Term Oil Fluffernutter begins with a special blend of Imperial Stout that aged in bourbon barrels for well over a year. To that already decadent base, we added dry roasted peanuts, peanut butter, marshmallow, and vanilla beans to create the liquid version of the classic Fluffernutter sandwich.

Had on tap. When did Iowa become part of New England? Because the hype on this one is absurd. Sludgy brown tints to the jet black body, no head save a thin brown ring. Aromas of peanuts, marshmallow, vanilla, bourbon, dark wood, and dark chocolate malt, lovely but not the sharpest iteration of this combo I have had. Taste is sugary peanut butter with a hint of marshmallow meets and partially eclipses the warm and full barrel character, malts round out with big vanilla. Feel is warm, very smooth and refined, not as sugary as it tastes, full bodied and heavy yet not unwieldy. Good? Yes. Top 100 imperial stout? No way

5oz draft pour in a snifter. heavy peanut butter aroma with a tinge of marshmallow / vanilla and not much barrel. taste follows with a little bit of barrel sting on the finish. definitely peanut forward but with some chocolate from the base stout. thick, heavy mouthfeel. good stuff!

When it comes to pastry stouts, Toppling Goliath is certainly not fluffing around. But with a massively dense Imperial Stout taste and texture at its base, they front load the beer with marshmallow and peanut for a beer that's all fluff.

Jet black and pouring like tar, Term Oil Fluffernutter releases a loose dark tarnish brown froth that dissolves quickly because of the peanut oils to render the appearance still with espresso likeness. As its decadent scent of peanut, chocolate, coffee, sweet cream and bourbon aspects rise the the nose the impressions of fluffernutter pastry snacks paired with java take a stronghold. Devilishly sweet on the tongue, its rich and viscous sweetness starts with molasses and invites other malt influences of toffee, heavy cream, vanilla, confectioner's sugar and caramel to further seduce the tastebuds.

As its more roasty edges give the sweet malts a robust tone, there's a sweeter espresso taste that comes with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, burnt cream and roasted nuttiness to remind the middle palate that there's still a stout driving this flavor bus. A moderately bitter balance steps in late to take an edge off of the sweetness and to give the roasted flavors more of a dark coffee impression.

Lavishly full, pleasantly cloying and celebrating the textures of cake batter, the heavy beer is a slow sipping affair, relegated to after dinner digestives. Don't look at it to pair with dessert but rather to replace dessert altogether. Finishing decidedly sweet Fluffernutter extends with an infinite malty sweet taste with those peanut and bourbon flavors in tow.

8oz pour in snifter. Mack truck motor oil hue, thick and sticky on glass. Thin Mocha froth head.

The olfactory nose exudes of peanut butter, chocolate, and Hershey MMs.
Mouthfeel smooth, Creamy and lip licking sweetness. Velvet on palate.

Taking time for pour to succom to room temperature, the Bourbon barrel aging most delicate and tantalizing rises to spin flavors not noticed on cold pour.

Stout drinkers heads up... Let it warm!

The brew team in Iowa... Salute!!

Poured very rich black with no carbonation. Has a tremendous barrel heat with big peanut butter and sweet marshmallow. Very nice finish of vanilla rounds this out perfectly.
