BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.10%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
What started as a special treatment to celebrate our 5th Anniversary, is now a small scale batch! We started with the base recipe for PM Dawn American Stout, then slightly dialed back the ratio of cold brew Italian Roast from Barrington to allow the heavy dose of Peanut Butter to find it's perfect place in the flavor profile and balance the beer.

Peanut Butter PM Dawn presents an opaque black with brown head and lacing. A strong nose of freshly ground peanuts, chocolate peanut butter milkshake and hints of dark plum from the coffee, is followed by a full bodied palate, rich with complementary flavors of roasty coffee, swirling dark chocolate/cocoa and finishes with delicious peanut butter. Peanut Butter PM Dawn conjures memories of one of our favorite early brew-day quick breakfasts: peanut butter toast and coffee. If you haven't tried it, you should!

MALT: American 2-row Barley, Caramunich, C-60, C-120, Dextrine, Black (Patent), Roasted Barley, Special B, Chocolate Malt, Peanut Butter

It's all about the taste with this one. The coffee and the peanut butter work perfectly together. Out of all the peanut butter stouts I've had, this one absolutely nails it by not being too sweet, thanks to the roast of the coffee. Perhaps my favorite stout that Trillium has ever offered.

16oz can, snifter glass. Dark black body, one finger offwhite head, short retention and no lacing. Smell is massive peanut butter cup, milk chocolate, touch of light coffee roast, more nutty peanut butter and a touch of earth. Damn. This nails the peanut butter cup aroma perfectly on the palate- where there is a massive peanut butter cup quotient made up of the nutty peanut butter, big milk chocolate, a touch of lactose, more chocolate malt, more peanut butter and a light amount of roasted barley and coffee. The coffee is mostly hidden and seems to provide mostly balancing astringency. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied, creamy and viscous, literally tastes like drinking Reese's PBC's. Love it.

poured into a tulip glass via can

color is licorice black

smell is overwhelmingly peanut butter and faint espresso coffee

taste is a blast of PB, followed by roasted coffee and faint milk chocolate

carbonation is high (surprisingly)

mouthfeel is full and thick

this might be the most forward PB stout I've had and I loved every drop of it..makes an already great stout even better!!

Coffee black with oddly clear brown edges and a tan fizzy blanket that loudly dies off to a slick headless surface surprisingly quickly.

Smell is chunky and dry off-brand peanut butter and actually--possibly from a combination of the malt and yeast--a wacky hint of grape jelly. Coming back to the aroma after tasting it, this odd element may actually be due to the booze, as it's a brandy sort of character. The coffee bean may also be a bit fruity, but it's mostly peanut butter on the nose.

Taste is earthy coffee with faint hints of Reese's globs before an untimely and overbearing sting of booze. The peanut butter really does seem chunky and dry, and actually, yes, as if spread on a piece of toast as the description above mentions. However, it really does have a potent brandy-like booze to it that is unacceptable to me.

Feel is slick and thin with a light but firm carbonation before a sharply hot, semi-dry finish.

I actually like Hoppin' Frog Infusion A by a wide margin. PB PM Dawn is just less balanced on every front.
