3.98/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Received in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice dark rich brown nearly black hue with a one finger mocha head that fades to leave a nice thin blanket and light lacing.

S - Aromas nice nice roasty malts, milk chocolate, and crushed peanuts. Its super nutty, not peanut butter nutty though, just smells like a nice whiff from a jar of peanuts. Actually overpowers the chocolate some, which is rather impressive.

T - Taste is a tasty milk stout for sure. Nice and creamy milk chocolate, light burnt sugar and sweet malts and super creamy thanks to the lactose. My issue though, as tasty as this is, is the peanuts are rather lacking. The nuttiness is there, but, I'm struggling to say it is peanuts and just just well...generic nuts. No noticeable alcohol.

M - Mouthfeel is very nice and creamy. The lactose really helps out.

O - Overall this is a tasty milk stout, for sure, but the peanuts on the taste are rather lacking. Wish the nose translated over more.

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.

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.
