Pours thick unclear dark brownish black with a white sandy head. Aroma brings sweet nutty wafers. Flavor brings nutty wafers as the peanut butter profile on a smooth body.

Growler share thanks to Troy224. Nose is a total peanut butter Reese cup bomb. A little flat. Chocolate flavor is a little bitter. Nose has much more peanut butter than flavor. Very solid though.

Growler share thanks to beechner224. Deep dark black pour. Aroma is husky chocolate, peanuts, roast, and moar p-nuts. Flavor is delicious...sweet chocolate, peanut butter, grainy, and more chocolate. Very good peanuts butter beer. Peanut flavor is great and would pete again.

Nice and creamy (on nitro), just the right amount of peanut butter to compliment the chocolately taste of the stout, not too sweet just the right amount of bitterness to offset......the abv was completely hidden

On tap. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Nuttiness too. Taste is chocolate, peanuts, yummy. Thick mouthfeel. Really good.

I hope they make an imperial version of this. Delicious but a little thin in mouthfeel. Reeses peanut butter cup, very slight roastiness and coffee.

Nitro version on tap. Pours dark with a mild creamy foam head that dissipates. The aroma is like a reese?s peanut butter cup. In taste, I noticed a soft bitterness, cocoa, butter toffee, heavy sweet crystal malts, weak roasted carmel malt flavor, and the finish had a pleasant dryness to it. Overall this is worth a try for any peanut butter or stout fan.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This absolutely surprising PButter Stout whips up quite the dessert with its decadent peanut presence, well-positioned chocolate and caramel in a velvety mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam decorates the darkness.
-The aroma is impressively brimming with peanuts. Thankfully, the flavour profile is not as generous as that would certainly have impeded on drinkability.
-You can imagine a smoky character too, especially if you are fond of smokiness.
-Light hop bitterness is perfect since there isn’t too much sweetness to balance out in the finish.
-This is not haphazardly-put-together novelty item. It’s a real beer done with talent.
-When the nitro has had time to come out of the beer (growler), the peanut butter aroma is not nearly as decadent, but a jam-like fruitiness takes center stage with the chocolate. An intriguing study of the effects of nitrogen could be done with this brew.
On tap at the brewery taproom and from a growler.

Tap at rapp. Black pour with creamy tan head that lasts and lingers. Huge chocolate peanut butter aroma. Just like a receses candy. Taste is dryer than aroma which works well. Finishes with bitter chocolate notes. Very drinkable.
