==Introduction==

It’s peanut butter jelly time peanut butter jelly time! Where You at, Where You at? Now there ou go there you go, peanut butter jelly peanut butter jelly!! Damn. If PB Thursday wasn’t enough, they went ahead and added some jelly into the peanut butter mix! Granted, this is not Black Tuesday, but it might as well be. This beer since its inception was another beer that came from waayyyyy left field along with what White chocolate with cherries. I have to admit, the Bruery keeps pushing that damn limit of taste and experience forward and forward with every release. It’s a reason I am still a member of their reserve society for many years. This beer might just be the next favorite in the list of supremes for me from the Bruery. Time to take it to trial! Cheers!

Overall:

That baseball bat had nothingon this extremely bready, peanut butter and mixed berry jelly dessert. No fucking contest. This thing is definitely something that I think can stand toe to toe with the greats of Brury’s Weekday series, the White Chocolates and even more! I have no wordsleft to describe this glory of a beer. It is essentially something that I always wanted to see bottled. I have tried the few PB&J beers I could get my hands on and all were phenomenal, but this… this is just to the amazing super 4th or 5th dimension above. Get this beer if you can!!! They might still have it on tap as of August 2017!

Anime Corner:

Sash Lilac from Galaxy Trail Studios series, Freedom Planet! Was used in this pairing because a beer of this caliber definitely needed a character that paired greatly with my love for peanut butter and peanut butter jelly beers. Since I have been notorious to pair may favorite anime waifus in with some of the Bruery’s best, it was time that I brought her into the mix. What’s not to complement? Sash lilac is essentially that purple jelly that was missing from this peanut butter craze of mine. She is technically my new favorite addition to my already favorite list of top favorite anime characters only followed by Kos-mos, Temari, Yoruichi and Ryuko. She’s fast as hell and has a rightful sense of justice, she is humble and will stop at nothing to help out her friends and loved ones. Just the right character to pair a beer such as the this to the almighty Weekday series and above. This Peanut butter and jelly craze!

 

 

d-Unkle Peanut by Garage Brewing

 

Rating: 6/6

d-Unkle Peanut by Garage Brewing is a 4.8% ABV German Dunkel Weizen brewed with peanuts.

Label:

We believe in making our fresh craft beer from only the finest ingredients. And guess what? It’s really good! It’s a fun take on a classic Dunkle Weizen, and dedicated to your favorite Uncle that might just be a bit nutty.

==Introduction==

One of my favorite styles of beer when I first started, aside from the Belgian Quadrupel, was the Dunkelweizen or Dark Hefeweizen. It is not common but definitely common in Germany and one that often does not enough love in the beer world. However, when I saw that Garage Brewing made a Dunkelweizen, and one with peanuts no less, I had to bring it to the site. Peanut butter and peanut beers are awesome. Since Dunkels have a unique clove and banana spice flavor them, it would only be fitting that this work as a banana peanut butter beer. Let’s cher it out, cheers!
Aromas:

Rich roasted peanuts, banana, dark fruit, maple syrup, rye bread, vanilla, cashew milk, orange notes, mango notes, hazelnut nectar and peanut butter cookies.

Flavors:

Peanut butter, bananas, toffee, dulce de leche caramel, flan, clove spice, dark chocolate, dark fruit, hazelnut nectar, nutella, cadbury cream eggs, banana cream pie, marshmallows, nutter butter cookies, sweetened condensed milk, almond joy, rocky road ice cream, coriander spice, orange gummies, stone fruit hints, mango, maple syrup, rye bread, vanilla, cashew milk, captain crunch peanut butter cereal, Reese’s Peanut butter cereal, biscuit bread, Danish cream and cookie dough.
Aftertaste:

Very nice nutty peanut butter, hazelnut, nutella, chocolate, bananas, earthy notes, pecan pie and peanut buttery cookies. No alcohol in the taste. Brown body, smooth, creamy and velvety mouthfeel with a moderate drinkability.

Overall:

Perfect dunkel weisse, only if German law would allow, but because it does not, it does not need to. I find it awesome in my mind. Rich banana and peanut butter spicy and dark fruit goodness all around. It is nice to try something like this in a long time. I highly recommend it!
Anime Corner:

Sally Acorn from the Sonic The Hedgehog series was used in this pairing mainly since I wanted to try and find a character that is into nuts and well since I haven’t used her in pairings, I figure it was about time I paired her with her own beer.

 

The Nuttiest Professor by Avery Brewing Co.

 

Rating: 6/6 

The Nuttiest Professor by Avery Brewing Co. is a 15.6% ABV Imperial Stout brewed with peanuts and aged in bourbon barrels.

Description:
Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout with peanuts. This creamy and colossal peanut stout is nuts. But, our resident archaeologist, historian, brewer, and professor…he’s really nuts. Mad peanut science.

