3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14 thanks to Ian.
Light black with a moderate tan swirl and edgeing.
Nose is peanut butter, chocolate, toffee fudge.
Taste comprises much the same, good dose of PB - done fairly well, not on the cheap and not overly sweet.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, lightly roasted notes in a lightly drying close.
Decent for what it is, one of the better PB beers.

Bomber from mixmasterob. Pours very dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate peanuts. Like a bag of them. Med body. It’s very chocolate, very dark malt, and peanut. Chocolate is dark and dominant. But peanuts tend to stay past the finish. Quite an unusual and excellent ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Dark brown to black color with a red glare coming through, average sized off-white to light brown head. Aroma is malts and loads and loads of chocolate. Taste malts, chocolate, quite a lot of vanilla, light to moderately bitter. Medium body and carbonation. A bit too much vanilla for me, but a pretty nice beer for sure.
