Taste: toasted malt, coffee, marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla oats, sweet finish. same with the nose. Black/brown hue, mostly opaque with a tall foamy tan head and very delicate lace. medium body. Some kick to it in it's 10.7% abv Scipio (1233) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2017
Pours black with a thin brown head. The aroma consists of a balance of coffee, vanilla, and chocolate, with some traces of alcohol found as well. Its kind of dry upon sipping. There is an easy boozy base to build upon. Heavier in both coffee and vanilla, some solid chocolate, roasted malts, and lesser amounts of cocoa. The vanilla is a constant that extends into the aftertaste. This one is medium in body, with a thick, creamy texture, and is softer in carbonation. Very good, and knocking on the door of excellence.

Tasted from bottle. Pours Black with almost no head. Aroma of cocoa, marshmallow, vanilla and coffee. Flavors similar to aroma. Also almost a peppery taste. Very nice stout.

Bottle in the dining room, just now. Alpha10 (839) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2017
Pours basically black with a small little wisp of a head.
The aroma is a lot of chocolate & coffee really, sweetish smelling with a bit of dark fruit but honestly surprisingly muted.
The flavor is that nice sweet marshmallow & dark chocolate thing that is so awesome in the original dinosmores, yep there’s some graham cracker, yep there’s some nice roasty bitterness to offset all the sweetness, and to top it off it has a very nice coffee character, but it’s part of the mix here... this is a nice beer that adds coffee as a layer for complexity and balance without dominating the flavor with lots of coffee (not that there is anything wrong with that)
2017/08/06 - Pours dark cola brown with a thick, frothy, tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. Aroma is toasted grain, dark vegetal coffee notes, cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla and hints of roasted marshmallow. Taste is milk chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, toasted grain and sweet vanilla/marshmallow. Mouthfeel is medium to full and slightly chewy with smooth carbonation and a toasty, lightly warming finish. Smooth with some nice flavours.

Rating # 9,500!!! Inky black pour with a thin tan head. Lovely aroma full of chocolate cake and coffee and brown sugar. Rich dark flavor of roast coffee and cocoa and a touch of coffee cake and black malt, a touch of booze warmth. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 13, 2017
Bottle. Sweet with a lot of coffee and rich viscosity to go around. Worth a look. NikkTwist (3362) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Draft at Bru Craft. Black pour with a settled thin tan ring. Coffee. Liquorice. Chocolate. Currants. Dark roasts but not overly roasty. Only faint gingerbread in my pour. Not bad but I’ve had so much better. italianjohn (3277) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Black pour with a thin tan head not much carbonation .... aroma of coffee, vanilla, sugary marshmallow, chocolate, roasted malts and cocoa .... taste is of vanilla, sugary marshmallow, graham cracker, cocoa, roasted malts and coffee ... has much more graham cracker than the regular smores .... finish is sweet and roasted with lingering cocoa, roasted coffee, graham cracker and marshmallow .... slick and oily mouthfeel ... medium body and the abv is hidden very well .... very sessionable and tasty brew. Loved it on par with the original willisread (3694) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Bottle from J’s. Pours a clearish, deep brown to black with a small half-finger of foam. Big coffee forward nose with cacao nib and marshamallow aromas. Not quite the body of Bomb! but the flavors are there. Lots of coffee, chocolate, nuts, cacao nib, brownie, marshmallow, nutella. Awesome and a step up from the already great original.
