UPDATED: APR 16, 2015 growler, this one was very tasty!! Rich roasty dry porter was critical to complement these sweet adjuncts without being too cloying. Delicious grapy and figgy flavors throughout.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Waxed flip-top growler. Delightful aroma of roasted salty peanut, granola, brown sugar, sweet dates, and a brief hint of maple syrup. Semi-occluded muddy brown in appearance with a thick tan ring dotted with large bubbles. The taste features an odd blend of flavors with peanuts, roasted corn and cauliflower, dark chocolate, warm milk, faint nutmeg and ginger, light molasses, and a strange root beer and sugary raisin finish. Chalky texture. Not bad, but the flavors never seem to quite mesh.

Pours black with a medium creamy mocha head. Aroma has roasty malts and dark fruits...just a touch of nuttiness...A faint raisiny sweetness. Flavor follows suit and adds layers of char and more nuttiness that almost hints at PB. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a roasty/nutty finish.
