330ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with red hue and a small, short lived, tan head that dissipates to an outer ring, leaving spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, bread, caramel, cocoa and vanilla. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, bread, vanilla and nutmeg with a dry, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a thin texture and average carbonation. No s'mores here, but still tasty. DuffMan (10934) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2018 Bottle, beer advent calendar. Pretty much a regular dry stout, decently made (albeit a little thin), with a dry finish. patricks110 (2841) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2017
Seems like smore is more of an afterthought on the name than the influence in makign this beer. Its good regardless but I get a bit of cocoa; thats it. Mild bitterness, light carbonaiton, cocoa, a bit of espresso in the aftertaste. Roasted heavily with a robust profile, body is heavy. Overall; fairly average. mcberko (20268) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2017
On tap at Kings, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out dry cocoa, oats, toasted malt and dry earthy notes. Flavour is very hearty, with lots of toasted malt, earthy notes, and touch of dry cocoa. Not really getting the s’mores. Dry and roasty. It’s alright. sawyerpc15 (203) - Bowser, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2017
Enjoyed this stout and of course it was the name that attracted me to it. Was l little thin and head not as strong as a Guinness.

Nice vanilla hit...I love stouts and this has an exciting difference that definitely makes me want to drink more Oakes (19550) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2017
Medium brown. Thin head. On the nose, maybe light chocolate and vanilla. Sweet but bland palate, thinnish, not enough sugary richness to carry the artificial vanilla notes. If you're making dessert beer, you cannot skimp on the richness. It simply doesn't work. sulawang (1217) - - DEC 4, 2017
Visual: Pours dark brown without much of a head, thin ringed retention w/ half island, several slow micro streams.
Nose: chocolate, vanilla sweet malt (lvl-8)-intensity
Attack: crisp-tingly, nutmeg
Mid-palate: toasted liquid barley malt, (lvl-5-sweetness), mild milky, chocolate malt
Finish: soft roasted bitter, vanilla extract, lingering bittersweet malt
Summary: A prominent but dull spice presence; The vanilla flavour is rather basic and tastes of the inexpensive extract variety. The malt backbone lacks length and carry but the overall spice + malt combo is at least drinkable, although not the least bit memorable. It has a bit of lingering and compounding astringency - this beer doesn't taste at all like a s'more. Crit (4116) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2017
Tap at Brewery
A very poor looking beer...Black, fast fading beige head. Very sweet nose. Sweet palate, light roast with espresso notes Gerbeer (4215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2017
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with moderate head. Aromas of sweet vanilla, marshmallows, chocolate syrup, and tinny roasted malts. Thin flavours of same. Really needs a bigger malt base.
