Biggie S'mores - When Big Just Isn't Good Enough

Sometimes, big just isn't big enough. Sure, there are super sizes, but when it comes right down to it, big just fails. You need something big in terms of flavor and also in terms taste - something that is not just large in terms of flavor but brings other tastes to bear.  Big tastes, say, from the campfire, tastes that remind us of really good flavors from the past and that have been brought back, if even only for a little while, to soothe our worried brows and put us into a state of nirvana.

Biggie S'mores Imperial Stout
Biggie S'mores Imperial Stout does just that. Brewed by Three Notch'd Brewing Company (946 Grady Avenue, Charlottesville, VA 22903 V: 434-293-0610, this imperial stout brings us to the edge of the campfire for tails of spooks and goblins. The brew is introduced by a strong graham cracker taste and then it mellows to a chocolate-y concoction that tastes like marsh mellows, without giving away that it has no marsh mellow content in it. It has a warm and fresh feeling throughout the pour - once it has you, it never really lets go. It really "feels" good.

The ABV is 8% and the IBU are 40. According to the Web:
This rich, creamy, Imperial Stout is made with 80 boxes of Honey Maid Graham Crackers.  The special roast barley used, gives the beer a rich, chocolate-y backing and the lactose gives the beer as sweet, smooth finish.

The release date is November 19, 2015, so it is a fairly recently addition to the beer world.

I put it this way into Untappd:  
How do it describe it? It is S'mores, plain and simple with a few chocolate chips. You just want to sit back and take the time to drink it in. So good!

I gave it a score of 4.75 on Untappd.
