Cask at Bruery initiation party 2013. Sludgy brown-blackish pour, mostly flat and oily, and you can see the peanut butter blended into the beer. Very sweet and thick, milk chocolate, peanut butter, vanilla, bourbon, and some booze. Tasty, bourbon, peanut oil, and reese’s peanut butter cups. I enjoyed it.

Milky, turbid black pour with an Exxon-Valdez quality oil slick on top. Luckily, the appearance is the only bad part about this beer. Great peanut butter and dark chocolate aromas, almost chocolate-liqueur. Some booze, a lot of bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar, and a bit of dark fruit, actually. The flavor has a slight bitterness from the cacao nibs, but really intense peanut butter flavor which is very enjoyable. Tons of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. Subtle coffee and dark fruit notes. Really oily and rich feel on the tongue.
