Year of New Beer: 82 Nutty Bars Walk Into A Keg, Mirror Twin Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 03/26/2019

Using their milk stout Cowabunga Dude as the base, MT gives it a chocolate peanut butter twist with the addition of Nutty Bars. Yes, the Little Debbie ones. And yes, the beer comes out tasting like them. More chocolate and roasted malts on the nose than peanut butter, with hints of lactose sweetness. The peanut butter definitely comes through in the taste department, pairing up with milk chocolate and a late-arriving tinge of vanilla. Finishes pretty sweet, but overall a solid brew. Kudos to Mirror Twin for taking on the challenge of using such an unusual ingredient
