On tap at the brewpub. Pour dark brown with a thin tan head. Lots of graham crackers and marshmallow sweetness in the aroma and taste.

Bottle. Sour coffee/chocolate malt aroma, and a little charcoal. Black brown with a thin ring of tiny white scummy particles. Extremely sour/acidic charred dark malt flavor, not pleasant. Drain pour.

Bottle gifted by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! A: Dark brown with a thin, wispy head that leaves a few small traces of lacing randomly located around the glass. S: Roasted malt with a big chocolate scent. Also, I detect a lactic scent that is slightly sour / milky. T: The beer is honestly not very enjoyable. It’s always fun to try a new beer, and especially one by Short’s, a brewery that pushes the limits to the extreme. However, this beer does not taste like smores. I enjoy smores made on the campfire, but I struggle to find the connection between smores and this beer. The flavor is mostly of burned malts, chocolates (which are the redeeming quality of the beer), and a slightly sour taste that I can only guess is the brewer’s attempt to replicate a marshmallow flavor. M: The body is too thin and frail to be associated with a stout of any kind. Carbonation level is on the low end of the spectrum. D: I’m thankful for the opportunity to try this, but I won’t have it again and I would not recommend it. I thought Short’s PB & J was really innovative and fun. Strawberry Short’s Cake was not only convincing, but incredibly tasty and very drinkable. I commend Short’s for pushing the boundaries, but this beer just falls short.

Cloudy dark brown beer, short lived tan head. Cracker crumbs rise to the surface! Tangy dark malt and chocolate nose. Light palate, a little crisp and dry. Tangy dark malt with a subtle biscuit tone. Not really getting much chocolate or marshmallow. Finishes dry. A decent Porter - never a Stout! Ha!

Dark black k body with a tan head that isn’t really there. Mess of chocolate and malts that don’t really meld well together. No marshmallow. No fragments cracker. Kind of a scham.

On draft at Lord Hobo’s for EBF weekend. Been wanting to try this forever and was pleased that I got a fresh taste this go around. The aroma has a chocolate lactose presence with a hint of cream. Flavor is mostly smooth chocolate malt with the marshmallow coming through on the very back end. Not all I hoped it would be but certainly not a let down either.

EBF 09 on tap from notes. Sounded great, I mean marshmellow and chocolate. Poured out a dark brown hue with a marshmellow on a toothpick. Not much on the nose, some sweeter aromas, burnt sugar, cocoa, but very light. Palate is a train wreck of malty messy flavors not following each other. Too sweet, with no finish. Worth a try, but not very good.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Lightly salted roast malt and chocolate aroma. Flavors are amazingly expressive of a smore. The toasted graham cracker, chocolate, and faint marshmallow flavors all come through. I think the stout roast adds some campfire-like authenticity to the prepation through the means of toasted and roasted caramels. Fun! Thanks so much Sean for this awesome string of recent Shorts bottlings.
