Brewery: Barrel House Z

Campfire King

A hint of sugary graham cracker goodness comes through in the aftertaste of Barrel House Z's Imperial S'more Porter.

Type of Beer: Imperial Porter

ABV: 7.4%

Campfire King, an Imperial S'more Porter brewed by Barrel House Z

If the flavor of the (Limited Release) Campfire King could be described as a shape, it would be rounded (not a shape at all). Smooth, creamy, sugary, rich, lavish, maybe a hint of roast coffee. The beer can artwork suggests S'more all the way. The Salvador Dali dripping cocoa browns and whites are 2/3rds the way through to the Campfire S'more. The brown lettering is the can's nod to the graham cracker, we suppose (?).

Anyway, bringing this Imperial S'more Porter to your next campfire, firepit, on-street car torching (criminal, and not advised at all), will certainly make you king of that campfire. Who needs actual Smores when you can drink this?

Barrel House Z Beer Description

Our indulgent, s'more-loving porter—think chocolate, slightly roast-y char, graham cracker, vanilla-marshmallow, creamy. This is, however, a limited release, so the King's reign will be benevolent, but short. Come celebrate! We're serving up s'more fondue in honor of the big guy's big day.

Final thoughts on Campfire King

Great for an Autumn evening under the stars with a standalone firepit in the yard. We do not recommend this beer for Spring or Summer. Fall? Winter? Have at it. Barrel House Z does a great job marrying the S'more to the Porter and the Porter to the S'more.
