2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasting at Matt’s
Black color, small frothy head. Nice aroma of roasted peanuts and dark malt. Dry mouthfeel, some dark caramel flavor, the peanut comes in an artificial way; very low bitterness.
It would work better with a sweeter and bolder beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small off-white head. Aroma brings out loads of fresh peanuts -- not a whole lot else. Flavour isn’t as nice, but still solid, with freshly roasted peanuts (though not peanut butter). Pretty simple, with not much to it. It’s pretty decent, but nothing exciting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The bottle is a bit cold, and I like to have this style a bit closer to room temperature, but I’m antsy to try this and running out of evening. The liquid is a creamy, deep ruby-brown, capped with a chocolatey head; the soft depth quite porous and airy. I don’t think it will be here for long as it’s already becoming quite rocky as it erodes in the air.
The aroma is much more peanut accented than I have had with peanut butter beers in the past and I’m happily surprised with the combination of mild, sweet cocoa and the nutty accents entwined with it. The flavor on the first sip is very nice, but a bit dry and more bitter than I was led to believe I’d find per the aroma.
The head has taken little time to completely disappear, but the brew retains a fairly lively feel. The finish is comfortable, not terribly long lasting and slightly creamy. This beer is quite nice and I’m wishing I had room in my baggage to take one home for friends...

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted peanut, sweet chocolate aroma.

Poured semi-opaque cola brown with a 1-finger tan head. Aroma is mostly of peanut butter, with some milk chocolate notes beneath. Body is medium-to-full with a moderate oiliness. The finish is long, but mild. Flavor of peanut butter, with a note of bitterness underneath from the chocolate. A note of char lingers in the finish.

In one word: incredible! This beer does something that I never thought would work. It brings all of the deliciousness of peanut butter and chocolate to a beer in a way that is just salivating. With a smell like a Reece's Peanutbutter cup and a flavor that takes you straight back to the best PB&J sandwich that grandma ever made, this beer is a real treat! As rich and delicious as the flavors are, the most interesting thing about this beer is how drinkable it is. It's not as heavy and filling as the tongue leads you to believe. Dangerously tasty, the first sip just makes you want more and each sip becomes more delicious than the last. This is one of my top 10 all time favorite beers. A must-try!!!
