On tap at Fifty Seven Degrees. this just wants a scoop of vanilla ice cream floated on top. I don't really taste peanuts right off. It's more like a lot of cocoa and a lovely rich, roasted flavor. Beautiful tall head in the pint shaker, as I asked the bartended not to top it off. Dark auburn brown in color. Plenty of spritz on the tongue.

Eventually there is a little nutty taste slipping into the sweet burnt sugar malt flavors. Quite an interesting brew-- you just need to be in the mood. Really smooth and sweet without being sugary. An undertone of bitterness keeps it from cloying, but without raising much attention to the subtle hops. One of the best flavored stouts I've had, and without a doubt the best Milk Stout. But crazy.

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.

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.
