In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Great Notion Peanut Brother

Aroma: “Overwhelming peanut butter dominates any other flavor that could possibly try to escape. A mild rice-cake aroma that gets pounded by a Butterfinger candy bar. If you love peanut butter, you’re going to think this is awesome.”

Flavor: “Similar to the aroma. The peanut character leaves a slightly dusty coating impression on the finish. Fairly creamy with good carbonation despite the nut addition, which is nice.”

Overall: “Kind of a one-note wonder, but it does that really well. The chocolate/peanut butter character is dominant throughout, and the underlying beer provides a nice strong milk-stout backbone. If you want to drink a stout version of a peanut butter cup, this beer is for you.”
