L - 2-finger hazelnut head atop a black body.

S - strong peanut butter and milk chocolate. Smells like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup! Yum.

T - follows the nose. Tons of pb and chocolate. Not getting much coffee. Low bitterness. Low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - very pb-forward. Wish the coffee was more present, but as-is this is still tasty.

A: The beer is nearly jet black in color—when held up to a bright light there are dark brownish red hues near the edge of the glass. It poured with a short light tan head that gradually settled down, leaving delicate lacing on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of peanut butter are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of peanut butter along with hints of chocolate.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This stout is all about the peanut butter in both the smell and taste and isn't overly heavy on the palate.

Canned on 8/3/18

Pour is about as deep a shade of brown as possible without being black, and capped with a finger and a half of beige foam; good head retention and minimal lacing.

Aroma bursts with nutty roastiness and toasted malt with a subtle lactic twist; peanut butter eventually makes its way in, as does some sweet oak and earthy vanilla tones.

Taste is consistent with the aroma and softens nicely; plenty of roasty peanuts encompassing a blend of coffee beans and dark cacao powder, adding the very tempered bitterness; also in the fold are vanilla beans and expanding notes of creamy peanut butter.

Mouthfeel carries a medium-low carbonation and dryness that feels right with the lighter aspects of the beer, and actually holds the body and flavor up quite nicely; a surprisingly clean finish, but not without plenty of smooth aftertaste making its way through in spots.

This is certainly a uniquely done milk stout; for only 5.5% ABV, tons of flavor carries through here, with the roasty peanut and background sweetness giving this one a really interesting flair. A easy-drinking milk stout, and not overwhelming considering all the flavor; a nicely done, quality brew, but the fleeting eccentricities (the sweetness can become oddly cloying at times) of the profile would make this difficult to reach for daily, at least for my palate.

Poured into a 16 oz Great Divide Tulip Glass, canned in late June. Pours a dark mahogany with a 2 plus finger light tan head, that leaves some spotty lace.

Smell is peanut butter, vanilla, and dark chocolate.

Taste is more assertive peanut butter most dominant, vanilla, and dark chocolate, one dimensional and that is fine.

Mouthfeel is thin, enough life, a tad dry, and drinks bigger in flavor, but smaller in body.

Overall a nice beer, wouldn’t purchase another 4 pack, but still nice.

Picked up a 4 pack of this the same day as JLindros yet...my 4 pack is dated 7/28. Well now, that's disappointing...

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice dark brown nearly black with a one finger slightly rocky mocha head that fades slowly to leave a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of huge peanut butter notes, just enormous roasted peanuts. Some dark bakers chocolate and milk chocolate. Almost cookie or candy bar like...like a Little Debbie Nutty bar. Certainly delivers on what it promises!

T - Taste is similar to the nose with more of the nice peanut butter notes, really rich and nutty. The chocolate is on the sweeter side, same for the lactose, but there is enough roast going on to balance everything out. Just a stellar amount of peanut butter here with flashes of coffee and dark chocolate along with nice roasted malts.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, however, it comes across as a touch on the thin side...which is odd as the peanut butter definitely adds body.

O - Overall this was a very solid milk stout from Mast Landing. They really delivered on the peanut butter notes here without coming across as artificial as can happen when things go overboard.

Canned 8/03/18 "Happy birthday Tom Brady" yay!

Pours a huge foamy bubbly 1 finger off-white head that fades at a med pace with big bubble lacing, super dark basically black beer

nose brings loads of peanut butter, tons of raw peanuts, some dark chocolate and milk chocolate, a sweet mocha and malty aroma with a little milky lactose, toasted biscuity cookie wafer with some candy bar notes, def like a peanut butter twix, a mild roast and coffee in the background

Taste brings a lot more of the same, basically a peanut butter twix again, tons of peanuts, creamy plenty of lactose and oats, little milk chocolate and hints of dark chocolate on the back end, more cookie wafer biscuity notes with nutty toffee mixed in and a touch of caramel, mild coffee, a little mocha and coffee fudge, touch of bitterness late, finishes mild sweet creamy more milk lactose and tons more peanut butter

Mouth is med bod, very creamy rich, decent carb

Overall quite nice, loads of everything they promise and balanced well with base milk stout, which is not my fav style but works well here.

Overall a pretty good peanut butter stout. Natural flavors and not over done. The smell is amazing, but the taste doesn't quite stand up. PM dawn is my standard here so tough competition.

Very dark with a milky and oatmealy flavor. Honestly feels like it should have cereal in it. Flavor can be best be described as jarring if you don't know what you're drinking, which, as a new stout drinker, I did not.
