4.51/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives pitch black with a modest head; a few strands linger

Smell: Peanut butter wafts above the roast, caramel and dark chocolate; the marshmallow adds some vanilla and sugar tones

Taste: Roast and dark chocolate forward with a caramel building; the peanut butter emerges, through the middle, along with the marshmallow; although the beer wants to find bush sweet, the peanut butter salty aspect seems to hold it in check

Mouthfeel: Full body with low carbonation

Overall: Though I often find pastry stouts too sweet, this one is quite good

Oily, tar black with a thin but dense mocha ring.

Smell is Cocoa Puffs milk, marshmallow, peanut butter and even nutty coffee.

Taste is s'mores! Chocolate bar, marshmallow, graham-esque peanut butter fudge with a touch of sharp cola or acidic coffee like element.

This has a Porter weight with a light, thin body that's also slick and sticky with a dry finish.

We had this at a bottle share and it was a hit! Derp. Something this ostentatious and overboard is going to stand out no matter what. Doesn't mean it's a great beer, there is some weird stuff going on here and I'd love to see in person how exactly they're achieving these pastry flavors.

This was a very well executed peanut butter stout but even as good as it was, it could still use more peanut butter. I'd LOVE to see a bigger, peanuttier version of this.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an El Catador Barrel-Aged glass.

A: Very dark brown, opaque, and with a thin tan head. Minimal if any visible carbonation here.

S: Big peanut butter, sweet roasted malts, and vanilla. Chocolate, toffee, and mild caramel. I guess the sweet vanilla could be marshmallow here, but it's nothing distinctive. Mild green tobacco as well, but the peanut butter dominates here. Quite nice.

T: Peanut butter – again, big and dominating but not in a bad way. Roasted malts, vanilla, and dark roasted malts with a sweet sugar glaze. Dark and sticky chocolate, and a mild tobacco with slight coffee in the malts. Mild roasted and hop bitterness. More sticky chocolate and peanut butter in the hang.

M: A thick, sticky body, with minimal carbonation - but it fits this beer wonderfully. The 10% ABV is very well-hidden.

O: A really, really good peanut butter stout. I don't get much in the way of marshmallow specifically. But big peanut butter with some chocolate, and it stays sweet and sticky. Nice. This might be the best peanut butter stout I’ve had - Rapp's would probably be the only competition I can think of. Willoughby's comes to mind, but I believe that's listed as a porter. Either way, really tasty.

Shared with the masses on 3-25-17. Pours a silky motor oil black with pretty much 0 head. Upon first approach with the old nostrils, my head pretty much exploded from peanut butter overload. "So strong in the peanut butter this one is" as Yoda might say. The thickness of the beer and the peanut butter flavor coat and fill the mouth, then stick around for a while to let you know that you just had something with peanut butter. There is a touch of sweet at the end, which I am assuming is the marshmallow(and that is really the only knock on the beer, that that I didn't pick up too much on the flavor).

This beer is a winner in my book. As a last note, this was shared with a ton a people at a beer release, with most people letting me know that it was the favorite they had so far. A real eye opener.

Tan head. Black in color.

I like this but I like the ba popinski better. Lots of peanut butter and marshmallow. Chocolate and cocoa. Thick and fudgy.

Full bodied. A very nice adjunct stout.

Very dark Stout with a caramel colored head that goes away fast. Can smell a lot of peanut butter and sweetness. Can taste the roasted malts with a little sugar. No sign of peanut butter
