Bought a 22oz bottle and poured into a ceramic 1L stein. Lots of PB and marshmallow on the nose, with a little smoky chocolate. First taste is classic AoL, not too chewy and nice hints of PB and chocolate, but the marshmallow comes through like a bulldozer.

The original AoL is one of my favorite STL beers, and the addition of some marshmallow sounded pretty good, but it ended up being just too sweet and artificial for me. I'll happily stick with the original.

Pours an effervescent cola/chestnut color with a thumb of mocha colored head. Some head retention, even less lacing

S: Peanut butter & hazel nuts

T: Follows the nose, plenty of marshmallow as well, some dryness too. Some roastyness mixes in with peanut & marshmallow once this warms. Finishes with plenty of fake-ish marshmallow & peanut taste

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation

There's a bit of artificial taste to this & makes me not recommend this

Very dark brown color with light carbonation and a medium head. The head color was light tan. The aroma is fantastic with the toasted marshmallow smell very forward. The feel is medium body, but a little too syrupy.

This is a good stout and the Peanut Butter cup aftertaste is spot on. All of that added with the marshmallow aroma and taste, you have a really unique stout.

Poured form a 16 ounce can into a 4 Hands mason jar glass. I was pretty excited for this one because somehow I became a fan of their BP chocolate stout. I'm a big fan of 4 Hands in general(drank this one at home though), I've been to the brewery more than I've visited any others and the staff is great there. The marshmallow pairs perfectly with everything else in their. Not as sweet as you'd think, you can taste everything but nothing is overpowering very subtle but in a good way. Any fan of sweet/milk stouts should definitely give this one a try!

22oz bottle. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of bubbly foam. It left minimal lacing. It smelled of peanut butter, chocolate, marshmallow and some smokiness. It tasted of chocolate, creamy peanut butter and toasted marshmallow.
