COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. SíMore Stout is a complex stout brewed with graham cracker, milk chocolate, marshmallow, and smoked malt. The rich hearty sensations each take their turn, starting with the subtle graham aromas, and leading pleasantly into the sweet flavors of marshmallow cream and milk chocolate. All of these flavors are followed by a slight lingering flavor of smoke. A flaming marshmallow garnish is strongly encouraged.

Tap @ Shorts: Dark brown body with a khaki head resting on top. Aroma full of toasted nuts, graham cracker, creamy sweetness, light roasted coffee, & just a hint of subtly smokiness. Sweet lactose in the flavor with inclusions of faint anise, brown & caramelized sugar, burnt caramel, mild mallow foam, & an underlying smoke presence. Some creamy chocolates, finishing with just a mild touch of roasted bitterness to nip the sweetness before it gets out of control. A well made, delicious sweet(-ish) stout.

On tap at the anniversary party. Shorts hit the nail on the head with this one. Literally a liquid símore. Has all the qualities. Very dark pour with a thick fluffy head. Aroma is full of chocolate and marshmallow sweetness. Flavors match exactly as well. Very creamy chocolate and marshmallow fluff flavors. A graham cracker covered in a thick smoke background. Really good. Donít know if I would want a ton of it but still good stuff.

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. Itís always fun to try a new beer, and especially one by Shortís, 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 brewerís 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: Iím thankful for the opportunity to try this, but I wonít have it again and I would not recommend it. I thought Shortís PB & J was really innovative and fun. Strawberry Shortís Cake was not only convincing, but incredibly tasty and very drinkable. I commend Shortís 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 isnít really there. Mess of chocolate and malts that donít really meld well together. No marshmallow. No fragments cracker. Kind of a scham.

On draft at Lord Hoboís 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.
