Crowler shared by Curran tonight.

Pours a dark black, with a 1.5 inch white head, and a good amount of lacing.

Lots of fresh roasted peanut butter on the nose, with a good dosing of coffee and dark chocolate.

This is simple, and all the expected flavors come through nicely. The simplicity doesn't hurt it though- it tastes damn good anyway. Sweet, roasted peanut butter is here, but isn't actually the star of this one, surprisingly. The coffee flavor comes through more strongly, actually, which is nice, because I prefer coffee flavor to peanut butter. There's a good amount of cocoa powder flavor, along with a pretty significant roasty malt flavor. The flavor is surprisingly intense for the lower ABV.

This is medium bodied, thick for the ABV, but definitely not thick compared to other larger stouts. This has a nice and creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate level of carbonation.

Though a little bit simple, this beer showed a really talented use of adjuncts. Everything tasted real, and all the flavors came through nicely. Nicely done here.

@WesMantooth Bless You Sir!!!

This OHIO gem was gratefully received from said gentleman in NBS BIF #1
Pours a rich mahogany roast that roils forth a mocha colored froth that bursts with peanut butter aroma. Oh My God! The smell is amazing.
Flavors inclide a slightly chocolaty malt, a nice gentle roast, some coffee, and a tad of peanut butter that leans toward malt powder.
The mouthfeel is fine, just under chewy. And the finish leaves a melange of the chocolate, peanut butter, malt, and subtle roast.
But...going back to the nose. Thankfully this is a big can. (Of which I want MORE). So I poured some more, a hard pour. Let that bad boy foam up a good 3 fingers. Ahhh, bliss. I could smell this for hours. But, now the experiment: I start sipping pure head, and it's mainly like it smells. Wow! Peanut Butter with malt in the backseat.
I wonder how snorting this would be.

Thanks @WesMantooth!
