Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a deep black body. Aroma is dark chocolate, cocoa nibs and peanuts. Mouthfeel is medium to soft - light actually, with notes of chocolate covered peanuts, fudge, cocoa, soft vanilla and more nut character. Really nice.

GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a nice darker blackish hue, good opaque body with just a gentle brownish glow on the edges. Firmer head atop stays frothy, light brown with good stick around, lacing. Aromas are nice and toasty, firmer chocolate elements and cocoa meet gentle vanilla, a touch of earthiness, nutty, toasty with biscuits. Bigger nose greets and pleases. Initial is medium bodied, a nice airy quality to the body makes this one go down easy. A bit creamy and chocolate driven as we enter, some fudge, cocoa nibs hit with gentle roast, nuts and earth coming on. A faint coffee waft, more chocolate, gentle vanilla and nougat. Airy, light and pretty crushable, this one packs on the flavor well without overburdening the palate with sticky or firm cloying body. Backend is dry, a bit toasty with some cleaner toast and roast, gentle dollop of sweetness. Pretty solid stuff here. Glad I finally got to try it. Flavors and palate and how they work together really is what makes this beer neate.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 Smells like a standard stout. Tastes like a pretty solid stout as well except for notes of peanut and chocolate in the aftertaste that are pretty nice. The candy bar taste is more muted than I would prefer, but the aftertaste is a nice touch to an otherwise regular stout. Body is medium and smooth. I’ll happily order this one any time I see it available.

Somehow forgot to add this one in from my notes. Here we go! Wow, right off the bat the beer’s namesake rings true on the nose, and it continues to the palate. Liquid Snickers bar. Beer like this can’t help but make you smile - so creative, so fun, so carefree. The palate has more than enough viscosity to support the flavor, which is no small feat at only 5.8%. Somehow it never gets cloying either, again a testament to the brewer, as the ingredient list screams toothache. Overall, just a wonderful brew.

Growler with big thanks to Dak! My first AZ rate! Pours Coca Cola brown with just a little off white head. Aroma is peanuts, chocolate and caramel. Smells like a snickers tastes. Roasty stout flavors with chocolate and peanut. A bit of smoke in the finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6995) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours with a deep mahogany body that has amber edges and supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma is pretty big with molasses, vanilla, maybe some maple syrup, toffee, graham cracker and chocolate. There are dark roasted malts that are well off in the background and pretty well covered up by all the sweetness. The taste starts with a sweet mix of vanilla, molasses and then malt sweetened chocolate goodness. To midway some dark roasted malts and toffee drizzled dark toasted bread peak out amid a sea of various slick sweetness. Yummy.

Multiple pours at GABF. Pours a black color with tan head. Roasty, chocolate, peanuts, and caramel flavors. I was a bit skeptical about this beer, but it was pretty good; pretty good but not exceptional.

On tap @ Fate. Pours deep black with a tan mocha head. Aroma is peanuts, chocolate, cream, caramel and faint roasty smoked coffee. Taste is chocolate, milky caramel and roasted peanuts. Very balanced, medium bodied creamy amazing stout. Glad to have this in AZ!

Multiple pours sampled at GABF2013. Pours black with a tan head. Oddly generic sweet aroma with a touch of saltiness. Some cheap milk chocolate notes. You know, the waxy kind you get at a gas station. Flavor is very sweet with mild roast and some salt. Very, very sweet. Medium bodied. This is just messy and not that good. Probably the worst example of hype I’ve ever seen. This is barely mediocre.

On tap: The aroma consists of milk chocolate, peanuts, and light vanilla. It’s a dark brown, virtually black, with a one finger creamy (nitro) head with good retention. There’s some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate and light vanilla. The finish has light-moderate peanuts with just a touch of salt. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, really tasty...Sweet without being too sweet.
