Draft at Beer Junction, Seattle. Thick oily black, small tan head. Sweet toasted marshmallow aroma, milk chocolate up front, runs in to some sour-sweet coffee. Toffee. Lots of toasted caramel. Body is a little light. Nice sweet stout, a little sharpness at finish.

On tap at beer junction. Nailed the aroma. It’s smores. Light mouthfeel. Almost watery. Taste is good, not quite as good as the aroma but still well done. Decent beer.

Tap at Beer Junction. Deep, dark brown. Graham crackers and lots of sweetness on the nose. Flavor brings a bit of caramel (okay, maaaaybe toasted marshmallow). One-dimensional. Meh.

Bottle from a trade. poured into my trusty lagunitas jar glass. Nose of chocolate, cocoa, brownies, fudge, and sugar. Pour is black with deep ruby highlights. medium sized brown head, tightly compact bubbles, laces well. Wow, really comes through in the taste. Immediately, I get fudge, sweet chocolate and vanilla. Mid palate starts to show some crackery and bready flavors. a semi sweet finish, while still leaving you wanting for more. A very subtle tartness that I attribute to a low pH from roasted grain. I tend to get that in a lot of stouts.