Over analyzing is nuts, taking a chill pill and enjoying some Peanut buttery goodness is what this is all about

Peanut Butter Latte from Belching Beaver

Rating: 7/7

Peanut Butter Latte from Belching Beaver is a 5% ABV Golden Stout brewed with Coffee, Chocolate and Peanut butter.

Label:
People love our Peanut Butter Milk Stout, and this time we put a fun twist on our classic. Thomas brewed up a milk stout that is golden in color, a real sensory trip, and loaded it with coffee and chocolate.

Then we kicked it up a notch by peanut-butterizing (is that a word?) the beer for a real treat for Winter months. Tom said, “A Peanut Butter Latte, that sounds great!” Perfect to sip on chilled nights and early mornings. We hope you enjoy this new adventure in brewing as much as we do.

==Introduction==

A White Stout?! And a Peanut butter one at that! The style is a pretty rare with the use of coffee, pale malts, and lactose gives the style some of the flavors of actual stouts but the appearance is golden like other beers. It is kind of a trick of the senses. Many of the golden stouts I have had before have been that, tastes like a stout, looks like a pale or golden beer. This one however, is the first one I have ever seen that uses other ingredients like peanut butter. While I cannot include the Red Velvet Stout from Ballast Point as a contender for Golden Stout as it is the same style but with red instead of gold, this is only for a beer that is golden in appearance. In fact, the style is awesome that I once took a shot in the dark and made a Golden Belgian Stout myself which turned out to be awesome. Anyways, the fact that this is the first of its kind it is definitely an intriguing one. Let’s have a look, cheers!

Aromas:
Rich peanut butter mocha, coffee, Danish cream, milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel, Kahlua Coffee Liqueur, toffee, tiramisu, Cadburry Cream eggs, Frappuccino, rocky road ice cream, almond joy, flan, sweetened condensed milk, nutter butter cookies, cookie dough ice cream, mazapan, Kahlua Coffee Liqueur, butterscotch, whipped cream and dark fruits.

Flavors:
Rich Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies, Reese’s Pieces, vanilla, caramel, rye bread, biscuit bread, sweetened condensed milk, flan, marshmallows, chocolate marshmallow smores, white chocolate, whipped cream, Irish cream, Danish cream, Milk Chocolate shake, Milk chocolate, Bakers chocolate, cherries, strawberries, butterscotch, almond milk, cashew milk, steamed milk, almond joy, marzipan, peanut brittle, nutter butter cookies, cookie dough ice cream, mazapan, Kahlua Coffee Liqueur, mocha, Cadbury cream egg notes, maple syrup, hazelnut nectar, nutella, rocky road ice cream, frappuccino, stone fruit hints and captain crunch peanut butter cereal.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with lots of sweet flavors of chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter, marshmallow, peanut brittle, mazapan, caramel, Irish cream, mocha, white chocolate, and cookie dough ice cream. No alcohol in the taste, gold and clear body, smooth, creamy, velvety and refreshing mouthfeel along with an extremely easy drinkability.

Overall:
Ridiculously pastry of a beer! Peanut Butter Tiramasu essentially. I am not sure what it is about the coffee or the fact that it is a different style but still a milk stout, it takes what I loved about the original Peanut Butter Milk stout and amps it up to a higher level. Many people that love the Peanut Butter milk stout will definitely find this one to be a step above. Lots of dessert and nutty flavors and a lot of complexity. I highly recommend it and this one is a bucket lister in my book.

Anime Corner:
Temari Sabakuno from the Naruto Series was used in this pairing since I would typically use one of my favorite characters to pair with a special beer that seems worthy. For this one, the blonde color of the stout for being a stout but a golden stout, pairs with Temari’s blonde hair. While Ninjas are quick and deadly, this beer is so sweet and smooth, you won’t notice anything until you finish the bottle in one sitting. Also, since ninjas are great at stealth, for this looking like a regular beer but tasting like a stout is a mind blow!

That Orange Wrapper by Four Sons Brewing

Rating: 6/6

That Orange Wrapper by Four Sons Brewing is an 8.6 % ABV Imperial Stout brewed with peanuts and chocolate.

Label:
Brewed with peanuts and chocolate, producing a luxurious mouthfeel followed by a decadent finish.

==Introduction==

Obtained this one at Mr. K’s Liquor in front of the Bruery. I have never heard of this one but seeing as it was a peanut butter beer, I had to bring it to the site. Peanut Butter beers are something of a guilty pleasure for me and the more I find them, the more I want to bring them to the site to compare to other peanut butter brews. 4 sons has been a definite hit for me especially after the many I have tried from them like the Coco, their Anniversary brew and the Up on the Roof. That is why when I saw this one I had to bring it to the site. I definitely wanted to see how good their peanut butter beer was. Let’s take a look, cheers!

