Pours black with an aroma of chocolate & peanut butter (not one more prominent than the other); smells just like a Reece’s cup. This us the best peanut butter stout that i’ve come across; better than sweet baby Jesus

Aroma - aroma is the 1st thing that hits you. It’s peanut shells, peanut butter, mashmallow and chocolate powder mix. Smells awesome.
Appearance - color is a black body, opaque body, and with nice off-white tan head about 1" high slithers down the glass.
Taste - off the charts. Tastes exactly what it’s advertised to be. Nutty, chocolate, some bitters in there, a little alcohol
Feel - body is full, the texture creamy and thick, the carbonation is soft, the finish long and nutty
Awesome stuff!!! Absolutely a must try.

On tap at Capones. Pours a black color with nice thick tan head. Aroma of peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, roast and earthiness. Sweet coffee spice start with plenty of chocolate and peanut butter throughout and vanilla on the back end. Starts rugged in texture but the vanilla smoothes out the back end. Really tasty. Complex.

This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance had a dark brown close to black color with a slim finger’s worth of off white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Stringy lacing glosses along the sides of the glass.
The smell was decadent peanut butter chocolate, pure and luscious in every sort of aspect.
The taste was definitely more Imperial stout as the peanut butter was there but more scaled back. I didn’t mind so much. The aftertaste was dry and somewhat had a peanut butter connotation to it. A semi - sweet sticky finish accompanies the end.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed pretty controlled and allowed a decent creaminess to roll over the tongue.
Overall, I say this was an exceptional AI/DS with the peanut butter part well executed. Definitely would have again!

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly and laces slightly. Aroma has a great peanut butter with a bit of bitter chocolate and a hint of dark grains. Flavor has more of the same with a great combination of dark chocolate and peanut butter with a hint of dark grains.

On tap at McGillins. Black in appearance with very little off-white foam. Aromas of sweet peanut butter mixed with cocoa. Toasty peanut butter on the palate, with a creamy finish.

Transfer from BA review on 12-1-12-
Served on tap in a snifter glass
Appearance – Served a deep black brew with a two finger cream colored head. The head faded over a moderate level of time to leave a fantastic level of lacing.
Smell- The smell is huge of chocolate and sweet peanut butter. It is like a peanut butter buckeye ball. Delicious.
Taste- The taste is much drier then the nose would suggest. It starts out of rather roasted and malty with a little bit of chocolate. As the flavor advances some flavors of a creamy peanut butter begin working their way into the taste. The peanut better and chocolate grow more intense as the taste moves on, with some of the roasted malt flavors dwindling a bit. Overall this creates a lighter dry peanut and cocoa flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. A bit of a thicker body as well as a lower carbonation level would have better accentuated the darker and peanut better flavors of the beer.
Overall – An interesting brew. Super sweet smelling, but much drier and roastier then expected from the nose. The only thing holding the brew back was the rather weak mouthfeel. Otherwise it is fantastic. Regardless it is one you should try if you get the chance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 Served on nitro-tap, regular tap, growler, and from the bottle....at the Spring House Taproom.
A – Pours jet black with a thick, creamy, two finger tall tan head leaving thick rings of lacing down the glass.
S – Smells of rich peanut butter, bittersweet chocolate, dark roasted malts, and a faint whiff of coffee grounds. While the PB aroma seems to be fading a bit there is still plenty there to let you know what this one is.
T - Starts off with a taste of the bittersweet chocolate quickly giving way to the strong peanut butter flavor and some dark roasted malt. The PB and chocolate are the perfect compliments to each other. The creamy feel begins to die down toward the end of the glass, leaving the body a bit thin. The finish is mostly dark roast, lingering for short while. I really liked this one, the flavors were all there.
M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Creamy feel with plenty of dark roast in the finish, lingering for some time after consumption.
O - Damn, this sure is one "yuck" beer. Not! If you can’t get chocolate PB from this beer I don’t know where you are gonna find it. I am glad we made the side trip down here to the taproom to try this one. Good stuff for sure.
