6 reviews, this is rarer than I thought.
12 oz bottle, some sort of date code, I can't decipher it.

Pours chocolate-y brown, forms a silky dark black body, with a creamy head of 1/2 finger, receding to a stable thin ring.

Aroma...well, I can't think of anything closer to an actual peanut butter cup than this. Smells the same from the glass as it does the bottle. No off-aromas. No earthiness. It's straight melted Reese's. A well-deserved 5.

The flavor is a hell of a base stout, very clean, easy drinking, with roasted malt and deep coffee, slight cream. The peanut butter comes afterwards, in a lovely nutty, semi-sweet fashion. Then it drops off a bit in favor of roasted malt. That's okay, it buoys. A little Reese’s Pieces on the finish. Sweet but not over the top. It’s no pastry stout, and for that I am thankful. Great balance of coffee, peanut butter, and roasted malt.

Feel is slick and oily with a good dose of roasty dryness. A clean finish. Medium bodied, a little on the thin side. Minimal warmth.

Overall, simply stunning. As a session stout it doesn't get much better than this on the peanut butter end of things. I could drink three in a row easily and be satisfied for the night. An underrated champion of a style variant that gets murdered often.

Pours dark brown, with red hues when you put it to the light. Has a big tan head. Smell is of smelling a jiff jar. Taste is watered down peanut butter. Mouthfeel is light for a stout. Overall, smell and look is nice, but, could be better with taste.

Really great concept of a milk stout with a strong chocolate background, coupled with a strong peanut flavor. Really nice balance between the two, with the peanut side stronger. Smooth mouthfeel - a little on the flatter side but not badly so. Nose is all peanuts with a hint of chocolate. Overall, a really well made beer that is markedly different from many others.

On tap. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled strongly of peanut butter, some milk chocolate and caramel. Peanut heavy beer with subtle chocolate notes.

Black in color with no light penetration. Fingernail of brown on top. Light lacing. Smells like a Reese’s peanut butter cup! They nailed the aroma. The taste is more dark chocolate and peanut butter and it seems to all hit at the front of the palate and then it really drops off. The mouth is a tad oily and dry from the fatty peanut butter.
