Drank from a 1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz./750 ml bottle
Served in a pint glass
Thanks to my sister Vanessa for including this with my birthday gift.

Awesome graphics. Gotta love that bright pink bottle. As for the beer, it poured a dark brown, bordering on black. The liquid was topped by a near two-finger tall, tight, frothy, khaki colored crown. A substantial collar of sticky lacing coated the glass as the head receded.

The nose was straightforward yet really unique. Chocolate syrup notes dominated. Peanut butter was also quite noticeable. Good amount of roast. A dry, chalky yeast note was present as well. With time, the peanut butter faded.

Unlike the aroma, the flavor profile was quite rough around the edges. Intense roasty notes were apparent right off the bat. The beer came across as slightly acrid. There was a notable chocolate fudge presence. The finish contained lots of bitter, earthy hops, which seemed a bit distracting and out of place.

On the palate, the beer felt a bit thin. The liquid contained a light, bubbly, frothy effervescence. Not terrible, but this beer could have benefitted from a bigger body.

I really wanted to like this beer, but between the acrid roastiness and the intense hoppiness on the finish, it was a rather tough session. At its pricepoint, this should have been far better.

I enjoy this brew. I'm not one for the mixing in of fruits. I like my beers dark, thick and often roasted. But this is different and I like it. It starts with a sutle chocolate and ends with a bang of banana, and I light peanut butter flavor. I can actually smell it more than taste it.

I enjoy this very much and it one of my normal drinker.

why oh why oh why am i doing this to myself

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass

A- pours black with a two finger light tan head. Looks fine.

S- very weird aroma, with the chocolate and banana overpowering everything and almost smelling rancid.

T- the banana overwhelms everything. It tastes like a banana taffy of some sort. The peanut butter is really nonexistent, and the chocolate is almost an afterthought, coming in at the end

M- body is fine, on the thin side

O- I don't know what exactly they brewed with to get these flavors...but what the hell? If you stripped off the chocolate and peanut from the label, I wouldn't even know they were supposed to be represented. What a mess.
