Nocterra Brewing Company Take A Hike: S'mores Stout
What the brewers say
"Take A Hike: S'mores Stout has nice roasted notes balanced by the sweetness of Chocolate, Marshmallow & Vanilla. The perfect campfire dessert."
What our panel thought
“On the nose, sweet, almost extract-like, chocolate notes, coupled with hints of vanilla and caramel. More-genuine chocolate and caramel notes in the flavor are complemented by a waffle-like bready note. Nice dose of bitterness balances things. A little thin.”
What our editors thought
“Bold, but slightly kludgy, s’more notes in the nose pull chocolate and marshmallow through a slightly medicinal, artificial lens. The sip is a bit thin for a beer of this scale, more ‘flavored’ than ‘flavorful.’”
