Belching Beaver ‘Peanut Butter Latte’ Golden Nitro Stout


“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.”

Glassware: Tulip.

Appearance: Bold amber with a thumb of super creamy head which maintains its shape. Beautifully fine lace clings to the glass as we go.

Aroma: Smells incredible! Raw coffee beans emanate straight away with the slightly sweet nutty-ness of the peanut butter playing 2nd fiddle. We detect a bit of chilli/pink peppercorn too but it’s quite subdued. The latter kind of plays in to a spicy note alongside undertones of white chocolate and milk sugars, caramel, brioche, buttery pastry and apple pie. Some very unique scents here.

Flavour: Totally MIA. We can’t recall the last time we’ve ever been so intrigued by an aroma yet so let down by its flavour profile. It must have something to do with the nitro. All we get is this watered down mess of muted coffee and malty sweetness. Hardly any finish to it as it just slides off the palate in to no man’s land.

Mouthfeel: Thin, watery, minimal creaminess (which is somewhat expected from nitro). No booze, no body, no nothing.

Overall: Tell ya what if it wasn’t for the decent aroma we’d be absolutely panning this. Honestly we sipped enough to get the review done and poured the rest down the sink. Don’t waste your time or your hard-earned.
