Next we have the outstanding Peanut Butter Soul-Ution Imperial Stout. This beer offers a rich and indulgent aroma and tasting experience reminiscent of Belching Beaver’s iconic Peanut Butter stout, but with a deeper and purer peanut and roasted malt character and almost double the abv.

As we pour the Peanut Butter Soul-Ution into our glasses, we witness a deep, opaque black color capped by a dense tan head that lingers on and leaves behind a faint lacing on the glass after every sip. The intense aroma of freshly roasted peanuts, dark chocolate, and deeply toasted malts hits our olfactory senses as soon as we bring the glass up to our noses. A nutty sweetness is present and showcases aromas of freshly ground peanut butter, hints of dark toffee, notes of molasses, and rich dark caramel. As we dive further into the aromas we’re treated to notes of toasted pumpernickel bread, roasted barley, and blackprinz malt.

Tasting the O’so Peanut Butter Soul-Ution confirms the rich aromas we encountered as lusciously rich flavors on the palate. We really enjoyed the bold flavors of roasted peanut butter and dark chocolate, and dark roasted malts coupled with notes of dark caramel and toasty toffee. As we continued to taste and explore the flavors we came across notes of bruleed brown sugar, dense molasses, and the hints of toasted pumpernickel bread the aromas pointed to. To top it all off was a great balance between sweet and bitter notes as the Magnum and Nugget hops came through towards the finish.

The O’so Peanut Butter Soul-Ution is a full-bodied imperial stout with a round creamy mouthfeel. The smooth mousse leads to a long, lingering finish displaying a bit of sweetness and a bit of drying bitterness. What a treat!

The Peanut Soul-Ution will mature nicely for the next few years if you’re inclined to wait, but it drinks very well now and further aging isn’t necessary for full enjoyment. We recommend pairing with spicy Thai food topped with chopped peanuts, or chicken satay with peanut dipping sauce, as well as other skewered and grilled meats. For dessert, peanut butter and fudge brownies make a great pairing, as do any number of desserts containing chocolate and/or peanut butter.
