look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

On tap at Brewskival 2019.

Pours jet black, viscous with some tan head.

Smell is straight up peanut butter with some hints of chocolate, vanilla, and coconut.

Taste is sweet and rich with notes of peanut butter, chocolate, coconut and some oaky bourbon.

Mouthfeel is thick and viscous with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nice PB stout, sweet and desserty.

On tap at Other Half Rochester in Bloomfield, NY.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells like creamy peanut butter with milk chocolate swirl, tons of sweet candy-like vanilla and marshmallow, caramel, chocolate pudding, and slight barrel.

This is very delicious but it's also supremely ridiculous. It's got such a viscous flavor to it, with thick peanut butter and chocolate all over the place. The marshmallow doesn't come across artificially. It's very sweet, but feels authentic in a way. There's not a ton of barrel, like most typical Florida dark sugar water

This is thick and super chewy, with a lower level of carbonation, and a surprisingly decent level of drinkability.

This is undoubtedly excellent, and just plain silly. It's still a banger.

The void black pour is so viscous and slow it seems like it's gripping the sides of the bottle not wanting to come out. It's a gloppy, splash-proof used motor oil liquid filling so thick that the head struggles to develop, except for a tiny mocha ring.

Licking a drop off my finger tastes like melted candy bar residue. Glass to lips, it's peanut butter Oreo and Nutella wafer, but thickly viscous, just like it looks. There's a slight graininess underneath the pudding thick body that just further emulates that melted candy bar character, yet there's also a light sting in the swallow that reminds you for a moment that you are in fact drinking liquid alcohol.

All of this absurdist decadence makes the barrel hard to detect, but there actually is a slight oaky char with some vanilla spirit bringing you right back to that all you can eat pastry buffet with gobs of gooey marshmallow.

They've taken the Florida pastry stout to 11, and hey someone had to do it--and sure, plenty will fawn all over this--but to me, it's ridiculous.

WOW you could chew this! So thick and creamy and full. Nose is all peanut butter and marshmallow in balance with the barrels notes to match. Fantastic very well balanced beer.

This beer pours dark. Like, really dark. Stains and sticks to the glass. No light shines through while pouring. I've painted rooms with thinner liquid.

Smells of super strong butterscotch. Like, unmistakable. It's actually a little sharper than I was hoping. I found myself wanting more deep, roasted coffee notes to offset the very strong, sharp peanut candy smell.

Flavor was more of the same. Tons of butterscotch, with a sweet finish. It's super thick and oily, but is frighteningly drinkable. You can understand the hype. This beer is special.

Thickest stout i've ever had, and i've had a lot of them.....nose and taste are all peanuts, roasty and flavorful...not getting much marshmallow, but haven't let it warm up yet.... Thankfully, a good balance of flavors, including bourbon and spicy rye, and not too sweet....

This was a weird one. The mouth feel and viscosity were awesome. The problem was the nose and flavor were both of burn peanuts. Very little marshmallow flavor.

Excellent, what a pour- all motor oil sludge it's aromas of peanut butter like I've never encountered in a beer, reminds me of Reboog Vitis on the nose. Thick as hell and creamy, mouthfeel is sludgy and everything you want in a big stout. abv is hidden and the barrel is nicely incorporated into the huge flavor. Excellent beer, can't wait to try more barrel aged stouts from these guys
