Bottle. A- Burnt marshmallow, hazelnuts, graham cracker, ash, subtle whisky. A- Black color, black liquid, minimal head. T- Burnt marshmallow, graham cracker, nutty, ash, mild booze. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- At just over six months old, I was shocked at how little barrel aging I could taste. That part seemed to be minimal, maybe for the best. The charred marshmallow and graham cracker spice/nuttiness overtake for the most part. Even the chocolate is fairly subdue being replaced mostly with an ash/char flavor. I imagine this beer is good in the dead cold of winter or the hot summer nights. Drinks easy and not too terribly sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 12oz bottle. Dark pour. Huge marshmallow aroma. Taste has alot of marshmallow up front, then some booze. Well balanced, sweet, boozy. This is awesome.

Great Variant, none have let me down so far. Deep brown pour with mild carbonation from a 12 oz bottle. Notes of vanilla, bourbon, marshmallow, graham cracker, toffee, sweet malt, oak, cinnamon. Taste mimics the aroma, smooth, with a little heat at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Belmont. A: Obsidian in color with a cappuccino head. Light lacing. N: Graham cracker, cocoa, earth, coffee, marshmallow, light roast and some burnt brown sugar. T: Very sweet with a rounding of the cracker. Plenty of cocoa here with just enough roast to balance things out so it doesn't become cloying. M: Medium heavy body Light alcohol burn soft carbonation O: Fun little beer shows showcases the s'mores aspect very well.

On tap at Belmont Station. Pours a pitch black hue with a medium grey head. A big roasty nose, huge sweet elements. Spicy, huge sweet vanilla and marshmallow, oily, chocolate and ash. Very sweet, fits the name very well.

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2017
bottle. Black with small head. I previously had this at the 2017 Michigan Winter Beer Fest -- this was the variant I most anticipated. Wasn't good there, but I revisited once it was bottled, in the hopes that it would be better. Slightly improved. Marshmallow comes through reasonably well. Chocolate flavor of the base beer seems accented. Graham doesn't really make it through. Not actually bad, but just not as good as it seemed this combo could be.

AirForceHops (8179) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2017
12 oz. bottle purchased at Beertopia, Omaha, NE. Bottled 6-20-17. Appearance is black with fast dying white head. No lace, low carbonation level. Aroma is really awesome! Shows mild graham cracker, chocolate, and... Wow, indeed, marshmallow. The flavor is spot on burnt marshmallow, dark chocolate, subtle graham cracker in the body. Booze is nearly hidden.

The body and mouthfeel is thin. No bourbon is found here. This is a tasty dessert stout in small doses. More than 6 ounces and it becomes overwhelming with sweetness.

Draft. Of all the dragons milk variants, this is one of the most derivative. Pours a hazed black and aroma is burnt marshamllow, flavor is burnt marshmallow, sweet and boozy.

Ferris (17785) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle - Chocolate' graham cracker and marshmallow. Jet brown with a small beige head. Like it smells with a touch of graham cracker notes. A pastry beer for sure.

mcberko (20268) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2017
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is intensely sweet, with tons of s'mores, bourbon barrels and vanilla. Flavour is likewise quite sweet, with plenty of s'mores, bourbon, vanilla and alcohol. Quite sweet, but not quite cloying. Very nice fun sweet beer.
