You know you love it- that candy that you still search for in your kids' Halloween bags. We love it too, so we made a grown-up version of your favorite candy treat. This beer pours dark and rich, with the aroma of peanut butter and chocolate and a full body. It's not too sweet, so you can enjoy more than one. Be the first of your friends to offer this beer, and watch the reactions as suspicion turns to a smile. This recipe has some flexibility- you can add unsweetened cocoa powder (the kind for baking/NOT included) to the boil, or cocoa nibs to the secondary. Both give very good results, and you can make the choice when selecting your recipe.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
Milk Stouts are a thick bodied style that contains lactose (milk sugar), which adds to the body and sweetness of the beer. Adding fresh cocoa nibs (or even unsweetened cocoa powder - NOT INCLUDED) and natural peanut butter extract into the secondary fermenter turns a milk stout into a sweet treat- a dessert beer of sorts.
