The guys at Midwest encountered this beer out at the National Home Brewers Conference earlier this year. Upon the first taste this appears to be a great stout, but then your palate gets a surprise assault. After the familiar stout flavors cross your palate you are presented with a peanut blast that lingers on your tongue. The combination is one you will not soon forget. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The kit does not include the two 6.5oz jars of peanut butter powder required to make the recipe, but can be purchased separately here. You can always omit the peanut butter powder, it will still make an excellent chocolate stout. Due to the oil and fat content, we do not recommend using regular peanut butter. The powder is a key ingredient.

5.0 / 5.03 ReviewsUnique, enjoyable stoutHave made this a few times. Always a hit with those it is shared with. A bigger grain bill which pushes the limits of my system, but I work with it. Next time I may barrel age it for a bit to see how the flavors play.December 28, 2017Purchased
9 months agoDelicious!This beer has a good chocolate flavor, and an aftertaste reminiscent of a peanut butter cup. It is a new favorite of mine. You do have to purchase the peanut butter powder separately.January 4, 2018Best Chocolate Peanut Butter BeerThis beer is amazing! We used one jar of plain powdered peanut butter and one jar of powdered chocolate peanut butter, and it turned out dang awesome! Nice and complex, creamy, not bitter at all, perfect mix of peanut butter and chocolate--just plain perfect. I'll definitely be getting this one again.May 9, 2018Purchased

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 4 answersI've made this once but was not happy with the lack peanut butter taste. I actually used twice the suggested amount and still did not live up to expectations. My question is if would actually put the pbw in the last 5-10 minutes of the boil do you think the taste would be more profound?How long did you let this sit in the bottles?BEST ANSWER: This is a stout. They are better with age. Also, it takes the yeast more time to eat all the sugar. I am letting mine age in secondary for at least on month. I have added the PB and cacao, but will wait with nibs until 7 days before bottling. I do not use all of the sugar as stouts should not be highly carbed. I will then let it sit in the bottle at least one month. I find 2 weeks not enough to carb it right and stouts benefit from age.What are the ingredients/ grain bill in this kit? I need to avoid lactose and wanBEST ANSWER: There is no lactose in this beer kit.
