a: dark black color. forms a large 3 finger dark brown/tan head that is the fizziest i've ever seen in a beer. fades to nonexistence in about 2 seconds

s: well. that smells like peanut butter. chocolate & peanut butter. dark toffee, black licorice. theres a smell of graham cracker here. dark sugary syrup, and just a hint of toasted malts

t: the taste is similar to the nose. a smooth combination of creamy peanut butter & milk chocolate. theres a hint of dark prunes and raisins in here - but its real slight. there a bit more of the roasted malt character in here than the nose. i can taste a little bit of a harsh bitterness from that toasty-ness. then you're hit with the lactose, which smooths everyone and adds a nice creamy sweetness to the end of this

m: its a syrupy, medium mouthfeel with a big fizzy presence. as with their other stout, the fizziness of the mouthfeel really reminds me of drinking a soda

o: better than the regular stout. the combination of peanut butter/chocolate/graham/lactose in here balances out nicely. its only 5.3% so it drinks pretty easy, yet manages to give a little bit of stickiness in the mouth. normally i don't like the amount of fizziness level that this has, but it actually works well to cut the richness from the peanut butter & chocolate flavors.

Dark stout with a smooth finish with perfect carbonation for the style but the head disappears relatively quick. You can really smell the light roast coffee. The taste is chocolate flavor with very light hint of coffee and peanut butter. I can't taste the hops? I don't like hops and living in San Diego I'd be considered weird but I really can't.

The bottle suggests using the beer in an ice cream float and I will definitely purchase it again and try it!

Nice dark hops, smooth with just a slight taste of peanut butter. Not overbearing where it is gimmicky. A very good choice for a milk stout lover

Grabbed some of this brew at Breakwater Brewing & again at the holy source of all things Belching. Slightly, slightly better at the source.

Pour is pelt brown with a big, burly head. The nose – wow. This is how you go about building smells into a beer, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for the win. I could live on those things. OK, maybe I couldn’t, but I’d like to try.

Peanut Butter Milk Stout, if it tasted like the nose, would be in divine territory. Alas, the sylvan notes of the nose are muted in the taste. Watered down peanuts, mild roast, the distant ringing of chocolate in my ears, but nothing like the full-frontal promise of the nose. A slight hoppy bitterness shadows the aftertaste. Very thick. I like sweets, so I’d have no problem putting down a decent volume of this.

One in a long line of beers that smells like nirvana (without the smoking gun) & tastes good. Still, I chose to have it twice in the span of one week. Bottle up that smell, Beaver!

One of my new favorite beers. The flavor, and aftertaste is perfect. A great smell. You get the peanut butter on the nose and taste. A great beer to pair with a dessert. Some milk, slight milk chocolate notes as well.
