3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark black, light edges. Not pitch black. the 2 finger head fades to a 1 finger brown head with some tight lacing and it sticks around for a while (over 10 minutes). nice resilient head. The smells fantastic. Sweet chocolate, marshmallow and walnuts with nice peanut butter taste. a faint oak and raisin on the nose as well. Very creamy mouthfeel. sweet chocolate. I like the mild bitterness, maybe would be nice if it was slightly sweeter. nutty finish. peanut butter is very integrated.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown and thick. Nice creamy looking head. Aroma is heavy on espresso and chocolaty peanut buttery. Taste is sweet, almost cloying at first. There is a definite oily nut flavor accompanied by dark fruity undertones with a very smoky finish. Hoped for a fuller mouth feel from the appearance, although it is very smooth and easy to drink. Overall it is very close to delicious, but not quite there. Sidenote: my wife loves this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head and good retention. The aroma is peanut butter and toffee. The taste is similar with lots of peanuts, peanut butter, and toffee all in a base that features chocolate and a hint of hazelnuts. Not too sweet and nearly perfectly balanced. Over all one of the best!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 shared by bastarda at oldmanriver’s potluck post-Nikolaus tasting 12/2014. Diluted Snickers and pindakaas give way to a flat sweet porter with a hoppy, metallic edge. Butter is slightly caramelised, suspected rancid before. Not sure what is underneath this artificial goodness, maybe a basic brewing kit porter? Confidently exploring the edge of what craft can and needs to do in an increasingly competitive market before toppling into its own pastiche.

Bottle. Nice notes of roast, chocolate malts and nuts. Body was a bit thin for my liking, but the brew was solid overall. Nice dry and sweet finish. Not bad.

Dark malts, very little aroma.... taste is super weak, where is the chocolate? Maybe a bad bottle?
