3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle.
Unusual nose thatís not bad but not promising either. Fortunately, the flavor lives up to expectations: itís rich, lightly sweet and harmonious with well set levels of input from the cocoa and vanilla beans. Hints of graham crackers too. Partially hidden alcohol.
Full body with light carbonation and well hidden alcohol.
Overall: a fine sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, shared by Scott. Pours black, with a small, tan head. The aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, molasses, and sugar. Very sweet and syrupy, with no hint of bitterness or balance. Heavy body, syrupy, creamy, and thick. This is a fun beer; cloying sweetness, but that should be expected. Nails the smores character.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours darkest brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt, marshmallow and chocolate. Malt and vanilla flavor giving way to chocolate and metal before a roasty finish. Metal flavor diminishes as the beer breathes a little.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle, stamp on bottle says bottled on 14 DEC 2016. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like chocolate, marshmallows, graham crackers and vanilla. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also some roasted malt, vanilla and molasses flavors noticeable too. This really does smell/taste like a Símores would, but thereís also a nice amount of bitterness so itís not overpoweringly sweet at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís slick and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Glad I bought this, Iíd like to drink this again! $5.99 a bottle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a wine glass showing pitch black and half a finger of dark coffee brown foam.
The nose shows big deep dark malts with sweet but light notes of marshmallow.
The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Light lactose sweetness runs throughout warming up to a marshmallow sweetness. Dark malts take the center stage. Finish is a dark chocolate bitterness with a resurgence of vanilla and marshmallow. Surprisingly well done.

Kinda smells like a símore, doesnít look like one and tastes vaguely like one. Mostly marshmallow, very sweet, the definition of a dessert beer. Tried at Omahaís Extreme Beerfest with Jess and the parents in 2017.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really lackluster. Very faint carbonation with a non existent head. Little in the way of aroma and mouthfeel. No good alcohol bite. A little roast, chocolate flavor. Not a joy to drink. Up against other imperials this one lags behind. Adding in the $16/4 pack price I feel like a fool. Beer and fruit you buy at a grocery store you should be able to return for a refund. Disappointed in that it's sub par and I expected much more from OC.
