Graciously shared by GodOfThunder! From the growler, pours black with a thin tan head. The nose is PEANUT BUTTER CUP! Peanut butter in the nose, chocolate, roasty, slightly sweet, wow. In flavor roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, peanuts come through more as peanuts and less as PB. Medium thickness, low carb, a little chalky in the mouth. Very impressive.

Growler... Pours very dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Smells like peanut butter and chocolate with a bit of cardboard. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Layers of peanut butter, chocolate and caramel. A touch of cardboard oxidation. Very roasty, moderately bitter finish. Interesting! I wonder how the brewer made this happen with all the fat in peanuts and peanut butter. I can’t believe this beer had a head at all. Maybe brewed with Bunchosia Argentea (Peanut Butter Fruit) instead of peanuts? Who knows? Who cares? It works! <b>Kudos to GodOfThunder for sharing!</b>

This amazing beer was very generously shared in the form of a growler by GodofThunder. You sir, kickass.
Pours dark dark brown with a tiny head. Huge nose of peanuts, faint coffee roast and some chocolate. Flavor starts off much like the mystery stout with roasty chocolate and coffee and then you just get slammed in the face by tons of peanuts. Really like drinking a Reese’s cup. This is completely and utterly unique and in the world of brewing thats a rare thing. Amazing.

Thanks to Northernbrews for getting me the growler. Awesome beer. Take the Mystery Stout, a full flavored stout with bitter chocolate flavors, mix in some oats and a ton of peanuts and you get this. I only mention the Mystery Stout because I also had it and it almost seems like it was the base beer for this. The aroma is overwealming with peanut butter and chocolate, like a peanut butter cup. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth with a strong roast, bitter chocolate taste and a peanutty finish. The flavors mix in a strange, but delicious, way. This is incredible.

Thanks to HailSquishFace for sending this one my way. Did not get much in the way of Reese like others have suggested, but still a good brew. Aroma is crushed peanuts and oatmeal, with a touch of cream. Flavor is oats, with a touch of chocolate, and lactose. Faint note of hoppy pine. Very akin to Breakfast stout, with less coffee and more nuts. Wish I could get these things on tap; as good as they are in the growler, I just know theyd be exceptional fresh!

Pours dark brown with a bit of brown head. I get all of the coffee and chocolate and oats in the nose. All the aromas are there but not as pronounced as a Breakfast Sout. Medium body with a big coffee finish.

2008 MBG Winter Fest: Deep brown hue with a frothy beige head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, peanut, plum, anise, herbal hops, toasted malt, oatmeal and a hint of coffee esters. The taste is a cool balance of fruit, chocolate, and toasted malts (not much peanut on the palate). Some grassy and herbal notes as well along with some coffee. The mouth feel is lush and oily, medium-bodied and very smooth. A nice beer and twist on the style. Mikey Likey.

Actual peanuts used huh? Great. This kind of comes out like a Reese’s with peanuts that linger with you for a bit longer than when the beer is gone. Roasty and creamy. I only wish it had a higher alcohol bill to toast this peanut butter sammy.
