What the brewers say

“Unwilling to compromise, years of experimentation haave finally yielded a beer that uses real peanuts to create a rich and decadent stout that allows all elements—the bourbon character, peanuts, and dark malts—to shine.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Boozy, soy sauce, licorice, peanut butter (maybe) with rounded rich chocolate and roasty, toasty malt.”

Flavor: “Sweet, rich chocolate with hints of marshmallow and toast. Soy sauce, peanuts, roast, and dark chocolate. Strong and sweet with an underlying umami aspect. Big and assertive alcohol presence.”

Overall: “This is a fantastic barrel-aged stout with a lot going on. Lots of umami and soy sauce and a nice peanut character that tastes like the nuts themselves and not overly-sweetened peanut butter. Rich and intense with a note on the end reminiscent of smoked meat. It’s a ‘trick’ beer but a fun one at that—very strong and smooth—be careful how much you drink!”
