Notes / Commercial Description:
Hold On To Sunshine is a rich and delicious stout intended to be savored and enjoyed as we enter the cool Autumn months here in New England. Brewed with Pale and Chocolate malts, Lactose, Coffee, Cacao, and Peanut Butter, it exhibits notes of rich milk chocolate, dark brown sugar, creamy espresso, and chocolate covered peanut butter cups. A luxurious mouthfeel and creamy body contribute to a beer that feels much bigger than it is - a decadent treat and one that won't overwhelm you with heaviness, yet is loaded with delicious bold flavors that express themselves as it warms. Life can come at us fast and hit us with unexpected hardship, inducing stress, fear, anger, confusion, sadness, and uncertainty. But together we must find solace and comfort in each other, and in something wonderful, equal, and free for everyone to hold on to - Sunshine. For Lauren.

Nose is dark and milk chocolate with a hint of peanut butter. Creamy, decadent. A liquified peanut butter cup with a shot of black coffee, in all the best ways. Long, delicious finish.

09/2017 - incredible nose of peanut butter, coffee, vanilla, and chocolate; flavors are akin, with more roast and a touch of bitterness coming out; the body is sadly thin - like TWSS. Yum still!

Didn’t get as much peanut butter as I was hoping here but tasty nonetheless. I also feel like TH is splitting hairs with their stouts. They gotta get out of their comfort zone ImO

L -- Very dark black body with a finger and a half of brown head produced with fairly gentle pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Coffee syrup, peanut, hazelnut, walnut, milk chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, booze
T -- Tastes like straight up melted coffee ice cream. Hint of umami and rich nuttiness
F -- Soft, silky, and creamy. Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Pretty minimal bitterness throughout, but could be a little thicker
O -- Reminds me of Trillium's PB PM Dawn. Quite crushable