Aromas:
Rich Chocolatey Peanut butter, roasted peanuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, Reeces Peanut butter cups, Peanut brittle, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, earthy hop notes, captain crunch peanut butter cereal, Cocoa Krispies, chocolate cake, rocky road ice cream, molasses, dark fruit currants, cherries, prunes, raisins, brownie batter, roasted coffee, mocha, espresso, vanilla, caramel and cookie dough.

Flavors:
Rich Reeces Pieces and Reeces Peanut butter cups, Peanut brittle, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, earthy hop notes, captain crunch peanut butter cereal, Cocoa Krispies, dark fruit currants, cherries, prunes, raisins, rye bread, molasses, anise, tobacco notes, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, chocolate mousse, fudge and peanut butter cake, brownie batter, roasted coffee, mocha, espresso, vanilla, caramel, roasted peanuts, rocky road, cookie dough and peanut butter ice cream, flan, toasted coconut hints, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, cashew hints, nutter butter cookies, peanut butter cheesecake and double chocolate cake.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with unsweetened peanut butter flavor and roasted and earthy peanuts, lots of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, vanilla, caramel and cookie dough ice cream. No alcohol in the taste, dark full body, smooth, creamy, chewy and velvety mouthfeel and a moderate drinkability.

Overall:
Damn succulent! The peanut butter chocolate in the finish truly lasts for days. While I still love many of the other peanut butter beers I have had in the past, this one is damn insane. Like if they actually melted Reese’s peanut butter cups into the beer. It is insane! It is not a diabeetus cloying sweet beer but actually an earthy and roasty, real peanut butter taste. They really hit the nail on the head with this one and I highly recommend it!

Anime Corner:
Ryuko Matoi from Kill La Kill was used in this pairing mainly for the colors of the beer. I know she is mainly Red and Black but under the certain lighting, she can have some orange to her. That and I loved this beer so much, I brought one of my favorite anime girls to the site again. In a way, Senketsu (The sentient living clothing she wears) is almost like the wrapper holding the sweetness together.

Peanut Butter Dark Seas by Mission Brewery

15325317_10103803534498340_4484081246687087118_oRating: 6/6

Peanut Butter Dark Seas by Mission Brewery is 9.8% ABV Russian Imperial Stout brewed with Peanut Butter.

Label:
Since the very first batch, the recipe for Mission Dark Seas has remained unchanged. The classic, award winning Imperial Stout is rich in toasted coffee, chocolate and all those bold roasted flavors. WE have added peanut butter for a rich, creamy taste sensation. Peanut Butter Dark Seas; Just as amazing as the original, but with a nostalgic twist.

==Introduction==
15385508_10103803534418500_1322740757984631632_o
A limited release from Mission Brewery. It has been a long time since I tried the Missions Dark Seas and the Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Seas. Both are world class beers and definitely some of the best. When I first saw they had released a peanut butter version I nearly flipped. While I haven’t had too many of the Missions brews, they are always amazing! I am not sure if this is the same as their Captain Crunch Peanut butter version they had on tap but it would make sense as the Captain is a captain of a ship. Pirates or not, it would sure fit. Let’s have a look at this one, cheers!

Aromas:
Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, peanut butter, nutter butter cookies, roasted peanuts, Reece’s peanut butter cup, vanilla, roasted coffee, mocha, pralines, hazelnut nectar, dark fruit currants, prunes, raisins, rye bread, molasses, anise, tobacco notes, rocky road ice cream, marshmallows, graham cracker smores, toasted coconuts and brown sugar.
15391362_10103803534218900_7151819179734936869_o
Flavors:
Rich peanut brittle, roasted peanuts, real peanut butter, nutter butter cookies, Reece’s peanut butter cup, captain crunch peanut butter cereal, vanilla, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, rocky road ice cream, marshmallows, graham cracker smores, toasted coconuts, coffee cake, flan, dark fruit currants, prunes, raisins, rye bread, molasses, anise, tobacco notes, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, caramel, roasted coffee, mocha, pralines, hazelnut nectar, walnuts, macadamia nuts, almond milk, roasted barley, bananas, dark cherry hints, chocolate mousse, fudge and peanut butter cake and brown sugar.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with lots of nutty unsweetened peanut butter flavor, roasted coffee, dark fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel and roasted barley bitterness. No alcohol in the taste, dark full body, smooth, creamy, chewy and velvety mouthfeel and a moderate drinkability.
15419796_10103803534173990_3800637196670978626_o
Overall:
Damn insane. Very exceptional brew. Yes, it is not barrel aged but the peanut butter flavors and chocolate are ridiculous. Overall, the beer is very complex and it does appear that they are using real peanut butter and not peanut butter flavoring. Either that or peanut flour. I am not sure, but regardless, the semi-sweet peanut butter and chocolate flavors from this one are definitely unique from other peanut butter beers. Not to detract from other peanut butter beers as they are all amazing, but this one definitely stands on its own. Also, the Russian Imperial style and flavors complements the peanut butter and chocolate flavors so well! Highly recommended.
15392939_10103803534223890_3617312596208409118_o
Anime Corner:
Franco il Nero (Cyan hair) and Donne Annonime (Blonde hair) from Outlaw Django Tre Donne Crudeli as well as Nitro+ Cross over of Ignis from Jingai Makyo and Al-Azif from Demonbane were used in this pairing mainly since I used Franco and Donne in the original and Bourbon Barrel aged version of Dark seas. Like finding the treasure. This beer is a treasure in itself. The addition of the other characters was mainly for the sake of using new art work to pair with the beer. I must say that they pair really well with the flavors and the colors of the ingredients this feels like it has. Especially the complexity. Overall though, they all come from the same company, Nitro+ so I like how this turned out.

