembled a símore. A tasty beer as it is but I think the name is misleading. If you go into this expecting a Brau Brotherís dessert type of beer then youíll be left to desire more.

Bottle pours a light black color with small mocha head..initial aroma is pretty good but then seems to fade completely..getting an initial smack of the marshmallow and graham cracker with some chocolate as well..fairly light bodied for the high abv..smooth and creamy finish on palate, not as much depth as expected overall and the smores seems to almost fade completely from the initial awareness..was anticipating a little more from this, from the high price tag, had some milk stout qualities as well..ok
