A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #1004 – Belching Beaver – Peanut Butter Milk Stout

So then Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout. A lot to unpack about this as a beer. But that’s just busy work, I’m going to pass over all that and get straight to it.

Don’t let the color fool you.

Craft beer in a can of 355ml, with beer that is 5.3% ABV, which is  about 159 calories a serve, and 1.46 standard drinks in NZ.

Brewed by Belching Beaver in the style that is the  Stout – Sweet and they do that in San Diego, California, ‘Merica!

BB PB&S of course

This beer is refreshingly smooth, tasting of roasted coffee, chocolate and peanut butter.

Brewed with rolled oats and lactose, this beer has a silky-smooth mouth-feel finish.

Don’t let the color fool you.

This dark beer is easy-drinking.

So, What could possibly go wrong?

Well it’s very cold having been in the fridge far too long, so I’m going to attempt to get it to a better place by listening to some fine music, and preparing the pizza for dinner, all of which you needed to know, of course.

The aroma is peanut butter!!! And that creamy oats thing that I was kind of expecting. It’s dark too, very dark, with a lovely firm head that looks thick and luxurious.

Oh it starts off so well, the aroma is peanuts, and that oats waft.
And it looks brilliant.
But then it falls away as it’s not full enough and somewhat thin and disappointing on the palate.
It’s not all bad that peanut hit is nice enough for you to keep enjoying this, as novel beer, but not as a serious stout

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. Aroma and Looks alone can’t really save this as a stout, but that peanut thing was nice and stayed the course, and what’s wrong with that?

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? The liquorland near me had them
  • Am I enjoying it? I am as a novelty beer, but I can’t take it seriously because of it’s flaws
  • Would I have another?  There’s only so much peanuts a man needs, so no.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? This would be a beer that would get you talking, because it is rather nicely done, that peanut thing is present and front and centre, so it it what it says it is, for me thought it’s short in fullness and stumbles for enjoyment.

SWEET STOUT

Dark brown to black in colour. Sweet stouts come in three main varieties – milk stout, oatmeal stout, and foreign stout. Milk stouts are made with the addition of lactose, and are sweet, low-alcohol brews. Oatmeal lends a smooth fullness of body to stouts, while foreign stouts are stronger (6.5-8% abv) and have a sweet malt profile and high esters. All of the sweet stouts are noted for their restrained roastiness in comparison with other stouts, and low hop levels.
