The widely acceptable hominid texts observed by the populous of this terrestrial sphere concur that it came into being approximately 4.54 billion years ago, relatively one-third the age of the universe, amassing from the solar nebula. Several measurements of cosmic temporal length later, the Olmec civilization of Earth in Southeast Mexico discovered the acclaimed phenomenon often cited as “Chocolate“. In a period postliminary to the Olmec, a human North American scientist identified as George Washington Carver, created an early form of a commonly consumed substance called “Peanut Butter”, whilst another Homo sapient regarded as Henry Johnson of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, of the land of London conceptualized the alcoholic beverage known as a “Milk Stout”. In the most recent 1095.75 revolutions of this planet around its sun, the brewers of Earth have recurrently embraced the soothing prowess of the milk stout to ease and assist those of their fellow humanoids that may experience intimidation and consternation when in the presence of obsidian hued alcoholic beverages contrived of malted grain.
Lactose is an unfermentable sugar that frequently gives milk stouts a delectable, creamy sweetness, and when paired with peanut butter and chocolate, history demonstrates that we’re in for nothing but a win-win-win situation. Garage Brewing’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Milk Stout pours dark and thick with a caramel colored, hefty head that fans out into itty-bitty bubbles, and leaves a plush lacing on the glass. Ambrosial and aromatic on the nose, the Peanut Butter richness is indisputable and paves the way with anticipation for the rich flavor to follow. The notes of chocolate and coffee make for an enjoyable full-bodied flavor, that finishes with a dry nutty taste that is surprisingly long standing and not too sweet on the palate. The notably light mouthfeel makes this an incredibly easy to drink stout, and it plainly holds its own with a solid ABV of 7.1%.
In this smooth, mellow beer, Garage Brewing has succeeded in evoking all the positive qualities of one of America’s favorite taste treats, the distinguished Peanut Butter Cup. Although it doesn’t send us to the moon with the sugary, chocolate punch of its confectionary similars, it surely stirs up a nostalgic, childhood satisfaction. Its velvety, dessert flavors, make it an undeniably perfect pairing for not only a delicious duo of peanut butter cups, but an impeccable sidekick for a decadent slice of chocolate cake, or just as sublime of an indulgence all on its own.
