Canned on 8/02/17 consumed 8/13/17.

L- Dark brown/black, light tan fine bubbly head.
S- Straight up reeses peanut butter cup cereal with whole milk (extra peanut butter). some roasted maltiness and another wave of slight bitter chocolate.
T- Just like the cereal with extra peanut butter (also EXTRA sweet) followed by a quick follow up of those bitter roasted malts and slight bitter chocolate.
F- Decent thickness, great carbonation, drinks like a slightly thicker beer than its 5.3 abv would suggest.

I like this beer and it's done really well. I gotta take these pretty slow, though. Maybe a bit too sweet for me but it really is delicious and clearly peanut buttery and milky. Good job on this one.

(When I had this on nitro it was a bit less sweet and that was the perfect balance for me).
EDIT: After my first can, it tasted a lot less sweet and really well balanced for the rest of the pack. Really enjoyable stuff.

On tap at the taproom in North Park, San Diego (also took home some cans). Looks like a stout, black beer. Aroma from the tap was nutty, at home it was like chocolate malted. Flavor was peanuts and chocolate, can flavor was like a chocolate malt. I feel like the tap version was more peanut like but they were both good.

Had to slow the pour down a bit, as this lively opaque beer quickly drew up this nice frothy brown head. Not much lacing, as it settles almost as quick as it raced up the glass. Smells exactly like the name, as peanut butter rules the right away impression, but as that smell pulls away, there is certainly an aroma I can only imagine is a result of a lactose addition. Slightly sweet, and a touch earthy. Finally, there's that hint of coffee barley contribution. Initial sensation on the tongue is slightly tart, before any taste is detected. Almost in an instant later three tastes role in at once. Peanut butter, something smokey and a finishing taste of a light roast coffee.

Very tasty beer, light but not thin, tons of taste but not overly demanding. This would make a great wind down drinker most days out of a week.

Poured from 12oz can into a snifter glass.

Look: Very dark brown to black with a very thin layer of brown head. Not really transparent at all.

Smell: A delightful aroma of coffee and chocolate malts with a milky sweet peanut butterness to it.

Taste: It very much follows the aroma and is heavenly.

Feel: Starts light and gets creamy as it sits in the mouth. Would love to experience it on nitro draft.

Overall: Wow to be honest I am blown away. Was not expecting as much peanut butter flavor that I ended up getting. Easily one of the better beers I have had.

Brown to black with a small head. Malty smell with overwhelming milkyness, it was difficult to smell the peanut butter. Milky flavor dominated with a slight peanut butter/bitter finish with a terrible aftertaste almost like bad breath. It is quite creamy a pretty heavy, a pretty decent dessert beer but the flavor is a bit off and I would not buy this again.

Twelve ounce can copped from Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Pours a dark opaque hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of peanut butter and chocolate. Similar overall flavor profile.

Holy peanut butter! It is what it is so be ready for full on silky, creamy, liquified peanut butter. I enjoyed it a lot but could definetly only enjoy one at a time. Very rich.

Currently my go to beer since Fall River does not have their "Irish Cream Stout" It is such an easy stout to put down, its so flavorful and I've never had a single bottle that was inconsistent. I love being able to grab a bottle and just know the consistency and expectation of whats inside it. I can not say the same for every brewery....
I enjoy 90% of my beer straight from my growler, simply because the inconsistencies if find from bottle to bottle.
Bleching Beaver's 3 milk stouts are all incredibly stable selections! I can't wait to go to the brewery and try some on nitro.... I might never leave.....
