Peanut Butter Milk Stout Left Hand Brewing Co. Review

Overall Score 6.2. Peanut Butter Milk Stout is a slightly above average stout that exceeds expectations of the 6.2% ABV, but it lacks bolder flavors. The peanut notes are light and barely noticeable. The saving grace is the Left Hand brews a decent beer…just not delicious ones.

Details

Brewery Insights: Peanut Butter Milk Stout brings together the obvious combination of milk chocolate and peanut butter. The end result is a deliciously dark duo, like an adult peanut butter cup.

Review

Overall Score: 6.2

PB Milk Stout provides the expected look, but it’s surprising how strong the peanut smell is on the nose. Unfortunately, the palate doesn’t match the nose as the peanut flavor is extremely subtle. The milk chocolate notes are moderate and slightly stronger than the peanut butter ones, which makes it comparable to most stouts. The creativity is limited, but it’s a solid drinking stout at a low ABV, which is difficult to find. The mouthfeel is light and crisp with limited booziness.

Degenerate Discussion

Peanut Butter Milk Stout proves nothing great comes in small packages. While this is tasty low ABV stout, it’s a missed opportunity to provide bolder, more delicious flavors that would come through with a higher ABV. Left Hand Brewery needs to stop teasing us and make a stronger stout. They are the literal definition of ‘just the tip.’ If they want to bring in more Degenerate business, they need to consider taking a step on the wild side…like anal…or if they want to keep it simple, they can just brew their beers 10% or higher. It’s not bad, but it’s not anal. Cheers Degenerates!
