3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a minimal wispy brown head. The nose is awesome, tons of dry roasted peanuts with some roasted malt and lighter chocolate notes. Really nutty smelling. The flavor is lighter on the peanut butter, but thatís probably a good thing. Slightly sweet Stout base with some coffee and chocolate. The nutty flavor does emerge a bit stronger on the finish though. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and therefore a bit watery with minimal carbonation. This could stand to be beefed up a bit on the malt bill. Interesting beer, but not a favorite among the few chocolate peanut butter beers Iíve had.

Very good chocolate beer with a slight peanut butter flavor, very smooth. I thought this was the best beer they have on tap at Bandwagon.

Pours black with a rambunctious head of soda like bubbles that fell as fast as a soda to a thin layer on top, then to a film. No lace. Nose is peanut butter and jelly sandwich on cheap white bread. You can almost smell the crusts. The fruit is obscure so itís just a sweet smell over a salted peanut. There was a hint of bitter chocolate int he nose but faint. Salty and malty. Taste is all peanut and really does resemble peanut butter. Body is thin and well carbonated. Roasted malt. No chocolate on the palate at all and the raspberry or jam flavor is noticeable in the aftertaste. Has a strange little bitter. The body of the beer is smooth and silky even.

pours deep brown with a thick foamy tan head...decent retention. aroma has tart dark fruit atop choc and natural peanut butter...almost a raspberry jelly thing. flavor has dark fruit and roast up front...almost comes across like choclate and raspberry...mild nutty/peanut buttery undertones...slight tartness...possible infection. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/fruity/nutty. all in all this could use much more peanut butter and could be infected...comes off as a PB & raspberry J sammie. not sure the fruitiness is intended...maybe consistency issues given recent ratings.

Multiple samples @ Empire Brew Fest. Aroma is chocolate malt with organic peanut butter. Taste is roasted barley, chocolate malt, peanuts shells and peanut oil. Mouthfeel is creamy with low Co2. Very interesting stout. I had about 10 oz. of this brew and I think I could have drunk more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: Sweet aroma of chocolate, peanut butter, and roasted malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a brown head
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, sweet chocolate/peanut butter, and roast
Palate: The body is fairly light for the style, but plenty drinkable
I thought this one was pretty fun, and in general, not necessarily in a beer sense, Iím a fan of the chocolate and peanut butter combo.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at Seneca Lodge Brewfest. 03DE11.
App.: Deep brown-black, no head.
Aroma: Tight, bright black coffee, tangy-nutty, a hint of unpleasant barf.
Palate: Medium body, very limited effervescence, a bit astringent.
Flav.: Dark-roasted malts, grape gum, somewhat nutty, not terrible, a little odd; dry with limited bitterness and a fairly long mouth-coating finish.
Not as expected. Not sure what was expected though...

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a dark chocolate brown. The aroma... holy fuck! Itís Nutter Butter! Ok, so itís not the exact same thing as described by the title, but itís awesome! The aroma makes me hungry for a Little Debbie box; pure Nutter Butter. The flavor unfortunately doesnít match up. Hoppier than Iíd want with a touch of Reeseís Pieces. Thin body with a finish of chocolate and burnt hops. Purely for sniffing.