This creamy and crazy ale takes our Burnt Fog Smoked Porter recipe, drops the smoked malt and adds peanut butter, chocolate and lactose sugar. The combination produced a creamy peanut butter cup of a beer fitting of a celebration and capable of easing the winter doldrums. Nukin’ Futz was brewed for our 3rd anniversary on New Year’s Eve but will continue as an occasional release.

==Introduction==

I first tried this beer at the first BeerBumz beer session when I was introduced to the group by my friend Augie Escobedo. We went to his friend’s house and many brought different beers. I brought my home brew which I am glad many loved. Someone had brought this one in and I had remembered so that when I finally saw a bottle of this for sale, I had to get it and bring it to the site. This is the first beer I try from Track Seven in Sacramento and what a great way to start. I will look for their other beers too. Let’s take a look, cheers!

Aromas:
Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, dark fruit raisins, currants, peanut butter, vanilla, marshmallows, peanut butter chocolate smores, lactose milk sugar, Irish cream, walnut pie, praline ice cream, cashew butter notes, candi sugar, chocolate mousse, molasses, chocolate mint, earthy hop notes, Nutter Butter cookies, hazelnut nectar, Reese’s peanut butter cup hints.

Aftertaste:
Finishes with peanut butter chocolate sweetness, dark fruit hints, earthy hop hints, vanilla, smores, and pecan pie hints. No alcohol in the taste, Dark crimson medium body, creamy, velvety, smooth and mild mouthfeel with an easy drinkability.

Overall:
An exceptional, and awesomely delicious brew. Extra credit for this one goes because of the fact that to me, they really hit high marks with this one since I like nutty beers and this one is exactly that, super nutty and chocolatey. That and I was hooked when I first tried it back then. It may not seem like much at first glance but wait till you try it. Definitely give this one a shot and grab a couple!

Anime Corner:
Makoto Nanaya from Blazblue was paired perfectly with this beer because not only did I want to show the label colors, but she is a nutty girl. She is a squirrel and squirrels love nuts. Heck she goes crazy for them. Either way, with the rich flavors of peanut butter that are given from this beer, I couldn’t think of any other awesome characters to pair this beer with.

¡Viva La Beaver! By Belching Beaver

13557900_10103365180812640_2953433082388971184_nRating: 6.5/7

¡Viva La Beaver! By Belching Beaver is a 7.5% ABV Sweet/Milk Stout brewed with Peanut Butter, and Mexican Chocolate.

Label:

We made this beer originally for the SD Tap Room in Pacific Beach as their 8th Anniversary beer. Marc Truex set it all up. It became our highest rated beer (until Pound Town). Thomas kept asking to make it again but we never ad tank space. Now that we opened the new Oceanside facility we can make many more styles. Troy said he wanted to start a Milk Stout series, we decided to start with this one. It’s Mexican Chocolate. It’s peanut butter. The Beaver has a cool mustache. What’s not to like? I wanted to call it “Livin La Beaver Loca”, but I was outvoted.

Cheers!

Tom

13580478_10103365180752760_3416767340637390996_o

When I first saw this beer, I literally went insane. I love the Peanut butter milk stout they make and overall peanut butter beers. I have had so many delicious Mexican Choco Stouts as well that have definitely blown me away. Now when I saw Belching Beaver decided to mix up the 2 and bottle it, it was a mind blow! I was able to get this one early as I purchased it at CraftShack.com but I know it will be around here locally soon. I just couldn’t wait to bring it to the site which is what made me so excited. So I am happy to present, the review to this awesome new entry from Belching Beaver. Salucita!

Aromas:

Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Chocolate abuelita, German Chocolate, Fudge Chocolate, Baker’s chocolate, Reese’s Peanut butter cups, marshmallows, Peanut Butter, Mazapan, pan dulce, capirotada raisin bread pudding, pecan pie, dark fruit raisins, prunes, currants, blackberry notes, hazelnut nectar, almond milk, almond milk, chocolate mousse, Champurrado Maize drink, chocolate bananas, , nutter butter cookies, toffee, roasted coffee notes, mocha and fruit cake.

