Pitch black, one finger mocha head
Aroma of peanut butter, milk, cocoa
The taste follows with a quite dry impression
The mouthfeel is thin and moderatly carbonated
Overall not really a dessert beer despites the peanut added

Bomber, bottled on 2/5/18. Pours opaque black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is peanut butter, chocolate, and sweet malt. Taste is basically the same. I passed this one over a few times because peanut butter beer didn’t sound good but I’m glad I finally tried it. Peanut butter isn’t my go to beer flavor but it’s not bad and I can see it pairing well with some foods.

Pours black like motor oil, not as thick and pb of a mouth feel as I had wished for otherwise decent beer

Poured from a can with small tan head and solid dark body. Smells of coffee and peanut butter. Taste is of coffee, like a ground bean with none of the gritty texture, very smooth, and an undercurrent of peanut. I expected more of a peanut butter flavor. Regardless, I enjoyed the smooth taste and feel.

Hmmm...not good. I looked for a date on the bottle but none was to be found - hoping that this was a fluke bad beer from a brewery I respect. I love peanut butter and I love stouts so I had high hopes for this beer. And the high ratings here got me excited. Alas, I was sorely disappointed. Started off good - nice dark brown color with loads of fluffy tan head and some dissipating sheets of lingering lacing. Smells strongly of peanut butter, but with a little sourness and some weaker malt flavors. Barely any chocolate or coffee aromas. The taste wasn’t good though - that sour artificial peanut flavor dominated, and overwhelmed any other notes of malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel or vanilla. Too acidic and sour, with a thin slightly creamy mouthfeel and good carbonation. Would have been great if only the taste were more balanced and not so sour.

12oz can. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled like a peanut butter cup. Such a sweet aroma. Nice blend of peanut butter flavor with chocolate and caramel.

Pours a dark near black brown with a thick mocha head that falls back gradually leaving a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is peanut butter forward with dark roasted malts. Flavor follows the nose with some sweet chocolate added. Feel is light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall one of the better peanut butter milk stouts I've tried.

Appearance - Pours black with a nice thin tan head that settles to a thin ring. Not much lacing at all.

Aroma - Rich peanut butter, roasted malts, vanilla, rich bakers chocolate. Almost smells like decadent peanut butter cup really rich aroma.

Taste - Taste is peanut butter up front, vanilla, roast malts finishing with fresh roasted peanuts. Tastes like what it says light ABV peanut butter milk stout.

Feel - Thin even for a milk stout, creamy slightly dry finish.

Overall - Decent milk stout nice flavors smooth easy drinking.

All I can say is Ka-POW. I don’t like peanut butter on anything except peanut butter and jelly. So when I taste this first time I was not expecting it to or want me like it did. It pours beautiful with a dark brown body finished with light Carmel toasty brown head. I can say it’s one of the only beers out there that taste exactly like it smells: peanut butter and richness of chocolate and a beautiful taste in your mouth. It goes great with ice cream or anything desserty. I tell everyone about this and I can say WOW. I now have two versions of this at my restaurant. This one and Mexican Chocolate Verison.
