Prominent chocolate nuttiness on the nose with full flavor on the palate. Creamy oatmeal fused with peanut puree compliments rich caramel and roasted malts. Uniquely satisfying

12oz bottle shared by bring - thanks, Barry! I heard this one might be a little infected/tart, and what do you know...it was. Not necessarily a terrible thing though. Pours black with a nice one-finger peanut butter colored head that leaves light foam on the beer as it settles. Impressive for a beer that presumably has head-killing peanut oils in it. Aroma is roast and lots of peanut butter, with some wild tartness. Flavor is very similar to the aroma. Really a great peanut butter flavor in there. Without the tartness, this could be an impressive beer, and hell, itís still not bad. It is interesting, thatís for sure, especially with the lactic tartness. Medium bodied and fairly smooth on the palate with mild acidity. I like what they did here, and appreciate the fact that itís probably tough to add peanuts without getting the beer infected in some way. My advice is to drink this as fresh as possible!

Aroma: "You got chocolate in my peanut butter!". Dark chocolate and peanut butter, straight up. The flavor, though, is a bit off. Thin and acidic, with an unpleasant astringency; more like peanut skins and shells than nuts.

Black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma is very fruity with heavy nuts and a touch of hops. Flavor has tons of sour lactic notes. Everything else is pretty much buried underneath that. Finishes sour, astringent. Oh well.

12 oz. bottle, Deep brown hue with a frothy beige head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, peanut, herbal hops, toasted malt, oatmeal and a hint of coffee esters. The taste is a cool balance of fruit, chocolate, and toasted malts and peanut. Some grassy and herbal notes as well along with some coffee. The mouth feel is lush and oily, medium-bodied and very smooth.

Poured a beautiful silky black with a 6-inch dense tan-colored creamy head that settled ever so slowly. The nose suggests dark roast and sour notes with a strong hint of peanuts and oatmeal cookies. If I had tasted this blind, I would have suggested it was a medium-bodied farm-house ale with a snappy finish. This is tasty and fun; Unexpected but delicious. Very well-developed Belgian lace forms and stays put. The stout lingers with definite peanut, oatmeal and chocolate notes. Excellent at cellar temperature. Chilling further would restrain the expressive nature of this stout. Shorts Brewing is brewing some interesting beer. Must get back to the store to see what else they have made . . .

This was the next on the list after the PB&J. Once again thanks to Toby. Pours out a dark brown almost black topped with a small brown head. Aroma of peanut butter along with some light roast. Taste more of the peanut butter, the roast coffee, and plenty of bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2010 had this one around 10 days ago. i recall a noticeable peanut smell. interesting flavor. i recall a tartness on the finish.. overall i would say sweet, peanuty. interesting flavors going on here. iíd recommend trying one just because itís different. UPDATE: 12-8-2010 ... I think last yearís batch was infected.. this one was good. LOTS OF PEANUTS. medium dark pour, a bit thin looking. very drinkable, not a ton of carbonation, not a ton of roast. unique in itís peanuttyness. decent brew thatís worth a try.

Dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma has some wonderful peanut butter and peanut oil with a hint of molasses, roasted malt and a touch of chocolate. Flavor has peanuty goodness mixed with peanut oil. Kind of odd. And this bottle had a little sourness. Would have been amazing if not for the sourness. Damn.

(bottle - 12 oz) Pitch black motor oil pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is a whole lot of roasted and burnt malts with some light peanut and peanut oil. Very heavy coffee aroma. Flavor begins with strong roasted notes and some peanut butter hints before moving to a very strong and tangy finish. Aftertaste is lingering peanut butter with some more of that tannic tang. Definitely interesting and the peanuts were rather subdued.
