Bomber. Nose of deep, strong chocolate and hard, dark roast. The peanut butter is super evident in the glass but not out of the bottle; it’s unmistakable and I’m wondering how they solved a tricky problem in process. Stouty brown-black pour with a creamy, rocky light brown head. Watery light body, smooth and gentle, taste is semi-sweet with pb&c, though they’re backed off and a general smooth porter flavor rules the day. Impressed that this wasn’t a massive failure.

Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Big peanuts on the nose blending quite lovely with the chocolate maltiness. Lots of peanuts on the tongue. Very smooth and velvety on the tongue. Really fantastic stuff.

Bottle for app vintner - pours cola with little head. Aroma is peanut butter cup, peanuts and chocolate. Taste is sweet with a minerality to it. Palate is thick and creamy with a slightly astringent finish. I thought this was weird at first, but it totally works. Yum!

Solid brew, and I bumped my rating, since I enjoy drinking original beers. Subtle peanut butter smell and taste. Slightly roasty. Well balanced.

Pretty good stuff. Aroma is light raw peanut, some roast, and plenty of chocolate. Pour is dark brown with a thin khaki head. Taste is better than I thought it would be. A nice balance of roasted peanut butter and smooth chocolate. Just the right amount of sweetness. Great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quick-take review on this one. Pours opaque, ultra-dark brown with a substaintial tan head. The aroma is subtle, but roasted peanuts are clearly evident. On the palate, you’re first hit with mild chocolate and roastiness and it’s only on the finish that you taste the peanut butter. It sounded sort of gross when I first heard of it, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Pours the color of coffee with a visibly light body and thin wispy tan head. Looks kind of flaccid. Nose is weird, like smelling peanut butter from far away after the oil has oxidized. Something in there you could probably call chocolate.... and maybe some dark fruit. Kind of muted on the nose. Flavor is not to my liking... old peanut butter on the finish. Some cacao maybe? Papery and thin with a watery finish/body. Man, ’Liquid Bliss’ may have been a reach in nomenclature here.

Pours black with khaki head. Smells like chocolate and peanut butter. Taste is the same. Not a lot of depth but a fun desert type beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared with Kristen on Christmas Eve 2012. Dark clear brown pour verging on black with very good light brown head. Too cold on first pour. Almost no aroma. And the flavor profile simply seemed like moderately flat sweet stout. Nothing special or peanutbutter about it. Upon warming up, the flavors and aroma come out much more, however, it’s not all that pleasant. Fake cocoa like hot chocolate powder, and a vegetal, earthy pervading aroma and flavor that I presume are supposed to be the peanutbutter, but just comes across as a weird off flavor. This has been one of my biggest dissapointments of the side project series.

32 ounce growler from Greenville, poureda dark black color with a huge kahki head, aroamas of chocolate, light peanut butter, some toabacco, and light earth. Flavors are the same chocolaty earth up front with a dry peanutbutter roastiness in the back. Nice beer overall.
