Bomber. Honestly better than I was expecting. You do get plenty of peanuts on the nose and taste along with some fruitiness. I have had far worse gimmicky beers than this one.

Draft at Churchkey during DC Craft Beer Week. Not sure who’s beer this was, but thanks! Pitch black color, smooth black oil notes, with a small tan head. Aroma was light roast, plenty of nutty notes, grape jelly notes. Flavor was like a liquid peanut butter and jelly donuts. Interesting. pretty good. Will keep my eye out for this one in the future.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark thick ale with a rich, well balanced flavor and aromatic profile.
Creamy smooth. Peanut butter lends more of an enticing very nutty note than just one that’s specifically pb. Subtle contribution of (grape?) jelly.
Fine, rich, nut bread aftertaste.

Pours a dark cola into a shaker. Mocha head quickly crackles and recedes to skim surface. Peanut, vanilla, and milk chocolate aromas. Sharp and watery upfront turning to chocolate and peanut in the medium length sweet grape finish.
