Picked this up last month at the Casual Pint in Pigeon Forge, on my way home from being on the road during the summer. Yeah, I was drawn in by the label but this was a fun beer that was balanced by both flavors while being easy to drink and having the alcoholic presence hidden as much as possible.

Sure, this poured a dark coffee brown with a ton of mocha head topping it off. That didn't take too long to settle down but the lacing left behind was mostly in the form of two thin rings just above the middle of my pint glass with just a few suds dripping down from the bottom one. Tons of strawberry and raspberry jam in the nose with some peanut oil and fruit patch underneath that, The tartness and outdoorsy nature of this beer also came through in the taste with some peanut butter stickiness and bitter chocolate emerging as this fully warmed up. Creamy, full-bodied, and slick, this did feel like a sandwich with a few dank hops thrown in for good measure.

Yeah, this was strong but it didn't warm me up that much as I would have easily downed another had I bought more than one can. Besides some cloying creaminess, it was tough to detect any milk here but this was plenty sweet from the fruit, all the way to the last sip. No date was given on the bottom of the can but besides a bit of dark sediment that was barely visible, this felt as fresh as could be. Glad I gave this a go and if this was a session beer, it would be my go-to substitute for the sandwich. I need to check these guys out the next time I'm in the Music City!

Dull matte black with muddy brown hues and a thin red edge under a softly dense tan head settling to bubbly tan pearls.

While the strawberry flavor is a little artificial, and lightly tart, it's also got a decent peanut butter savory-ness and a hint of wafer that pairs well with porter-like elements of mild roast adding tobacco and cola qualities.

The smooth medium-full body has a soft yet light bubbly carbonation, sharpening to a lightly acrid, semi-bitter bite before finishing semi-dry and slightly numbing.

Enjoyed on tap at Flying Saucer in Memphis TN
A: Pours black, when the waitress gave it to me there was no head, but it is difficult to say anything conclusive.
S: Notes of raspberry and peanut butter. Smells a bit sweet.
T: Raspberry dominates the front end but isn’t overwhelming. It also isn’t tart, mostly a sweet jam taste but the sweetness isn’t overwhelming either. A subtle peanut butter flavor that is more pronounced on the back end.
F: Good overall feel that is not too light or two heavy. The right amount of body and carbonation.
O: Overall it’s a good beer. The sweetness is a nice touch, and the peanut butter creaminess provides a good foundation. Extremely well balanced with good PB& J flavor.
Would buy again: yes

12 oz can, dated 12/21/19, into Boiler brandy snifter.

Appearance is a dark roast color with a creamy beige head of 2 fingers, receding to 1 after a short duration. Slight lacing remains as the final head settles to a fingernail with a beautiful creamy layer on top.

The aroma is just a beautiful thing. It's like a peanut butter and jelly wafer cookie. It's so juicy and sweet with strawberry/raspberry, and the peanut butter aroma is there giving this nice nutty oily smell. These notes don't live on top of each other or clash, they live harmoniously and create a wonderful synergy. It also reminds me of a strawberry peanut butter jelly sandwich.

The flavor is oddly empty. Earthy peanut water, then traces of herbal hop, and then a hint of strawberry jam like a spoon licked twice already. Flavor is just...well, it's just empty.

Feel is oily and smooth, with a nice acidity and roast character, and some bite from the alcohol as well. Warms the larynx a bit. Borders on whiskey sting though.

Overall, I thought this beer was going to hit it out of the park, but once it met my lips I was really disappointed. I very much prefer the regular Imperial Peanut Butter Milk Stout over this one.

Price paid : $3.99 / can
Would buy again : no

Poured into a wine glass. A viscous dark brown on the pour with a small tan head. Aroma was bursting out of the can. Huge peanut butter notes with strawberry jam and milk chocolate on deeper inspection. The taste followed closely. The PB dominated the palate but the sweet strawberry notes were there. Vanilla and chocolate were underneath. This was a sweet beer but not over the top cloying, and the ABV was well-hidden. Full bodied but not slick. Overall a fun and enjoyable beer - one of the best PB beers I can remember.
