I tried this beer at the Beer Hunter in La Quinta, CA. The bar keep gave us a small sample as the barrel was winding down. It poured an opaque dark with tan head that did not leave any lace. The scent had touches chocolate and peanut. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with Reese's cup presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with smooth carbonation. Overall its a very good drinking stout and definitely worth a taste.

I don't usually drink sweet dessert beers, but am trying to expand my horizons. Im glad I did, this was really good. Tastes like drinking liquid peanut butter cups in a glass. Pretty impressed on how they got the peanut butter through on this one.

I did not think I'd like this because it seemed a bit schticky. I've been tempted into buying key lime pie beer, blueberry cobbler beer, etc. and been let down each time by the taste. This beer tastes exactly like a chocolate peanut butter cup!

I've given this to other folks who swore they hated flavored beers and they loved it. I had it on draft in San Diego and will say that it is much better on draft than in cans where it can taste a bit syrupy. However even in the can, this is a crowd pleaser at parties.

Unfortunately their distribution is terrible outside of San Diego and they hate craft beer being readily available so even in Los Angeles it's hard to find.

This is a thick, sweetish beer with a bitter undercurrent with chocolate and amazingly, peanut butter being the prevalent taste. It's quite a Stout and has a pillow of tan foam sitting atop dark chocolate colored brown body. Thick mouth feel and it goes down smooth.

You've got to watch yourself with this because it sneaks up on you ... When you are drinking a sweet beer that tastes like candy, it's easy to drink fast. They also make a special edition Mexican Chocolate Stout which tastes very similar but without a pronounced peanut butter taste. Aces all around for this one. Find it on draft and you'll never want to leave that bar.

Oh sweet sweet peanut butter beaver. You are peanut butter goodness in my mouth.

You are a desert with a naughty wicked side that leaves you with more then a belly full of calories.

In conclusion, if you like a milk stout and you like peanut butter you should probably try this beer.

On tap at the Yard House in Vegas. Beautiful dark brown color with brown and tan head and minimal lacing. Smell is peanut butter and some chocolate. Had on nitro, so had a creamy mouthfeel and heavenly chocolate/peanut butter flavor. This is the most flavorful stout that I have had. On the sweet side. Almost like a liquid dessert. Excellent beer. Wish I could get this at home in Baltimore. Try this if you can. How can I smuggle a growler of this to Baltimore?

Bottled 12/27/17, consumed 2/7/18

Poured dark brown with about an inch of bubbly head that left no lacing.

Aroma is roasted peanuts, toasted oats, some coffee and chocolate to fill it out. Rich and pleasant.

Taste is smooth peanut butter and coffee, chocolate, some roasted malt.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, smooth and silky.

Overall very impressed with this flagship offering from Belching Beaver. A tasty, easy-drinking low-ABV stout. Recommended.

A beautiful dark color. The smell is identical to budget protein powder with peanut butter. I’ve never liked a beer that smelled so awful. The taste is somewhat redeemable actually, but maybe not completely. The first few drinks were tasty but after that, it falls off and gave me a stomach ache.&
