We've always thought that whole "chocolate in my peanut butter/peanut butter in my chocolate" thing would have gone a lot smoother if there were beer involved. And this Peanut Butter Cup Stout proves it. Simply brew the rich recipe base and add your favorite powdered peanut butter to make the ultimate chocolate-peanut butter combo come true.
With an Imperial Stout base, this recipe unites a luxuriously jet black, substantial ale with flavors of rich chocolate and peanut butter. In other words...a decadent dessert in a glass. From the first sip, you can tell from the smooth, creamy mouthfeel and dense, mousse-like foam that this stout tastes like you'll be having another. There's a reason peanut butter cups come in pairs, and Peanut Butter Cup Stout is no exception. Try to drink just one...we dare you!
*For the safety of all our customers, Northern Brewer maintains a warehouse free of nut allergens, which means we are not able to include peanut products in this kit. To achieve the deepest peanut-buttery flavor, we recommend adding two 6.5 oz jars of your favorite powdered peanut butter (our Head Brewer prefers PB2). Since most of the oil has been extracted from the powder, you'll get a much creamier, smoother, flavorful beer than using real peanut butter or artificial extracts.
Thick body & mouthfeel
Pronounced peanut butter and chocolate flavor
Complex malt profile
*Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

I really wasn't sure what to expect with this. It sounde good, but every peanutbutter beer I have had was a disappointment to me. For some reason I thought I'd give this a try. As it turns out, its pretty damn good! I was surprised! It is a nice easy drinking beer with just the right blend of peanut butter. I drank the first five gallons so now I am ordering my second kit. Give it a try, it is a good beer!
This beer was truly one of my favorites of all time. I did end up using more powdered peanut butter than what it called for, hoping it would increase the PB flavor, but it smelled more of PB than it tasted like it. It is very subtle. The bitterness at the end is not too harsh either. If you like a darker beer, this one is a great one to try!! I will definitely be ordering this again!
Tastes very good nice head kit worked very well. Would do.again very