Flavors:

Lots of rich Peanut Butter, Mazapan, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Chocolate abuelita, German Chocolate, Fudge Chocolate, Baker’s chocolate, dulce de leche caramel, cajeta, flan, cinnamon, fruit cake, roasted peanuts with the shells, nutter butter cookies, toffee, roasted coffee notes, mocha, lactose milk sugar, buttered rye toasted bread, Reese’s Peanut butter cups, marshmallows, chocolate peanut butter smores, pan dulce, capirotada raisin bread pudding, pecan pie, dark fruit raisins, prunes, currants, blackberry notes, hazelnut nectar, almond milk, chocolate mousse, Champurrado Maize drink, Chocolate Atole and chocolate bananas.

Aftertaste:

Finishing with super rich Reese’s Chocolate Peanut butter cups if they were made with dark chocolate and abuelitas chocolate. Lots of hints of dulce de leche, mazapan, dark fruits, marshmallowss, champurrado and nutter butter cookies. No alcohol in the taste. Deep dark abyss body, rich, velvety, smooth, creamy and syrupy mouth feel with a moderate drinkability.

Overall:

Madre de Dios! Supremely exceptional. This is definitely one of the best if not the best Peanut Butter Milk Stout I have ever had. This one definitely reminds me of Ramuri’s Peanut butter stout from Tijuana. Although the Mexican Chocolate definitely brings it to a newer level and really compliments the beer overall. This is something I will definitely get again and stash several bottles of. So much so that I would suggest you do the same if you loved the original peanut butter milk stout. Highly recommended.

Anime Corner:

Original Mexican characters by Daniel Heron of Deviantart.com, Cham Cham from Samurai Showdown and Annet Myer from El Viento were all used in reference to the Mexican themed beer that we have here as well as all the colors to fit the label. Also, the anthropomorphic characters from the first picture and Cham Cham fit with the little Mexican beaver. The attire from Annet and the girl fit with old school indigenous and revolutionary gear wore in the pre modern eras.

Obtained this one through one of the many awesome trades with my friend Aaron Mendiola at www.beermetaldude.com. This is indeed, the Karate Kid beer. For many that do not know about the original 1980’s classic, Cobra Kai was the dojo for martial arts where the antagonist sensei John Kreese was the master. He taught his student Johnny Lawrence to “sweep the leg” of the protagonist Daniel LaRusso during the match near the end of the movie which caused Daniel to almost lose the match, was it not for Mr. Miagi’s awesome healing. Anyways, this tribute is for the dojo and the movie and seeing as it is one of a kind, I am glad I was able to get this to the site thanks to my friend Aaron. Much awesomeness! Cheers a many!

Aromas:
Rich roasty notes of barley, coffee, Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Irish cream, mocha coffee, espresso, nutter butter cookies, dark fruit notes of raisins, cherries currants, vanilla, pecan pie, hazelnut chocolate mousse, peanut butter and brown sugar.

Flavors:
Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted barley, peanut butter, peanut brittle, earthy hop notes, chocolate mousse, dark fruit raisins, currants, cherry, vanilla, molasses, roasted peanuts, pecan pie, hazelnut nectar hints, walnuts, pralines, caramel, butterscotch hints, Irish cream, mocha coffee, espresso, nutter butter cookies and lactose milk sugar sweetness.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with a nutty unsweetened peanut butter flavor, dark fruit, dark chocolate, earthy hop and roasted barley bitterness. No alcohol in the taste, dark full body, smooth, creamy and velvety mouthfeel and an easy to moderate mouthfeel.

Overall:
A very good beer displaying more characteristics of actual peanut butter than natural peanut butter flavorings like some of the other beers I have had. Basically more of a peanut and nuttiness which is very pleasant for those that do not like absolute sweetness in their beers. It reminded me of my home brew as I did actually add the dry peanut butter in the primary fermentation as they did as well so the outcome is great. I am glad I did something right and this beer proves it. An awesome beer especially if you love peanut butter beers but also Karate Kid.

Anime Corner:
Ranma Saotome and Shampoo from Ranma ½ were used in this pairing to pair with the colors of the label, martial arts and sweep the leg as you can see Ranma do so in the artwork. In this case however, Shampoo, the hot Amazonian with the blue hair is the antagonist in this case where as Ranma is the protagonist. Interesting how it is the opposite of the movie. However, in recent film theory, there is information showing that Daniel was the true antagonist. Check this video out to see what I mean

Peanut butter Jelly Time Remix! Baseball bats is where its at and break it down!

