3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of peanut butter, yep! Flavor of peanuts up front followed by a sweet malty finish. Overall, I guess it’s more like a honey roasted peanut ale. Interesting beer- I’ve never had a peanut flavored beer that wasn’t a stout. This one is well done though and drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a thin head. Doesn’t leave any lacing. Has very prominent peanut notes on the nose which my anticipation of the beer. Beautiful roasted peanuts on the tongue but there’s a body to the beer as well which completes the illusion. Finishes clean. Best beer I’ve had from these guys.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-08-16. Dark amber body with a small beige head that fades. Awesome peanuty aroma, notes of roast peanuts and fresh peanut butter. 9+ Flavour is similar, with strong roast peanut and peanut butter character. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate with light carbonation. The peanut character dominates over the base beer a lot so you’re enjoyment of the beer will depend how much you like that, but it was surprisingly good to me! Not sure it is particularly repeatable but I enjoyed it. Growler at Campground Brewdown.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler at CGBD. Pours orange gold with a thin head. Loads of peanut butter, medium sweetness, and low bitterness. Quick finish and medium body. Like a Shorts beer, they hit the mark with this one, but I’m not sure it’s anything I’d ever want to drink again, despite the fact that it’s rather tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Smells like Reese’s Pieces. Soft peanut butter, warm malt. Loads of peanut butter, malty with a light bitterness and gentle sweetness into the finish. Refreshing to try a peanut butter beer that wasn’t a stout or porter, this was really nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Campground Throwdown 2, growler, thanks jtclockwork. Minimal white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma and taste are peanut butter -- great job of imparting those qualities. Light-medium body, light stickiness. Had it been thicker...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with a medium off white head. Aroma has a definite peanut butter note atop malty and slightly toasted notes. Flavor is lightly roasted malts...slight fruitiness and dry leaves...nutty/peanut buttery notes creep in. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is malty with a peanut butter accent. Damn i love peanut butter in my beer!
