Draft. Inky black with creamy khaki head. Nice chocolate shake aroma. Sweet, not overbearing but tasty and smooth finish. Very good.
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 Pours black with light brown head. A roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and coffee aroma. A chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, coffee and some winter spices. A lingering coffee and roasted malt aftertaste. notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle - dark cola-looking pour - fizzy, but no head - nose and flavor are pretty sweet, but that’s to be expected here, and there is ample complexity, with notes of toasted marshmallow, vanilla, anise, chocolate - flavor has some bitterness, alcohol warmth, and a bit of smoke that compliments the toastiness of the graham cracker and marshmallow - lingering caramelized sugars and roast - good. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 3, 2017
This was too sweet for me. The marshmallow flavor I got, with some coffee. But I just didn’t care for it much. chinchill (5313) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2017
12 oz bottle.
Unusual nose that’s not bad but not promising either. Fortunately, the flavor lives up to expectations: it’s 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. GTAEgeek (2414) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2017
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.

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. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2017
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 there’s also some roasted malt, vanilla and molasses flavors noticeable too. This really does smell/taste like a S’mores would, but there’s also a nice amount of bitterness so it’s not overpoweringly sweet at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s slick and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Glad I bought this, I’d like to drink this again! $5.99 a bottle. jc1762 (1609) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 30, 2017
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. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Kinda smells like a s’more, doesn’t look like one and tastes vaguely like one. Mostly marshmallow, very sweet, the definition of a dessert beer. Tried at Omaha’s Extreme Beerfest with Jess and the parents in 2017. Maverick34 (3304) - New York, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Blackish pour from bottle. Vanilla, roasted malt, some graham cracker. Bitter chocolate. Pretty good.
