BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: English Sweet / Milk Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is the new and improved Peanut Butter Chocolate Milk Stout. This is a beer that deserved to stand on its own, so we re-branded it and gave it a bit more body. The beer is now 7.1%, but still holds the same flavor profile you all love from years past.

Delicious smell, with lots of peanut butter. Taste is great, with a similar dominance by peanut butter that almost tastes like the beer is a candy melting in your mouth. That said, the feel is a touch lighter than would be ideal, with the slightly thin texture diminishing the experience somewhat. Overall a great beer, especially for the price!

No date on the 22oz bottle.
L: Pours a dark brown with a one finger head that fades away quickly, no noticeable lacing.
S: The label says chocolate peanut butter stout, and that's exactly what it smells like, it's noticeable as soon as you open the bottle.
T: Again, just as the label says, plus a hint of bitter coffee.
F: Medium bodied, lightly carbonated.
O: Surprisingly good, I expected something ridiculously sweet, but that's not the case at. Easy drinking, moderate ABV, thoroughly enjoyable.

Tons of peanut butter on the nose. Smooth and light on the palate. Peanut butter grows through the sip.

Cream, chocolate, roast, dark fruit.

Thin bodied.
