Smell: The richest creamiest Peanut Butter engulf’s the nostrils when digging your nose in. The rich creamy notes of peanut butter are followed by fluffy marshmallow notes and sweet melted milk chocolate. The smell resembles what it would be like to mix a Reese’s cup with a mellow cup, It’s incredible.

Taste: A mouth coating mixture of rich creamy peanut butter, melted milk chocolate, fluffy marshmallow and this amazing sticky toffee note that I didn’t pick up on the nose but is welcomed in the taste. This is a mix of a Reese’s cup and a mallow cup, mixed in with lovely toffee notes. The beer has a slight roasted bitterness in the finish to let you know this is a beer, but it’s very minimal.

Feel: medium to full mouthfeel. The beer is so decadent and creamy. It enhances all the dessert qualities of the beer. The beer is just a treat all the way around and the mouthfeel matches the greatness of the smell and taste. Also for 12% the beer isn’t hot or overly sweet even though it’s dessert in a glass.

Overall: Untitled Art now makes two of my favorite non barrel aged stouts of all time. This beer is practically flawless. The only Peanut butter beer that compares to this is Witch’s Hat Traxxx Night Fury which is barrel aged so it’s not exactly the perfect comparison. Overall this is incredible and even more amazing is that this is a selfie seeing distribution outside the state it’s brewed in.

12 oz. Can
Canned On: 01/20/20

Poured into a tulip a very nice dark brown/black color, with some pretty nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger tan head, which also leaves some nice oil slicks, and some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is really nice, malty, with a pretty nice touch of chocolate/toffee, some peanut butter, vanilla, licorice, roasty. The taste is pretty awesome, malty, with a very nice touch of chocolate/toffee, very nice peanut butter, with a really nice touch of vanilla, licorice, pretty nice roastyness, with a pretty nice sweetness. Full Body, ABV is hidden very nicely, with a slight dry/bitter finish, a very nice sipper. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Glad to see it around here.

Canned on 1/20/20. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours almost black; khaki head that fades leaving solid retention and lacing. The aromas have some roasted peanut shells. Peanut butter is there. Subtle hints of cocoa and vanilla. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. More peanut butter and salted peanut shells leading the way. Some cocoa and chocolate. The lactose definitely comes through giving this one a solid sweetness. It's definitely on the sweeter side, but not quite cloying. Strong malt backbone. Low bitterness. Finishes with a subtle warmth and mild alcohol notes, but it's not hot or boozy at all. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, creamy and slightly velvety. It's ultimately dangerously drinkable despite drinking big.

This is a great "peanut butter cup stout". It has everything that you'd expect from one. This is definitely a "dessert beer" and on the sweeter side. It's big, bold and highly enjoyable. Well done. This brew is well executed.

another cool untitled art collaboration, this one with hidden springs out of florida. a strong but smooth stout with a lot of chocolate and peanut character, but not overly sugary to me, a boozy sipper, but not a sweetness bomb as so many of these are. seems like everyone is doing peanut butter stouts these days, but this one is way ahead of the curve, cool to find it on tap too! fudge brown and quite dense in the glass, the tan head fades slowly, and the viscosity is evident. aroma and flavor mirror one another, tons of roasted peanut quality, dry to me for what it is, honest and real, a vanilla note too, brown sugar, and a baked richness, very deep and wintery too, almost presents itself as being barrel aged, even though i dont think it is. its a strong peanut butter and chocolate flavor, on the edge of being forced and too intense, but it seems somehow naturally derived too, which is impressive. i really like the bitter roast i get, the coffee suggestion, and the way the alcohol kind of cleans the palate on the swallow, especially at temperature. better than most of these, it doesnt taste like the peanut butter powder, but its also not greasy like some can be. well refined and good, but you have to want these flavors for this to be appealing. a little of it was enough for me, but i liked it quite well. these untitled art beers have been pretty creative and well executed on the whole so far, neat collaborations too, lots of fun to drink them!

End goal: make beer taste like Resse's Peanut Butter Cups. That's what exactly what the brewers of Untitled Art and Hidden Springs Ale Works have in mind when heading into their collaboration stout recipe formulation

A basic and jet black color, Peanut Butter Cup Stout nestles into the snifter with ominous and opaque appearance, and underneath a dense blanket of mocha tan foam. The promise of chocolate and peanut butter is delivered in the beer's scent wafting about with mocha, coffee, nuttiness and toasted toffee. Those peanut butter and chocolate flavors manifest quickly on the early palate as the malts are a straight forward dialogue of milk chocolate, peanut butter fudge and deeply caramelized sugars.

As its delightful decadence coats the middle palate, the more robust taste of bittersweet chocolate, espresso bean, walnut and toasted peanuts create a savory and unabashed dessert effect on the tongue. Full saturation of toffee-laden malts start to become fudge-like on the late palate in a pleasantly cloying, slightly bitter balance on the late palate.

Unabashedly full in body, the ale is simply larger than life. Its thickness is redolent of cake batter as the malts cling to the softer tissues of the mouth without restraint. Cut slightly only by its kahlua-like spice, this beer is something of a chocolatier's dream. A long and savory-sweet draw of all-things-peanut butter cup lingers effortlessly and welcomingly into the next anticipated sip. ...and the next, and then the next.
