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

This beer is the reason i first made the trek to Rapp. After hearing glowing local reviews and being a stout lover i had to try it for myself. CPB Stout has turned me in to a Rapp fan for good. I have purchased this beer on tap and in growler form and as a negative this like many other nitro born beers does not translate well in growler after 2 days. It does flatten out like one would expect, however on tap it more than makes up for it, besides they have numerous other beers that do well in growlers. This is my favorite beer that Rapp offers to date and is a staple in my visits there.

Beautiful dark brown, almost black pour with a tan, milk-chocolate head and lacing characteristic of a nitro pour. I was immediately hit with the aroma of chocolate, peanut butter, and hazelnuts. Luxurious, velvety mouth feel with a sweet finish I imagined would be cloying toward the end, but wasn't. Surprisingly, this is a beer you could have a few of.

Really a phenomenal beer.

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!

Beautiful dark brown beer with two finger head served at the brewery on draft in a snifter during Tampa Bay beer week. Mostly peanut butter aroma with some chocolate, coffee, and roast in thebackground. The taste is chocolate and peanut butter with a toasty backbone to balance the sweetness. Medium bodied and fuller than I would expect for 6.5 abv.

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.

Pours very dark with no light passing through, no head on top. Has an overpowering smell of peanut butter and Alcohol smell is present. Has a sweet taste probably from the chocolate. A little watered down.

Was like drinking the leftover milk from a bowl of peanut butter cocoa puffs! The smell is spot on as it's titled. The taste is impressive with lots of chocolate and some peanut butter with nice feel. A little too sweet for me to drink a lot of, but I still drink a lot of.

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

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.

Some really love this beer. My brother claims it to be his favorite beer of all time. I find the chocolate and peanut taste to be "fake" -- almost like it is added after-the-fact like pouring hershey syrup into a beer.

Black with minimal tan head.

Peanut better is proudly prominent, unlike many other PB-advertised beers from larger breweries. There is less chocolate to go around. But there is a hint of jelly on the back end, taking this from a PB&C to the deceptively different direction of a PB&J stout.

Round feel, but also fizzy and light as well. Not as substantial as I like in my PB&C stouts.
