Reviewed from notes. Had on nitro-tap at Rapp Brewing Company tasting room. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Very dark brown, opaque, with just over a finger's worth of tan head and the serene nitro-tap movement in the beer.

S: Chocolate, peanut butter, hazelnut, and lactose creamy sweetness. The peanut butter aroma is obvious but not overpowering.

T: Big peanut butter flavor, good dark milk chocolate hit, lactose, and maybe just an impression of a dark fruit sweetness near the swallow.

M: Creamy mouthfeel (nitro), medium-bodied for stout, but is lacking some of the heft one might look for. The alcohol is more noticeable than expected for the listed ABV but doesn't detract.

O: Very enjoyable. Perhaps lacking some complexity keeps it from being a world-beater, but really good.

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

Appearance: Arrives with a fudge color capped by a classic nitro head; nice lacing action

Smell: Chocolate, peanut butter, nuts

Taste: The peanut butter flavor is quite forward, blending in with the chocolate; some lactose to add a milk chocolate flavor appears in the middle; some nutskin acridity in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation

Overall: Chocolate peanut butter beers seem to be a growing trend and this one is well-executed

This is everything I would want from a Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout. It's rich, smooth and very approachable. Had this on tap at the Brewery. Occasionally they allow this for growlers. A must try beer when visiting Tampa FL. Hint: Ask to have some raspberry added - PB&J!

On tap at the brewery.
Black and opaque. Rich, wonderful nutty aroma.
The flavor is good but doesn't quite match the quality of the fine aroma.
Near medium body with adequate light carbonation. A fuller body would be better.

O: a very good flavored stout.

Poured from a 32 ounce growler into a nonic 20 ounce glass.

The head is absolutely negligible on this and I was thinking to myself, "Was this a cask beer ?" as I pour it into the glass. There's a viscous liquor leaving the growler, pitch-black like oil, so that's impressive and improves my opinion of the appearance. 3.5

The nose definitely has an aroma that suggests peanut butter, but it's also a bit synthetic. Notes of coffee and chocolate lurk and add some dimension. 3.5

Okay, well I still get a synthetic sort of peanut butter flavor but it tastes good, especially with the more evident chocolate flavor on the palate. The finish lingers like coffee. Creamy vanilla and caramel are in there throughout but take a while to perceive. 4

The beer feels a bit undercarbonated, but the creaminess and viscosity are excellent. Sweetness is definitely the word here, though hops give a touch of bitterness and reign things in before this becomes a sugary mess. 3.5

Pretty solid but a few defects are apparent.

Wow! How did he pull this off! Reece's peanut butter cups in a glass. The smell and taste of it is out of this world. A must try if you are ever in Tampa Bay. 4.90
