This was another beer that I had on the Big Island. While Val and I were there, we took a trip to Volcano National Park. There was a lot of smoke, but not a huge amount of lava. Obviously since we went, that situation has changed a lot. Anyways, let’s see how this beer was.
Style: Milk/Sweet Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “America’s Favorite Peanut Butter Milk Stout: this silky-smooth beer put us on the map. Troy came up with the idea of combining Peanut Butter with our Beaver’s Milk Stout and he nailed it. Don’t let the dark color fool you, this beer is delightfully easy to drink with cascading aromas of roasted peanuts, dark chocolate and coffee. We appreciate your continued support for helping make this style our #1 seller.”
Random: This is a year-round offering from the brewery.
The beer poured with a thick, one finger, tan head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown color with no visible carbonation due to the dark color. The nose was filled with roasted malts, peanut butter and espresso. There was a touch of lactose as well. The taste was even better. It was like a peanut butter cup version of a beer. There was lots of authentic peanut butter with dark chocolate shavings and espresso. The body was on the thick side with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy and sticky finish with peanut butter and chocolate. This beer was outstanding and I would definitely have it again.
