12 oz bottle into a tulip. Pitch black, khaki foam, et al. Nose is cocoa and some graham and vanilla sweetness. Not overly complex and despite the ingredients it doesn’t smell adjunct filled. Taste is a nice comforting balance of chocolate and vanilla/burnt sugar sweetness. Cinnamon as it warms. Light on the roast which helps it tremendously. Again, not insanely flavorful. Really tasty beer, but not as deep as the ingredient list might assume.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour with very little head. Great aroma. Graham cracker, chocolate syrup, lactose, vanilla, and light roast. Tastes kinda like s’mores I guess. Maybe slightly charred ones with alcohol. Graham cracker, marshmallow, char, ash, chocolate, and vanilla. Alcohol is a bit noticeable in the finish but not too bad. Medium body. Cool beer.

Ratman197 (10684) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2014
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, dried fruit, tobacco, light roastiness and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavoirs of milk chocolate, vanilla, roastiness and light earthinbess with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.

JBPortland (1056) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12oz bottle pours dark brown black with half finger of head. Nose is sweet nutty vanilla cream and toasted coffee cocoa, hints or sweet marshmallow, or maybe it’s just my imagination. Taste is a touch thin with milky cream, vanilla, coffee bean, nutty cocoa, chocolate. Finish is sweet white chocolate, cream, cocoa, vanilla, nutty. Decent, nothing really that special.

12 ounce bottle. Big black pour. Thin body and not a lot of carbonation. Marshmallow and vanilla throughout. Very dessert like. $6 a 12 ounce. Slightly high.

JStax (3439) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2014
12 ounce bottle thanks to lukaduke. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a thick black with a khaki head of foam that lasted the entirety of the beer. The aroma had roasty chocolate and hints at vanilla. In the taste I picked up the roast and some marshmallow. I was really hoping the graham cracker would come through. That would have been great. Thicker mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3fourths (8468) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2014 Bottle conditioned 12oz. Dark brown body with a thin ring of a head. Aroma of lactose and chocolate / cocoa-focused malt with the vanilla bean apparent but the graham cracker absent, thank heavens. Medium-full body, syrupy and creamy in the mouth, highly sweet with relatively low bitterness, finishing with faint roast astringency and faint burn of alcohol, so it’s a tad messy late. Simple sweet novelty stout with an impression of ice cream sundae. From their other products, Off Color seems capable of making decent beer even when using flavorings. This one I wouldn’t call decent, but without the adulteration, and with less sugar, I could see it work.

On tap at Velo Cult in Portland, OR. Colour...absolute black with a thick tan head. Nose...roasty and mosty toasty with dark chocolate and chicory. Palate...fairly plush with anise and dark Belgian chocolate, coffee nips and kind of a sweet spice thang goin’ on. The finish is long, lightly sweet and slightly tangy.
