Outstanding
Notes: Russian Imperial Stout that was rested in Bardstown Rye-Blend Bourbon barrels for 14 months, then packed with an absolutely ludicrous amount of freshly hand-roasted peanuts and an astonishing amount of fluffy marshmallows. If you were to imagine dipping your coveted childhood Fluffernutter sammy in a big ol’ barrel aged stout, this is what we think the end result would taste like. Does not contain Lactose.

Extremely well executed beer. Fantastic mouthfeel with a fantastic balance of the peanut butter, marshmallow and barrel. This beer really stood out in a night full of big bottles.

Pours pitch black, thin tan ring present on the outside of glass. Nose is rig milk chocolate and huge pB. Getting a little bit of woody oak and bourbon coming through. Taste follows the nose, get milk chocolate up front and then big pB. Roasty vanilla notes. A little burn from the barrel, but not a huge barrel presence. Creamy luxurious mouthfeel. Overall delicious. Don’t suspect these are aged long however as the barrel doesn’t play big here. Still a great offering from AC.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into an AC pint glass.

Pours a thick oily black body with a dark brown head that sticks around for a while and leaves spotty lacing.

Holy crap this smells unreal. Straight peanut butter chocolate fudge cookies straight out of the oven with extra vanilla extract in them and a touch of coffee. Marshmallow s’mores ice cream galore. Bourbon booziness in the background. Pastry city.

Taste is liquid Reese’s cups with dark chocolate fudge drizzled over them. Vanilla bourbon on the follow through, roasty coffee char on the finish. Thick rich body.

I am a sucker for a good pastry stout, and peanut butter cups. And this is the epitome of both.

love peanut butter and marshmallows and angry chair, so this was bound to be a hit w/ me...
And the best part is its not so sweet as some other AC beers can be---probably thanks to the salty peanut butter!...
An excellent 3rd anniversary brew!

This one pours a pretty dark black, with no head or lacing, really.

This smells like creamy chocolate peanut butter, cake frosting, hazelnut, and simple syrup.

This is rather sweet, but it's not really cloying. The peanut butter flavor is super killer here, like the creaminest and nuttiest peanut butter ever. There's lots of sweet vanilla- it's definitely a bit of a 'nilla bomb. There's basically absolutely no barrel here, which is surprising, and slightly disappointing.

Nonetheless, this is so creamy, velvety and smooth- it's delightful to drink. There's a lower level of carbonation.

This is a very fun beer, but I probably wouldn't be able to guess it was barrel-aged if I was tasting it blind.
