I am standing in the supermarket beer section looking for something unique to write about this week.  I am literally standing there staring into the cooler when I see a familiar orange and yellow color scheme.  Looking closer I see the name Peanut Butter Temptress.  I start thinking NO WAY!  I love peanut butter and peanut butter cups are my favorite candy, so I had to give it a try.

A bottle of Peanutbutter Tempterest, from Lakewood Brewing, is next to a pint glass filled with a Dark beer with almost no head floating on top.

The Pour

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a pint glass.  Peanut Butter Temptress pours a very deep brown color with a one-finger head of light brown colored foam. The head has a light level of retention, fading rather fast and leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. The aroma of the brew is quite heavy of a roasted malt smell mixed with a big showing of a nice sweet roasted peanut aroma, a blast of chocolate, and a little bit of vanilla and creme. Overall, the aroma is rather nice and creates a dessert-like inviting smell overall.

The Taste of Peanut Butter Temptress

The taste Peanut Butter Temptress begins with a very strong and robust dark roasted malt flavor mixed with molasses and brown sugar. Along with these flavors comes some cola-like tastes, a bit of chocolate, as well as a moderate showing of some raisin and prune. While the peanut butter taste is lighter up front, it does grow in nature, providing a nice nutty balance to the sweeter tastes. At the same time, some vanilla and a slight increase in the molasses and toasted flavors come to the tongue, leaving one with a sweeter, roasted, and nice roasted peanut flavored taste to linger on the tongue.   The body of the brew is thicker and chewier with a carbonation level that is quite low. For the dark and sweet flavors mixed with the roasted peanut tastes, the feel is spot one, creating a more dessert sipper.

Brewers Description

“Consider this the beer equivalent of a peanut butter cup. We took our rich and dreamy milk stout and made it extra with chocolate, peanuts, and a touch of sea salt. The result is a creamy, peanut buttery treat that’s fit for the candy aisle. Enjoy chilled in your favorite glass, which isn’t a candy coating, but it’ll do.”

The Temptress Series 

Lakewood Brewing has a series of four brews in this series. I really need to find the rest of these beers and try them.  In addition to Peanut Butter Temptress the produce:

Double chocolate Temptress

Salted Carmel Temptress

French Quater Temptress 

Opinion Peanut Butter Temptress

As I opened the first of these bottles and that aroma hit my nose I thought oh no, this is going to be too sweet. I was wrong.  This is a great beer.  The taste is on point for a stout.  This beer is exactly what you expect from a peanut butter stout.  I would not serve this with a meal, save it for the after-dinner beer.  I think it is a little pricy at $13.50 for only a four-pack.  You cannot taste the 9.1% ABV so this is a beer that you take in moderation.  Highly Recommend Peanut Butter Temptress.
