Black pour, pretty much lacking head, but its from a cask so its not a big deal. Aroma = black tuesday + peanut butter. For the sake of those who have never had BT: chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and wood.
Taste is pretty much straight up the aroma description. But it is better at hiding the big time alcohol than the base beer itself. A very smooth experience given the lack of carbonation, but this is one where you can truly believe it was not only made that way, but also intentionally as it allows so much of the flavor to resonate the entire time.
I would think would be a must try for any fan of Black Tuesday and peanut butter. Must have been unsalted PB because I couldn't taste that component of peanut butter.
You know what I did that was totally awesome? Mixed my pour of peanut butter & bals with a pour of chocolate rain, oh, that beer was a perfect 5 across all categories (except maybe appearance).
Drank at the barrel tasting party.

Cask at the Bruery -bal tasting.
Pours a flat, black color with a few bubbles from the gravity pour. The peanut butter smell doesn't come through too much at first, but definitely more as it warms. Tons of chocolate, booze, and vanilla, too. Intense flavor of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and of course, peanut butter. Almost like a nutter butter flavor. Full bodied with low carbonation.

At The Bruery barrel tasting event.
The beer pours pitch black. No light penetrates. No head or lacing to speak of. The nose is peanut butter and chocolate. Taste follows closely. It opens with big peanut butter and chocolate flavors. Seriously, it tastes like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. It's incredibly smooth. Alcohol from the base beer is there, but it's quite well integrated. Brown sugar, vanilla and a bit of molasses are in evidence but the peanut butter and chocolate take center stage. The beer is full bodied and quite viscous. Carbonation is largely absent, but this adds to the experience. It's very smooth and creamy. A chocolate/peanut butter truffle comes to mind. Overall another great one-off from The Bruery. If you see this one somewhere, have it. You won't regret the experience.

Had 2 tastings of this at the Reserve Society Barrel aged tasting event, session 1.
A: Poured from the cask into a Bruery taster glass, the beer pours a motor oil black, with just a razor thin ring of bubbles.
S: Peanut Butter Aroma is quite potent to me up front, and make me hungry for a PB & J sandwich. Also scents of chocolate, and vanilla.
T: Mirrors the nose, and the black Tuesday base really shines through, with flavors of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and medium roasted malt. The Peanut butter added just a kiss of salt too, but it in NO way distracted or tasted salty really, anymore then unsalted peanuts are salty, if that makes any sense.
M: Some warmth, no carbonation to speak of really, and a medium to full viscosity.
O: Quite tasty, and just another great Black Tuesday variant. Tyler said they simply melted Peanut butter in for this, and it really comes through, in a tasty way.

On cask at the Bruery for Black Friday 2011,
A: Pours black with no head to speak of. Good colour.
S: Vanilla, chocolate, light notes of peanut butter but that aspect was not as overt as and adjunct as compared to Grey Monday and Chocolate Rain.
T: Rich dark chocolate flavour, the peanut butter comes in at the finish and works well, but never becomes a huge part of the beer. Tasty as usual as with the other BT derivatives.
M: Beyond full-bodied, rich, a feel in the mouth like good oloroso sherry. Big, no carbonation, but it doesn't need it.
O: Good stuff, much more like regular Black Tuesday than the other variations I've had. Certainly worth a try.

Went to The Bruery on Black Friday and got a glass on cask. Color was dark black as it came out, with shades of red as I examined thinner parts. The scent was extremely peanut buttery, but was a bit surprised with a chocolatey taste instead. The peanut butter came out with the aftertaste, it was just a bit confusing being caught off guard. It wasn't too heavy of a double, and hung around well. Definitely a good find.

Poured at the Reserve Society 2nd Annual Barrel Tasting.
Appearance: black, pours no head and no lacing.
Smell: peanut butter, chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, a bit boozy, oak, leather.
Taste: peanut butter, chocolate, bourbon, sweet, oak, vanilla, roasted malt,boozy.
Mouthfeel: full bodied, minimal carbonation, boozy.
Overall: a great beer. Very complex, boozy, but not overly so considering the ABV. Tastes a lot like a peanut butter cup. Drinkability is high. A great experience.