This is the second time I get to try a peanut butter and jelly beer. The firs one I tried was the John Paul Jones Peanut Butter & Raspberry Jelly Imperial Stout by Brew Rebellion which was awesome. Funny thing though, is that I was actually looking for this one way before that one came out. So now that I have a bit of taste experiences in the PBJ Sandwich beer department, I want to see how this one compares to the other one. This one being a porter should indeed be different from the stout but let us see just how different. I am glad I was able to find this beer along with Maggie’s Blackberry Cobbler. Wish we could get more Terrapin beers in the west coast. Cheers!

Aromas:
Rich peanut butter, butterscotch, Reese’s peanut butter cup cereal, nutter butter cookies, roasted peanuts, candi sugar, brown sugar, mocha, lactose milk, molasses, anise, hazelnut, butter pecan ice cream, toffee, dulce de leche caramel, dark fruit raisins, black berries, blue berries, black cherries, currants, plums, cherry cheesecake, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, banana notes, rocky road ice cream, rock candy and rye toast.

Flavors:
Tart raspberries, rich smooth peanut butter, butter pecan ice cream, toffee, dulce de leche caramel, dark fruit raisins, black berries, blue berries, black cherries, currants, plums, cherry cheesecake, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, banana notes, wine grape hints, choco flan, cocoa crispies, oatmeal cookies, coffee cake, Reese’s peanut butter cup cereal, nutter butter cookies, roasted peanuts, candi sugar, brown sugar, mocha, lactose milk, molasses, anise, hazelnut, toasted rye bread, marshmallows, vanilla and raspberry ice cream.

Aftertaste:
Leaving with good hints of peanut butter, dark fruit and tart raspberries, dark chocolate, marshmallows, vanilla, caramel and cookies. No alcohol in the tasted, smooth, creamy, silky and velvet mouthfeel, easy to drink and a pitch black full body with crimson head.

Overall:
Just as exquisitely exceptional as the Joseph James Peanut Butter and Raspberry Jelly Stout but with this one focusing more on the dark fruits and tart raspberries where as the other one is more chocolate goodness but both still head forth with that rich peanut butter and raspberry jelly flavors forward. I really don’t mind the so called natural flavors and such and for many who don’t try craft beer, this would be pure gold. Pick it up, this is a very rich magic potion. Where You at? It’s peanut butter Jelly time!

Anime Corner:
Hell Knight Ingrid from Taimanin Asagi was used in this pairing as she represents so much of the colors in the peanut butter and jelly as well as the complex flavors and sweetness of strength delivered in the beer as mentioned in my description. The pinks for the raspberries, the dark skin of chocolate and peanut butter, the purples and blues for the complex dark fruits and essentially since it is a dessert beer like liquid bliss, her sexiness empowers the beers just that much more!

John Paul Jones Peanut Butter & Raspberry Jelly by Brew Rebellion is a 10.2% ABV Imperial Stout brewed with Raspberries and Peanut Butter.

Label:
Everyone Enjoys a rebellious spirit now and again.

==Introduction==

It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time, Peanut Butter Jelly Time! Where you at? Where You at? Now there you go, There you go! Peanut butter Jelly, peanut butter Jelly and a baseball bat!

Holy shit! I went to pick up my local order of Bruery beers and stopped by the shop near by. This took me by surprise as it was hidden away in a box but caught my eye as I saw the different colored wax on the beer. I thought to myself, well, this must be something special cuz it is probably going to be expensive. I saw what it was, a peanut butter and raspberry jelly beer and I did not hesitate to buy it. At 1 per customer, I was like damn it!! I needed to get another one or two but I figured, well I will come back. Apparently they released this in very small quantities to limited places. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Now I have tried many great and awesome peanut butter chocolate milk stouts but never one that was a peanut butter and jelly mix. I can only hope this is as awesome as my crazy mind thought it would be. Let’s check this out and cheers to all!

Aromas:
Super Rich peanut butter and Raspberry Jelly aromas, lactose milk sugar, molasses, dark fruit raisins, black berries, blue berries, black cherries, currants, plums, cherry cheesecake, choco flan, bananas, vanilla, caramel, roasted peanuts with shells, nutter butter cookies, toffee, coffee cake, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, earthy notes, Reese’s peanut butter puffs cereal, coconut hints, marshmallows, graham cracker smores and rocky road ice cream hints.

Flavors:
Rich peanut butter, Rich Raspberry Jelly, toasted rye bread, bananas, vanilla, caramel, roasted peanuts with shells, nutter butter cookies, toffee, coffee cake, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, earthy notes, Reese’s peanut butter puffs cereal, lactose milk sugar, molasses, dark fruit raisins, black berries, blue berries, black cherries, currants, plums, cherry cheesecake, choco flan, whipped cream, Irish cream hints, coconut hints, marshmallows, graham cracker smores, rocky road ice cream hints, dark chocolate, cocoa crispies, brown sugar, candi sugar, rock candy, oatmeal cookies, mocha hints and hazelnut nectar.

