3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque brownish-black from the cask with no real head or lacing to speak of. Aroma of roasted malts, peanut, coffee, and slight dark chocolate. Taste is way more of the peanut and chocolate than the smell. Great stuff, well balanced, interesting, a good dessert beer.

Bottle. The peanut butter is subtle and nearly unpredictable (to me) under the hops and malts. The chocolate is prominent though - tastes as if cacao nibs were involved rather than cocoa powder. I also appreciate the 6.7% abv which allows for a mellower brew and head space for an extra beer if your up for it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Proof. Black pour with small creamy tan head that fades to a small ring. Well this smells exactly like a Reese's peanut buttercup and I fucking love those shits. Flavor tends to be very similar to the nose, although more restrained. Not bad, I can get down with this I just wish it was bigger and more rich.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and smallish tan head that recedes to nothing. Smell is nice once warmed to room temp. Roasted nuts, peanuts are prevelant, cocoa nibs. The pour also reveals a thin body and the finish confirms. Taste is dominated by the peanut butter but certainly not overwhelming. Chocolate the comes thru and the flavored integrate nicely. The flavor is there but the finish is a bit of a let down. Note this must be drank closer to room temp for the flavor to pop. Still mediocre due to thinness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from JCB. Thanks! Deep brown pour with tan head. Nice sweet peanut butter in the nose with some semi-sweet chocolate/cacao nibs and roasted malt with faint fruity esters. Flavor is lightly acidic roasted malt, semi-sweet dark chocolate, faint cola, and black olive. Peanut butter just sneaks in at the end. Lighter body and void of cloying sweetness. Very drinkable. Could have used a little more of the peanut butter flavor. A good concept beer that is well executed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark brown. Aroma is of peanut butter, malt. Taste is of peanut butter, malt, sweet. Palate: Medium body. Overall: A bit flat. Forgettable. I guess a peanut butter beer is not my thing.
