Was very excited about this beer when I heard about it. Sawdust City does a good stout and when I thought of adding chocolate and marshmallow to it, well, the progression just seemed obvious. So my last taster for my on location this week was the lovely S'more Stout.

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.

 Impressions: Fail, So-so, Pass, Exceptional 

Cost: 5/6 PASS

Colour: 5/6 PASS
Beer Style: 5/6 PASS
Re-Order:  6/6 EXCEPTIONAL 
Experience:  5/6 PASS

Final Thoughts:

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.

Cheers
