4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
