L - thinnish brown with a whitish tan head. Big bubbles and kinda fizzly, not much lasting power. Looks like a porter.

S - Reese's Puffs. Wtf. It doesn't get any more Reesey or Puffy than this. Milk chocolate and sweetened peanut butter like those Skippy's chocolate peanut butter bars (do they still make those?!)

T - again with the Reese's Puffs, but add the milk! Like drinking a bowl of breakfast. Getting some more aggressive roasty flavors, bite from the coffee and the chocolate is turning dark. Nutty... Nutter Butter? Invoking all the nostalgia. I can find no better way to describe this than your favorite snacks as a kid.

F - where the beer falls short. Sure, it's only 5.5%, but something this delicious needs a better backbone. Light and thin with a hollow carbonation that misses the silky mark. Not bad, but just... there. A little fizzy on the end too.

O - not sure if I've mentioned this yet, but it's Reese's Puffs. Excellently drinkable with a fun flavor that's not too much. I can see this being a regular rotation in my fridge. All it takes is a 4 hour drive!

Really liked this beer. Smooth, peanut butter & chocolate notes, with the PB really coming through. Honestly tasted like a treat. Would certainly get again.

Wow, an unusual and tasty beer!
I wouldn't normally go for a peanut butter milk stout, but the bar menu didn't mention the PB so I was surprised by this one.

Very nutty, sweet milk chocolate in aroma and taste. Smooth and luscious body.
The flavors may be a little out of balance and lacking the hops and bitter roast I like in a stout, but it's definitely unique and well made.

On tap:
Dark brown body, the head is a contrast as a barely tanning white. Size of head was moderaste in this pour, and snowflakes of lacing appeared on the glass as I drank.

Nose was heavy on peanut butter, though it eased up in the taste. In fact, the flavor of peanuts might be highly influenced by the nose on each sip. The beer doesn’t have much of the lactose influence, nearing a regular light roasty stout. As such, the feel isn’t as creamy as a milk stout can be. There’s a decent carbonation as well.

So, a surprisingly near dry stout with a nice peanut aroma that brings about a “flavored” beer, but not one I’d say reaches the “pastry stout” range, thankfully.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer is a trade with @Schuee. Thanks man!
The beer pours a deep chocolate brown color with a fluffy beige head of 3 cm. The foam fades to a sturdy ring of bubbles and a few wispy islands. The nutty aroma hits me on the pour. Wow! This is a great scent, not full on peanuts but more a a crackery peanut cookie note, if that makes sense. The nutter butter wafer cookies dipped in chocolate IS THIS AROMA. I love it!
First sip reveals an average body with silky smooth texture and very fine tingly carbonation. Very easy drinking brew on the physical traits.
Flavor is sweet milk chocolate with a little bit of roasted malt and a lot of the nutter butter wafer flavor. No hops, no booze, and the wafer flavor lingers long after each sip.
This beer drinks easy, tastes great and is pleasing to the nose and eye. I love it, and want more of it. I will be keeping my eyes peeled for this one again for certain. Excellent!

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.

Serving type: can
