While Belching Beaver has only been in the San Diego craft beer scene for just over three years now, they have definitely made their mark with signatures such as Beaver’s Milk Stout and Hop Hwy IPA. We are sure that many of you beer loving humans out there have tasted Belching Beaver’s award-winning Peanut Butter Milk Stout, so here is a great new spin on it! Try out their Honey Butter, on the menu in their North Park, SD tasting room. It is one-half Me So Honey, a Honey Wheat Ale, and one-half Peanut Butter Milk Stout. The result is a remarkably smooth, root beer-esk brew that leaves us wanting more!
Me So Honey: ABV: 5.5%, IBU: 19
Peanut Butter Milk Stout: ABV: 5.3%, IBU: 30
Appearance: The Honey Butter pours a very dark brown color with a small white head that settles down and leaves nice lacing as you drink. The beer is not opaque, but the Peanut Butter Stout defiantly overpowers the Honey Wheat in terms of appearance.
Aroma: The Peanut Butter Stout shines through here with hints of oats and roasted peanuts. Also notes of dark chocolate.
Taste: Honey Wheat Ale and Peanut Butter Stout mix extremely well. Starts off with a hint of honey and wheat but soon moves to milky and creamy. The dark chocolate, oats, lactose and peanuts create a great combination that leaves the drinker with something reminiscent of a stouty, milky, root beer float finish. Not too sweet with the right amount of flavor.
Mouthfeel: This brew is very easy to drink. Lightly carbonated with flavors that are smooth and not overpowering.
Overall: This is a great beer for everyone. Starts out with honey wheat and then transitions to more of a milk stout with notes of chocolate and peanuts. Very creamy and enjoyable and good for anytime of day. Great way to spice up your next visit to Belching Beavers tasting room and also pairs great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! It’s all about the Beaver!
Tasting Room: North Park 4223 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104
