Fire up your roasting stick and get the graham crackers ready... Onto the tasting.
Pours a pitch dark brown/black with a tan head made up of tiny bubbles. Nose is primarily vanilla with some toasty wheaty, bready notes, and bitter chocolate. First sip is creamy vanilla, chocolate, toasty malt. Light creamy mouthfeel, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. One gets the effect of a creamy toasted marshmallow within the taste of the beer. Aeration is all about the vanilla with some light roasted malt at the finish.

An excellent stout, and a great augmentation. The marshmallow and the vanilla play very nicely with the chocolate and the roasted malt. Get out there and try this one... preferable in front of a fireplace, with some toasty marshmallows on the side.
