Draft. Dark brown. Thick head. Has a fun peanut and chocolate character in both the nose and the palate. Maybe a shade thin. yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle, 12oz. A dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, dark beige head. Quite oily. Lots of chocolate and peanut butter in the aroma, some roasted notes in the back. It’s medium bodied and pleasantly carbonated, rather oily and surprisingly dry on the palate. Peanut butter, chocolate and a nice bitterness in the flavor. There’s not much bitterness, but it suits the beer just fine. Lasting peanut butter and chocolate finish. I can’t really decide if I like it or not. Well, I like it, but it’s a bit intense in a way. But it’s sure nice anyway. 150619 Meilby (11692) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle 355ml @ Hotel room, Comfort Inn Downtown, Washington, DCfiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of rosted malt, chocolate, toffee, peanuts and lactose. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long chocolate, peanuts and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Tasting at Matt’sMaddog (528) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2015
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.
Draft at WoB in Savannah, GA. Aromas and flavors of cocoa and peanut butter. Creamy, medium body. Very good and rich.

Bottle - Peanut and dark chocolate. Deep Amber with a small beige head. Lots of peanut and chocolate. A little artificial in taste, but still pretty decent. mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
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. lightbias (455) - USA - JUN 5, 2015
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. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium chocolate peanut sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew. BillWyce (1104) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2015
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.
