4.04/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: A modest bubble show produces a one inch tan head over the espresso colored liquid; a few strands hang around

Smell: Milk chocolate, caramel, nougat and peanuts all come through in the aroma

Taste: Milk chocolate forward with the caramel and nougat adding sweetness; peanuts arrive just before a brief bitter element that offsets the sweetness to some extent; the overwhelming sweetness returns to drive home the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; a little thin for the style

Overall: Well-named; I enjoyed smelling it more than drinking it; good for what it is

Appearance is very dark brown with a moderate tan head that recedes rather quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is quite nutty with notes of chocolate and caramel. As expected, it’s quite sweet but there’s also a hint of bitter roasted malt. Peanuts, chocolate, and caramel are all present in the taste. Mouthfeel is viscous and sticky.

16 oz can

Pours opaque black, tan lacing for a head.

Aroma is of cocoa, peanuts, toast, caramel, and pie crust.

Flavor is of peanuts, milk chocolate, caramel, cream, and candy bar.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Pretty tasty dessert stout. Despite essentially being a candy bar in beer form, it's not overwhelming sweet and has some good toasty malt balance. Worth trying, better than I was expecting.

this is another one of those dessert stouts that i appreciate but dont really want to drink, and although nobody said it, i got that same sense from the folks i drank the can with, definitely a sharer unless you are fiending for diabetes. its brewed with peanuts and caramel and nougat and chocolate and lactose, and i can definitely taste all of those things. it smells like the powdered peanut butter, and thats the predominant flavor in this big sticky stout, it drinks heavier than its listed abv, but more from the sugar and body than from it being hot or anything. the caramel and nougat are there too, like the inside of a three musketeers bar or something, tasty sure, but almost gross in liquid form, certainly indulgent. the chocolate is great, and this might be good just with that, weldwerks always seems to do chocolate well, and its very much a milk chocolate thing, syrupy and good. the flavor of the peanut butter is a bit strong, kind of dominates the others, while the brown sugary rich finish just sits on my teeth forever, even though the flavor itself is relatively fast finishing for what this is. more of a novelty for halloween time than anything else, but about as well done as i can imagine this sort of thing being. fun to drink some weldwerks away from colorado, but i dont miss their beers like this, not in the least...
