Belching Beaver Brewery Peanut Butter Flavored Milk Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Belching Beaver Brewery Peanut Butter Flavored Milk Stout. I picked this bottle up at The Wine Club in San Jose (here). They have a small craft beer section, but they have an incredible selection. If you're anywhere near The Wine Club go visit them and tell 'em Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
From the Belching Beaver Brewery website: “Our Peanut Butter Milk Stout is simply irresistible. It’s like dark chocolate Reese’s in a glass! Rolled oats and Lactose add to the creamy body of this beer while heavenly aromas of roasted buttery peanuts and chocolate greet you with every sip. Try this out with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a real treat!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours very dark brown, nearly black with a large tan head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Peanut butter, dark chocolate, toffee and roasted malts.
Taste: Peanut butter, milk and dark chocolate, roasted malts, oats, Lactose and a very slight coffee flavor.
Overall: Creamy and smooth, Belching Beaver Brewery Peanut Butter Flavored Milk Stout is amazingly good. I had reservations about picking up this 5.3% ABV offering, but after hearing all the great reviews I decided I needed to pick this up (strictly for review purposes). I am VERY glad I did. All the flavors worked together and I’ve since pick up another bottle.
