4.41/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

bottle to snifter.

LOOK: thick dark black. full look. small beige head.

aroma: roasted peanut is prominent and phenominal. hazelnut is there also.

TASTE: peanut/hazlenut is dominant again and tasty. some roasty malty bitterness. light marshmallow sweetness.

FEEL; full body, smooth, pretty creamy but not as much as some. Maybe seemingly thinner than full after some time with the minimal carbonation flattening out.

Very tasty stout.

Mouthfeel. Very full, smooth and oily body with little carbonation.
Overall. Delicious.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served in a teku glass from the 22oz bottle.

Appearance: Pointing it super thick dark brown tinted black with a dark tan head which doesn't rise till the beer rises.

Smell: heavy peanut butter. Lingers inside the nostrils...if it had more potency I would score it a little higher but splendid nonetheless.

Taste: Complex sweet chocolate. Definitely two fistfuls peanut butter powder which overpower the subtle marshmallow. I feel like I'm drinking a candy bar, no complaining.

Mouth: Soft carbonation with a ridiculously sticky body. Toffee finish at the end which lingers like brown to coffee.

Overall: Good f'ing brew. I love a good imperial stout but a pastry stout which delivers like a dessert in a glass. Toffee, espresso, peanut butter, marshmallow and brown sugar..what else could you ask for? Salud!

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short tan head that quickly settled down, leaving just a minuscule collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peanut butter and hazelnuts are present in the nose along with notes of marshmallows.
T: The taste follows the smell but has stronger flavors of peanut butter and toasted marshmallows.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied, very slick, and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I thought that the taste of this beer did a very good job at combining all of the flavors together while masking the alcohol.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a thick black ribbon from the bottle, 1" pocked tan head that dissipates to a thick ring, moderate lacing but impressive for the style. Nose is pretty much as advertised - peanut butter (as opposed to, say, dried peanuts or peanut flour) is the first hit during the pour, but I found it burned off after a minute or two. Marshmallow then dominated, but not in an overly sweet, cloying kind of way - much more of a rounded, vanilla aroma. There was an earthier element underneath which I'd buy as residual peanut, hazelnut, or malt.

In terms of flavor, this happily doesn't become a sugar bomb - moderately sweet vanilla marshmallow is the first hit, but there's a significant spicy, bitter dark chocolate base. The finish is even somewhat tannic with ash, raw coffee, and bitter peanut shells. Just a bare hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is rich and full with hint of carbonation. Overall, a nice sweetish stout that adeptly reins it in.

Sid black appearance with medium light carbonation. Body is just above average with a slight thick,slick,creamy feel.
Aroma is marshmallow, peanut butter,hazelnut butter,milk chocolate, mocha,chocolate frosting.
Taste is somewhat sweet ,some coffee dark chocolate bitterness but very mild. Mocha, sugary frosting, dark black coffee that lingers in the aftertaste. There is a little nut butter but not as much in comparison to aroma.
Really nice well done dessert beer that's worth a try.

A Tavour treat. Pours a black color with a minimal tan head that lasts quite a while. Aroma is sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is also sweet; caramel, vanilla, chocolate, marshmallow and peanuts. Enjoyable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22 oz bottle

Pours opaque black, dark tan head dissipates to a ring.

Aroma of biscuit, caramel, peanut, cocoa, hazelnut, and cookie.

Flavor is of cocoa, coffee, peanut, hazelnut, vanilla, cookie, toast, marshmallow, and pecan.

Full body, tingly carbonation on the tongue. Warms a bit going down.

Delicious, very drinkable. Not overly sweet despite the description. Instead surprisingly well balanced. A real treat.

22oz bottle, dated 12/3/20. Sent up from South Carolina from my brother

Pours black and thick like used motor oil. Dark brown colored head that eventually fades. Big toasty marshmallow aroma, the peanut and hazelnut and in there but more subdued. Taste is similar, with somw chocolatey malt. On the sweet side, but not cloying. Full bodied, thick and smooth feel.

My personal taste rates this much higher than most reviews to date.

Look - On par with most stouts....nothing special.

Smell - Kind of bland and with the wrong tilt of glass there's a bit off-putting vodka/chemical thing going on.

Taste - Very redeeming....lots of chocolate, fudge, graham cracker, peanuts, marshmallow, molasses, a bit of earth & charcoal.

Overall very good beer, especially considering price point is $5 or $6 lower than Mexican Cake.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Ordered from Tavour. Chilled and poured into an imperial pint glass.

Look: dark, almost black. half finger size head, small lacing
Smell: sweet, peanut butter, light hazelnut, vanilla if you reach
Taste: sweet and sticky on the front with sweet peanuty goodness, marshmallow (kind of like lucky charms marshmallows, kinda processed) and vanilla peak in the middle, peanut butter and hints of hazelnut. small bitterness. Think a liquid fluffernutter.
Feel: full feel, slight tickle of carbonation, sticky

Bren loves hazelnut and I am a big dark/peanut butter kind guy. They hide the ABV well (10%) with sweetness and peanut butter. We thought this was a good sipping beer, not a gulping beer. Overall a good sweet stout.

Oh westbrook what have you done? Shimmering black with a finger of brown foam, but unfortunately this was the highlight. Smell is super roasted with nutty accents and burnt sugar edging, plenty of booze too. Heavy handed and bitter but acceptable. The taste is a disaster in comparison: ashtray and metal meet roasted malt and nutty dirt, powerfully bitter, no sweetness detected and it is hot with booze. No balance and frankly not very tasty either. Feel has tons of booze leakage, malting is over done, adjuncts are heavy but don't translate on the palate well, just a heavy, chewy, messy lug of a beer.

Blind taste you can almost tell it’s a Westbrook but with a serious extra kick of peanut butter. Fairly smooth and pleasurable but as said, loaded with peanut butter smell and taste. Too much adjunct flavor for my palate.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear thick viscous jet black in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and very faint dark chestnut brown + dark cola brown + dark garnet red colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy very dark tan head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of peanut butter along with moderate aromas of marshmallow over the top of moderate aromas of roasted + toasted + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. Hints of earthy hop aromas.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of roasted + toasted + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of peanut butter along with moderate flavors of marshmallow. Finally there is a light amount of earthy hops. Moderate amounts of lingering roasty bitterness.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth with a touch of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Definitely a big beer but with decently well hidden alcohol and a fairly smooth mouthfeel - more of a slow sipper but I definitely enjoyed sipping on it over the evening. Really nice flavors and aromas from the peanut butter + hazelnut + marshmallow without cloying sweetness.
