3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this hand bottle from the Iron Hill Media location. This beer was drank after it had warmed up quite a bit, which I think was a good thing.
The beer pours a very dark brown color with red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is peanut butter and cherries. Very strange but also very nice.
The flavor is peanut butter, cherries, roasted malt and some chocolate. This beer tastes like a chocolate-peanut butter- cherry stout. I have never had anything quite like it, but I really enjoyed it.
Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz hand bottle (big thanks to hopdog for this trade bonus beer) pours dark with tan head. The aroma is full assertive and drool inducing yumminess lofting up soft dense billows of rich chocolate, raisins, mildly tart red grapes, spicy oak and rich molasses. The taste is just as yummy with rich chocolate, dark roasted malts, vanilla sweetness, more chocolate and some tart grape notes. Midway and to the finish some spicy oak is noticed along with pleasing chocolaty goodness.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours brown with an off-white head. Nose is chocolate, cacao, slight roast, milk chocolate, and slight fruit presence. Flavor is similar with lingering sweet chocolate into the finish. Very enjoyable.

Lots going on here, but it’s all done delicately. Kudos for that. Coulda been a mess, but Burnside can pull off all kinds a crazy crap. A dark brown porter...light roast, pecan, very light smoke, whiskey, cherry. Semi sweet and dry. I’d get more."
