4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smokey, chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla nose. Sipping reveals the graham cracker and a rich, dry roastyness. Really complex and stops short of being heavy handed.

Sampled from the tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a black with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dark chocolate with light roasted malts with a bit of caramel and vanilla underlying. Flavor combines toffee and chocolate with some vanilla and a dark grain backbone.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Great as an imperial stout. Was surprised that it didn?t have a slightly sweet aftertaste for the smores flavor stated. The graham was noted, missing marshmallows, But the vanilla and deep cocoa were apparent. Bottle

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some graham cracker, some vanilla and marshmallow. A lot of roast, but the elements don’t come together super well here. Tastes somewhat like burnt smores but doesn’t quite work for a stout. Pours dark brown without much head or lacing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Velo Cult. This is one of the best names for a beer ever,.
A: Pure black, cappuccino head.
N: Big cocoa, coffee, char, some graham cracker and marshmallow, sugar, and some woodiness.
T: Very sweet, but able to rein the cloying elements.
M: Oily, medium-heavy body, soft carbonation, alcohol is hidden.
O: Lots of similarities with the Base Camp S’more Stout, but I think I would take this one over the other.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot leaving spot lacing. Chocolate and vanilla aromas. Sweet vanilla and marshmallow upfront turning to mild cocoa in the lasting finish. I’d certainly call this a marshmallow stout... yummy
