Draft at the source during RBWG 2015. Holy cow, the peanut butter really dominates this one in both the aroma and the taste, on a decent roast background.

Leighton (13853) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2015. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Big peanut butter and chocolate aroma - yes, tis true. Medium sweet flavor, rich and novel, with light bitter cocoa, oily peanut butter. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly chewy. Nicely balanced on the finish with more earnest chocolate and peanut butter character. Well done.

Draft. Pours dark brown. Nose of fresh peanut butter, chocolate and light chocolate bread. Taste is similar but not as upfront with the peanut butter. Medium body.

daknole (10255) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Very dark brown pour, brown head. And the flavor? This is simply a liquid peanut M&M. Pure and simple...taste it and experience a wonderful flavor.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Draft... This beer rocks!… Motor oil-black pour with no head. Smells like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with a bonus touch of vanilla. Score! Full-bodied and velvety with feather-soft carbonation. Tastes pretty much like it smells. Some dark cocoa bitterness, but mainly this is a boutique beer that delivers on what its name promises - sweet, malty and milk chocolaty notes mingle perfectly with that patented Reese’s defatted peanut butter taste. Awesome!

Tap at Rapp. Nitro looking foam with excellent retention. Deep brown pour. Nose is crazy intense peanut butter, wow. Taste is Reese’s peanut butter cup, cocoa mix. Palate feels just a bit chalky.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
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.
