4/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer pours a nice brown and bubbly head that dissipates quickly but still leaves some behind. The beer itself is a very dark chocolate brown such that it looks black save ford a black hue. The beer also has a good and interesting oily texture to it from the peanut butter.

The smell is pretty straightforward and good. It has a peanut butter upfront mixed with chocolate and a good light coffee in the finish.

The taste is good. The bitter coffee comes upfront first with the peanut butter following it pretty quickly.

The feel is good. It has a medium body with a slight oily note to it and a bit of thickness.

Overall, a fairly good milk stout worth getting to keep warm and awake through the dark and cold.

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

L - Black with mahogany highlights with a tan head that dissipates quickly leaving behind no real lacing.
S - Smell is incredible with huge amounts of roasted coffee and peanut butter along with some notes of milk chocolate
T - Follows the nose: tons of roasted coffee up front and throughout with some velvety peanut butter notes along with some light notes of milk chocolate. Some roasted malts in there as well - definitely on the sweet side but not too sweet.
F - Medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation - seems a little thin for what I was hoping for/expecting, but otherwise smooth, and somewhat creamy.
O - A really nice milk stout with tons of coffee and peanut butter flavors. It would be perfect with a heavier mouthfeel.

3.84/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours fudge brown with a bubbly beige head that settles like a pancake; splashy lacing all around

Smell: Milk chocolate and peanut butter tones with a hint of coffee

Taste: The peanut butter adjunct is prominent from start to finish; with milk chocolate emerging; the coffee takes a back seat and can only be detected in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: A little too sweet for my palate but not surprising given the adjuncts used; a fuller mouthfeel would also benefit

Thanks, Frogger27, for the opportunity
