What the brewer says

“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!” 93 AROMA: 11 AP­PEAR­ANCE: 3 FLA­VOR: 18 MOUTH­FEEL: 4 OVER­ALL: 9
