“Campfire Stout evokes fond memories of wilderness and camping adventures. Notes of chocolate and graham cracker topped with a hint of marshmallow will leave you wanting s’more. Like any campfire experience, this beer is best shared with a warm circle of family and friends.” 6.5 % ABV
Poured from a 22 oz bomber into my stout glass. Solid black in color, with a dark tan head. Light lacing is left on the glass.
Sweet milk chocolate, graham crackers (in a buttery, graham cracker pie crust sort of way), and yes, even light marshmallow undertones. Exactly as described on the bottle.
Medium-thin bodied, but rich and smooth going down. The initial flavor is of a malted barley/chocolate grain sweetness mixed a bit of smokiness, which leads to a moderately dry finish. The aftertaste is a roasted chocolate/marshmallow/graham flavor that lingers on the palate.
This truly is a campfire stout. All of the essential s’more flavors are represented fully, and done with enough care and grace that they don’t seemed forced or gimmicky. Artistically crafted beers like this are the reasons why I do what I do. As the logo banner tagline says, I’m trying to discover good beer, one pint at a time. This is certainly a good beer. While not the most amazing flavor profile ever, the flavors blend well and offer an experience that is totally worth it. 9/10