Aftertaste:
Rich peanut butter and dark fruit raspberry and other berry mixed lingers along with caramel, vanilla, hazlnut, earthy hints, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and flan hints. No alcohol in the taste, super easy to drink despite the ABV, smooth, creamy, velvet and silky mouthfeel with a pitch black and crimson surface (under the light) full body.

Overall:
WOW, Simply put, they were not joking when they were trying to get the exact! Flavors of peanut butter and Jelly. Although, this is way more than just that. There is so much rich complexity of flavors going on but none of it is intimidating and at the rate of being dangerously drinkable, it is pretty damn crazy. I will need to find more bottles of this and definitely think I will try to mimic the recipe somehow. I highly recommend this one!

Anime Corner:
Temari Sabakuno and Yoruichi Shihouin from Naruto and Bleach respectively were used in this pairing since I wanted to pair them with the colors of the peanut butter and jelly. They are 2 of my favorite anime characters and so using them in this pairing was awesome for me. Their colors also represent other flavors of the beer such as the chocolate, vanilla, waffle cone, coconut, flan, dark fruits and other sweet flavors colonthree emoticon

Peanut Butter Milk Stout by Belching Beaver Brewery is a 5.3% ABV Milk/Sweet Stout brewed with peanut butter flavors

Label:
It’s All about the Beaver 

Belching Beaver Brewery’s Peanut Butter Milk Stout. Feel Free to use it for Ice Cream floats. We made this beer for fun, and it has become a local favorite. So we thought, may as well bottle some. This beer says, even hard working Beavers can play around once in a while. We hope you love it too. If you do, let us know on Facebook if you don’t, call Troy directly and tell him. His head is getting just a little too big around the brew pad anyway.

This beer is refreshingly smooth. Tastes if roasted coffee, chocolate and peanut butter. Brewed with rolled pats and lactose, this beer has a silky smooth mouth feel finish. Don’t let the color fool you; this dark beer is easy drinking

Cheers,

Tom

As requested by my friend Oscar, I had to bring this one forth to the site. There have been very few peanut butter beers except for the awesome cocoa crispies tasting peanut butter cup porter from Karl Strauss or the the liquid bliss from Terrapin that I conciser awesome. I figure that getting this one is a good opportunity to bring forth another rare piece of craft brew recipe forward. Thanks for the beers Oscar 😀

Aromas:
Damn good peanut butter Reese’s butter cup aromas, dark chocolate, Milk chocolate, vanilla, peanut brittle, rye bread, mocha coffee, nutter butter peanut butter cookies, milk sugar, caramel, toffee and mild earthy notes

Flavors:
Lots of roasted peanuts with shells, peanut butter, nutter butter cookies, toffee, roasted coffee, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, earthy hops, Reese’s peanut butter puffs cereal, buttered rye toast notes, lactose milk sugar, and molasses

Aftertaste:
Peanut butter, rye hints, earthy hops and coffee notes linger. Nice a smooth, easy drinking and no alcohol in the taste.

Overall:
Great beer! Even if only 5.3% ABV, it set to what is supposed to do, taste like peanut butter and coffee bitterness for balance. Despite the fact that it says natural flavors or Ethyl alcohol (which created upon fermentation), do not believe the the artificiality. There is nothing artificial about this beer. It is craft brewed to perfection, set out to what it was intended, and that is rich dark roasty peanut butter and chocolate coffee flavors. Highly recommended. This one really is closer to peanut butter than the other other beers I have tried.

Anime Corner:
Makoto Nanaya from Blazblue was paired perfectly with this beer because not only did I want to show the label colors, but she is a nutty girl. She may not be a beaver, but she is a squirrel and squirrels love nuts. You can see how she tears up pine cones like she tears up nuts. Either way, with the rich flavors of peanut butter that are given from this beer, I couldn’t think of any other awesome characters to pair this beer with.

Peanut Butter Cup Porter by Karl Strauss brewing

Peanut Butter Cup Porter by Karl Strauss brewing is a 5.6% ABV English Porter brewed with Peanut butter, cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for San Diego Beer Week 2012 An English-style Brown Porter brewed with organic peanut powder, cocoa nibs, and vanilla beans.

___

On my trip to San Diego last weekend, my friends and I also stopped by Karl Strauss and tried several of their beers. While I liked a good majority of them and have tried many before, including this one, I was greatly pleased that they allowed this one to be growler filled. Since the first time I tried it long ago, I never really got a chance to do a review and at the time I did not think of doing reviews on the go like I am doing now. So with the opportunity to bring this one home and take my time to review it, here it is! Now, I had a couple of peanut butter cup beers before like the Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout, the Terrapin Liquid Bless and even Mother Earth Sin Tax. This one on the other hand, though English and light, takes advantage of the cocoa nibs and vanilla beans. A combo that fares greatly with many beers. So without further a do, here is the Peanut Butter Cup Porter, Cheers!

