As Matt Kemp blasts a huge solo bomb to sink "America's sweethearts" the Cardinals, Raul is sippin on this bad boi and feelin' mighty fine.

Pours a jet black that is almost blacker than black like Conrad going into the Heart Od Darkness.

Smell...oh my. Like Lucille Ball making little Rickey a peanut butter sandwich; literally, almost dead on.

Taste? Alright, alright...not bad. Same as the nose. Strong peanut butter and not much else.

Mouthfeel is a bit of a letdown. Like Getting a a meatball sub at Subway with only 4 balls - it's a bit lacking. Thin, a bit over-carbonated... but not terrible.

This is an interesting brew, my peeps. I suggest y'all peep it.

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.

Thanks to Orthodoxkardia for this beer.

22 oz bottle. Pours a black color with a small layer of brown head. Fantastic and unique aroma. Lots of lacing. Chocolate milk, peanuts, cocoa, caramel, honey, coffee and roasted malts. The taste is somewhat reminiscent of Reese's Pieces. Peanut butter, dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and sweet lactose. Finishes with more chocolate milk and peanut butter. Not overly sweet. Lightly carbonated with a light mouthfeel. Somehow this beer works very well. Overall, one of the best Milk Stouts I have ever had.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy brown head that completely disappears quickly.

The aroma is roast dark chocolate, peanut butter, and oats with a little coffee.

The flavor is roast chocolate, peanut butter and some slightly acidic coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery with little carbonation.

Overall, a very interesting beer. Would be better if better carbonated.

Hard to write a proper review in Hawaii.

Pours near black with decent tan head. Aroma and taste both focus on chocolate, caramel candy and peanut butter. Slight kick at the finish.

Moderate carbonation with a medium body that is not plagued by the thinness that many lower abv Stouts have.

Unique and delicious, partly because the taste is nicely balanced and not overrun by peanut butter.

Large shared bottle pours near black with a decent head.
The aroma and flavor both feature peanut butter, but not so much as to mask the dark malts. Lovely roasted malt + roasted peanuts flavor.

Very smooth, full body with acceptable light carbonation.

A lively khaki tan head quickly dissipated into bubbles around the edge of the glass.

Aroma is very intense! Strong nutter butter vibe. Which I guess would translate to sweet peanut butter.

First sip and all I get is the sweet peanut butter. Like a said, nutterbutter. But the stout malt and roastiness blends with the peanut to give it a butterfinger type taste. Some bitterness and coffee notes that blend nicely with the overwhelming peanut butter.

Mouthfeel is rightly creamy with low carbonation. Drinks a little bit bigger than its 5.3%, which is always good.

Overall I really enjoyed it for what it was. It's a sweet desert stout. Not something I would always grab for when looking for a stout, but I can imagine many times when I'd want to sip one of these and experiment with pairing it to other foods.
