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

Pours black with a nice, lingering tan colored head. Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate, and peanuts. The taste is peanut butter (real, not the artificial kind), coffee roast, and bittersweet chocolates. There's enough bitterness to balance the sweetness. This beer has the most "real" peanut butter taste I've had in a beer. Just unreal. Feel is smooth and fairly heavy for the lower ABV. Overall, I could drink this all the time, as it rides the balance between dessert stout, sessionable stout, and heavy stout so well.

I was up in Portland for the day, going to as many breweries as I could fit into one day. So I start off at Allagash, which opens an hour before all the other breweries. I make my way across the street to a building housing 3 breweries- Austin Street, Battery Steele, and Foundation. So I'm drinking beers at Foundation and sitting with some locals when one of them says how there's this AMAZING stout from a brewery I'd never hear of, called Mast Landing and that his buddy had to check it out. I overheard this, asked about the brewery and went there after I had finished up at Foundation and the other two breweries in the building.

He wasn't kidding, Gunner's Daughter was AMAZING. Notes of coffee, coco and huge flavour and aroma of peanut butter. It drank a tad thin but that's my only critizim. I drank my sample and bought a 4 pack of cans.

To my suprise, it was better in a can than on tap- go figure, right? I returned to Mast Landing for their one year anniversary party and bought a case of the stuff. Its that good! I'd love to see an imperial version. This beer is the shit!

I was not expecting to like this beer and was reluctant to try it. It is actually pretty fantastic. It's not artificial tasting at all and the peanut butter flavor is just enough to play nicely off the roasted malts. It smells like coffee, chocolate and peanut butter. My only complaint was that it was a hair thin, but hey it is 5 % and it's probably not fair to expect much more body at that abv.

Gunner's Daughter has become a new favorite of mine. I first tried it while on a trip to Maine, and am saddened that I cannot get it in Arizona.

Look: Dark brown/Black, with a thick beige head

Smell: The smell is mild, chocolaty and lightly nutty

Taste: This beer is almost sweet with initial tones of dark chocolate and a nutty finnish, almost like peanut butter. The overall flavor is very smooth with little bitterness, and the flavors even carry over to the thick foamy head.

Feel: The carbonation is light, making this a very creamy beer. A prime example of a milk stout done well. The head is this and creamy as well and lingers for some time.

Overall: I just hope that Mast Landing will some day expand to the point where I can get their beers here in Arizona. This is one of my favorite beers of all time.

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.

16 oz can about 6 weeks old

Pours a very dark brown with e half finger cocoa, silky head. Excellent lacing rings.

Aroma is equal parts coffee and peanut butter with a little chocolate in the back.

Tastes exactly how it smells. Nicely sweet backbone. The malt is out of the way to make room for ample amounts of coffee, PB and chocolate. Very well balanced.

Feel is a little creamy but this is not as smooth as the typical milk stout - which is not a knock. Low to moderate bitterness, low effervescence. Not much alcohol burn either (which is good IMO).

This is an incredibly well balanced beer in terms of flavor and sweetness, I can see why people drive out just to get this stuff. I'm not really a stout guy but this one I will get again just to have around for friends or for the rare times I get in the mood.

This stout has to be reviewed in its own context. Milk stout with peanut butter overtones. A classic stout look, good hear, dark color. A bit sweet with pronounced vanilla. Great for dessert!

L — Very deep brown body with two fingers of tan head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and minimal lacing
S — Peanut butter, graham cracker, nougat, milk chocolate, coffee syrup, cornflakes, coconut
T — Chocolate syrup, graham cracker, vanilla, coconut, toffee, touch of peanut character
F — Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Not too watery given the ABV. Semi-sweet
O — An easy drinking flavored stout that reminds me a lot of Omnipollo’s Noa and Trillium’s Chocolate Pot & Kettle. My first from this brewery and enjoying it a lot

84/100
