3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is a warm graham cracker, with vanilla and some marshmallow. The beer is a rich, murky, oily dark-red brown with a sparse, thin and sudsy / soapy brown head that has a very light retention and no lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The texture is syrupy and slightly thick with a light, fizzy carbonation and a full, smokey body with sample chocolate notes, some vanilla, and a secondary graham cracker and roasted grains flavor. The finish contains some raisin like notes, but is mostly smokey with molasses, graham crackers, and marshmallow. The aftertaste is ashy with cocoa and vanilla notes.

Bottle. Stouty brownish-black, film for a head. Nose is roast, vanilla, S’mores... yeah. Mouth is relatively sweet, slick and chock full of stouty, campfire snack goodness. Solid.

12oz bottle pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, cocoa, vanilla, and alcohol. Very sweet, cocoa and vanilla really stick out, light marshmallow and graham cracker notes heading into a big boozy bitter finish. Salright...

It is good as faras it lives up to its name but is just way to sweet for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flat, dark pour and a cool label, which features a drawing of a mouse. This is a classic IS - big, rich, and potent. Chocolate, molasses, bourbon, marshmallow, punch, prune, and pumpernickel bagels in the flavor. Brewed with graham crackers! Boozy with toasted/burnt malts. The aroma has some floral bouquet to it. Very good.

Bottle. Dark cola color with tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt, soy sauce, a little marshmallow. Very balanced but didn’t really get the smores thing.

Delicious and a stand-out stout. Tastes like chocolate was added to a toned-down PT5. Obviously a huge complement.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. Bottle shared by Willrunforbeer. Very nice to spilt this bottle because a whole bottle would be to much for me. Aroma is Toasted marshmallow, cocoa, burnt sugar, thick molasses. Honestly its best to spilt this if you don’t want a real sweet stout. This is on the borderline of cloying. Body is full with a creamy mouthfeel. The lactose sugar, cocoa in full force up in this bitch, maybe a Toasted marshmallow character. Well got to say this does hide the ABV very well, but you could hide damn near anything under this sugar, wow. Over the top.

12oz bottle from 7-Eleven. Pours dark brown with s fast dying beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, graham cracker. Flavor is chocolate, heavy vanilla, and a marshmallow sweetness that continues all the way through the finish. There’s a hint of graham in there as well. Alcohol well hidden. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thought I’d revisit this one when I saw it on the shelf again. Remember not thinking much first go round. Black pour with a quickly fading, fizzy beige head. Aroma was big time vanilla and dark roasted malt, melted candy bar, dark cocoa. Flavors were slightly sweet with the vanilla pushing forward, hints of cocoa, roast, astringent malty finish. Mouthfeel could use some work as it was a touch thin and fizzy for the style. Overall nothing impressive here, dig the aroma but doesn’t live up to it.
