On tap at the Oak Cafe. Pours a dark-ish shade of brown; completely opaque in the middle with some translucency only at the edges where some red tints are shining through. The quarter-inch head settles quickly to a thin, tan collar. Some light sheets of lacing are left at the top of the glass. Pretty decent looking for a brown ale.

Nutty-centric in the aroma, and at first, it's more of a straight-up "nut" aroma, rather than peanut butter. However, with some time, some buttery and cocoa sweetness from the malt joins in and gives off more of the creamy peanut butter vibe. Peppers of any kind or any thai-like spices are subdued, almost to the point of being nonexistent. The cocoa nib-like aroma is stronger than any kind of pepper.

Peanut butter is definitely the biggest proponent in the flavor profile; creamy and lightly sweet with a touch of balancing bitter roast from the malts. Surprisingly heavy chocolate-y presence for a brown ale; I'm wondering if some type of chocolate product wasn't also used as an adjunct? There's even a light touch of char and smoke on the tail end... unique and different, that's for sure.

I still really don't get any chilies or peppers in the flavor, either. Many chile beers don't inherit much flavor from the peppers, rather just a burn on the back of the tongue. I'm not even getting that. Maybe... MAYBE just a slight tingle near the latter half of the beer. But you could tell me this had no peppers in it and I'd believe you. Thin-medium bodied with ample carbonation and a slick, wet mouth feel.

Different, and not the best peanut butter beer I've had, but not that bad, either. I like the attempt at something different, and I never thought I'd say this, but I wish the peppers were kicked up a notch or two. Solid, but something I'd probably pass up if I saw it again.

Serving type: on-tap
