Bottle and served in a Bells tulip: Pours deep brown near opaque with a lovely fluffy beige head and very good lace. Holy Mole, there be marshmallows here! Add the bakers chocolate, toasted crackers, hint of smoke and wood, and a faint mint it is exactly as advertised. The taste is more of the same with sweet marshmallows, chocolate and toast along with some roast and smoke. There is a slight hop bitterness and some coffee too keeping this from becoming cloying. Then there is the mouth feel, thin and watery not fitting of the bombastic aroma and flavor profile. That sucks IMO but this beer is a nice trip down the camping experience. Wanting s’more mouth feel but I can live with what they did here. I would recommend a one time purchase for any stoutie.
Growler. Pours a still obsidian black. Smells of chocolate chips, leather, boozy fruit and burnt wood. Tastes booze and licorice forward, heavy on the dense gooey chocolate. Tastes like it'd be a higher percentage. dflb (54) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Purchased at Gerrard’s Market, Campfire Stout is a stout brewed with graham crackers and molasses by HighWater Brewing.
The air of the beer packs a wallop of chocolate. An alcohol content of 6.5% is sensible and lightly tasted if you are keen to its sensation.
The flavor of chocolate is dominate from start to finish. Molasses provides weight to the drink and gives a syrupy quality to the take. Graham cracker is tasted upon the mouthfeel and in the watery finish. Marshmallows are sensed with the chocolate and molasses, and yields a creaminess to the libation.
Campfire Stout is a transportive chocolate stout. The concept of the beer is to capture a s’more into a drink. The beer takes me back to the last time I took a bite out of a s’more at a campfire with my family and friends gazing at a gorgeous star lit sky out in the desert. Campfire Stout is a delicious beer that will remind you of the campfire treat. I fully intend to have this beer at my side the next I go camping.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2017 1.6 bottle from whole foods. Poors black with a small brown head, taste is smokey with chocolate and honey. Very tasty stout, would love to try on nitro. caribou43 (1213) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2017
I bought this beer at the pibar the last month with a good offer on this bottle. I drink this beer today at home with my wife during a Peruvian meal. Honestly, it is a really good stout, too sweet for me, even though a good one. Pouring this beautiful nectar, you get a pleasant dark body, typical for the style, white and brown foal, normal carbonation for the style. The first thing coming is the aroma, perfect smelling of chocolate, vanilla like candy. At the firsy sip, you observe that it is a sweet stout with roasted malt but there are huge tastes of chocolate, vanilla, liquorice, oak, some hop but it is discreet. I personally prefer the young's chocolate. At the final of this beer, the taste is more mineral, a good experience. dwyerpg (6454) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2017
This beer is definitely sweet, but never quite becomes too much. Probably best shared, as a bomber is a bit too much. Don't get the smoke of a campfire but I'm sure that was i tentional, certainly more a sweet s'more feel.

Deep dark brown hue under a thin light beige head. Magnificent aroma of toasted marshmallow and milk chocolate and light graham cracker sweetness with a touch of molasses. Big palate and full body with a complex flavor of molasses and chocolate and booze warmth and marshmallow creaminess. kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 18, 2017
On tap. Deep black pour with a frothy foamy brown head. Aroma of graham cracker, bitter chocolate and faint smoke. Very drinkable with a slight dry finish. gregwilsonstl (2691) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2017
