Draft taproom. Pours deep brown with a soft beige to tan head. Very amazing aroma of graham cracker, honey, chocolate. Jesus the flavor is smores almost exactly - actually reminds me of that old smores breakfast cereal when I was a child. Graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow, caramel. Good and not too sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Large alcohol vapors and vanilla extract on the nose. Bourbon on the tongue at the end. Beer gets more of a synthetic taste as it warms. The regular version is way better. To be fair I haven’t tasted a well executed s’mores stout yet.

12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with an average tan head. Aroma of chocolate, marshmallow, and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla, roasted malt, and some barrel. Nice.

Aromas of graham cracker, marshmallow, cinnamon, bourbon, and milk chocolate. Taste is bourbon, graham crackers, marshmallows, cinnamon, milk chocolate. I don’t know, it tastes as advertised, just kind of imitation heavy; or maybe it’s just too sweet.

Black. Nose has all the expected elements - lots of chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmellow. Flavor is chocolatey roast, with vanilla, and more graham presence. Light alcohol bite.

12 oz bottle from The Party Source. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki colored head that lasts. The aroma and flavor have chocolate, marshmallow, Graham crackers, light spice, medium bodied, smooth mouth feel, there is just a little something that I honestly can’t put my finger on that keeps this from being a 4 from me, hides the abv extremely well, very good.

Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 12 oz bottle. The pour on this is a medium to dark brown with a thin ring of lighter khaki head and no lace as it falls down. The aroma is surprisingly good. There is a nice darker cocoa, a roaster malt, just a hint of barrel, but the surprising thing is the graham cracker and marshmallow. There is a touch of smoke and a charred oak with a light alcohol. The flavor is just as good. The graham cracker and marshmallow definitely come through with a light chocolate and a good maltiness to it. How did they make a good one here? The mouth feel is still a medium body, but thicker than most Dragon’s Milks. The carbonation is a little softer with a lingeringly chocolate and bourbon finish. This is pretty damn good for what it is. 4 7 8 4 15

Bottled. Pours black a little thin and no much of a head. The aroma is marshmallow and chocolate. The palate is a little light. The taste is awesome. The taste is huge marshmallow. Then graham crack with a little chocolate. Wish a little bourbon sweetness. I’m not a huge fan of the original but this s’mores one is top notch stout.

In tap at Parry's. Pours a dark black and makes a thin beige head. Aroma is of gram crackers, brown sugar, marshmallow. Tastes like a damn s'more from the campfire! Awesomeness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, coffee, graham, hints of vanilla, slight smoke. Taste was a mix of sweet cocoa, hazelnut, graham crackers, vanilla into some roast, finishing sweet, slightly thin.