Aromas:
Rich Peanut butter, Nutter Butter Cookies, oatmeal, banana hints, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, hint of dark fruit raisins, cocoa crispies, milk sugars, mild cherries, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, dark cherries, cinnamon, mocha, vanilla, toffee, coconut and butterscotch.

Flavors:
Cocoa Crispies cereal, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, hazelnut, pecan pie hints, peanut butter chocolate Reece’s pieces, milk sugar, vanilla, caramel, oatmeal, Nutter Butter cookies, cinnamon hints, brown sugar, dark fruit raisins and mild cherries, roasted coffee notes, peanut shell bitterness, rye bread,mocha, toffee, toasted coconut, earthy notes and butterscotch hints.

Aftertaste:
chocolate peanut butter, dark chocolate, mocha hints, roasted coffee, vanilla, caramel, toasted coconut, ending with earthy notes dryness. No alcohol in the taste, easy to drink, creamy and buttery mouthfeel and medium to light body.

Overall:
Definitely exceeding my expectations a bit. Is this the better Peanut Butter Cup beer? Well, the addition of the cocoa nibs and vanilla beans can be sensed in the flavors and definitely does take the beer to the next level. I really can say I enjoyed this one a lot for what it is. There aren’t many peanut butter beers out there and this is a damn well represented one. All I hope is that one day they put this in bottle. Otherwise, if you are lucky, you can get this at the brewery.

Anime Corner:
Yui Takamura from Muv Luv Alternative/Total Eclipse was used for this pairing since her colors pair with the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter I have paired her with Liquid Bliss once so I wanted to bring her back to show a more chocolate perspective. While the strength is not on the beer per se, it surely is in the flavor. Surely that is explosive!

Sin Tax by Mother Earth Brewing

1005839_10101588108779240_1403404449_nRating: 5/5

Sin Tax by Mother Earth Brewing is an 8.1% ABV Peanut Butter Imperial Stout 

Label:
Why does something so seemingly wrong, have to be so suspiciously right? Something that creeps up on you like lipstick-red nails running up your back, exciting your senses and leaving a lasting impression that keeps you coming back. We used that experience to create Sin Tax.

Premium British crystal and roasted malts meld with a Maris Otter base and American hops, giving way to a brown sugar and peanut butter essence that finishes beautifully. Call it our guilty pleasure. It’s delectable.

Another awesome peanut butter beer. Peanut butter flavored beers are far few in between. One I tried from the East Coast (Liquid Bliss by terrapin), the Karl Strauss Peanut butter cup beer on tap, the Belching beaver Peanut butter milk stout and now this one. I am definitely loving this trend. Each one very different though offering more chocolate or more peanut butter or a good balance of both. This one has been released in many places and I have found it in Total Wine and more, Ramirez Liquors and now even Uncle Henry’s Deli in Downey California. If you get a chance to find this beer, definitely get it. Mother Earth Brewing of San Diego is a growing company and the more they sell the more they will make to reach different people.

Aromas:
Cocoa Crispies and Reese’s peanut butter cup cereal in coffee instead of milk. Rich peanut butter, dark chocolate, mocha, rich brown sugar, earthy notes, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins hints, marshmallow, butter and honey on toast.

Flavors:
Forward roasty coffee beans, Chocolate, peanut butter, earthy notes, Reese’s peanut butter cup cereal, cocoa crispies, coffee, rich brown sugar, mocha, toffee, raisin hints, marshmallow and peanut butter on toast dipped in double espresso coffee with mild nutella hints. 

Aftertaste:
Leaves with more roasted coffee bean and earthy flavors than the peanut butter and dark chocolate but they do linger for a bit which is sweet. A sipping beer with no alcohol in the taste. Full silky and creamy mouth feel. Extra points for that peanut butter and chocolate though.

Overall:
Great beer with enough peanut butter to make it interesting. The balance of roasted malt and sweet peanut butter chocolate is much better so it isn’t overly sweet. Although, there is more coffee than peanut here. Great stuff none the less and a perfect beer.

Anime Corner:
Scanty and Knee-socks, the Demon Sisters from the Panty and Stocking show I chose for this pairing for a couple of reasons. To represent the devil girl on the label, Sin-Tax as an act of collecting debt from the sinners, and the fact that the Demon Sisters always go by their own Rules or RURU. So in the case of the beer, they are out on a mission to collect this debt with sweet vengeance holding flavors of peanut butter on one hand and chocolate on the other. Let’s not forget the Cinnamon spice and brown sugar of their demeanor. Kick Ass!!
